Using The Facebook Profile Box

I don’t have to tell you why you should be using Facebook as part of your marketing mix. We’re all using it, some more than others, and the effects by using it can be awesome.

Today, I’ll give you an interesting marketing advice.

You should consider using the Facebook profile box application.

The Facebook profile box app is a free application that lets you add a box to your profile. It will show on the left side, like this:

Facebook Profile Box

You can use this box to brand yourself, to add more information about yourself, and link to your websites. Or you can use the box to add a signup form to your AWeber newsletter.

Actually, you can use this box for whatever. It’s your choice.

The best part is that it’s visible on your profile to all the people who are visiting. A lot more people are probablly visiting your profile than you think.

    Hey thanks for the tip! I don't usually play around much with the apps on FB but I probably should. I'll have plenty to read with all the links you provided though. Great post!

    Hi Jens ! Is there any option for Feedburner signups ? This is really great way to get more subscribers.

  3. Hey Lydia,

    Actually I don't play around much either, but once in a while I find something worth telling. There are so many apps and so little time 🙂

  4. I think there is, you can add html and javascript code in the box. I haven't tried feedburner yet, but it shouldn't be a problem.

    Any idea how to show images through FBML in left side of fan page? Previously it was possible when boxes was in feature.

  8. I have been looking into this lately, and to me, it seems that this feature is not possible anymore. But I am not sure… I’ll let you know if I find any solution to this.
