How to Setup Custom Reply Messages for Facebook Pages

Recently we were asked to help setup a Facebook Business page and unless you follow the blogs on Facebook, each time you want to go in and make a change, they’ve updated their user interface and move things around. It’s supposed to make things easier but I beg to differ.

Anyways if you currently have a Facebook page now and use Messenger, you’ll want to be sure you turn on or even edit the options in the Response Assistant. It’s easy enough to get to (once you’ve found it the first time) by hitting the Settings at the top right then Messaging on the right menu

Once there scroll down until you see the Response Assistant.

Take a few minutes to fill out what you’d like your custom messages to be for each option. Be sure to save when you’re done, and you’re all set!

Ever wonder how some Facebook Pages have all kinds     of tabs that look more like a cool website than a boring FB page? Well those are Facebook Pages Apps and they don’t just look cool, they are cool.

Facebook Pages Apps help you add features to your Facebook page to eliminate extra clicks for visitors. Instead of a visitor having to go to your About Us page, to find the link to your website, to see your latest video – they can just click on your Video Tab.

 

Today we’re going to review the steps of how to install a MailChimp signup form onto your Facebook Page.

1. Login to your MailChimp account and create a new list (or use an existing list).

2. Create and format your Signup Form by clicking on Signup Forms, General Forms, and then make sure “Signup Form” is selected in the Forms and Response Emails dropdown.

3. Format your signup form using MailChimp’s intuitive options. Your Facebook Tab is going to display as the Signup Form for your list. Make sure the Signup Form is formatted in the manner you would like to see it on your Facebook Page.

6. Select the Facebook Page you want the tab to appear on and choose which MailChimp List you want to use. Click “yes” for “Use signup form tab”, choose the theme you want to use, and lastly name your tab. The “Tab Label” is the name the tab will show on your Facebook page.

Attn Orlando: Upcoming Facebook Training

This post is part of our Reluctant Social Media Manager series, support for those of us who want measurable social media results with the least amount of effort.

This year has been full of excitement for Design Theory, and this summer is no exception.  Earlier this year we launched new services including Managed Hosting, Social Media Management, and the profitable sales tool Automated Virtual Chat.

We’re pleased to announce that starting this summer we will be providing Facebook Training Classes for the Orlando area.  We’ve developed a curriculum that will take any Facebook Business Page manager from novice to expert.  Our classes cover all of the basics – setting up and managing a Facebook Page, Facebook Best Practices, and Advertising.  We’ll go into some advanced topics such as: Managing Ads, Campaign Optimization, Targeting and Insights.

In February I provided a talk on Facebook advertising at WordCamp Miami (you can watch it here) and the response was overwhelming.  I was flooded with so many questions after the session, that I realized there is a need for classroom style Facebook training.  There are tons of resources online to help you learn how to leverage Facebook for your business, but if you’re like me – there’s nothing like having someone sit with you and work on your own website.

Our classes are designed to be hands on, lab-style.  Our students will bring their own machines and log into their own Facebook Pages with me right there in the room guiding them each step of the way.  Our first classes will be held later this summer.  Click here to join our waitlist and receive a discount on your first class.
