The Facebook widget allows you to add a Like button to your campaign – but you already knew that! Let’s talk about why you’d be crazy not to add it.
The Like Button is the cornerstone of Facebook; it engages the user, allows them to express affinity, and most importantly, adds them to your fan base. Without the Like Button, you’d be missing out on all sorts of vital demographic information, marketing possibilities, and the chance to go viral.
If you’re here, it means you’re serious about getting Likes so you should definitely check out our video-tutorial on Like Gates if you haven’t already. So what’s left to consider? Adding a Like Button is a must! Just follow the simple steps below to add one to your campaign.
First, let’s make sure we’re on the same page…
Make sure that you:
- are logged into your Heyo account
- have the campaign you’d like to edit opened
- have the “Add Widgets” tab selected at the top of the right-hand toolbar
Step 1: Drag and drop the Facebook widget anywhere in your campaign canvas. This will create a Like button on your campaign canvas. You can move it anytime simply by clicking and dragging it.
Note: After placing your widget, a URL field will appear in the toolbar on the right. If you don’t see it just click on your Like Button to bring it up. You cannot size your button but you can delete it with the ‘X’ button.
Pro Tip: Add a background to your Like Button to help draw attention to it. As an example, I’ve added an teal background behind the like button using the Images widget – they can’t miss it!
Step 2: All you have to do is enter the URL of the page you want to be liked in the field provided. You can also choose to show the like count by clicking the check box, also in the widget options. Yes, it’s that easy!
Step 3: Now just hit the “Save” button at the bottom of the toolbar.
That’s it! Your future fans are one click away!
One last note: If you ever need to make changes to your Like Button, don’t worry! You can always come back to manage your widget simply by clicking on it!
