FanBridge signup forms can take on many kinds of looks, but they can also take on many kinds of functions as seen in the different embed options. Don’t know how each one works or which form is a good fit? Get to know all options available, starting with our splash page and how it can grow your mailing list quickly.

Option One: Splash Pages


A splash page is a signup form that appears as an overlay on a landing page. The splash page is triggered any time a new visitor accesses any webpage that includes this code. Splash pages are becoming more and more common as they are extremely effective in converting page visitors into mailing list subscribers. In fact, a site with a splash page can collect – on average – up to 400% more email opt-ins than an inline form.

Where should I put the code?

Paste the code for your splash page just above the closing </body > tag on your website or blog.

How is it smart?

As mentioned before, this is the most successful way to grow your mailing list. It’s also unobtrusive; once someone joins your list they won’t see the form again for a whole year. If they don’t join, a visitor won’t be prompted again until 3 days after their initial visit. If a visitor selects anywhere outside of the form, it will automatically disappear and take them to their main destination.

Why should I choose this option over others?

The great thing about these signup forms is that you don’t HAVE to choose just one signup form over the others. You can implement as many you want. However the effectiveness of the splash page growing a mailing list is what outranks the other options.

What are the best practices of using a Splash Page?

1. Keep it simple – A beautiful header and only a couple of fields will get more fans to sign up. Save the longer forms for the embeddable signup form option.

2. Customize! – Make sure to create the form so that it stands out from the rest of your site. Unlike an embedded signup form where you would want to make the form uniform with your site, your splash page should have contrasting colors in order to stick out.

3. Use enticing wording – Why should someone signup for your list? What do your fans get out of signing up? Give your new fans an immediate reason to join. This is a perfect opportunity to get creative as this form is a mailing list first impression for many of your fans.

The best way to easily to grow your mailing list is to make sure you have a signup form on all your online properties, and if you have a community of fans on your Facebook page, you’ll want to be sure there is an easy way for those fans to sign up for your list. To get a form on Facebook, follow the instructions and video tutorial shown below.


You just need two components in order to get started: an HTML iFrame tab and  the embed code for the widget that you want to add.

In order to get the form on Facebook, you need to first install a third party app to Facebook so it can host your widget’s code (we recommend the Thunderpenny Static HTML iFrame).

The second thing you need after installing the third-party app is the embed code of the signup form you’ve created on FanBridge. Once you’ve created your form, select the “Get Embed Code” button and copy the code found under the “I am embedding this form on a website or on Facebook” option.

PRO TIP: If you would like the form to take up the entire space of the tab, set your form to a custom width of 810 pixels.

After you have created your form and copied the code, you will just need to insert it into the third party static HTML app. Go the extra mile by customizing your tab title and image, and you are all set!

Check out this step-by-step video to help you get started:

PRO TIP: Placing your signup form as one of the top four tab options is the best way to achieve the highest conversion rate from Facebook page visitors to email subscribers.

We’ve always been fans of viral growth here at FanBridge, and that’s why we’re excited to announce that we’re officially bringing Tweet for a Track into our product family.

To celebrate, we’ve relaunched the site to provide fans with an even more interactive and searchable experience, while also enabling artists to benefit from increased exposure to new audiences on the platform. Tweet for a Track’s audience of millions of music super fans (notably among tech savvy millennials) will be key to informing our content & mobile strategy for this powerhouse segment of the global fan market.

Behind the scenes, the Tweet for a Track team has done an incredible job building audience amplification technology to date, already helping thousands of talented artists to get over 1,000,000 new fan emails in 2013. Though we’ve always had a relationship with Tweet for a Track since it started, we’re excited to formally bring it into the FanBridge family alongside our Audience CRM & Collaboration technology as we enter 2014.

Rock on,
Team FanBridge
