How I Virally Increase My Subscribers List With Facebook

by Sushant Risodkar · 36 comments

As you know, Facebook is one of the biggest sources of traffic for bloggers and internet marketers these days, of course not forgetting the Giant Google…

One of the blog which I manage right now receives 100000+ (1,2,3,4,5 – count the zeros!) impressions every single month. And guess what? Of all this traffic, 55% traffic comes from Facebook and some 20-30% comes from other social networking sites.

We are able to bring such HUGE amount of traffic to that blog simply because of the VIRAL nature of Facebook (and a little bit of other social sites). We haven’t done anything extraordinary. All we have done is, added a ‘viral solution’ on the blog.

And it’s nothing but Facebook’s very own “LIKE button”. Yes, it’s that simple for us to increase the traffic on one of our blog. Our fans around the globe spread the blog content by LIKING it and you can easily imagine how it can help YOU too if you are able to do something like this with your squeeze pages without giving any trouble to the ‘possible’ subscriber.

I am a huge fan of viral solutions that helps me as a blogger and internet marketer. Almost a month ago, I stumbled upon a great viral Facebook application at warrior forum created by derrick vandyke that helped me to add viral element to my squeeze pages which generates more traffic coming towards my squeeze page (keep multiplying this) that ultimately increases my email subscribers list at a faster rate…WITHOUT annoying or taking any extra time of the visitor.

The Facebook application I am talking about is – OptinApp.

OptinApp is one of the most popular Facebook applications right now amongst internet marketers and blog owners. What this does that it lets visitor subscribe to your list/newsletter just by connecting their Facebook account to your customized Facebook application. The visitor no longer has to enter their name and email address like they have done always from ages. The application is connected to your autoresponder and submits the required information back to make that visitor properly subscribe to your list.

PLUS, it also adds a viral element during this process. This application posts a custom message created by you on the user’s wall as a status update. IMAGINE how viral it could prove when more and more people go through this…All this is done only after taking permission from the user so you are not risking anything here.

And don’t forget that the visitor here subscribes with their BEST email ID which they used for Facebook. And I think 99% of the people check that email account regularly. Don’t you? It’s a fact that people these days have more than one email account and most of them don’t give their best email ID which they check regularly. Well most of them…I personally have 5-6 email accounts which I use for various business purposes. With OptinApp collecting the subscriber’s email ID with which they registered on Facebook means you are going to get better open rates for your email campaigns with their best email ID in the hand.

OptinApp now supports 24 autoresponders and which covers almost all the major one’s out there. You can easily personalize the text that you want to be posted as a status update on the user’s wall after getting the permission. You can even select your own thumbnail image, the link you want to add to that status update and the description for that link like shown in the image above. The more personalized and realistic it seems the better…

The great thing is that you can promote your OptinApp generated link anywhere since it’s just a plain url directing the visitor towards your Facebook application; like you can promote it on YouTube videos (Can you put a subscription form on YouTube?), through blog comments (can you add your subscription form in blog comments?), through guest blogging (can you put your subscription form while guest blogging?), directly in solo ads/ad swaps, in your forum posts (can you put a subscription box on any forum? you will get banned!) etc.

Just IMAGINE how helpful and time-saving this Facebook app is for every list builder. You can even embed it on your fan pages like I have done or anywhere else where it is possible and allowed.

Overall, I am loving OptinApp after making use of it from past one month and would recommend you to have its license (for just $37) if you want to increase your list size virally and want to get better open rates/outcome with your email campaigns.

That seems to be a great tool, increasing my subscribers and get social media exposure at the same time is an unbeatable combination (and you get as you said 50% of 100000 visits from Facebook, that’s amazing!) I will certainly give it a try, thanks for sharing…

Interesting application! It will certainly help to save much time. And it’s not a secret for anyone that it’s very important in today’s busy life)

Hi Sushant,

I was wondering why you aren’t using this plugin on your blog anymore?

Just curious of your experience.


Sushant Risodkar November 13, 2011 at 11:37 pm

I DO use it but not on this blog. I use it on my facebook fan page and on some other places.

Hi Sushant,

I finally got this plugin and installed it and got it working. However, is there a secret to getting it to show the request permissions box as you have shown above? Mine forces you to log into facebook even if you are already logged in. And then the request permission box looks quite a bit different then you showed above. Yours looks much better.

Lastly I am also curious how you got the plug-in to post an image on the wall of the subscriber. Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

Using this as a Facebook app makes so much more sense then having a WordPress plugin with a Pop-up. Though, it could be productive even too, if one pay a bit of attention to it. Not sure now, but I think I read somewhere it doesn’t comply with one of Aweber’s terms or something.

The app is banned or what the URL isn’t opening now :S
