How to Create a Google Form and Add it to your Facebook Page
Jul 7, 2016
I’ve seen some posts in Facebook Groups about collecting responses from people lately, so I’ve created some videos on how to create a Google Form, and how to set it up as an app on your Facebook page.
I’ve split it up into two videos to keep it simple. The first focuses on setting up a form. There are other online forms that are now becoming the norm, instead of PDF’s, which aren’t as flexible, and can be completed quickly and easily. I like Typeform, and use that one a lot for my business surveys, client questionnaires, and feedback forms, but I’ve set up a Facebook App form linked to a Discovery Call questionnaire in Google Forms. It took me around 10 minutes – so quick and easy.
How to Create A Google Form
This is a short video that goes step by step through how to create a google form.
The google forms are located in Google Drive, and are online questions that you can share or embed.
The results are then sent to a spreadsheet automatically, and you can collate all of the answers in one place.
How to Add a Google Form to your Facebook Page
Apps on your Facebook page are buttons you can add that can add to your engagement. They can also link to your other social media sites, other Facebook Groups, like I have for the #Nomoreburnout Female Entrepreneurs on Fire, and now to book a chat with me.
Another use for them is if you are receiving orders on your Facebook page, and many of the conversations are contained there. This can be risky if you are getting busier – and you are having many conversations in different places ie. Facebook, Email, Instagram. You can have one link sending all enquiries to a Google Form, and then contact them via your email from there – much more streamlined.
I used Woobox for this process. There is a free and a paid version, but I’ve just used the free version. You can use Woobox for other Facebook competitions, deals, etc, but they also do the html app – where you can embed any iframe code.
So, have a go at doing it yourself. I have every trust in you that you’ll be able to create your own Google form, and embed it in your Facebook page as an app!
You can do it to collect feedback, host a survey, link to a questionnaire…the possibilities are endless!
Bonus Tech tip: The form also includes a link to my Calendly appointment schedule, so they can make the appointment straight away, and I’ve also set this up as a Zap to add a task to Asana into my Nurturing Leads project so that I can include them in my follow up system. (If I’m talking gobbledygook and you’re eyes have glazed over – don’t worry. However, if you want to know more about how to streamline this system too, we can talk 😉 )
So, as you can see – they are actually quite different, and this is where if comes down to what your priorities are.
