Videos to Facebook with WordPress Plugin

In my last post we discussed how it is possible to control your Facebook tabs from within a WordPress website.  We added a coupon and "fan gate" so that you can earn more likes by providing value.

In this video you will learn how to add videos to a Facebook tab.  Think video review channel on YouTube, e.g. create a YouTube channel called Dealership Name Reviews and post 30 second to one minute video testimonials.  As soon as your video is posted (directly from your smart phone or tablet) it will show up on your WordPress site, your Facebook tab and possibly be Tweeted out (set up requirred) without touching a computer.  

Make sure that you tell your customer that they are going to be famous :) so that they can tell their friends too.

As always if you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to add them in the comments, and if you have any other ideas on how to use this please share.

Great idea Mike. This is great and keeps the content we would want everyone to see from getting "lost in the timeline.". I know I will only scroll so far.
Mike Fitzpatrick
Great point @Chris! Another thing to keep in mind with Facebook "tabs", it is possible to deep link to them. So you can link directly to them from your website(s) or micro-site(s) even if you have more than just the 4 visible "tabs".
