Woobox – a Facebook App for Newbies

Woobox – a Facebook App for Newbies

Screen shot 2013-07-04 at 12.32.37 AMOne of the most frustrating but increasingly useful tools on Facebook Author Pages is applications.  They are a must-have for any author worth his marketing salt.  Some are super easy to upload and use.  Others, not so much.  Particularly if you want to customize them or if you don’t want to pay for them.

So here’s what I learned recently about the Woobox Apps.


1- Woobox is a great for all things writer.  It includes apps for the most important ones: Twitter, Goodreads, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram.  Screen shot 2013-07-04 at 12.33.56 AM


2- Woobox also offers giveaways, deals, coupons, polls and contests which help make the page more fun.


3- Woobox again offers a “blank” app if you will.  One you can customize to showcase your website or where to buy your book.  The biggest thing you have to remember is to check the redirect button.  It’s imperative.  Must. Hit. Redirect.  Otherwise you’ll sit for two hours agonizing over why the heck the stupid thing won’t work.

I like Grisham’s page … he uses it to encourage reading.  His three apps are Grisham Library, What I’m Reading and Goodreads.  Can’t get more literary than that.  And all three of those boxes can be customized using Woobox.
