OptimizePress is the best WordPress theme for managing product launches and internet marketing. We can create squeeze, sales letters, launch and pre-launch pages with advanced integration features like Twitter sharing and Facebook commenting and liking etc.

The gateway launch system remembers if previous visitors have landed in to our launch funnel, OptimizePress will show those visitors the pre-launch content instead of the initial squeeze page. Because OptimizePress have known that they have already seen the content squeeze page. It is a special feature of OptimizePress landing page theme.

1.  Once we have installed the latest version of OptimizePress WordPress theme in our WordPress site. The procedure mentioned below has suitable for versions above 1.3, so make sure you are using the latest version of OptimizePress. Download latest version here.

2.  Now we need to go to the Facebook Developer page to setup our new APPS which will be linked to our Facebook Comments system.  For this we should follow the below steps

To create Facebook APPS

That’s all we have done – that is our Facebook comments setup in OptimizePress WordPress theme.

Link Facebook Likes button to Fan Page

When we add our comments system in OptimizePress we will note that a like button is also added above our comments. If someone makes like here it will be automatically shown to their Facebook Page. So the launch page will be shared to many people using like button.

This is possible by changing the custom field we have in the overall page settings – called ‘custom page share URL’.  For this,

  • Go to WordPress admin and edit the particular page we need to add ‘custom share URL’.
  •  Below the page content editor we have overall page settings for squeeze page, sales page and launch page etc.
  • If we are add custom share URL to the launch page then expand the overall page settings using the + symbol near by the tab.
  • Here we have the field named as ‘custom page share URL’ we should enter the URL of your Facebook page, for example http://www.Facebook.com/WPcells  and this should add the likes to our Facebook page rather than our launch page.

If we set the likes to ‘like’ our Facebook page, then that is also the URL that will be shared – so if other people see the ‘like’ on their friends Facebook feed, it will like them to your Facebook page, and not to the launch site. So we may lose some of the viral aspect of the like feature here.

 Conclusions

OptimizePress provides options share to sales funnel in the social sharing sites. We can create squeeze, sales letters, launch and pre-launch pages with advanced integration features like Twitter sharing and Facebook commenting and liking etc.

This articles shows how the squeeze, sales pages can be integrated with Facebook comments system. Wish help of this feature if someone wants to make comments in our page or post they don’t want to enter the name and email details in the comment box they can directly add comments if they have logged in with their Facebook login.

This feature can allow people to share the post on their Facebook page. We can also add Facebook like button in the launch page using OptimizePress. This will allow reader to share the launch page by making ‘like’ on the page. Share your thoughts on comments section.
