Facebook Contact Importer Tool - Easy Way to Use Email Lists to Increase Your Fan Base

Update: Those who can't find Facebook Contact Importer Tool in new design, scroll down the post to find out.
Facebook recently added a new feature to its fan pages. A Facebook Contact Importer Tool which will help you send invites to your Selected Email List. Lot of fan page admins must have already seen this notification on top of the page.

The feature works just like the how we find our friends through importing contacts from our address books as a person on facebook or other sites. After importing the list all the non fans of your page will be shown and you can select who all the invitation to join needs to be sent. Quite simple.

You can either upload a .CSV file (mostly) or Import directly through your web email address book like that of Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail. For desktop clients like Outlook, outlook express you will need to first export your address books and save them as csv files and then upload to this contact uploader. A detailed step by step guide for all is given like Mozilla Thunderbird, Mac, Palm etc during the process itself.

Its a very convenient tool to use and makes your contact management really easy. Imagine wanting all your previous clients know about your facebook page? No need to use the Email blasters or anything! 3-4 clicks and all your clients would know about your facebook page. A must use tool for people with New Facebook fan pages to get the initial number of Fans.

If you don't see the notification on top of your page, just go to Edit page and find Contact Importer.

  1. Where the heck is the Contact Importer tool now? I cannot find it in any of the areas available when clicking Edit Page on the pages I admin.

    I see it on newer pages on the Get Started tab, but not for established pages that don't have the Get Started tab anymore.
