Simple Share vs. Facebook Promotions


Simple Share and Facebook Promotions are two similar, yet very different tools within Constant Contact. Here's a comparison of the two.

As you can see, both tools will increase your campaigns visibility on social media sites. This will grow both your fan and customer base.  Facebook Promotions are campaigns you actually create and post directly on Facebook.  Simple Share is an action you take on any campaigns you create, to share on either Facebook/LinkedIn/Twitter.


How to use each tool:



  1.        Click on the name of the campaign you want to share, and click on simple_share_button_3.png
  2.        When using Simple Share for the first time you will need to sign into each of your accounts.

  3.        You may be prompted to give permission for the site to access your profile. (Note: If you have more than one Facebook page, such as a personal and a business page, you will need to select which one you want to connect to.)
