I created an email using card/announcement and when I tried to add "forward to a friend", "join my mailing list" and permission reminder" I was not able. I would like to have the ability to use these functions in future emails that I create.
The updated Constant Contact templates eliminates the ability to include "Forward to a Friend." I recently paid for a Premium Template, and with that we still can't include "Forward to a Friend" with our emails. That was a helpful tool for us, and we'd like to see it added by in your system asap. That is lost opportunity for brands to be able to grow their audience via their current audience. I can only say that MailChimp offers this capability, and if we can't get it back, it's possible over the next year we will consider moving our account to MailChimp.
Add the forward button please.
I need for you to restore, or create from scratch, the capacity for me to forward an email from an already sent campaign to an individual, or individuals. You used to include a "Forward" link in every email template--now that's gone. And when I try to forward the copy of each email campaign that I sent to myself, the formatting goes wonkey (e.g. the background behind all the text goes "black"). MY SUGGESTION: I should be able to log in, go visit my "Campaigns" page, click on ANY sent campaign, and have an option to "Forward" a copy of that email to one or more individuals whose email addresses I enter. ALSO...in the past, people to whom I forwarded an email clicked on "Unsubscribe"...and it unsubscribed ME from my own mailing list. Fix that! THESE things need to be done "Yesterday," i.e. urgently--since my last campaign (10/8/17), I've had more than a dozen requests and/or opportunities for forward a copy to NEW, interested people...and I can't. YOU'RE KILLING MY MARKETING EFFORTS! Get on it! Thanks--Dan Keusal...
When we forward our email, the formatting completely changes and makes our newsletter unreadable. There should be a forward option within the service that allows for someone to forward the email to a friend without losing the formatting.
We gave the 3ed Gen editor a shot from it's launch, but found that since it didn't have a "forward" feature, it was worth sticking with the tried and true template we originally created. I'm often tempted to change our template or use once of yours for a special campaign, but without the forward feature, I think it would be losing it's punch. Also, in the "Forward" landing page, perhaps it could let us choose which kind of person to send to....mostly I forward to collegues or associates, rarely a "friend"....
This feature is one significant one that has kept me using Constant Contact, since at least Mailchimp (I haven't checked how many others) only send a link to the web version when you forward the email. Constant Contact's big advantage, from my perspective, with regard to this, was that it actually forwarded the email itself, not forcing the receiver to click a link to even see what is being sent to them. Also, I suspect that just sending the link would cause many forwards to be filtered as possible spam.
I need to use this function to create sharable campaigns that my business partners can use to send to their own contacts. A more obvious button would be appreciated as well. I need to be able to explain to them that they have to use that button, not the forward in their email client. Maybe it could be an editing element that we could slide anywhere in the email, and have the ability to change the text on the button.
@ChristaH117 Thank you for the feedback. We know this is a important feature for some users. The product team is looking at the best way to implement this into the current editor.
