Adding a Facebook button to your email is a great way to drive social media traffic. The process is a little different depending on the editor so I will include both instructions below.
2GE : The first step will be copying the URL for your social media profile that you want to use, Facebook in this case.
Place your cursor where you want the social media icon to appear and click Social.
Place your cursor over your social media platform and click the plus button.
Note: If your social media platform isn't listed, you can manually add an image of the logo as a clickable link. Select your image. Follow the instructions under the Link field to copy and paste the link for your unique social media page. Click Insert.Click Save to continue editing your campaign email.
3GE: The first step will be copying the URL for your social media profile that you want to use, Facebook in this case.
Go to the left side of the screen under the “Build” tab and you will see “Social”.
Once the icons are added, click any of the icons to open the editor and click “Edit”.
Paste the URL into the field next to the Facebook social media icon and click the chain icon to test the link.
Click Insert to continue editing your template. See this article for more information:
I attempted to attach my clients newsletter to show you how I insert the social media banner but it seems as though your HTML parsar doesn't like the code.
Sorry. Feel free to delete it if you have to .
Do you happen to have the archive link or the link used when sharing on Social Media? If you do, you can post that in here and then the users can click on it to view the email.
I would like to add Like Facebook button for our page in the email. The Facebook buttons allow only to put url not like.
Like is actually <iframe> which can be generated on facebook. But if I put it anywhere in template its not being saved.
I can only do it in custom email. Do you know the way to keep <iframe> within template or download whole template and upload it later as custom email?
It sounds like the code is being rejected. We have a feature which will allow you to add a Like button to the top of your email. To add it, follow these steps:
I hope this helps,
I just want to add the following to the top of my email, buttons that make it easy for people to click on social media links:
[Facebook Like button] [Twitter] [Google Plus]
I have an account to AddThis, but can I just use their code add paste it to the top of my email? Does that work? Or do I need to use Constant Contacts buttons. Also when people click are they liking my site or constant contacts?
So my question, can I use AddThis buttons or do I use Constant Contact .. ??
Welcome to the Community!
You would not be able to add that code to the header of the email, but it may be possible to add it into a block. To do so, click the HTML button on the top right while editing your block. Delete the block's code and paste in the code for the social media sites. Click Update and try to save the block.
When a contact clicks your Like button, that adds a link to your email onto that contact's profile. It does not like your page. You could add a link to your Facebook page in your email which would allow your contacts to Like your page.
I hope this helps,
I tried to add the Addthis code to my HTML block and it shows a blank.. or doesn't display.
I noticed on other constant contact emails there are social media buttons, how do they do it?? Are they using constant contacts ???
Is there an easy step by step guide to this.. I just can't figure it out.
I just want "FACEBOOK LIKE BUTTON" & "TWITTER BUTTON" ... if we can get other options that would be nice but not necessary.
We do have a built in Social Share bar you can add to your email by following these steps:
You can also Social Media links to the body of your email by following these steps:
I hope this helps,
When I look under TWEET and SHARE,
It only shows Twitter icon, no Facebook, Share, etc..
When I click to ADD, it launches a window for Twitter...
Is there an area where I can define this Social Media Bar?
You can include Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Like buttons to the top of your email when you schedule the email. To do so, check mark this box when selecting a date and time to send your email:
This is what my area looks like. I have no social media bar of buttons.... just twitter. Is there another area I define my social medial urls.. etc..
I don't have facebook, ...
I am looking to create a "Share" button that has our Facebook and Twitter accounts on top of it, but where both of them are clickable to our pages.
I'd also like for when a user clicks our Facebook button on our email, it will give them an option to auto-post to Facebook. Is this an option?
Thanks in advance for the help!
When you are creating your email, we have on the left Social Media Links that you can insert into your email that will take your contacts to your Facebook and Twitter pages. It is on the left when you are editing a block and looks like the following image:
You can also choose to include our Social Share bar in your email. This will appear at the top of your sent email and will give your contacts the ability to share your email on their Social Networks, including Facebook.
When you are scheduling your email, you want to choose under Tweet and Share the option that says "Make it social! Add share links to the top of your email."
Then they can choose what text they want to post to their Facebook.
I hope that helps!
Yes, that does help, but we were hoption to include this button:
And would like the Facebook and Twitter icons to be clickable. I tried to spit the image so that I could like each to a different site, but Constant Contact leaves a huge space between each. Is there any other way I can do this?
Thanks so much,
You could use what are called image maps to make the two sections of the image clickable. This requires some knowledge of HTML coding. For assistance with this, check out www.w3schools.com.
I hope this helps,
