Social Share Buttons

I created the email on this initially, but I had to go back to the original formatting because I did not have the option to add the Social Share buttons at the top of the email.

  2. In the Header Options overlay, check the "Social Sharing Links" checkbox at the bottom.
  3. Click OK.

Re: Social Share Buttons

Juan I am familiar with that. My problem is that it is NOT an available option if I am sending an email to promote an EventSpot event.

 

If the email is generated from EventSpot, I have NO way to add the Social Share Buttons to encourage the email recipient to share the upcoming event.

Re: Social Share Buttons

Hi Tom,

 

Thank you for your feedback. That is correct -- the social share bar is not an option to be added to the Event Email Invitation at this time. I have submitted your request for this and our developers will be looking into it. Please continue voting for this and any other feature you want us to add. We appreciate your product feedback and suggestions!

 

Have a great day!

How to move social share buttons to body of text or create share buttons in the body of the text?

I want to allow readers to share my emails on facebook, twitter, or forward to a friend. However, the social share button in the header is easily overlooked. Can I move the social share buttons down to the body of my text? OR can I insert share buttons for facebook and twitter, and forward email link to the body of the text? I know I can insert facebook and twitter buttons that will link to my facebook page/twitter feed. However, I want them to share it, not just go to our page. 

 

If I can't move social share buttons, I am looking for something like this:

Re: How to move social share buttons to body of text or create share buttons in the body of the text

Hello, 

 

If you are using a custom coded email we have this FAQ that goes over how to add the Social Share bar into the email.  With adding that code you can place it anywhere in the email that you wish.  We do not have a way to move the share bar around or manually create a share bar in an email with the image you provided. This sounds like it would be a great suggestion to pass along though, you can post this as a new idea in our feedback area.

What is the Social Share Bar?

Did you know that your contacts can share your email on their social networks? We make it super easy for them to do so by adding what is called the Social Share bar to the top of your email. There is no cost for this, we track the shares, and it’s easy to turn on/off within each email.  Let’s go over some information and I’ll show you how you can easily add this to extend your reach on social media!

 

You can add it to any of our Email Marketing emails (Event invite, Emails, Deals, Online Survey invites, Social Campaign invites).

 

It looks like this:

Your contacts can share on their Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or if they click the + sign, they can share on any of these sites:

And if they click the Facebook Like button, that puts up a status in their Facebook NewsFeed that they liked your email and allows others to check it out!

 

Now that you know what the button allows, how do you add it? This is in the Headers Option block in your emails.

 

When editing your email, look for where your From Name, Subject Line, and Reply Email are.  You will see Header Options, click anywhere in the block to edit.  You will then see the following window. The last option is Social Share Links. Just check that box and hit OK.  Make sure to click Save when editing the email again to save this change.

And that’s it! The Social Share Bar will now appear at the top of your sent emails.

 

Any questions let us know!
