Re: Social Buttons at top of Email - Add This vs. Constant Contacts - Advantage & Disadvantages

Hi Mitsuo,

 

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,

Jarrad

Re: Social Buttons at top of Email - Add This vs. Constant Contacts - Advantage & Disadvantages

Hi,

 

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.

 

Thanks!

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?

Hi Mitsuo,

 

I apologize for the confusion.  You are using your own Custom HTML code for your email and therefore you do not have the same easy button to select when scheduling your email.  Instead, you'll want to follow the instructions in the following FAQ to add the Social Share coding to your email.

 

FAQ 5064:  How do I insert a Social Share bar bar into an HTML or XHTML email?

 

I hope that helps!

Creating a "Share" button w/Facebook & Twitter Clickable Buttons on top

Hi,

 

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!
