Social Media Icons

Please add more options for social media such as an RSS feed (blog) and Houzz (interior design specific).  In addition, please "lock in" the social media icons per email campaign.  For example, I create email campaign 1 and set up the social media icons.  Then I create email campaign 2 with the social media icons linking to different social sites.  As soon as I save the social media profile for email 2 it changes the social media links in email 1.  This is VERY frustrating as we have 6 different brands that we send emails out for and we cannot use our email templates due to this issue. 

 

We tried to create our own social media icons by using images however, we cannot place more that two images side by side like we could in the old interface.  Also, please put back the ability to add a table into the new user interface - you took away this feature!  Having the ability to add a table would allow me a workaround to my first issue.  UGH!  Very frustrating - this is making us re-consider our decision to use Constant Contact for our email campaigns.

Only Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Linked-in, Google +, and Pinterest are options to add in the social media share block. Please add other popular platforms like Instagram, Flicker, Vimeo, etc.

Can you add Vimeo as an option for the Social Share block?

Please add one to your Template, as well as Instagram

Houzz is not listed in the social share buttons!!
Occasional Participant
The social media selection when adding in the social media connections doesn't include a link to yelp and that is one of our biggest influences on clients, it would be great if they could check out our links straight from our email blast.

Thanks for posting this feedback!

Hi ! Can you include a Snapchat button on the SoMe choices ?
Participant

The social media icons are shockingly limited. You may or may not be aware, but there are more than 5 social media services out there.

Thanks for posting this feedback, what social sites would you like to see added in the future?

Hi: It would be very useful if you had also TripAdvisor and Yelp. Thank you

We are an architecture firm and need the HOUZZ logo to match the facebook and other social media icons. I hope this can happen.

HI CAN YOU ADD THE VIMEO ICON TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA ICONS THAT WE CAN ADD TO OUR CAMPAIGNS? THANKS
Occasional Participant
Hi, I really like the facebook, and other social media icons which can be added (and linked) within emails. However, it would be most helpful if you could add also a "link" icon to link to a website and an "envelope" icon to link to an email. THIS WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL! As a work-around, I uploaded my own icon for website and email, but they don't look as good as the icons you've already established for other social media. Other email marketing programs do offer this alternative -- if Constant Contact can incorporate this option too that would be terrific! THANK YOU so very much!

I agree with the original poster. Our organization has more than one Facebook page, and more than one YouTube channel. There is no way to link to more than one, and when users think they have changed the link in one email, someone changes it in another email, and it gets changed in all of them. This is awful.

YES! We are having the exact same problem. This is NOT a feature, it is a bug!!!

Occasional Participant
Yelp and Better Business Bureau should be added to Social Media for people to click on links and give us a review right there instead of going to the website and looking up our company name. When it can simply just be on Constant Contact
Participant
For the social media buttons, it would be nice if you guys could add the Yelp button as well.

New editor is extremely disappointing. Absolutely need user determined font styles available. Having to start from scratch each time is unacceptable. Also noticed that Flickr is not available in the social media bar which is not OK.
Employee

@heirloom_flowersThanks for the feedback.

 

Can you tell me a little bit more about what you mean by "user determined font styles". Would you like to see more font options than there are currently? Also, there is the ability to "Copy" a previously sent email so you don't have to start from scratch each time. You can do this by clicking the "Actions" dropdown on the campaigns page and choosing "Copy".

Regular Participant

The new editing options are so limited, including the ridiculously small selection of social media icons - please add the ones requested by other commentors as well as an email icon and a link icon. I also have tried to add additional icons via the image tool, and was also aggravated that only two side-by-side can be created.

 

The inability to add custom fonts is very frustrating. Typefaces are a large part of any organization's branding. Please bring back this function.

 

Please add the table function again! This is needed for many reasons, the icon/link issue above as well as adding a box with a border. Not being able to add a border to individual sections of an email is irritating.

 

We have recently switched to CC from another email system and we are disappointed in the changes you've made.

Looking for social buttons for tumblr and flickr to add to our emails.

Also frustrated by this change. No provision for Houzz or Yelp. I had used tables on the previous version and added them manually. Now I can only create links from the words HOUZZ and YELP which looks unprofessional.

 

There's a lot of lost user functionality in the new email tool. I am frustrated and regret the "upgrade."

Participant

At the bottom of most of the emails, Constant Contacts has the option of putting in soical media links, which is nice. Except that some social media links aren't there or built in. One in perticular that I use often in Goodreads, and it would be very helpful if I could put in a widget for the site at the bottom of my page in place of Instrgram or Pintrest, which I don't use. 

Thanks.

Our client has customized social icons that they want to use everywhere - it would be nice to be able to customize the social icons in the new email editor. In the legacy it is easy to adjust the HTML, this option no longer exists in the new wysiwyg editor.

Participant

We are  dual branded and send out messages from either or sometimes both sister companies.

 

I would love a simple way to display both sets of icons and to also toggle between one or the other.

 

Is this possible?

Occasional Participant

Although some may like to offer a link to share their newsletter with social media, we do not. We respect the privacy of our members and are not at all happy that C Contact no longer allows us this option of NOT LINKING to social media.

Not pleased!

Regular Participant
Having an ITunes social button would be nice!
Participant

So, you continue to increase the prices on us customers on a regular basis but the product remains virtually the same as it was years ago.  

 

With Twitter and Instagram all the rage nowadays, how about you build into your social share platform a way to send notices through to those platforms in addition to just Facebook.

I love the flexibility of the new email generator, however I find it difficult to include a social media button that is not already loaded as an option through the build. it would be nice to have other options for additional social media channels. When I add one as a graphic throws the mobile view way off. pleaforsocialmediaicons.jpg

Google has changed its Google+ social media to Google My Business. I submitted a request to change the Google+ icon to Google My Business icon months ago and just discovered the Google+ icon which we have been using for Google My Business was removed altogether without adding the Google My Business icon. Why would you do this as it impacts the revenue of virtually all your clients? Please add the Google My Business icon ASAP. Paul Jasmin Bark Busters 612-849-0393

Hello @LynneW7

Thanks for letting us know what social media icon you would like to see added next. Is it only the Google My Business icon you would also like to see in the future?
