In certain templates, there is a social share button and it doesnt include the ability to add Instagram - why not?
This is something we're aware of and working to get resolved! For now you would need to add the icon manually.
would like to be able to tie my campaigns to Instagram
Thanks for posting this feedback! Do you imagine your email would post to Instagram as a photo with a short caption of content from the email?
Instagram should definitely be a sharing option! Facebook and Instragram go hand in hand so when can we be expecting this option?
hi there, will you be adding instagram to this feature? I would like to schedule instagram posts and you can't do that in instagram so if you added it here that would be a big help
Thanks for the feeback! Social Posts is our newest social offering, and we are just beginning to collect information on what our customes are looking for within this product.
We've opened this feature up for voting while we collect more information and will be sure to post any updates here as they become available to us.
i want to share on instagram too...pls make it happen
Our content is primarily videos and images. This is a must feature!!
Rather than an image of the whole email, it would be better if it pulled the "primary" image or video (prioritizing videos) from the email and include comments from the email copy. If you don't want to "figure out" what is the primary content, allow us to flag it in the email template!
I cannot find any current info on whether or not I can share campaigns to Instagram. There is no icon to share other than facebook, twitter and linked in. I read from a 2017 post that you were going to be adding the option. Any way to do this yet? Thanks.
Yes I would like Instagram added too:)
Hello @TimL846 and @GeoCatch,
At this time there is still no Instagram option for Social Share and I do not have a solid time frame on if that will be implemented. I've gone ahead and passed along your feedback for voting, however.
Instagram is tremendously important and growing fast. To have not added it to Social Share yet is a major inconvenience and requires us to post via multiple channels. Please add Instagram to Social Share.
Two years (+), and still waiting for an Instagram Social Share feature. Perhaps someone at CC would be courteous enough to explain why this is not yet an option rather than continuing to say that it's something that is being worked on/reviewed. I'm thinking there's a reason we users haven't considered that's making it challenging at your end.
A Constant Contact Rep showed me where to find, in 3GE, the social share buttons that I could build into a template, adding icons to enable readers to share the email with friends. I was adding those--but today I can only find the icons to share to our own social media. Am I missing something?
Please add Instagram to the Social Share! How hard can this be?? We pay good money to use this service.... maybe we should look elsewhere for more innovative people.
Agree with all comments posted above. It would be convenient to post to IG from my Constant Contact account.
I would like instagram capability, too
Any word on adding instagram? Ive been reading the comments, looks like this is in high demand, and no one is even working on it. ETA?
Hi everyone. Thank you so much for the feedback about the request to share your campaigns on Instagram. We recently released our Social Posts tool which includes the ability to post on Instagram from your Constant Contact account. However, it isn't designed to share your emails on Instagram as Instagram is an image-heavy platform and doesn't allow the addition of direct links into posts. As a workaround, you can include the link as text in the post but your followers would need to copy and paste the text into a browser in order to view your campaign. I've also seen some customers include the link to their campaigns in their bio and then create a post highlighting the campaign and pointing their followers to access the link to it through their bio.
We're always open to improving your experience and if there is an opportunity for us to make this change, we will be sure to update you.
Emails can now be shared to Instagram via our new social share. As Caitlin_M previously mentioned, you can also create and schedule Instagram posts independently as well. Thanks for all the feedback!
