Social Media Icons

Status: Voting Open
by MedallionCabinetry on ‎06-23-2016 03:46 PM

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.

Hi Constant Contact, the new system now includes social share links mandatory at the top of individual email archive linked copy, unlike the previous system which did not. For our use, we need to NOT have social links on selected archived emails, so please remove these OR add option to remove them. Otherwise we cannot continue to use CC after several years & need to move to a different email marketing service ASAP. Thanks, Matt

Not a fan of the social sharing Newsletter block. I prefer when my patients see a piece of the newsletter and have the option to click on more. However, I do love the new look of the site.

We cancelled 2 events and I can't delete the schedule posts that are going out. The "Manage Posts" link is greyed out under Social Promotions. One posted this morning and I had to delete it.

Can you create a link for instagram? It's one of our primary social accounts and would love for people to be able to connect more easily to our instagram page!
Status: Closed - Implemented

Hey @HannahB329,

 

Yes you are currently able to add an Instagram button to your email. If you create a new email in your account, there is a block option called "Social". If you choose to edit the "Social" block you will see the option to link your Instagram account.

After 10 years of being a business client, I am leaving constant contact and heading toward less complicated social sharing. The initial free Facebook postings of my Enews went away. The ability to clear all contacts that have never read my Enews....complicated. The ability to to lessen my 650 email list to only those that open my Enews the last three months.....complicated or impossible to do. Algorithm for that, probably, just not sharing it with us the client to make our business contacts easier to manage. So long Constant Contact.

@JoanB29 Sorry to hear this. So that I can best understand your feedback, was it your e-mail campaign you were attempting to share on social media? The current social share option is a free tool that is available for all customers.

Social Share is great, but we have lots of different campaigns with different social shares involved. It would be good to have a single place to see all the social share posts, just like the campaigns. Thanks.

sometimes we send emails to a specific list of preferred customers or others and we do not want to post the email on social share for the public to see. Your page makes it very difficult to send an email without social sharing. It is not user friendly.

Ugh, this new social sharing has multiple flaws, but this might be the worst one. The default should NOT make posts unwritten by account holders happen automatically just because one post was set up.

 

Unless the user selects and writes a schedule, automatic posting from the CC accounts should NEVER happen.

 

Default should be one post, and subsequent posts must be selected - and saved - in order to be enabled.

 

I had to delete two cheesy posts I didn't write (with 1990's clip art included, no less) that posted to our feed unwanted. Please, CC -- disable this immediately. We all are working so hard to carefully manage our brands and this kind of unwanted, automatically-posted content just isn't welcome.
