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.

Customize Social Share Bar

under "Having trouble viewing..." are the social link buttons. I didn't realize that if clicked on you can share. A great enhancement would be to make the button say share. Example: "F share" so the Facebook button would actually have the word share in it.

Greetings, First off, I'd like to compliment Dimas Ramirez for his professionalism and hard work in trying to resolve this matter. He even put me on a brief hold, did some research on his own, then came back to the phone and apologized for having to step away. Smiley Happy He was very calm and very knowledgeable, even apologetic because my boss had called just last week and spoke to someone about the same issue, but he apparently was not aware that you currently don't support accessing company Linkedin pages for social sharing. ... which brings me to why I'm writing... I'd like to find out when this will be something you support. We want to post our email campaigns on our company Linkedin page. I look forward to hearing back from you, to learn more about when I can expect this feature will be active. Warmest regards, Kathy G.

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

I would LOVE the ability to have a button on each newsletter story allowing our readers to share individual stories to their own social networks -- Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. Possible?

As a customer who was using your social media area within our campaigns your recent update makes my life 5 times harder. Before it was a simple one push for all accounts now I have to go in and manually update each of our social media areas. This is a total pain as a customer who pays monthly 400 I will look at alternative solutions to do what I am looking for within our website.
Pinterest is a growing part of my business. I'd like to be able to use it as part of the Social Share process.

when it comes to social share you only allow links back to the email it is related too, however it would be very useful to be able to schedule posts not all related to the emails you are sending (because you are going to be posting more often than you are sending emails - obviously).

Hi, For emails we copy from previous campaigns, it would be extremely helpful if the social sharing preferences were inherited in the copied campaign. We are finding we have to untick the number of times a campaign shares (changing option to 1 time doesn't stick across campaigns) and the channels it shares to. This takes a few extra minutes and, more importantly, leaves lots of room for error! Thanks for your consideration!

I do not like the way you post the campaigns that are created...when I see that same old same old on FB, I am not interested...it was much better when at least one of our own special photos was selected and posted. Your two or three repeat and do NOT attract attention.

1. Would love to see the option of filing and archiving sent emails. This is so helpful when planning out future programs and is sorely lacking with the newer Constant Contact formatting. 2. I love the option of Social Sharing - HOWEVER - if there was a calendar to see ALL social sharing posts for ALL campaigns, that would be extraordinarily helpful. Right now, I can only see the posts per campaign so I have to be extra careful not to put a new social post next to or on top of a previous post scheduled from a week ago.

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.

Hi, Is there way to Social Share an email with a custom greeting without it saying "Dear Rebecca" in the email? It should revert to the secondary greeting option so it's not personalized for the mass audience. Thanks, Rebecca

This update sucks. Before once an email was sent I could post it to facebook in about 30 seconds. Now I have to dig through all the crap you guys think is "best practices".

Hello. Our organization has over 20 social media accounts (and growing) associated to Constant Contact. When I create an email blast and want it to autopost on our social media, all of our accounts are already checked on that post. I have to go in and uncheck all of the accounts I do not want that message to post on (example, an email blast specific to our popcorn fundraising does not need to post on our Facebook page about Pinewood Derby). To make it even more time consuming, once I've unchecked the first visible 5 checkboxes, I scroll down to numbers 6-10, uncheck #6 and it bumps me back to the top. So I can only uncheck the top 5 at one time, then the remaining ones have to be unchecked one at a time. Overall, it takes me 5-8 minutes, PER EMAIL BLAST to schedule social media posts. All I want is to have the list be UNCHECKED to begin with so I can select which social media accounts I want each email to post on. This won't affect people that only have 1-2 accounts. But, we have a newsletter that goes out monthly to 12 different districts. That's 12 different newsletters every month. That newsletter only gets posted on ONE social media account. It doesn't go out to all 12 districts, just to the district it pertains to. So when I'm scheduling 12 newsletters, with 12 different social media accounts, I've lost 60-90 minutes of work time to just schedule the post on social media. PLEASE PLEASE fix this!!!

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.

Your new Simple Share program and changing our photos without our consent is bad. Change back to old system. I like change but not change that is a bad change. Dale
