To transition from relying solely on email, it is crucial to leverage the power of social media. In today's business world, social media has become an essential tool. Prominent platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn offer great opportunities.

Social media and email marketing are highly compatible and can work together synergistically. Integrating social media with your other marketing channels, including email marketing, unlocks its true potential.

According to a Constant Contact survey, small businesses that promote their business with multiple social channels in conjunction with email reported increases in key metrics:


  • Customer engagement - 73%
  • New customers - 57%
  • Website traffic - 54%
  • Revenue - 40%
  • Referrals - 39%


If you’re ready to jump into the social media pool, start with sharing your already completed and sent email campaign on your social channels!


How to share an email campaign on social media



  • After creating and sending your email to your contacts, you can extend your reach by sharing it on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. The post will include the URL for your email by default. You can use the image that is automatically pulled into the post through the link preview, or choose a different image from your library.
  • Give your friends and followers some time to interact with the post, and then check the reporting to see how well it's performing. Don't forget to respond to comments and answer questions to engage with your audience!
