Add social sharing and social links to your email campaign

Overview

Our social tools make it easy for your recipients to share your campaign, as well as allowing you to add direct links to your own social profiles.

The two social building blocks are:

Adding social sharing to your campaign

By adding social sharing links to your campaign, you'll give your contacts a choice of networks with which to easily share your campaign. Your reporting will tell you which networks your campaign was viewed via, and which contact shared them there.

To add it, drag the Sharing block in from the side panel.

Drop it into your campaign and then click on the block to choose which networks to use and how they're displayed.

The 'Sharing' window will appear, allowing you to choose which social networks to link to (we have eight preconfigured for you). Click to select the ones you want, at which point they'll become highlighted, whilst the number you have selected is also confirmed in the bottom right.

Click Apply when you're happy with your selections, and they'll be added to your campaign.

Once applied, you're able to do the following in the side panel:

  • Add further social networks, or remove them, by clicking on Add or remove social networks to open the 'Sharing' window again
  • Alter the styling of any label text that's used with the icons
  • Choose how big the icon size should be
  • Decide where the label text of the social network should be displayed in relation to the icon (if displayed at all)
  • Change whether the icons are displayed horizontally, or stacked vertically
  • Choose whether the icons should be left or right aligned, centred, or stretched to fit the width of the whole block
  • Configure the horizontal and vertical spacing of the icons

The changes you make from the side panel will be instantly applied in EasyEditor, allowing you to check your alterations as you go along.

You can also preview them properly via the Preview tool.

The social networks you choose will be saved and used as the default selection when you next use the tool.

Adding social links to your campaign

By adding links in your campaign to your own social network profiles, you can make it easy for your recipients to follow, like or connect with you.

Do this by dragging the Social links block in from the side panel.

Drop it into your campaign and then click on the block to choose which of your social profiles to use and how to display them.

The 'Social links' window will appear, allowing you to choose which of your social profiles to link to (we have nine preconfigured for you). Click the checkbox to select the ones you want, at which point they'll become highlighted, and then add the URL of your social profile for that selected network in the field provided.

Click Apply when you're happy with your selections, and they'll be added to your campaign.

Once applied, you're able to make changes in the side panel in the same way you're able to when using social sharing.

Just as with social sharing, the social links you choose will be saved and used as the default selection when you next use the tool.
