Add the Social Media Share bar to an email or survey invitation

Make your email "go social" with a Social Media Share bar. By clicking on the branded buttons, your contacts will be able to share your email with their friends on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or their choice of countless other blogs and social media sites.

This is free advertising for your organization or business and helps you grow your list through your existing contacts.

Note: The Social Media Share bar isn't available for event-related emails.

Add or Remove the Social Media Share Bar to an Email

The Social Media Share bar can be found in the header of your Email campaign:

  1. Place your cursor over the Header Options block and click Edit this block.

    Edit this Block Icon
  2. Place a check next to "Social Share Links" to add the share bar to your header or click to remove the check to remove it from your header.
  3. Click OK to continue editing your email.

Note: The Share bar isn't functional in test emails. To test it, make a copy of your campaign email and send it to yourself.

  1. Create a new Survey invitation or edit an existing invitation.
  2. From the Schedule page, scroll down to the Share this email section.
  3. Place a check mark next to the image of the Social Media Share bar.
