How can people share my newsletters across social media sites? Watch video

If you’d like to increase the visibility of your messages, you can add social sharing icons to your newsletters. If you’d like to learn about the benefits of using the buttons, please go to How can I use social media to increase the visibility of my marketing messages.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. In the newsletter creator, expand the Social sharing tab and select the icon combination you’d like to add to your message template.
  2. Drag and drop any combination of icons for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, and LinkedIn, as well as an email-forwarding icon. When you’re done editing the newsletter, proceed to the next step in the creator.

That’s it. You’ve added the buttons. When people click on the icon in your newsletter or on your landing page, they can share it with their social media community.

These icons also track and report social media sharing and re-sharing via the Email Intelligence analytics interface. Note: The buttons don’t work in the test messages or when you preview them in the account.
