Forward emails/share on social media buttons

(Alison McLaren) #1

We send out a weekly email update to current clients and prospects. Would like to add two features to the bottom of the email:

  1. Add a forward button so the recipient can easily forward the email to a friend.
  2. Add share buttons so the recipient can share on their social media.

Are these possible and if so, how do I do this?

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Add-on buttons to forward/share on social media?

Hi, @Alison_McLaren

  1. Do you mean replicate what the Forward button does in an email client? If so, I don’t think that is possible.
  2. I’ve never seen a share button in an email, as they usually require JavaScript. You could use this http://www.sharelinkgenerator.com/ and link to the hosted version of your email - that should work pretty well.

To get a link to the hosted version of your email, send it to yourself, view the source (easiest to do in Gmail) and grab the hosted URL.

How to share an email broadcast using a URL?

Hi Alison,

Has this been answered? Or have you figured out how to do this? We too would like to add social share buttons to our newsletter (not just links to our social accounts). The forward button would be nice too!

Hello, I am not seeing the hosted URL in the email when I send it to myself. Via GMail,
