    Not working. When I click the FB or twitter button to share the message I get the msg saying the link is broken. Is there a set up I need to do?

    Hi,

    I have a few quick questions regarding the social feature outlined above. Can you include the ‘stats’ in the email? eg. show the like button within the email and the number of ‘likes’ it has received.

    Does Getresponse have a feature to automate sending blog posts as soon as they are posted to a WordPress blog and could these social buttons be incorporated in the template of the blog broadcast with the ‘like’ button set to the URL of the blog post rather than the email campaign?

    Ideally for me the scenario would be:
    1. Post blog on WordPress.
    2. Send out automated broadcast to email subscribers around 4 hours after blog has been published to allow some social proof to build up from other traffic.
    3. Subject of email to show title of blog post and body of email to show full blog post with social buttons showing the number of ‘likes’ the article has received so far and one-click option for subscribers to ‘like’ it themselves on Facebook etc.

    Not sure if the number of ‘likes’ can be shown in an email because an i’frame setup would not show up in most email clients.

    Look forward to hearing the response.

    Hi Leonardo, where exactly do you click the buttons? Can you describe the steps exactly? Thanks!

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Hi Carl,

    Thanks very much for the comment. You’re right – we can’t show the number of likes etc in the email directly, but it does show up in your email archive – the online version of the message, as this is the place where you actually click the buttons.

    As for the blog feature, at this point we have a very simple one that sends an announcement of a new post as soon as you publish it, but as I’m writing this, we’re working on a brand new one that will be much more flexible and customizable, so stay tuned for some good news.

    We’ll certainly discuss your suggestions as well.

    You guys keep getting better and better. Social buttons & stats – love them both. Now I only wish that my newsletters generate just as many shares as the screenshot you pictured above :-)

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Thanks John! And good luck with the sharing. :)

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Let us know what you think when you do!

  • Leonardo

    The sharing buttons on the message.

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Hi Leonardo, do you mean a message you have created in the new Email Creator and then sent? For others to share your message you don’t need to do any set up – they work automatically. What you describe is typical of a test message – where sharing doesn’t yet work. I’d appreciate some more details so we can find the reason for your problems. Thanks!

    I think being able to set the url for the buttons is important. Currently it just likes a page on getresponse.com?

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Hi, the buttons automatically link to your newsletter (and its url in your newsletter archive”, so that your subscribers can “like” your newsletters and share them with others who can then read them, too, even if they’re not on your list. That’s the whole point.

    How do I add social sharing to split test emails?

  • http://juzd.com/ Sharky the Streetwear Designer

    For each of my email I also create a blog post and ideally I would like them to like that and go there. Maybe have this option if the future if there is enough demand.
