How do I use Social Networks in Email Campaigns?

Social networks, like Facebook® or Twitter®, are important channels of communication with your contacts. You can easily tie them into your email campaigns with PrimeSender, which supports email integration with these social networks.

Sharing your Newsletter on your Facebook®/Twitter® Profile

To get started, you have to set up your Twitter® or Facebook® account.

Once you have your assigned social network accounts, you can then create an email that will post on one or both of these social networking sites. Just mark the checkbox to indicate which networks you want to carry your message and type it in the available text box.

PrimeSender also allows you to define when you want this message to be sent. You can set it up for immediate distribution or schedule it to be released sometime in the future.

After you confirm your campaign message, PrimeSender will add the new post to the assigned accounts at the specified time.

Post Sample:

Facebook® and Twitter® for Simple Campaign Sharing

Each email contains links to popular social networking sites so your contacts can simply click on them and share your campaigns with their friends and contacts. This feature can widen your audience and the impact of your campaign.

Currently, PrimeSender supports Facebook®, Twitter® and Google+℠ networks. Your contacts can click on the symbol of their preferred network and share a link to your campaign.

Sample on Facebook®:

Insert Links to Your Company Facebook® or Twitter® Page

If you want to generate more fans and followers on your Facebook® page or Twitter® profile, you can place a link in your newsletter just like you would for any other link. Detailed information can be found here.
