In case you missed the announcement, Social Sharing is now available for Sage E-marketing for ACT! We talked about why you should use it yesterday and today we’ll tell you how.
Start by opening up ACT! and click on the Sage E-marketing for ACT! icon to open the e-marketing window. Click Send Now followed by Manage to open the Connection Setup page.
Now you’ll connect your Social Media Accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn). Click the “Connect” button next to the Social Media Product you want to connect. You can choose one, two, or all three. Keep in mind that you can still turn Social Sharing off on any given send if you prefer not to have it on for that blast.
Once you click on the social media product, you will be routed to a Log In and asked for permission to connect the services. Follow the log in steps and check the screen for your connection status.
Social Sharing also includes an option to include links for your recipients to share your email with their networks. If you want to have the Social Sharing icons located in your Email Footer click “Footer Sharing” at the top of the page.
When sending out the email blast, you’ll go through the normal Send Email Blast steps and see a few added questions about your Social Sharing preferences for that particular email.
