Social share: Integrate your social and email marketing

I’m sure you’re up to speed on the dramatic way in which our online communications and marketing are evolving, it should be pretty clear that as online “word of mouth” social media is a must-have marketing, branding and networking tool. 

Being an email marketer, you’re probably aware that email has long been the top performing direct and online marketing channel – now I don’t know about you, but something tells me that combining these two channels (email and social media) should have quite a powerful effect…

Which is why, as promised, we’ve release a brand new way of complementing your email campaigns with your social media presence:

Social share

 This tool enables you to publish your email newsletter straight to your Twitter account (Please note that this tool was disabled, but it is available in your Emailbrain Account again).  The newsletter title with a link to your full newsletter will then automatically appear as a tweet – without you having to log into your account to manually tweet about your newsletter.  Our developers have even adding an additional gadget: GMtiny, our very own URL abbreviator.  As Twitter limits you to 140 characters per tweet, GMtiny will automatically shorten the link to your newsletter, cutting down that lengthy, unsightly URL to only a few characters.  Handy, isn’t it?

And this is only the beginning – we have extended this feature to enable you to publish across more social networks, like only on Facebook and Twitter, but also on Google, My Space, Yahoo and LinkedIn!.  Make sure to try them all, they will really help you in your email marketing campaign.

Enhance your brand presence online, increase your audience and subscribers and boost your sales by engaging more fully with potential clients – all with our new social share tool.

Extend your email marketing reach - with more social share options!

We promised you more social share options, didn't we? They’re finally here!

 We’ve extended our social share tool to enable you to share your newsletters, not only on Facebook and Twitter, but also on Google, My Space, Yahoo and LinkedIn!

Not sure what social share is?  Don’t worry, I sometimes struggle to keep up with all our new features myself. Social share is a tool that enables you to share your newsletters with your friends and followers on all the social networks I just mentioned.  Basically, you’re able to publish your newsletter to your social network profile on Facebook, Twitter, etc.  It will show up as a brief description of your newsletter along with a link to the full newsletter. 

 The handy thing is that you can now do it all from within your Emailbrain account, without having to log in and post updates on all your social accounts (and you probably have quite a few) manually.  We also have an URL shortener, that will automatically shorten the link to your newsletter for you.  It looks more appealing that way and it’s especially useful on Twitter where you’re limited to 140 characters.

 We realize how important it is in today’s marketing environment to integrate and automate your various marketing channels.  It’s the only way to stop on top of it all – email, social, mobile…  So we’re trying to make it a little easier. 

Please note: We recently announced that we were temporarily suspending the Twitter social share option due to technical difficulties.  Twitter social share is once again available along with the launch of these new social share options.
