Don't need to say much more than that. It's definitely something worthwhile and usable. It would be great to know the social activity of our subscribers and target them appropriately, as well as everything else it offers. That being said I read the info on the website and have not actually used it since I am not a MC client, but it does look really rad and has certainly piqued my interest. They are going to charge for the features after March 2011 which is reasonable.
I'm hoping that CM is going to respond and say that something similar is on the radar, even as a paid add-on?
Hi tinker, welcome to the forums! Social integration with campaigns is certainly on our radar, however we don't have a timeline as yet. As always, we're giving this one considerable thought and are happily collecting feedback on how we can make our potential solution good value for you and your clients.
Sorry that we can't provide a date as yet, but I'll keep you posted when it becomes a reality. Cheers, tinker!
I just came across this as well on the MC website. All of our campaign landing pages have the AddThis socialization toolbar included, but it would be great to have this capabilitiy and reports built into the CM solution.
Thanks, spiderdan! I'll pass this on to our team. I don't have any details yet on how we're going to implement social sharing yet, but I'l certainly keep you posted, closer to release.
Another vote for "Share to Social" from me
Thanks PDD2010, I've added it to the tally. Hang tight - I'll keep you in the loop as we get more info.
Add us to any notification you send out eventually too please. We've started to get questions on this as well. :)
Thanks, cmchris. To confirm, social sharing is on the way. I'll update this thread as more details come to light, plus we'll have full details posted on the blog.
Excellent, look forward to hearing more at the time.
Hi folks, we're very pleased to announce that we've just added social sharing to all Campaign Monitor accounts. I know we've been discussing Social Pro here, but hopefully our solution shapes up better ;)
Using our simple template tags, it's now super easy to add 'Like on Facebook' and 'Share on Twitter' links and buttons to your email campaigns. Your clients can also add social links and buttons to their email templates using the WYSIWYG editor.
In addition, we've backed up social sharing with robust real-time reports, complete with Facebook likes, tweets and forwards via email. It's also possible to share sent campaigns from within your account.
Many thanks for all your feedback and patience while we've worked on bringing social integration to the app. Find out more about social sharing in our blog, or get in contact with us, should you have any questions or suggestions :)
