Better Email Newsletter Sharing on Facebook and Twitter
Social media is a big part of the marketing world these days. Most net-savvy businesses (including us here at AWeber) have a presence on Facebook and Twitter. That being the case, we’ve found that people are always looking for ways to make their social media and email marketing campaigns work together.
Those of you familiar with our service will know that we’ve helped customers automatically tweet their email newsletters for some time now.
Recently, we’ve updated our social media options to make combining your social media efforts with your AWeber account even easier.
Automatically Post Broadcasts On Facebook!
With our new Social Media / Sharing options you can automatically post your broadcasts to your Facebook wall.
In the spirit of consistency, you can create new connections with Twitter and Facebook through your account’s List Settings page. This is also where you can pick a default Twitter and Facebook account specific to each list.
If you want to get started with this new feature right away, you can refer to our knowledge base for a more detailed walkthrough.
Multiple Twitter / Facebook Accounts? No Problem.
As we were revisiting our options for social media integration, we decided to make it easier for our users to work with multiple Twitter accounts. If you’re unfamiliar with how Twitter works with AWeber, we have an easy-to-follow knowledge base article.
When creating a broadcast you will find the options to tweet / post your broadcast towards the bottom of the page under the “Social Media / Sharing” section. The accounts you have selected as your defaults will automatically be selected for your convenience.
Don’t Forget To Check The Preview!
So now that you’ve added your Twitter and Facebook accounts and selected a default for each, we’ve provided you with a preview of what your new tweet / post will look like. As a good measure and reassurance you can see exactly what you are about to post / tweet before you send your message.
