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.

Social Media List Settings

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.

Tweet From Multiple Accounts

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!

Tweet / Post 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.

    It is a pity that I cannot integrate my aweber newsletter with my business page. surely this is more useful than with personal pages since it is a business marketing tool that you are selling?

    Quick update on this: a few of you pointed out that it would be awesome to be able to post to your Facebook fan pages, not just to your personal profiles.

    This is now possible.

    Wow, this is great feature, we are live on web 2.0 and social media era. I think this feature can help more on my marketing.

    But how about facebook policy? Now we are limited on facebook marketing on fanpage? My worry is being considered as spam on facebook.

    When will you have google+ broadcast (must be to different profile/rss feed) and support facebook pages (and no post to main FB page). Both are essential for anyone doing business oriented posting (and I can’t see many individuals using a pay service like this).

    I would like to edit the facebook and twitter post – i.e add the intial paragraph from my email to make it more appealing to click on in news feeds. Is this possible as I cannot find a way?

    Hello Vicky,
    When you choose to post your broadcast messages directly to Facebook or Twitter, those sites decide what to pull. To pull specific content from your email, you can always create the post yourself in your Facebook on Twitter account and link to your archived message. I’ll definitely pass along your idea of allowing edits to Facebook and Twitter posts – it’s a great suggestion!

    Hi Beverly. Sorry to hear you’re not seeing our Facebook posts. Because Facebook’s algorithm determines which posts get seen, it’s important to engage with our content on a regular basis so our content shows up in your News Feed more often. You can also subscribe to our newsletter if you haven’t already.
