We are very excited to announce a new and improved way to take your event marketing beyond the inbox and increase your registrations.
We call it our Social Share tool, and it was created to help you schedule a series of social media posts on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to promote your event — all from one place.
Here’s how Social Share can work for you:
Save time with suggested content and schedule
After creating or scheduling an event campaign and choosing to share it using Social Share, you will see a series of posts automatically created for you to post or schedule later.
These posts include suggested messaging, and images from your Constant Contact photo library. If you prefer to customize your social posts, you can easily customize the messaging and image to match your business’s unique voice and brand.
Easily plan and manage social posts for your event campaign
Social Share allows you to promote your event by scheduling multiple social posts per day for multiple social channels.
Simply connect your Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn channels and you can create posts that go to all your channels or just one.
Looking to promote your event well in advance? You can schedule social posts up to six months after your initial event announcement goes out, giving you the ability to engage with your social audience well into the future and drive registration leading up to the event.
Use our list or calendar view to map out your scheduled posts, and reschedule or add posts as you get closer to the big day.
Get new insights with detailed reporting
After your social posts are published, you can track the engagement of each post. View the engagement, clicks, and reach that each post received to see what connected with your audience and what to change for your next campaign.
These are just a few of the many new features that will give you even more control over your social sharing.
Try Social Share for yourself!
Next time you send an event campaign in Constant Contact, you’ll see the option to “Schedule Posts.”
Click on the blue button to activate Social Share and make sure you’ve connected the right social networks to your Constant Contact account. In just a few minutes, you’ll be able to schedule a series of social posts to extend the reach and registrations for your next event.
