What’s better than a Mad Mimi promotion? A Mad Mimi promotion connected to all your social profiles, and sharable by your audience!
In Mad Mimi, there are two different types of “Social Links” that you can add to your promotions. The first are Social Icons, that link your users to your various profiles on all your different social platforms. The other are Social Sharing Links that let your readers share the email, themselves.
You can also watch our great overview video of Social Tools, too!
Adding Social Icons to your Mad Mimi promotions
Watch a video on how to set up your Social Icons, here.
You can connect any of your social profiles to your Mad Mimi account, and have each of them show up as an icon at the bottom of your Mad Mimi emails. (You can also change the position of them, using our Tweaks add-on, or insert them manually with our macro shortcuts, too.) Just click on “Add Things” at the top of any Mimi screen, and scroll until you see the Social Links option, and turn it on. Then you can set it up, from there.
You won’t be able to see this row of icons, while you’re editing your promotion (you can read more about that, here). But they will show up on the Preview page, and when you send your email, for sure!
Now, these icons are not used for sharing your promotions, but have no fear! Read on, to share…
Adding Social Sharing Links to your Mad Mimi emails
The Social Sharing Links are a way for you to encourage your audience to get involved in the conversation, and share your emails themselves.
When you hit “Send” on any promotion, and get the the Mailing Details page, you’ll see a column of checkboxes at the bottom:
You can tick these options, to add buttons at the very top of your email, that will let people do the following:
Like your newsletter on Facebook
Tweet your newsletter on Twitter
Pin your newsletter to Pinterest
+1 your newsletter on Google+
or Like your newsletter on LinkedIn
When folks receive your promotion in their inboxes, or when they share your promotion on the web, your promotion will include the Share Buttons for each social network you selected, like this:
