Social Sharing

Below are some of the reasons why you should use Social Sharing  (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) within your Sites and Pages.

Social Sharing...

  • Is another way for you to connect with your current or potential customers.
  • Is an important place for you to generate brand awareness.
  • Social media is more interactive than just having a website.
  • Is another way for you to show how you communicate and engage with your customers.
  • Customers don't just want to visit your website to know who you are and what you offer — they may also go to your Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc. to find out your relationships or interactions with the community.

Simplero provides you with several places to use Social Sharing:

  1. Website
  2. Pages
  3. Landing Pages: Full Themed
  4. Email Templates
  5. Membership Site Pages
  6. Product under Settings
  7. Integrations under Settings

When you use Social Sharing as part of your Site(s) or Page(s), you will see the different Social Network Icons on the Footer of your website/page. You must enter all your social network URLs in the Social profiles under your Site configuration. 

Here's how...

Main Site & Membership sites

This is where you will enter your Social profiles for Facebook, Google+, Instagram, etc. Once you've entered all or some of your social media information you will see the icons on the bottom footer of your website. 

Please follow the same below steps when creating social sharing on your membership sites. 

  1. Select Marketing from your Simplero Dashboard.
  2. Choose Website from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select the Configure tab
  4. Scroll down to the Social profiles sections and enter your link to your various social media

Pages

When you add Social Sharing to your pages you'll see buttons on the bottom of your page. These will show in addition to what you already have on the bottom of your footer which you've entered in the Site configuration. You can turn the footer off from the settings so it will only show the social media buttons.
