Social Sharing Buttons

Updated on 14 May 2024

Social Sharing buttons (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc) at the bottom of your Emails and Pages allow your customers to share those emails and pages to their social media accounts and spread the word about your amazing business 🎉

Social sharing buttons are an important way for you to generate brand awareness.

NOTE! If you’re looking to add Social Media Icons to the default footer of your Website and Membership sites that link to your social media accounts, head over to this guide.


Simplero offers several places to add your Social Sharing Buttons…

Click on a title below to jump to that section:

  1. Website and Membership Site Pages

  2. Landing Pages

  3. Email Templates


How to add Social Sharing Buttons to your Site and Landing Pages

When you add Social Sharing buttons to your pages, you'll see buttons on the bottom of your page. These Sharing buttons will show in addition to the Social media icons you’ve already added to the bottom of your footer via your Site configuration page (see this guide).

If you prefer, you can turn off the Default footer in your Page Settings so your page only shows the Sharing buttons:

Website and Membership Site Pages:

  1. Head to the Site (Marketing > Main Website or Content > Membership Sites and choose the Site).

  2. Select the Pages tab.

  3. Click on the Editor button on the left next to the Page title (ie. Home or About):


  4. In the Sections tab, click the + Add section button:


  5. Find and select the Sharing section:


  6. Click the Save changes button and you're all set.

NOTE! Social Media Icons and Social Sharing Buttons each serve a different purpose, so it’s valuable to include both on your pages.

But sometimes you might just want to show the Social Sharing buttons on the page and hide the Social Media Icons in your Website Footer.

If that’s the case, here’s how to do it…

  1. Select the Page Settings from the Editor, scroll to the Layout section and mark the Hide footer box


  2. Click the Save changes button and you'll now only see the Social Sharing buttons on the bottom of your Page (the Footer will be hidden).


Landing Pages:

The following steps are for landing pages using our Classic Editor. Click here to use our 2.0 builder instead.

When you add Social Sharing to your Landing page, you'll see the social sharing buttons on the bottom of your page (just like with Site pages).

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Select Marketing from your Simplero Dashboard.

  2. Choose Landing Pages & Forms from the dropdown menu.

  3. Click on the Editor button to the right of the Landing Page you want to edit (make sure it uses the Classic Editor - not 2.0):



  4. In the Sections tab, click the + Add section button:


  5. Find and select the Sharing section:


  6. Click the Save changes button and you're all set.



NOTE! To hide the Social Media Icons and just show the Social Sharing Buttons on your Landing Page:

  1. Select the Appearance tab from the Editor and mark the Hide footer box:


  2. Click the Save changes button and you'll now only see the Social Sharing buttons on the bottom of your Page (the Footer will be hidden).


Email Templates

  1. Select Marketing from your Simplero Dashboard.

  2. Select the Email broadcasts tab.

  3. Select the three dots in the top right corner and choose Email designs from the dropdown menu:


  4. Select a Template:


  5. Scroll down to the Social section and mark the box to Include social sharing links in emails sent to lists:


  6. Click the Save changes button and you will now see the Social Sharing button on the bottom of all emails using this template:


NOTE! Sharing links will only show when the broadcast is sent to a List, since this is the only case there will be a public, sharable URL.
