Try Video Email Free
You and your video email recipients have always been able to share emails and videos straight to Facebook and Twitter. Emails were shared only from the inbox. Videos were shared only from the player. Of course, you and your recipients can still do this social sharing.
Now, though, you can also share your emails, videos, and forms straight to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ from inside your BombBomb account. This is a quick and convenient way to increase the reach of the assets you build inside our video email marketing software.
Sharing Your Emails, Videos, and Forms Straight to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+:
What Remains The Same About BombBomb Social Sharing:
- Sharing to Facebook and Twitter
- Sharing emails from the inbox
- Enabling recipients to share your emails from the inbox
- Sharing videos from the video player
What’s New About BombBomb Social Sharing:
- Sharing from inside your BombBomb account
- Sharing the custom forms you’ve built
- Sharing to LinkedIn
- Sharing to Google+
Tips for Social Sharing:
- Make sure you’re signed into the right account – the one from which you want to share (your personal account or your business/organization account)
- Consider sharing from both your personal and your business/organization accounts
- Customize the language on the post you’re sharing to promise specific value and to help generate more clicks (we give you default posting language, like the title of your email, video, or form)
- When sharing, ask people to share further your email, video, or form (loyalists will help you spread the message or opportunity)
- Share your newsletters, as well as other content that’s more general in nature (highly targeted or personal emails and videos are obviously not meant for social sharing)
- Share custom forms as simple landing pages for new offers or special promotions

Email + Video + Social = BombBomb
So, here’s a little insight into social sharing of your emails. If you enable it, your email can be shared straight to Facebook and Twitter. Of course, it can also be forwarded.
To enable social sharing, you must check the “Allow Sharing” box in the Email Edit screen.
When an email recipient clicks the Twitter link, it drops generic text and a link into a new tweet. Here, I modified the generic text to position the link.
When an email recipient clicks on the Facebook link, it creates a post with generic text, a link, and a choice of images from your email. Here, I modified the headline and body text, selected a thumbnail, and captioned the post.
When your email gets forwarded, it’s received in the inbox (as in the “Share from the Inbox” graphic above). When the Twitter or Facebook shares get clicked by the sharer’s followers and friends, the email is generated on a page like the one below. Notice that the Forward, Twitter, and Facebook sharing is top center.
One final note: do not be afraid to ask your email recipients to share your email by forwarding it to friends or by tweeting it or by posting it to Facebook. You can do this in text and/or in your video. If you have a high quality email list and a strong community, some of your recipients would be happy to do so. Again, just ask (and give thanks!).
There you have it – a quick look at social sharing of your emails by forward or to Twitter and Facebook! BombBomb helps you increase the reach of your emails by adding easy share functionality. When you track your email, you’ll see social media share counts, along with opens, clicks, video views, and more.
In a separate post, we’ll give you a similar look at social sharing of your videos sent with BombBomb.
