HootSuite HQ is buzzing with the development of a number of new tools and applications to help HootSuite enthusiasts enhance their experience on the dashboard.
Next up is the HootSuite Social Share tool which allows partners and their followers to spread messages to even greater audiences across multiple networks.
Today we’re pleased to announce the venerable email marketing company, Constant Contact, as a launch partner with HootSuite. They’ve built the Social Share tool right in to their latest release for the convenience of their customers.
And, whether you are a big company or an emerging blogger, HootSuite’s Social Share is ready to go for you today.
The social share tool acts much like the beloved Hootlet. A simple click pops open a window pre-populated with your custom messaging that your fans can add their thoughts to and share on whichever networks they choose. Plus your audience can use all the usual HootSuite tools like scheduling, adding images and more.
Implementing this tool couldn’t be easier — simply add the code snippet to a blog, newsletter, or website and your readers can quickly amplify across their social graph.
Constant Contact has baked the Social Share button right into their web dashboard. Customers can share across all social networks with a tool that’s fully integrated into their familiar interface.
What’s more, we’ve streamlined the account provisioning process, meaning that Constant Contact customers can create a HootSuite account in just a few steps — no forms, no applications, just a click and you’re good to go.
This integration builds upon our co-marketing agreement with Constant Contact, and will allow Constant Contact customers to easily pass along their email marketing messages to any HootSuite-ready social network.
In their blog post titled, Constant Contact and HootSuite Together Make Social Sharing Easier, Constant Contact had this to say:
That’s right, Constant Contact has partnered with HootSuite as part of HootSuite’s new Social Share feature, and it has multiple benefits for our users. With HootSuite, you can sit down for 30 minutes at the beginning of the week and create five, 10, or more posts — for Twitter, Facebook, or other sites — all at once. You can then schedule them to go live on different days and at different times throughout the week, and they’ll automatically be posted for you. If your posts contain a link — say to a coupon or event you created in Constant Contact — HootSuite will even track how many clicks you’ve received.”
Plans to Share
We’ve built two versions of this tool in order to reach the most number of users:
