The forward-to-a-friend link encourages recipients to pass on your emails to other people they know. When a recipient clicks the link, they're taken to a custom "Forward to a friend" page to enter the names and email addresses of contacts to share the campaign with.
Here's an example "Forward to a friend" page:
Adding the forward-to-a-friend link to your campaign
Just add this tag to your campaign HTML:
In between the tags you can add your own text, or an image reference. Here's a text link example:
<forwardtoafriend>Forward this email</forwardtoafriend>
Note: For plain text emails, use this tag:
When your campaign is sent the tags will automatically be converted into a custom forward-to-a-friend link which is tracked for inclusion in your campaign report.
If you have personalized a campaign with information like the subscriber's name, email or other custom field data, personalization will be maintained in the forwarded email.
Adding inline CSS to your forward-to-a-friend link
By adding a
style="" attribute to the forward to a friend tag, we will automatically add that inline CSS to the link.
For example, to have the link render in blue, size-11 font you'd add the following style attribute:
<forwardtoafriend style="font-size:11px; color:#4fb5e9;"></forwardtoafriend>
When the tag is converted, the output would be something like this:
<a href="http://abcwidgets.forwardtoafriend.com/j-ilglkk-l-u" style="font-size:11px; color:#4fb5e9;">forward this email to a friend</a>
Note: The sub-domain (abcwidgets) and link ID (j-ilglkk-l-u) shown above are examples only.
