How do I add a forward-to-a-friend link to my campaigns?

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: <forwardtoafriend></forwardtoafriend>

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: [forwardtoafriend]

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.

Campaign personalization

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.
