Forward to a friend feature for email marketing

khughes

Add forward to a friend feature to email. When the user clicks on this link, they are taken to a form where they can enter 10 colleagues email addresses and contact details in which the email is resent to them (which looks exactly like the original email)

This is part of this request. Not certain how this can be tagged so the roll-up to the idea has more up votes.

Has this feature been built yet?  It seems to be a comon feature in emails I receive from other companies. Thanks

I agree this would be helpful! It would be awesome if there was a CTA that could say "share with a friend" or "share with a colleague" and it would forward the email.

Would be great if we could just have the basic version we place in a newsletter that is a mailto link but it forwards the email the link is clicked from.

I can't believe this doesn't exist. Let's brainstorm a hack. Can we link to a pre-populated email or form that we don't capture names, which triggers an email to the friend to a form? (Yuck.) Surely someone has a better idea.

We have this feature in MailChimp and would like to have it in HubSpot to continue to extend the reach of our emails.

Agree! I send event invitations out via marketing email in HS and my team wants a copy so that they can email the invitation to their networks as well. I don't want to add my team to HubSpot as leads and would prefer not to have to send the email to me and then forward each of them to use.
