Sharing Activity via Email

I'm looking to see if anyone has had luck allowing audiences to share an activity through email? For example, there are social buttons that, when clicked, will share a blog post with a pre-populated message about that post. 

 

What I'm looking for is the same thing but for emails. So, when clicked, the button would provide the user with a pre-populated email about the post and give them a field to enter in email addresses they'd like to share the post with. 

 

For my purpose, I'm working to set up a referral program. When a client registers, we want to offer them the chance to share that registration with their network via email and social platforms. 

 

I hope this makes sense. Does anyone out there no what I'm talking about or have a potential solution?

Hi @stephanie-boyle 

 

There are potentially a few ways to achieve this:

 

1) Mailto Link. For example,

 

<a href="mailto:add@emailhere.com?subject=Big%20News&body=Your-Message-body-goes-here">Email Us</a>

 

Above you could leave the email portion blank to make sure the sender adds an email there

 

<a href="mailto:?subject=Big%20News&body=Your-Message-body-goes-here">Email Us</a>

 

More details on how to use Mailto links here: https://css-tricks.com/snippets/html/mailto-links/

 

From there you would just need to style this as a button.

 

2) Using an external social sharing service, for example, https://www.addthis.com/integration/hubspot

 

3) Use a social sharing module from the Hubspot module marketplace, for example, https://marketplace.hubspot.com/products/leadstreet/cm-blogpost-custom-social-share
