Sharing Activity via EmailSOLVE
Jul 3, 2019 3:50 PM
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?

There are potentially a few ways to achieve this:
1) Mailto Link. For example,
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?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>

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
