Add an RSS Share Option

You can add an RSS share option to your campaigns by using the *|RSSITEM:SHARE|* merge tag.

Using this tag allows your subscribers to share individual articles in your RSS feed, as opposed to sharing the entire email newsletter. So if your code looks like this:
RSS Share Tag in campaign

Your final emails will look like this:
RSS Share Tag in Finished Campaign

If you just use our *|RSSITEM:SHARE|* tag all by itself, we'll include a whole bunch of social network icons.

Your subscribers will see this:
RSS Full Share Tag as it appears to subscribers

So, if you prefer to limit the choices to, say, three networks (like in the screenshots above), you can set up your tag like this:
*|RSSITEM:SHARE:Facebook, Twitter, Digg|*

Here's the list of social sharing options:

  • BlinkList
  • Delicious
  • Design Float
  • Digg
  • DZone
  • Facebook
  • Google

  • MisterWong
  • Mixx
