What is the email share button?

The email share button is a simple, straight-forward, and streamlined button that integrates into your website or blog, allowing visitors to easily share to email to share your content in a single click.

In other words, it’s the fastest route between you and greater reach. And if you’re a content producer of any kind, that’s a must.

How do I email a link to someone?

There are two basic ways to share to emailthe easy way and the hard way.

If a website has enabled the ShareThis email share button:

  1. Look for the gray email share button, pinned either to the post or floating down the left side of the page;
  2. Click that button, and your email will open in your email app or another window – complete with a pre-placed link and subject line.
  3. Simply fill in the email’s recipient, add a comment (if you’d like), and click send. Done!

If a website hasn’t enabled the email share button, then the process involves a few extra steps:

1.     Copy the URL of the post or page you’d like to share;

2.     Navigate to your email app or open in your browser;

3.     Start a new email and fill in the email’s recipient;

4.     Copy + paste the URL into the message compose box;

5.     Add a comment (if you’d like);

6.     Click Send; and

7.     Return to the original URL to continue reading.

How do I send a link to an email address?

There are two basic methods of sending a link to an email address: 1) via the built-in ShareThis email share button; and 2) via the old-fashioned copy+paste method.

As highlighted above, if the website or blog has enabled the email share button: 1) Click the gray email share button and an email will auto-load in your default email app; 2) fill in your recipient and message; and 3) click Send. Done!

If the website hasn’t enabled the ShareThis email share button, then the process involves a few more steps: You’ll have to 1) Copy the URL from your browser; 2) navigate to your default email program; 3) go through the standard new-email process; 4) paste the URL into the browser; and 5) click Send.

How do I email a link from Chrome / Firefox / Safari?

To email a link from within your browser, you’ll either need to install a plugin or – fingers crossed! – use a website’s email share button – typically, an email icon, usually a gray envelope, that is pegged to the top of the page or floating down the side of the page. On websites with the email share button, this is a one-click process.

How do I add an email share button to my website?

If you have any interest in extending your content reach and audience, you must enable the ShareThis email share button: an easy-to-install, simple-to-use button that enables one-click content sharing via email.

Here’s how to add an email share button to your website:

1.     Navigate to the ShareThis email share button;

2.     Select either inline (pinned to a specific location) or sticky (fixed to the side of the screen) buttons;

3.     Select email as your social channel (although, while you’re here, feel free to choose others, too);

4.     Design your buttons to complement your site;

5.     Grab your code and plug into your website or blog.

And, there you have it – a one-click email share button, to spread your content far and wide!
