Do you have a particular image or a new campaign visual that you want the world to see? With Ambassify's Share campaign, you can easily provide your audience with the visual and enable your ambassadors to share it with their social networks directly.

How does it work?

Go to Create campaign and select the Like, comment or share our content campaign type in the catalog. From there, hit the browse button, upload your visual, then click "Next".

Next up, you can customize your campaign as you please, by adding a description, rewards, and targeting the right audience. To also make the image you want your Ambassadors to share visible in the campaign itself and give them a preview, we advise uploading the same image as a header image.

Extra settings

Depending on if API sharing is enabled/disabled in your account, there are a few more settings to take into account.

API sharing is enabled:

  • As an admin, you don't have to configure the sharing settings for the channels that are supported by the API share (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook Pages)

  • If you add networks to share on that don't support API sharing (E.g. Whatsapp, Facebook personal profiles, Pinterest, ...), you will have to configure your sharing settings for these networks: open your campaign in edit campaign > scroll down to Preview and fill in the title, description, and illustration; you can easily add more versions by hitting the Add preview button

  • When sharing an image, adding a default message for each network is common. This way, your advocates share the image together with a context-providing message

  • For Linkedin, Twitter, and Facebook Pages, users will be able to share the image straight from the campaign and the image will show directly in their feed / on their wall (together with the sharing copy and/or default message)

  • For the networks that don't support API sharing, users will get a classic pop-up to share images. This means they will share a link to the image on their feed instead of actually sharing the image itself

The video below shows how the campaign looks when it is published in the community. As you can see, it's very easy for your community members to share your image with their social networks.

API sharing is disabled

  • As an admin you have to fully configure your sharing settings: open your campaign in edit campaign > scroll down to Preview and fill in the title, description, and illustration. The preview contains the elements that will show in the campaign preview as well as what will show on social media. You can easily add more versions by hitting the Add preview button. When the image is being shared by your advocates, the Ambassify system will randomly pick different versions to publish

  • When sharing an image, adding a default message for each network is a common practice. This way, your advocates share the image together with a context-providing message. In the sharing process, a copy to clipboard functionality will show

  • Users will get a classic pop-up to share images. This means they will share a link to the image on their feed instead of actually sharing the image itself

  • Shares are not verified

  • There is no dedicated share button for Facebook Pages

Tip: sharing GIF visuals

When combined with API share, you can use the "Share an Image" campaign to upload a GIF. This is a great way to share short videos and animated visuals. Moreover, GIF videos are shown in-feed on social networks (e.g., LinkedIn), they start playing automatically, play in a loop, and therefore catch more attention, which is ideal when you want to share animations that play in a sequence.

Remember, this is only possible via API share. In any other case, it is not possible due to the limitations set by the social media websites.
