What Is a Share Link?
Share links are specially created links for different social media networks that allow instant sharing without having to copy and paste links manually, making it possible for your visitors to simply share your website content.
You’ve surely seen the “share this” icons below blog posts on websites or noticed the “share” button on Facebook posts. Sharing content online – whether it’s a fantastic blog post, a YouTube video or a startling news article – has to be simple or people just aren’t going to do it.
How Does the Share Link Creator Work?
The Share Link Creator tool couldn’t be easier to use. Just add the URL of the web page, blog, image, video etc., into the box, select the social media platform you want to create a link for (or choose “all”), add any text you want to add (works with Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest) and click the “create links” button.
In seconds, you’ll have custom links for sharing your content that you can test, and copy. Plus, you can copy the HTML code for the link so you can add “share” links to your website and emails, too.
With Pinterest, LinkedIn and email links, you can click the “more options” button for additional information to be added to your link. For email, you can add the email address, subject, and message body. For Pinterest, you can add an image thumbnail URL and text, and for LinkedIn, you can add a post title, text, and source.
Why Do I Need a Share Link?
Not only do share links make it easier for you to share custom links to your own content, but by making these links available to your visitors you increase the chances of your content being shared. While some website builders and platforms like WordPress support share buttons and links, these are not always available – for example, if you’re on a free plan on a website builder, you may have to pay to access share buttons. The share link generator is a free and easy way of getting the links you need.
Where Can I Use the Share Links I Generate?
Share links can be used to share content via your social media platforms. You can also add these links to your website and email newsletters for others to share on their social media.
