Share the event page or registration form on social media

One of the easiest ways to share your events with your audience is to use the direct social media share icons that you will find in several areas, including the event portal site for your account and on the public event pages and registration forms.

Here is how they will be shown to your audience on each of these pages:

Note: If you do not want to have the social media links show on any publicly generated pages, like the event portal site, event page, or registration form, you have the option to remove them. To do this, go to Settings > Configurations > Portal Site > Component Display Options, and check the box for the option "Hide social sharing icons on all generated pages". This is helpful to do when your events tend to be for a closed community and you don't need the social sharing, or you just want to remove them.

Share event links on social media

One of the best ways to promote your event and get people to register is to share it around on your social media channels. Just like you would share any other link, you just need the URL link, either to your event page, the event registration form, or your entire event portal site, which you would then paste as a post on your social media.

To access these links, open your chosen Event Details page within your Corsizio account, and select Sharing / embed codes, which you will find in the menu on the left side under Tools or in the Tools icon bar.

Add your social media link to your event portal site or "Thank you" screen

You can make people aware of your social media presence and invite them to join in or follow by adding navigational links to a social media page or group on your event portal site header and the "Thank you" screen attendees see after registering for one of your events. To configure this, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Settings > Configurations > Portal Site.
  2. Scroll down to the Extra Navigation Links section and fill in the desired label, direct link, and target placement. 

  3. Scroll down to Save site setup before leaving this area.

Social media links on the event portal site

For use on the top main navigation menu of your portal site and event pages, it is recommended that you keep the labels short and use 1 to 3 words max. For example, use "Twitter" or "Follow on Twitter". Here is an example of how this would look like:

Social media links on "Thank you" screen

Here is an example of how such links would show on the  "Thank you" screen after registration:

Add your social media link to your event page

Whether you would like to attract new followers or share with potential attendees what some of your previous events consisted of or looked like, which you have featured on your social media account, you may wish to include a link to one or several of your social media platforms on your event page(s).
Your social media link can be included anywhere you choose in the description of your event, which you complete as part of Step 3 — Description & Content, when creating or editing an event. The text can be formatted and stylized using the rich-text  Editor or using basic HTML in Code view.

For a text link

You can simply use the "link" icon from the rich-text Editor toolbar. If you are using the Code view instead, you will use some basic HTML instead.

For an image link

First, you will have to find or host a small image of your desired social media icon on your website or from a public place and acquire its full URL (web address), as Corsizio does not host any files or images of that sort on its platform. Then, simply use the "image" icon from the rich-text Editor toolbar, highlight the image in the Editor, and use the "link" icon from the Editor toolbar to make it a hyperlink.

If you need to re-size the image, you will need to work with some HTML in the Code view instead of the rich-text Editor. You can copy the following HTML code snippet and paste it into the Code view of the content box. Then fill it in with your information as follows: replace link_url with your social media profile URL, replace image_url with the image URL for your hosted image, then adjust the width and height numbers as needed. The size is set to be a square image of 36 pixels, which is common for a social media icon, but you can modify it as you see fit.

<a href="link_url">
<img src="image_url" width="36" height="36"/>
