Share event page or registration form on social media
One of the easiest ways to share with your audience about your events is to use the direct social media share icons that you will find in several areas within your account, like the Event Details page, as well as on all your public event pages and registration forms.
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 or 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.
Add your social media link to your event portal site or "Thank You" screen
Here is an example of how these would show up on your customer's "Thank You" screen after registration:
For use on your portal site, it is recommended that you keep the labels short, and use 1 to 3 words max. For example, use "Facebook" or "Facebook Group" or "Follow on Facebook". Here is an example of how this can look like:
Add your social media link to your event page
For a text link
Place the text your audience will see in square brackets, followed directly, without any spaces, by the URL link to your social media profile in round brackets, as follows:
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, copy the format below and place the image URL in the first set of round brackets, and the URL link to your social media profile in the second set of round brackets.
If you need to re-size the image, you will need to work with some HTML code, instead of Markdown, and can only input this into the Full Description box (not the Short Intro Summary box).
Copy the following pattern and fill it in with your information as follows: replace
link_url with your social media profile URL, and replace
image_url with the image URL for your hosted image, and adjust the size numbers if needed. They are currently set to feature a 36 pixel square image. This would be a common size for a social media icon, but you can modify it as you need.
<a href="link_url"> <img src="image_url" width="36" height="36"/> </a>
Here is an example of how this can show on your public event page:
