Using the Forward to a Friend List



You can implement links within your Act-On emails to allow your email recipients to market on your behalf. This is done through the Forward to a Friend link within the rich text editor of the Message Builder.

When the original email recipient clicks this hyperlink, they will be sent to an Act-On landing page that allows them to enter their friend's or colleague's name and email address. The landing page also displays a copy of the email message that will be sent.

After the friend's or colleague's information is submitted, Act-On will send a copy of the original email directly to the colleague. The Forward to a Friend list will automatically populate with the referrer and referee's information.

You can find the Forward to a Friend list under: 

  • Contacts > Other Lists > Account List > Contacts folder
