Tutorial: promotion virality system

Easypromos provides a virality system that is 100% configurable, enabling you to display different messages depending on the promotion type. Up to five types of message can be shared

When sharing the promotion, users can choose which of the following four networks they want to use to share the message: Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. After the pop-up opens, and the user chooses a network, the personalized sharing message appears.


Below, we show where the pop-up activating share buttons are for each promotion and the type of message that can be configured with them.
