Have you received, or seen a great activation idea online? Dare to share with all your colleagues at once? Just forward the email or write a few thought starters and create a post from the comfort of your email program. [You need to be added as a contributor first, write an email to email@example.com to get the posting address]
The subject of your email becomes the title of your post, and the body and attachments of the email become the content of your post. Just remember to add #end before your email signature so all that chunk of copy doesn’t appear on the post.
You can post text, photos, music, video, documents and all kinds of files. Attach a few pictures and the system will make a nice photo gallery automatically. Copy and paste an YouTube link and the video will be embedded on the post. It works like magic.
+ Keep the posts on topic and don’t post rubbish. Inspiring ideas only, please.
