Set up Client Connect
Client Connect is provided so that your clients don't need to give you their login details for the social accounts they want you to manage for them. It enables your clients to add their social media accounts as profiles via your own website.
The profiles will be added to the main admin user on your account, even if the widget has been set up when logged into another user account when selecting to set up Client Connect. You may then need to transfer or share or profiles to other user accounts.
How exactly can I use Client Connect?
A useful scenario to picture how this works is to imagine you’re managing many clients for whom you won’t be creating Sendible user accounts.
Set up a Client Connect page on your website and then copy the widget code from your Sendible account to that page. Once this is set up and ready, share that Client Connect page with your clients.
By selecting the appropriate button (social profile type), your clients will be able to add their social media account to your Sendible account. Once a user adds a social media account, it will become instantly available in Sendible, where it can be used in the same way you would any other profile.
How can I add Client Connect to my website?
You can find Client Connect within your dashboard. Please follow these steps:
- Go to Profiles and click Add Profiles.
- On the right side of the page, at the bottom of the categories, click the Client Connect box.
- Once prompted, enter your website domain name, for example, https://www.mywebsite.com.
Important: The target domain must be the exact site address. For example, if www is missing, then only add https://mywebsite.com. And please do include the "https://" part.
- From the drop-down list, select all the types of profiles you would like to add to your Client Connect widget.
Note: The following profile types cannot be added via Client Connect: Facebook Groups, Instagram Reminders, and WordPress blogs.
- Then click the Generate Code button.
- Click the Copy To Clipboard button and paste it into your website.
- Once you've copied it, click the Done button to close the window.
Important: If you are embedding the code into a Wix blog when you are in edit mode, you will receive the error Client Connect is not available on this domain. However, once you publish the page, the widget will display.Note: We only provide the code for the widget; we do not provide support on installing or customizing the widget.
Can I change how the buttons look?
For the best experience with Client Connect, we recommend adding styling to the connect buttons through a coding language called CSS.
The Client Connect buttons are by default unstyled and appear as just a button with text describing the profile. We will provide basic CSS styling to improve the button's appearance, and you can decide whether you wish to use these styles or create your own.
