Abit about

FreeTellaFriend is a free service to allow your visitors to share your website with their friends. The idea is simple; you place a ‘tell a friend’ button on your website, and when your visitor decides to tell their friend about your website, they click this button which then presents them with a straightforward form to e-mail their friends.

The great addition to FreeTellaFriend is your visitor can enter their e-mail username and password (we support major e-mail providers) and our system will automatically retrieve their contact list. Thereafter they can choose who to e-mail the website to. If one user decides to e-mail all their contacts, your website will be exposed to over 50 friends (on average).

The following is supported: Tell a Friend, Social Bookmarking and Add to Favorites.
