When you're sending out Broadcasts or setting up a Sequence, the last thing you want to do is remember to add a signature every time. The good news is, you don't have to!

Anything you add to an Email Template will repeat for every email you create with it. This is a great place to add in your signature.

Create or choose your Email Template

Our Visual Email Template editor allows you to quickly change fonts, colors, and more for your emails, and it also allows you to add content that you want to see in every email.

Select the footer area of your template

In the footer of your template you can type in text, add images, and more! For this example, we'll just be typing in some text.

To start adding content, just click near the unsubscribe link at the bottom of your template.

Add in your signature

Now that you've selected the footer area of your template, you can add in text and images.

For this example, we've added a simple sign off but you can add social links, an image of yourself, or whatever you like.

Adding Social Links

Here are the steps to add social links to the end of your emails in the Email Template editor:

  1. Click the "+" that appears to the right of the line you've selected.
  2. Select "HTML Block".
  3. Paste the HTML for social links and icons provided below.

<div class="social-links">
<a href="http://www.facebook.com/"><img src="http://convertkit.com/images/social-icons/facebook.png" alt="Facebook" width="48" style="text-decoration: none; width: 48px; display:inline-block;"></a>
<a href="https://twitter.com/"><img src="http://convertkit.com/images/social-icons/twitter.png" alt="Twitter" width="48" style="text-decoration: none; width: 48px; display:inline-block;"></a>
<a href="https://instagram.com/"><img src="http://convertkit.com/images/social-icons/instagram.png" alt="Instagram" width="48" style="text-decoration: none; width: 48px; display:inline-block;"></a>
<a href="https://www.pinterest.com/"><img src="http://convertkit.com/images/social-icons/pinterest.png" alt="Pinterest" width="48" style="text-decoration: none; width: 48px; display:inline-block;"></a>
<a href="https://plus.google.com/"><img src="http://convertkit.com/images/social-icons/google-plus.png" alt="Google Plus" width="48" style="text-decoration: none; width: 48px;display:inline-block;"></a>
<a href="http://youtube.com"><img src="http://convertkit.com/images/social-icons/youtube_alt.png" alt="YouTube" width="48" style="text-decoration: none; width: 48px;display:inline-block;"></a>
<a href="http://convertkit.com"><img src="http://convertkit.com/images/social-icons/website.png" alt="Website" width="48" style="text-decoration: none; width: 48px; display:inline-block;"></a>
</div>


Follow these steps to customize it:

  1. Update the links to point to your profiles (e.g. change twitter.com to twitter.com/username).
  2. Remove any links that aren't relevant (like Google Plus)
  3. If you want to use your own icon images, change the image path inside the quotes after src=”...” to your own icon image.

Adding a profile picture

Near your signature, click the "+" menu again and select "image"

After selecting the image you want to use, click on it to change the size by clicking the image and changing the "Width" value.

As an added bonus, if your image is square you can use the "Border Radius" option to make your image a circle!
