Connect with your audience across multiple platforms by adding icons to your broadcast and sequence emails.

Want to direct your subscribers to your social media and other platforms from within your emails? You can do this easily from within the email editor, and with no code required!

Let's see how it works.

Setting up new social media icons in your email

From within your account, select to create a new sequence email or broadcast.

From here, simply click anywhere inside the body of your email. You’ll see the (+) sign pop up on the left-hand side of the email editor.

Scroll down until you see the Social Icons option, and select it. When you've done so, the social icons block will show up in the body of your email!

Click the new + button that has appeared to add a first social media icon to your email.

Customizing your icon's platform icon and link

Click your social media icon. When you do so, the right sidebar will display settings for customizing the icon's platform icon and URL.

👉🏾 NOTE: Be sure to add the URL (e.g. https://instagram.com/convertkit), rather than your handle (e.g. @convertkit).

Customizing the look of your icons

Click any of your social media icons to load the Email > Social Icons > Icons settings for it in the right sidebar.

After that, click the Social Icons tab in the right sidebar to display the icon customization options.

You’ll be able to choose your icon style (square, circle, or icon only), icon color, and icon alignment (left, center, right).

Adding/removing icons

To add more icons, click on the (+) sign to the right of the icon block in the email editor.

To remove an individual icon, click the one you want to remove, followed by the Remove icon button in the right sidebar.

If you want to remove the entire block of icons, you can do that too. Click the Social Icons tab in the right sidebar, followed by the Remove icons button.

Frequently asked questions

Will it be possible to upload custom social icons?

Not yet, but we do provide an “External link” icon in case you want to link to a platform that doesn’t currently have an icon.
