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 (new) email editor, and with no code required!
Let's see how it works.
Setting up a new icon 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 ‘Icons’ option, and select it. After clicking on the icons option, the icons block will show up in the body of your email!
Customizing Your Icons
Once you've added an icon to your email, you might want to customize how it looks.
We got you. 👌🏽
To edit the appearance of the icons, first click on the settings button.
From the right sidebar, you’ll be able to choose your icon style (square, circle, or icon only), icon color, and icon alignment (left, center, right).
Adding Your Links
Once you've added your platform options, you'll want to add links to each icon. To do this, simply click on any one icon that you've added.
On the right hand side, you can add the links to your profiles.
👉🏾 NOTE: Be sure to add the URL (e.g. https://instagram.com/convertkit), rather than your handle (e.g. @convertkit).
To add more icons, click on the (+) sign to the right of the icon block in the email editor.
To choose a different platform, simply click on the dropdown menu from the icon field. You’ll also be able to remove an individual icon from here!
If you want to remove the entire block of icons, you can do that too. Click the ‘Remove icons’ button in the right hand sidebar to change those as you prefer.
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 use a platform that doesn’t currently have an icon.
Why don’t I see this option in my emails?
The social icons feature is only available in our new email editor. If you’re using the legacy editor, you will want to switch to the new email editor first.
