If you create content on social media and other platforms (like Patreon or Etsy), you may want to send your subscribers to those pages from your emails. Luckily with our links feature, adding links to your broadcasts and sequences has never been easier!
Note: This feature is only available in the new email editor.
How to set up links
Start by clicking anywhere in 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 ‘Links’ option, and select it with your cursor. After clicking on ‘Links’, the links block will show up in the body of your email.
Now you're ready to customize your links.
Adding Your Links
To add a link to your platform of choice, click on the ‘Add link’ button and enter your URL.
Note: Be sure to add the URL (e.g. https://instagram.com/convertkit), rather than your handle (e.g. @convertkit).
Customizing Individual Links
Once you’ve added your link URL, you’ll be able to customize the text, icon, and URL from the right hand sidebar. You’ll also be able to remove an individual link if you no longer want to use it.
To adjust the order of your links, you can drag and drop them from the right hand sidebar.
Customizing Link Styles
To edit the appearance of all links, click on the settings button.
From here, you’ll be able to change the appearance of your links (background color, font size, icon color, border style, etc). You can also choose whether you want to use icons or not with the ‘Show icons’ toggle.
If you want to remove the entire block of icons, simply click the ‘Remove links’ button from the block’s settings.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will it be possible to upload custom 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.
