Drag and Drop template editor: How To Add Social Profile/Follow Links? (VIDEO)

Last Updated: May 17 2020 04:23 pm UTC


The social profile links enable you to add different social media profiles that users can click on to more easily “follow” you.

To add social profile links to your email:

Open the email campaign to which you wish to add the link.

Click on Step 4: Content from the Email Campaign Wizard navigation bar

If you are using the HTML editor, place the cursor in your email content where you wish to place the links and click the Add Social Profile Link Button.

If you are using the drag and drop editor, click on the Social Profile Links Block and drag it to your content. Release the mouse where you want to place the links.

This will open up the Add Social Profiles Window:

Social media profile links — enter the link for each profile that you want to display. For example, the link to your Twitter profile is “http://www.twitter.com/{username}” where {username} is replaced by your Twitter handle. For more information about the link structure for other social media networks, visit your public profile on that network.

  • Button size—click a radio button to select the size of the icon.

  • Button style—click a radio button to select the style of button to use.

  • Text before—enter the text that will appear before all of the social sharing icons.

  • Text font family—use the drop-down menu to specify the text family.
