The social share icons allow your email subscribers to link to your email from their Facebook or Twitter pages. It lets their social network friends and followers take a look at your email, and get to know your business - think of it as a option for digital word-of-mouth.
To add these icons to your email look for Social Share in the Content Blocks to the left of your email:
Mouse over the Social Share option and then drag it where you need it in your email. You'll probably want it to be pretty obvious in your email, at or near the top most likely. If you change your mind you can move them to any spot you like, just grab the block with your mouse and drag it where you want it to go. Since these buttons allow your readers to share your email on their networks, you don't need to link anything up, they're good to go!
Follow Us social icons
You can also add your own social networks to your email so your readers can follow your company on social media. Mouse over the Follow Us option and drag it where you want it. You'll want these icons to be pretty easy to find because you want your readers to find you!
Once you've added this block click on it and then select edit from the menu. You can add social icons for these networks by clicking the plus icon:
You can add as many or as few as you have, then next to each icon you'll need to add the URL for your page. This is really important, if you don't add your URL your button won't work. To find the url, go to your page and copy the URL you see in your browser. For example, the url for our Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/VerticalResponse. Once you've added all the urls, click save at the bottom right.
Not a social networker? A few templates have follow icons in them but you can remove them from your email. Click the content block with the icons, then click Delete from the menu. We'll double check that you really want to delete it, and then we'll take it out.
