Tip of the Week – Add Social Icons to Your Emails

Linking to your various social media accounts in the emails you send is a great way to encourage subscribers to connect with you outside their inbox.

If they’re a loyal email reader, they’ll likely be interested in following you on social media too, right?

But, the thing is, dropping a basic link into your email signature isn’t a good look…

Which is why we recommend that you add social icons to your emails instead!
