2. Insert social media icons in email signature templates

You now need to add the social media icons to your email signature. Usually, these will appear just below your contact details. However, feel free to place them anywhere in the signature section.

If you use a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor in Outlook, Gmail or G Suite (now Google Workspace), you can simply use the Insert picture button to add your LinkedIn buttons and/or other icons.

If you’re using Office 365 (now Microsoft 365) or Exchange, use the <img /> HTML tag, pointing to the web location of the image. Also remember to include Alt text (alternative text) in case a recipient is unable to see the images when they receive your emails.

The HTML code will look something like the example below:

<img src="https://www.exclaimer.com/content/images/twitter-35x35.gif" alt="Twitter Icon" />

3. Add a hyperlink to the social media icon

Once the icons are in place, you need to add hyperlinks that take recipients directly to your social media profiles. Using a WYSIWYG editor makes this process very easy. All you need to do is:

  1. Select the social media icon
  2. Click the Add a hyperlink button in the top menu
  3. Enter the URL (hyperlink) that leads to the relevant social media channel

The hyperlink should be the profile’s full URL, e.g. https://www.facebook.com/exclaimer or https://www.twitter.com/exclaimer.

To add a link to raw HTML, do the following:

  1. Locate the image (<img />) code
  2. Insert an <a href=[URL]></a> tag to the code

The code should look similar to the example shown below:

<a href="https://www.twitter.com/exclaimer"><img src="https://www.exclaimer.com/content/images/twitter-35x35.gif" alt="twitter icon"></a>

There you have it. You’ve successfully added social media icons to an email signature. To add more profiles, simply repeat the process as many times as you wish.
