The Social Follow and how you can use it to design your newsletter

A Social Follow is a type of element that you can use inside our platform's Campaign Editor in order to have your recipients follow your social media accounts. It is one of the best ways to get connected with your subscribers since they can be completely enthralled with everything you do.

After you start defining your newsletter design's structure you should also begin adding elements to it. One of the available element types that you can use in your campaigns is the Social Follow.

Let's see how you can add one to your structure: 

A. Adding a Social Follow element

1. Click on the Elements button, located on the left side of your Editor page.social_follow_element_editor_1.png

B.  Connecting your Social Media Accounts

You can remove any unnecessary social media icons and connect the remaining ones to your social media accounts.
1. Click on the Social Follow element inside your design.

Its settings instantly come up on the left side of your Editor page. Further, hovering over the Social Follow element you have added will produce a toolbar that allows you to RemoveMove, or Duplicate the Social Follow Element, or reveal its settings to the left of the Editor page.
