Add social media buttons to email templates.

I am trying to add social media buttons to my email templates. We're using Salesforce Classic can anyone share how to do that?

Edit HTML version does not take me to the actual HTML to run the code.

(PS. Sorry I'm not sure I chose the right topic)

If you're using a template of HTML type then it should be no problem to insert images and links.

For images:

<img src="URL of your image"> --use the quotation marks

Links to social sites:

<a href="URL of your social site">Name of your social site</a>

Example:

<a href="https://twitter.com/brianwenzl">Follow me on Twitter</a>

Hi Isaac,

Please use below steps:-

1. Navigate to Marketing > Emails > New Email Template.
2. Follow the steps to create your email template.
3.  In the Building tab:
* Click into the template to open the Content Editor, and then click where you want to add the icons.
* Click the plus (+) icon (AddThis) to insert the AddThis icons in your email template.
* Click on one of the social media icons, which have been placed in the email.
4. Click the Insert/edit link button (it looks like a chain).
5. Replace the variable tag in the Link URL field with the link to the appropriate social media site for your company.
