How to Insert Anchor Links

Anchor links are a great way to jump to content in an Email at the click of a button. If you have a large block of content, anchor links allow you to display them in an engaging and easy to digest way. To implement these all you have to do is follow these steps:

1. Insert into Clickable Item

 Insert a link into the clickable item, which you want to direct to in the Email. (EG: #WEEKLYUPDATE). The links should follow this format #NAMEOFANCHORLINK so in this case, #WEEKLYUPDATE - in picture A we are using a button, in picture B we are using a link:

A.

2. Insert Link into Resulting Item

Now, we need to tell the Email where the result should be. To do this, drag an HTML content block into your Email, just above where you'd like the destination to be.

3. Paste in this code:


<a name="XXX"></a><br />

You will need to replace XXX with the name of the link or button without the #. So in this case it would be <a name="WEEKLYUPDATE"></a><br />
