You can link a word or phrase to a website, email address, document you're storing in your document library, survey or SurveyMonkey survey.
You can link to an email address within your mailing, which will open up an email that's pre-filled and ready to be sent to you. An example might be an "email us" link, included in the body of your mailing, which needs to be routed to a specific email address within your organization.
You can also add an email link using the button block by adding mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org in the URL field, like this. To pre-populate the subject line, you just need to add a few more characters, like this (mailto:email@example.com?subject=subjectline).
Keep in mind that clicks on mailto links are not tracked in your mailing response. When linking to a website, that click navigates from your email to Emma's tracking redirect and then to the link's final destination. That tracking redirect is what let's Emma know someone clicked the link. Because mailto links simply open in a new window of the desktop's designated email client, they have no final destination and no tracking redirect.
You can link to a phone number in your mailing, which will make the number a click-to-call link when your mailing is opened on a mobile device. You'll simply a populate the URL field for the link or button with tel:5555555555, like this:
You can create anchor links in your mailing -- also called bookmarks or jump links -- which, when clicked, jump the reader down to an item somewhere else in the same email. This is particularly helpful in creating newsletter-style headlines at the top that link down to longer paragraphs or stories below. There are two steps to this process: inserting the anchor and then creating the link. First, you'll need to insert an anchor in the body of your mailing to where you want to jump the reader down. To insert an anchor:
The second part of the anchor process is to create the link. To create the link:
Keep in mind that the anchors will not function properly in Preview. However, you can send yourself a test (we always suggest sending yourself a test!) to click the link to make sure you're achieving the desired effect.
You'll see this option only if you've already added a document to your document library. We don't allow you to include attachments with your mailings because so many servers block emails with attachments on entry. The potential for viruses is great, and often too great for server administrators to let them through. Instead, you have a document library on the main Campaigns page that allows you to easily post your files to our server and link your recipients right to them.
Using angled brackets in your link name can cause an error on send because those are a common character used in HTML for email. If you'd like to call attention to your link using brackets, like READ MORE >>, it's a good idea to use them in the body of the email but not in the link name. Or, you can place your link in a button to create a clear call to action!
Note: Surveys are a deprecated feature that may not be available in your account if you activated after 2/5/16 or have not previously created a survey.
You'll see this option only if you've already published a survey in your account.
Survey results will be stored in your SurveyMonkey account, and those responses will be anonymous. If you use our built-in survey tool, however, you can view responses by email recipient.
You can also link to your surveys quickly and easily using the SurveyMonkey block in the editor! Simply drag the block into your mailing and select your survey from the dropdown menu.

You can link text or images to these "special" URLs by adding the following code (which is not trackable in Response) into the URL field:
You can link to a previous mailing you've sent in your account: Simply copy the URL for the webview at the top-right of the mailing's response overview, and create a link like you would for any webpage.
