5 SUPER-EASY STEPS TO ADD AN EMAIL LINK OR ICON TO YOUR POST


The power of an email address in your blog is not to be underestimated; it is the only reliable and professional means through which your readers, customers, advertisers and even the monetizing firms you partner with can contact you.

There is a great need to add an email icon to your social media icons section and to also include it in your contact page, one notable case is the application for adsense, and adsense requires that you provide an easy means through which your readers can get to you. Sending newsletters through emails is also a good way of making your visitors revisit your blog and also fosters a good relationship with them.

This tutorial will work you through these procedures with ease though we are going to encounter some codes but I promise it will be a minimal code so you need not be scared!
There is a special link for the addition of emails and email links are done much the same as links to other pages, using the <a href> tag. An email link would require the following code:
<a href="mailto:youremailaddress">Email Admin</a>

In oder to make the above code effective, you have to type it in the HTML section of your editor instead of the default compose mode. This will result in the visitor's email program opening a new email with your address already in the To: field when clicked. If you wish to have a specific subject in the email without your readers going through the procedures of inserting their own subject, you can add it to the html code using subject= tag:
<a href="mailto:email@bloggingcrib.com? subject=Adsense"> Send Email</a>
Suppose you want an email link for your visitors containing specific text written by you in the body of their message, simply add &body= and type in the body of your text. Let’s illustrate this:

<a href="mailto:email@bloggingcrib.com? body=Please send me your new post on adsense!">Send Email</a>
 You can combine all the options above and allow your visitor to send email with the address, subject and text already entered as illustrated below:
 <a href="mailto:email@bloggingcrib.com? subject=Adsense &body=Please send me your new post on adsense!">Email Admin</a> 
To add an email link to the email icon on your blog, here are the steps:
  1. download the email icon and upload it somewhere either on your blog or on sites like photobucket, pinterest flickr etc.
  2. Login to your blog and select the blog you want to add the icon to, if you have multiple blogs with blogger.
  3. On your blog’s layout, you can add a new HTML/javascript widget anywhere you like or if you already had a social section on your blog, you can click edit and also paste the code below within it.
  4.  Copy the link of your email icon and paste it where you have the your email icon’s URL herein this code <a href="mailto:email@bloggingcrib.com? subject=Adsense &body=Please send me your new post on adsense!"><img src=”your email icon’s URL here”></a>
  5. Click on save, refresh your blog and you are good to go.
