Add an Outside Anchor Link to an Email

Do you have a hyperlink you’d like to add to your email that has an anchor on it? Meaning the link will take them partially down the page of a website.

Tracking these types of links is a little different, so you’ll need to put the HTML in the Email Template directly.

The HTML should be in this format:

external-anchor-html

Where the bolded text is text you’ll need to change.

Web Address: Place everything before the anchor tag here. The anchor tag is the # and whatever is after that.

Dynamic Email Address: Contact is bolded because it can be the contact, lead, or account.

Anchor Tag: Change this to the name of your anchor.

Click Here: This is the text they’ll see as the link.

To place this follow these steps depending on the Editor Type you’re using:

Drag and Drop: open the link manager and insert all of the link text between the quotation marks in the above example
${Gears.track(http://www.clickdimensions.com?_cldee=${Recipient.contact.emailaddress1[0]!}
${Recipient.lead.emailaddress1[0]!}#AnchorTag)}

Free Style: Access the template Source view and paste in the entirety of the link text where you want the link to occur in your template, or open the link manager and insert all of the link text between the quotation marks in the example
${Gears.track(http://www.clickdimensions.com?_cldee=${Recipient.contact.emailaddress1[0]!}
${Recipient.lead.emailaddress1[0]!}#AnchorTag)}

Block: Right click in the block, choose Add Content, and choose an HTML style block, then click on the HTML tab at the bottom left and type it there.

Custom HTML: Type it where you want the link.
