Can you add social share buttons to an email?

Is there a way for a non-programmer to add a social share button to an email? This was a built-in function of every other email platform I have used, but is completely missing from HubSpot. I have tried all of the work-around suggestions I found online, and even tried ChatGPT to create some code, but nothing works. HubSpot does not allow most code and I can't make heads or tails of it.

Those provide links to your social pages, but they don't allow you to share the email to your own social page.

 

Each email has a URL for an online version, we're looking for a button that would allow you to share that URL to your own social media

That makes sense, @pinchvalve. HubSpot provides social sharing options with blog posts, but I'm not aware if they provide social sharing modules for emails. You could consider making them blog posts instead of emails and email the blogs immediately upon publishing.

 

The other more manual way would be to use a social sharing link generator. Then, you could leverage the icons previously mentioned, but instead of linking to your social profile, it would be linked to the social share link you manually created.

Hi @pinchvalve, are these social icons what you're after? You have the ability to customize the URL and add even a custom icon.
