How to Use Emojis in Your Emails

Emojis add an extra spark of personality to the way we communicate with our friends, family and even with leads and customers! In today’s world, marketers are embracing emojis as a way to not only liven up the inbox but to connect and engage with recipients.

Here's how to add emojis to your emails in your Sendlane account!

Adding an Emoji to Your Email

When building out campaigns within Sendlane, you can add emojis to the subject line, preheader and the content of your messages.

  1. Place your cursor where you'd like to add an emoji (either within the email Subject field, Preheader field, or a content block inside of the email editor)
  2. Open up the emoji panel by using the keyboard shortcut that works for your device

    • Keyboard Shortcut for Mac:
    • Control + Command + Space Bar


    • Keyboard Shortcut for Windows:

      Windows button + Semicolon (or Period)*   Sendlane-knowledge-base-using-emojis-in-your-emails-PC-keyboard-shortcut.jpeg

  3. Please Note

    Whether the Semicolon or the Period works with the Windows button depends on your software version. Try one combination, then the other to figure out which one works for your device.

  4. Select the emoji you'd like to use from the emoji panel 

And that's it - you'll now be able to display emojis within your email subject line, preheader and content!

Please Note

Emojis render differently across different email clients and devices, so you'll always want to test your messages before sending to be sure everything looks exactly how you want.
