Insert a mirror link and unsubscribe link in your campaigns

In this article, we will explain how to insert a mirror link and an unsubscribe link in your email campaigns.

What is a mirror link?

The mirror link is a link that recipients can click if they have trouble viewing your email in their inbox and want to open your email as a web page. Having a mirror link in your campaigns is not mandatory.

What is an unsubscribe link?

The unsubscribe link is a link that recipients can click to open your Sendinblue unsubscribe page and stop receiving your emails. Having an unsubscribe link in your campaigns is mandatory as it is essential to your contacts and for the proper functioning of your campaigns.

💡 Good to know
If you delete the unsubscribe link from your email campaign, Sendinblue will add it back automatically during sending.
