Hello @user723158 ,

 

First, you'll want to make sure you've setup a custom field to house that unique URL for the applicable contacts. Once you've uploaded your contact list with that information assigned to the proper field, then you can include it in an email. The most straightforward method of doing this would be using the Insert > Contact Details functionality.

 

Keep in mind, this would only include the URL as plain-text by default, it wouldn't auto-link from our side. While some email programs may auto-link the URL upon receiving, it would be wise to include a bit in the email mentioning that if the URL isn't clickable, your contacts can copy it into their address bar.

_______

You could use dynamic content for your setup. However, based on your description, to use dynamic content you'd essentially have to make a block with the coded link and image for each individual contact.

_______

Otherwise, the only other viable solution, if you know HTML coding, would be to use the custom code editor to craft your own block and contact detail insertion setups.
