Create a call-to-action button or clickable image
If you have read the user’s guide, or have been using the program for a while, you already know how to insert a link to a web site or a pdf and you already know how to insert an image. But did you know that both of these things could be combined to create an image that is clickable? Or, if you prefer, a clickable button? This page will teach you how to do it.
Step1: Find the perfect button
Unless you created your own button with an imaging program, simply go on the internet (search engines are the quickest), look for the perfect button image and download it to your computer.
Step2: Creating the button
1-Go to Content > Create content or Content > Create message
2-Give it a name
3-In the text editor of your choice, or both if you think about addressing both language
A) Click on Insert/Edit image
B) Click on the folder icon
C) Browse your computer to find the image you want to add and upload it.
D) Once the image is uploaded, you might need to fx the size.
E) Once the image is the perfect size for you, Click on it so it turns blue
F) With the image being blue, click on the Insert/Edit link button
G) Enter the Url address to the desired web page or click on the folder to search for your PDF fle.
H) Enter a title if you want. We suggest the name of the pdf file or the name of the website. (Campaign term and content are not mandatory). I also suggest to change the target to new window to get the full effect of your button. Click ok
I) When you return to the text editor, you may think that nothing is changed because nothing else appeared. Just hover your cursor over the image to see the title of your link appear. Also, if you click on the content preview button, you will notice that your image is now clickable.
J) Repeat all the steps in the french content text editor if you plan on addressing french speaking subscribers.
K) Click Save
Congratulations! You now have a clickable button that you can add to all your emails if you want.
