Below, is an example of all the areas that you can customize such as title, color, background image (optional), link URL and alignment.
This CTA, in particular, will look like this:
Size: A bigger CTA button or banner will stand out more, but don't go overboard. Having too large of a CTA can risk getting lost due to banner blindness.
Color: Generally speaking, green and orange buttons are reported to perform best. Ultimately it will depend on your site design, as contrasting colors work best to make striking buttons that stand out. You wouldn’t want a green CTA button on a green background.
Contrast: An easy rule-of-thumb to make your CTA stand out is to create contrast with the surrounding content. Vibrant colors are great for creating contrast and drawing attention. When you're deciding on which color to use, a good way to start is by looking at the most common colors used on your website or landing page design and pick the opposite to create contrast.
Image: If you use an image or custom design in your CTA, it should always be high-quality and relevant to the offer. Consider featuring an image of what you're offering or perhaps an image of someone enjoying it
