4 ABOUT THE CTA BUTTONSWe know that creating calls-to-action (CTAs) can be difficult with limited tools. Even more difficult is the ability to track the success of those CTAs. We’re here to help. Here you’ll find a set of 27 customizable CTA designs that you can use on any digital asset – landing page, blog post, social media updates, you name it. The best part? You can then upload your customized CTAs into the HubSpot CTA builder for free to start collecting performance metrics. Yep, you’ll know how many people viewed, and even better, how many people clicked on your call-to-action! Beauty and data – what could be better?
6 GRABBING YOUR COLOR HEX CODES As much as we'd love to, we can't create CTAs that match the skin of every website -- unless, of course, your website just happens to match the colors you find in here! But if you're like most marketers (including us), you can customize the colors by getting the HEX code of the main colors of your website, and inputting it into PowerPoint. A hex code is a 6-character alpha-numerical code that represents a color. To grab the HEX codes for your website or blog, simply take a screenshot of your website or blog, and then head over to Once there, upload that screenshot by clicking the “Upload your image” button. Then select any point of the uploaded picture, and immediately see its corresponding HEX code on the right!
7 PUTTING YOUR HEX CODES IN POWERPOINT Once the corresponding HEX code appears, you’ll need to transfer that information to PowerPoint. Go to Design Colors Create New Theme Colors. From there you’ll be taken to a place that allows you to change the colors in your color palate to match your brand.
8 PUTTING YOUR HEX CODES IN POWERPOINT Now, click any “Accent” option, and within the dropdown options select “More Colors…”From there, make sure you’re on the “Custom” tab. You’ll see the option to input a number for “Red,” “Green,” and “Blue.” These are your RGB colors that appear in the HEX code generated on imagecolorpicker.com.Just add those generated numbers here. Click “OK” and voila! That color is now in your palate. Keep going down the accents until you have all the colors you need.
9 2 QUICK TIPS FOR CUSTOMIZING CTAs IN POWERPOINT Double clicking on any image, textbox, or shape will open up various options for you to change the appearance of the respective object -- whether that be shading, colors, fills, outline, or styles. Be open to playing around, and see what you discover!When inserting images for your CTA, you might find the image you selected has a white background, while your CTA does not. To fix this, either give the image a border, or use the transparent tool in your toolbar. Simply click “Transparent Color,” and then click the background of your image.
