020: How to Use Clickable Buttons in Your ConvertKit Emails

Let's say you want to have your readers click a button in your ConvertKit emails that goes to a page on your website. This could be for really anything - link to blog post, link to a sales page, link to a video on YouTube - really any link.

Your ConvertKit emails are set up so that you can use buttons as long as you use the Modern or Classic templates or create your very own template from scratch. Plus, the buttons can be used both in your broadcast emails as well as sequences emails.

Watch the video below to see how I set them up and scroll down below in this post to grab the code that you will need to use.


Step 1: Set up Modern or Classic as your default template OR Create your own custom template from scratch if you'd like to customize how the button looks.

Step 2: Customize how your button looks in your custom template. 
You can change the colors for example or the button or the color of the text itself.

to change the button background: 
background: #ffbc42;
Change the #ffbc42 (yellow) to a color of your choice

to add a border:
border: 2px solid #A09D87;
Change the #A09D87 (grey) to a color of your choice

to increase or decrease the spacing of the text:
letter-spacing: 3px;

to increase or decrease the font-size of the text:
font-size: 15px;

Step 3: Go inside your sequence email or your broadcast email and input this piece of code where you want the button to show up.

Step 5: Change the text that you want the button to show.

Step 6: Every time you need to use the button, just use the code snippet again. 

That's it!

So, that's another little step on how you can use ConvertKit the way you want to connect with your audience!
