You can upload your PDF to the files tool then add it directly to your button CTA:
If you're using embedded button CTAs on a WordPress site and no CTA data is appearing in HubSpot, compare the source code of your site with the embed code to make sure that the code was not altered by Wordpress.
If the code has been significantly altered, try re-embedding the button CTA. XHTML Wordpress themes will add
If WordPress is altering the embed code, you could use a third-party plugin such as Insert HTML Snippet or Shortcoder to add the button CTA to the page/post in the form of a shortcode, which will preserve the script tags.
Button CTA clicks are tracked by directing visitors to an initial URL, which associates the click with the button CTA, before redirecting them to the final page. This initial URL is the click tracking URL.
On HubSpot-hosted pages, this click tracking domain is tied to the URL of the page where the button CTA is embedded. When a button CTA is placed on an external page:
Sometimes the data in the button CTA tool doesn't match up with the view/click data from the landing pages tool. There are a few reasons why this might occur:
Yes, you can use an anchor ID in the URL of a button CTA:
Please note: when using an anchor ID in the URL of a CTA, the page will reload before scrolling to the anchor. This is because CTA click tracking requires the page to load and redirect. If you would rather the page not reload, use an anchor link instead.
After clicking a button CTA, the URL in the address bar will look much longer due to extra tracking parameters that HubSpot appends to the original landing page URL. These parameters are necessary to register views, submissions, and clicks for your CTA.
These tracking parameters include the following:
The __hssc, __hstc, and __hsfp parameters are used for cookie tracking while the hsCtaTracking parameter is specific to CTA tracking. Learn more about how each of these tracking parameters work.
In the Design step of button CTA tool, users have two options when editing the size of a specific button CTA. You can opt to size the button automatically by selecting the Fit to text checkbox or you can enter a custom button width and button height under Enter your own dimensions.
If you enter your own button dimensions and the text area of your CTA exceeds the width or height you entered, the CTA background won’t adjust to fit the text. You can avoid this by reducing the size of the text on the CTA or by selecting Fit to text instead.
While you can create buttons outside of HubSpot's button CTA tool, it is not recommended. The advantages of using HubSpot's CTA tool include access to analytics data, click data, form submissions data, A/B testing (Marketing Hub Professional and Enterprise only), and an embed code that keeps your existing CTAs up to date.
Yes, there is no limit to the number of button CTAs that can be used on a page.
This is caused by an additional anchor tag surrounding the button CTA token within the source code. In order to resolve this issue, you will need to remove the anchor tag surrounding the button CTA, leaving only the button CTA token.
