You can upload your PDF to the files tool then add it directly to your CTA:
If you're using embedded 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 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 CTA to the page/post in the form of a shortcode, which will preserve the script tags.
CTA clicks are tracked by directing visitors to an initial URL which associates the click to the 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 CTA is embedded. When a CTA is placed on an external page:

In the Design step of CTA tool, users have two options when editing the size of a specific 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.
