How to style buttons in wp

Do you want to add more attention-grabbing WordPress buttons to your website?

Buttons are a great way of presenting raw links to your users in an appealing and captivating manner. In marketing, these buttons are typically referred to as calls-to-action (CTAs), and they’re incredibly useful.

A well-designed button has the power to draw your user’s attention because they stand out from the rest of your content.

You can use them to direct your users to any transactional page like pricing pages, product pages, services pages, or any other page that helps boost your conversions and increase sales.

So if you’re looking for a way to add buttons to your website, this post is for you.

Because, in this article, we’ll show you how to add buttons to your WordPress website without any coding. But before we do, let’s understand the importance of using buttons on your website.

The Importance of Using Buttons on Your Website

By using the right WordPress buttons on your website, it’s way easier to get more conversions. This leads to:

  • Growing your email list
  • Getting more followers on social media
  • Increasing your sales

Or any other action you want your customers to take on your site.

Adding buttons to your posts and pages encourages your users to do what you want them to do. Without a button or CTA, your website lacks an optimized strategy and leaves your conversion rates up to chance.

As marketing expert Neil Patel says, a button or CTA is the “bridge between marketing and sales.” You can use buttons in WordPress to give your final CTA to your users like Buy Now, Contact Us, Download, or others.

However, it’s important that you know how to use these buttons to maximize your conversions. There are several factors that make some buttons better than others.

These include:

  • Knowing your conversion goal
  • Keeping your button text short and catchy
  • Using action words
  • Providing an incentive

But those are just a few. To become a real expert, here’s a detailed cheat sheet on how to create a perfect button for your website.

Now, let’s look at how to create powerful WordPress buttons for your website without any coding.

Step 1: Installing Beaver Builder on Your WordPress Site

There are many ways you can add buttons to your WordPress site, but today we’re going to look at one of the easiest methods by using Beaver Builder:

Step 3: Customizing Your Buttons

Once the button is added, it’s time to customize it to make it as enticing as possible to your site’s visitor. Luckily, customizing your button with Beaver Builder is easy.

Just click on the button, and a small popup window will appear on your screen with 3 different tabs.

  • General
  • Style
  • Advanced

Under the General tab, you can work on your button’s text, add an icon, work on the icon position, and add links to your button.

Then you have the Style tab where you can change the design of your button. For example, you can work on the button width, padding, button text color, text hover color, and other elements of your button’s appearance.


It also lets you work on the font, style & spacing, text shadows, and more. Apart from that, Beaver Builder gives you options for adding background color, animation effects, and borders too.

Finally, you have the Advanced tab. Here you have more advanced options like adding margins to your spacing, adding a timing setting to any animations you may use, and more.

And if you want to make your WordPress button 100% custom, you can even add HTML to have full control over your button’s design. But for that, you need your hands on some coding.

The Advanced tab also lets you import/export your button to or from another website.
