Button Color and Corners
Button Background Color
Color is the probably the most important feature in terms of making your floating button stand out and enticing website visitors to click on it. You can change your button color by choosing one of the default colors or by pasting your own color hex code in the field below.
For the background of your button, you should choose a color that:
- Is vibrant enough to stand out from the rest of your website
- Matches your branding and color scheme
- Has enough contrast with the button text for easy reading
Additionally, you should choose a color that makes it clear that this is an interactive, clickable button—not just a line of text or a static rectangle. One way to do this is to match your new button to your website's existing color scheme for links and buttons. For instance, if you use bright blue for all of your buttons, then stick with the same bright blue for this button.
Not sure which exact color your current buttons or links are? Use a color picker browser extension to identify and copy the exact hex code. Then paste that hex code into the PSAI editor.
In addition to the button color, you can adjust the corners of your button—from sharp and square to gentle and rounded—using the "Rounded Corners" field.
A size of 0px is perfectly angular, while a size of 10px is quite rounded. See the difference between these two extremes below.
Text Color, Size, and Style
The most important features of your button are clarity and legibility. While the right background color will make it clear to website visitors that "yes, this a button," the text styling will ensure that your website visitors can read the button quickly.
The styling of your button text can be edited using the fields noted below.
Can't decide which color to use for your button text? White is always a great choice, as it's easy to read and matches any website design. Just be sure the button's background color is dark enough against white text.
The look of your button is important, but so are the words on it! You can edit your button copy by clicking and typing directly into the button preview.
To grab the most attention, we recommend using a short, clear phrase with a strong action word. Here are some good examples to try out:
- Request a Virtual Quote
- Get a Free Quote Now
- Schedule a Free Estimate
- Receive an INSTANT Weather Report
- Download a Free Report Now
- Sign up for Your FREE Consultation
- Learn More About Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
- Submit a Warranty Claim
You can make certain words stand out by using all caps, or you can make the entire button more attention-grabbing by using all caps for the entire phrase.
You can choose to place your floating button on the bottom right or bottom left side in the "Screen Position" field.
If you're using a floating chat widget as well, then we recommend placing your floating chat on the bottom right and your other floating CTA on the left.
Of course, your Start Button is just the start! You can fully customize each Form Panel that follows based on the specific call-to-action you're using.
