CTA button on masthead image

Hi guys,

I really need to get a CTA button on our masthead image but i cant seem to get the html code right. It keeps popping below it in another table or on the right side.

This is actually for one of our email template where we need 2 CTA buttons. One on top and at the bottom.

This is the screenshot of how i am hoping to get to: Red line box is the placement i need the same orange CTA button to be at on the image.

This is the code for the masthead;

<!-- MASTHEAD -->

          <tr>

              <td align="center" valign="top" bgcolor="#666666">

                <div class="mktoImg" id="mastheadImg" mktoName="Masthead Image" mktoImgSrc="https:/soloarticle_sample.jpg" mktoImgLink="https:/" mktoImgWidth="640" mktoImgHeight="240">

                  <a style="border: none; outline: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; display: block;"><img style="margin:0; padding:0; border:none; display:block;" border="0" alt=""></a>

       

                </div>

              

              </td>

    

            </tr>

            <!-- /MASTHEAD -->

I initially put this inside the above:

<div class="mktoText" id="CTA-Text1" mktoname="Call To Action Text1" target="_blank" style="color: #ffffff; font-size:14px;font-family:Calibri,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;width:100%; display:inline-block; border-bottom: none; text-transform: uppercase; cursor: pointer;">

<p><a href="#" target="_blank" style="text-decoration: none; color: #ffffff;">Contact Me</a></p>

</div>

As you can see, I am really not good with html.

Thanks in advance!

Re: CTA button on masthead image

Hey Sanford,

I'm not sure if i am able to do that since its actually for a email template? Sorry, i'm super new at this. Is it possible to add a button to the masthead image as a CTA?

Thanks,

Amelia

Re: CTA button on masthead image

Hi Amelia Low​,

I think you need to make the image a background image so that you can have the button sitting inside the td as content.

You could try something like this.

<td style="background-image:url(../uploadimages/yourimage.jpg);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-size:640px 240px; width:640px; height:240px;" width="640" height="240">

<div class="mktoText" id="CTA-Text1" mktoname="Call To Action Text1" target="_blank" style="color: #ffffff; font-size:14px;font-family:Calibri,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;width:100%; display:inline-block; border-bottom: none; text-transform:uppercase; cursor: pointer;">

<p><a href="#" target="_blank" style="text-decoration: none; color: #ffffff;">Contact Me</a></p>

</div>

</td>

I have an email coded up exactly as you want but its on my other machine.  I will post it later once I get home from the office.

Thanks,

Gerard

Hi Amelia Low​,

The code below will produce the banner with CTA inside like the image I have included.

Re: CTA button on masthead image

Hey Gerald,

can you help me out here, how do I move the button up but not exactly at the center of the image?

I used your codes and did mine this way, it works but the button is sitting at the bottom of the image. The design of our masthead is curved, with a grey base. But seems like my button is stretching the grey area.

Capture.JPG

This is my code-

<!-- MASTHEAD -->

          <tr>

              <td align="center" valign="top" bgcolor="#666666">

     <div class="mktoImg" id="mastheadImg" mktoName="Masthead Image" mktoImgSrc="https://global..com/rs/370-TGX-095/images/Debunking Asset Lifecycle Myths guide_soloFeature.jpg" mktoImgLink="https://.com" mktoImgWidth="640" mktoImgHeight="240">

    

  <!-- TOP CTA -->

    <tr>

     <td class="cta" style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-table-lspace: 0pt; mso-table-rspace: 0pt; word-break: break-word; -webkit-hyphens: none; -moz-hyphens: none; hyphens: none; text-align: center; border-collapse: collapse;" align="middle">

  <center>

     <table style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-table-lspace: 0pt; mso-table-rspace: 0pt; border-spacing: 0; border-collapse: collapse; margin-top:0; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom:0; margin-left: auto;" align="center" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

  <tbody>

   <tr>

    <td style="-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; mso-table-rspace: 0pt; word-break: break-word; -webkit-hyphens: none; -moz-hyphens: none; hyphens: none; mso-table-lspace: 0pt; -webkit-border-radius: 5px; -moz-border-radius: 5px; border-radius: 5px; -moz-background-clip: padding; -webkit-background-clip: padding-box; background-clip: padding-box; text-align: center; border-collapse: collapse;" align="center" bgcolor="#f26925">

      </td>

     </tr>

    </tbody>

   </table>

  </center>

   </td>

    </tr>

 

<!-- /TOP CTA -->

   <a style="border: none; outline: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; display: block;"><img style="margin:0; padding:0; border:none; display:block;" border="0" alt=""></a>

Appreciate it!
