where can i find a button image to put into an email? one with editable text?

H, i want to put a button in an email that says something like: "View recording"  or "register now" or something like that.  i see the images in the form section, but i can't figure out how to find a button image to put into an email.  thanks

Take a look at the link below.  Yes, it's ".cm" not ".com"

http://buttons.cm/

You fill in the details and it provides the code.

Hi Peri,

These buttons need to be created for you, and uploaded into the Design Studio to use in emails.  You can also, in a program within Marketing Activities, choose New > Import Program > SOC Button Library (I have never used this, but if it's called Button Library, then it must have buttons, right?).  Another option is to use a table and just change a few values, which adds flexibility.

If you want to use a table rather than an image, you can insert this HTML into the HTML email editor where you want the button to be, and change any values that you need to.  (These values would be the link, button text, pixel width, and color.  But also potentially table class, font, font size, padding, alignment...)

<table class="m-pb10" style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 20px; overflow: hidden;" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="200">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td style="padding-top: 13px; padding-bottom: 13px; background: #ee5315; text-align: center;"><a style="border: 0; color: #fff; text-decoration: none;" href="http://www.google.com">Click Button</a></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

And then how do i get the code into my email. (Apologies, i am rather new to Marketo.  i used Act-On in my last job, and this sort of thing was WAY easier!!!.  they had a lovely wysisyg editor which included things like a "button" button that you could just drag from the tool bar and drip into whatever i was creating.)

Further, both these answers are great.  what is the protocol for this situation?  Is it better to just pick one "best answer" or not pick between the two of you.  I appreciate both of you taking the time to respond!

Thanks

Hi Peri,

To insert HTML into your email, go into the email editor and click the little blue button at the top that says HTML.  To insert an image, choose the little green-ish square that looks like a picture.

I think most people don't even choose best answers.  Just pick whichever is most helpful, or don't, or like them both.  Totally up to you - it's just for achivement points on profiles. 🙂
