How to Create a Call Us Button with SmallBiz Theme

Images that are click to call | WordPressI have been working with a client who wants to make it super easy for people to call him. To that end, I wanted to create a Click to Call Button that we could place on pages and in widgets that would allow clients to easily click to call from their smart phone and look good if you are visiting the site from your desktop or tablet device.

The process is easy with the SmallBiz Theme for WordPress.

To make a phone number a link, toggle from Visual to Text mode and use this code:

<a href=”tel:15555555555″>1-555-555-5555</a>

Or,

  • type out the phone number (ie 555-555-555)
  • Highlight the number
  • Click the link icon
  • Replace http: with tel:
  • Type 1555555555 in the url box.  Do not use – or . or ()

Or if you would like to make an image a Click to Call Button, create an image and wrap this code around the file:

<img src=”/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Photo.png” alt=”1-555-555-555″ width=”180″ height=”45″ />

How to Create a Click to Call Button

To create a button, you can use any graphics program you are familiar with; Power Point actually works just fine for simple graphics. For the button above I used Da Button Factory, which allows you to easily create buttons with different colors, fonts, shading, etc. It is free to use (you don’t even have to give an email address!)

Creating buttons is one step that you can take to make getting in touch with you just a little bit easier from a mobile device.
