1. Choose Right Colors for Your Button

Of course, you can pick whatever colors you want. It’s up to you to choose. But did you know that large enterprises carry out extensive researches to find shades that convert the best? People respond to different colors and shades differently, and some colors get more clicks than others. Google, for example, tested 50 different shades of blue for its call to action button:

Below you can see Amazon’s call to action button. You can bet that they, too, have tested different colors and shades to find out which one converts the best.

Of course, it depends on the website’s overall design, but if these companies have already done their research, you may trust them and use the same colors that they do. Only… How do you know what colors they use?

Here’s a quick tip on how to find out.

2. Pick the Color Codes of Your Favorite Button

2.1. What do you need?

2.1.1. An image editor. If you don’t have it yet, I recommend downloading Paint.NET. It’s a simple, fast, and quite a powerful image editor.

Snipping tool Windows 82.1.2. A snipping tool. The Print Screen button on your keyboard does the job too, but a snipping tool is handier. If you don’t have it already, download it. Just google “download snipping tool,” and you find one for your operating system. It’s a convenient tool to capture a portion of your screen and save it as an image. I use it extensively.

2.2. Pick the Color Codes

On the computer, there are tens of millions of colors and shades. It’s not enough to tell you that I want to use yellow or red or blue. There are tons of very similar shades of red, yellow, and blue. Each shade has a unique code to differentiate them, called a hex code, which starts with the #-sign. #0000000 is black, and #FFFFFF is white. All other colors are between these two values.

For this example, let’s use Amazon’s call to action button. Go to and pick a random product. Once you have chosen it, Amazon shows you its yellow Call to Action button “Add to Cart” on the window’s right side. Using your snippet tool, takes a snapshot of it and save it to your hard drive (I prefer .png file format).

1. Let’s say you want to make your Call to Action button with the same colors that Amazon uses. Open the image file in the Paint.NET image editor. You see a toolbar, color bar, and your image. Click the “More” button in the Color bar to see its advanced options.

Advanced options reveal RGB values (red, green, and blue) and Hexacode (Hex field) of the chosen color. Right now, it shows the code of black: #000000 (it does not show the # sign, but usually hex code is written with the # sign). This Hex field is the place where you get the codes that you need. color settings

2. Go to the main menu of Paint.NET and zoom in on the image so that it’s easier to pick the colors. You need three colors: 1 for lighter yellow (upper part of the button), darker yellow (lower part of the button), and the border color. zoom in the image

3. From the Paint.NET toolbar, choose a Color Picker tool. How does this device work? The image you click on picks the color of that pixel, its RGB values, and Hexacode. Try it out. Click somewhere on the image, and you see the results in the Colors bar.

4. Now, move the tool to the lower part of the button and pick the color. You see that the Primary color in the Color bar changes into yellow, and Hexacode changes too. Because the button uses a gradient style, moving smoothly from darker to lighter shades, your code might differ from mine. But the color is the same. In my case, you see, the hexacode of the darker yellow is F0C14D. Write your code down. color picker tool

5. Now take the tool and pick a light yellow color, which is on the upper part of the button. Hex code changes again, and you want to write it down. In my case, it is F7DEA0.

6. Use the tool again to pick the color of the border. In my case, it is AA8326. Write your hex code down. color picker border color

Now you have three shades and three hex codes that you need to make your button:

  • light yellow: #F7DEA0
  • dark yellow: #F0C14D
  • Border: #AA8326
