Bigger is Better! –  Make your web button stand out and draw attention so it gets clicked on. Shoot for around around 225px wide and 45px high. Got multiple buttons? If you want them to “Buy Now,” more than “Learn More.” make the Buy web button bigger!  Using web buttons on mobile devices?  Try 44px x 44px.

Space Out –  Leave a few pixels of white space around your web button to draw your readers eye, plus anyone viewing your page on a mobile device can click on your button with their fingers vs. a mouse. No fat fingering here!

Pop It With Color –  Use a contrasting color compared to the background color so it’ll stand out!!
