A simple button style CTA without personalization will have the least impact on your page performance.
The more complex your CTA is configured (e.g. personalization by device type) or if you're using images in your CTAs or if your page has multiple CTAs, you could see an increase in page speed due to the extra code that has to load.
Make sure your CTA images are optimized.
To reduce image file sizes without losing quality, use TinyPNG to compress your images (JPG, PNG, WebP).
Only use CTAs where you are actively tracking conversion paths, otherwise, we recommend using Buttons that can be styled to match CTAs.
A CTA is an object you can create in HubSpot that tracks user data associated with views and clicks, can be targeted by audience, and personalized to enhance the UX.
A Button is a clickable link on the page styled to look like a button, which can have the same appearance as a CTA without the additional code and features/capabilities
Here are Examples of CTAs compiled by HubSpot.
When creating CTAs for POWER theme, the styles will be applied automatically by the theme or module settings, so you won't need to create the style in the CTA Editor.
