An Anchor link allows you to skip to a specific location on a web page. This can be very useful if you want to anchor a CTA button to a video at the bottom of a page or to send your site visitor directly to an optin section. Follow this guide to learn how to create an anchor.
Let's start by creating a new landing page.
- Click the Landing Pages tab from your Admin Dashboard
- Create a new landing page, or edit an existing page.
In the next step, we will add an anchor to a section within the page.
- To add the anchor, we will need to apply the following tag to some of the text in that section. If you are adding an anchor to a body text, you will need to click the <> button to add the anchor to the source code.
- For this example we will add the anchor to a heading section.
<div id='anchor'> Your Anchored Text Here </div>
Note: You can use any value as the id for the anchor. Also, try using quotes ("anchor") around your anchor tag if the apostrophes ('anchor') aren't linking to your anchor.
- Now let's add the anchor to a section
Once the anchor has been added to a section, the next step is to add the Anchor URL to the CTA button.
Next, we will need the URL for the landing page.
- Go back to the landing pages tab, then click edit details in the landing page options on the right.
- Click "Copy" for the landing page URL
- Now paste the URL in the CTA button settings
- The last step is to add the anchor id (#video) to the end of the landing page URL.
If everything was done correctly, you will be able to click the call to action button to skip down to the anchored section.
