Getting started

To share/embed an action that you've already created, locate that button under My Buttons, then click the "More options" button for quick access:

Or click View Button, then scroll past the preview to find those same options:

๐Ÿ“Œ Note: If you're viewing the dashboard on a small screen, these buttons will be hidden, just tap the button card itself to view these options.

Embed onto a NationBuilder page

The easiest way to share an ActionButton is on your NationBuilder page. Simply navigate to the ActionButton page and click "Copy button ID" on the button you'd like to embed.

Then, head to the Content tab of a NationBuilder page on which you'd like to display your button, click the ActionButton logo in the hotbar, then paste your button ID.

Copy/paste a link to your button

Use this button to copy the direct link to your button, and manually paste it into email blasts, text messages, or anywhere else you want.

Your button's URL points to your button's dedicated landing page, which will look something like this:

You can also click the email icon to jump right into a 1:1 email draft, pre-populated with your button link and some placeholder text.

Embed your button

You can embed your button on a page with an iFrame. With these, your button will blend seamlessly into your content, empowering your audience to take action without ever leaving the page.

Most sites support iFrame embeds. Just copy the iFrame code from below the Share Your Button options. Then paste the code into the code editor or template of your site wherever youโ€™d like the button to appear.

Sharing buttons on social

To share your button on social media, simply click the corresponding Share icon:

After you publish the post, the link preview will automatically include a screenshot of your own button, with the appropriate dimensions for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. While the button image is static, it acts as a compelling click-through lure.

๐Ÿ’ก Instagram Pro-tip: You can add a button link to your Stories using the Link sticker feature. Combined with a personal call-to-action, this creates a seamless engagement path for your followers.
