We will cover both how to change colors on the sitewide level, as well as how to change colors for a specific page on your website – Let’s get started!

Part 1 (of 2) Changing Colors Sitewide

Step 1: Navigate to Dashboard > Design > Colors:

Step 2: Select Your Desired/Chosen Colors:

  1. Play around with this tool to get a feel for the color slider!
  1. You can change the color of Links, Buttons, Navigation Bar, Site Title, and overlay Background Color for your Hero Banner.
  1. Using the two available sliders, you can change the color and the saturation of the color. You can click the “default” button to revert back to the original colors that were used when you first launched the site.

    Finally, there is a field where you can insert a hex value, if this is necessary for you! (A hex value is a six-digit combination of numbers and letters that represents a specific color value. Example: #123456)

*It’s a good idea to have your button color contrast with your Primary Color so your call to action is clear. This will subconsciously influence the people who view your site to fill out your form! If you have a 2 toned logo, It’d be beneficial to have 1 color be your Primary, and the other be the Button if they contrast enough!

Step 3: Save Edits by Clicking “Publish”!

*Keep in mind you won’t be able to see the changes take effect on your Live page until you hit the publish button

That’s it! Your colors have just been changed!

Tips for Choosing Brand Colors

Your brand colors and logo are part of your company’s visual identity.

Your visual identity is the visible representation of how people perceive your company’s brand.

You’ll typically want to work with a professional designer to develop a logo and color scheme for your brand, as color psychology can heavily influence how your leads and customers think about your brand. A professional designer can provide you with a brand kit with guidelines for the colors and fonts you can use to keep your brand consistent across your website, social media, print material, and more.

If you don’t have the budget to work with a designer yet, we recommend learning a bit about the psychology of colors to help you choose a color palette that will help convey how you want your leads and clients to feel about your brand:

If you have a logo, but don’t know the hex value, you can use this color picker tool. Grab the 6-digit hex color value to match the color of your logo to your site’s colors.

You can also use a color palette generator tool like Coolors to find beautiful color schemes or create your own. If you want to create an expanded color palette based off the main color of your logo, you can enter your logo’s hex value in Coolors and it will give you suggestions of other colors that will look good with it.
