Adding a File Download Button


Adding a file download to your landing page is a great strategy to entice your customers to get the information you need. File downloads are only linked to form confirmations, since you’re trading a file download for your customer’s information once they submit a form.

Unbounce allows you to have file downloads on your form confirmation pages. This lets you easily manage your lead capture campaigns and the files you’re giving away when people complete your forms.

At this time, a file download button only works on the form confirmation dialog box. 

How to set up a file download on your form confirmation dialog box: 

  1. Drag and drop the Form form_button.png widget onto the spot on your landing page where you’d like to host your lead generation form, or click on a form to edit the existing form confirmation dialog box.
  2. Once you’ve edited your form to your satisfaction, click on the Form Confirmation Dialog tab in the top left corner of the Unbounce Builder. A new screen will appear. file_download_Form_confirmation_tab.png
