I have changed the Button Text to ‘Learn More’. And lastly you can add links to a certain Web-page in the Link field, i have placed number 4 right beside it.

Adjust the Style

Move on to the next tab-Style. First you need to enable the Custom feature on. Next I have picked the Horizontal Position at the Left, Vertical Position at the Middle and Text Alignment to the Left. Although I have kept the text color to its default white color, you can change it by using the Text Color Pop-up.
