What is a call to action?
Call to Action or a CTA is very simply what you are telling your webpage visitor what you want them to do. When people visit your site you need to direct them to where you want them to go! Seems pretty obvious right? Well it should but if you start to look for calls-to-actions now when you are on other website’s you’ll begin to notice how wildly ignored this best practice is. Calls-to-Actions can be presented as a link, image, button or whatever else you think will help you convince your website visitor to take action.
Just like this below…..
CTA’s are the secret sauce to driving traffic to your offers. If your CTA’s suck and don’t stand out…nobody’s going click them and you won’t get any attention to the wonderful offer you have.
Where do you use CTA’s?
Glad you asked, CTA’s can be and should be used on every piece of content or interaction point with your audience. Calls-to-actions can be used on product pages (non landing pages) in display ads, email, blog posts, social media, direct mail and really anywhere you think you can market your offer.
