In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of calls to action. Calls to action are a critical component of any successful website. The call to action is what prompts people who visit your site, or potential customers, to take the next step with you and do something that could lead them down the path to becoming a customer. Without calls to action there would be no way for your website visitors or potential customers to know what they should do next.
A call to action is a phrase that encourages the reader or viewer of your website, blog or ad to take some kind of action. Calls to action are found in every digital marketing strategy and are intended for those who have already shown interest in the content you offer by clicking on it. The call to action can be as simple as “click here” or asking someone to subscribe to your email list. Either way, they are important because they can help increase conversion rates and generate more revenue for your business. We’ll discuss 3 steps that will help you increase your conversion rates and generate more revenue for your business!
As we mentioned above, the importance of calls to action is obvious as they prompt people to visit our website, potential customers and get them excited enough about our product or service to take some kind of next step with us.
Without calls to action there would be no way for your website visitors or potential customers to know what they should do next, that’s why we will find different types of calls to action that you can implement on your website, ad or post, depending on what you want them to do. Here are some of them.
Calls to action can be used in different formats. Type A call-to-actions are the most common, i.e., a box with text that appears on your page and encourages people to follow links or take some kind of action, such as signing up for an email newsletter. The call to action can also have other features such as buttons that allow readers who don't know how to fill out forms with specific details to help them overcome any barriers they may encounter.
The buttons you place on your page should reflect the goals of your campaign; this means if you are trying to sell something, make sure there is a "buy" button, this will help increase conversion rates by an average of 18%. An example of a call-to-action button would be "Buy Now", which allows shoppers interested in purchasing products from your website the opportunity to make their purchase immediately without having to re-enter all of their information or navigate through multiple pages while trying to find your products.
These are a variant of call-to-action in which the box contains images or illustrations and text related to your publication, but does not require any action on the part of the reader. This type of call-to-action can be used in conjunction with other types.
An alternative way to make it easier for readers who do not know how to fill out forms with specific details would be to use text boxes. This helps guide users on what they need when filling in specific sections.
After defining the importance of calls to action, what they’re for and their different types, it’s time to improve them for the best results. Below we will detail three ways in which marketers increase their conversion rates through the effective use of calls to action. You can apply some of them to your CTA’s.
The first point deals with call to action phrases, the second the placement of them and lastly the design and customization of each call to action. We expand below:
1) Use persuasive language in your call to action.
2) Place your call-to-action buttons close to eye level.
3) Design your call to action so that it stands out from other elements on the page.
It is important to use persuasive language in your call to action and not just “send” without emotion or encouragement. It is important to use power words when writing a call to action, believe me it is helpful and will yield many results.
What are power words? These are call-to-action phrases that evoke emotions or compel readers to give a response that is more emotional than logical. For example, “Get a free trial” instead of “Apply” or “Last quotas” instead of “Learn more.”
The call-to-action button should be placed near the top of your page so that it is not overlooked. Sometimes, depending on the content, more than one call to action can and should be placed on a web page, post or ad.
Calls to action are an important part of every call and email you send, but they are also crucial to the customer journey on your website. You want people to know what’s next in their journey. So make sure you have calls at every stage that leads to conversion.
Your call to action should stand out from the rest of your page. A common mistake we find is to keep calls to action in the same background color as our website or in a small size that is not noticeable to the user. Try different colors, shapes and sizes of buttons to find the one that works best for you. Colors also play an important role in calls to action. For example, red drives buyer urgency; green is soothing and gently guides buyers to make a decision; and a deep orange creates a sense of warmth and happiness.
