5 Tips for Creating the Perfect Call-to-Action Ideal for Marketing January 2, 2019
Have you ever watched a YouTube video and at the end the presenter says something like “If you liked my video, please click below to subscribe and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram”? If so, then you know what a Call-To-Action is. Your call-to-action is the way that you get your fans, follows, or readers to do whatever it is you want them to do, be that subscribing to your content, calling your store, or visiting your website. It is usually a button, link, or clickable image that prompts your reader to do the next step in your sales funnel. It doesn’t work all on it’s own, however. It should follow a strong statement of your marketing case. Usually, a call-to-action will appear at the end of a blog post, although you also often see them on social media posts and at various places on a webpage. The purpose is to make it very easy for your potential customers to know what to do next and to actually do it, and therefore increase your business.
