Call to Action Tips

Button Design

Creating a button is important. Use a color that contracts with the background of the webpage. Also, use a text that stands out from the button background. Make the button large and very visible. Use things like bevel and shading to make the button look like it should be clicked. Think about making buttons that can be used on your mobile site and your website. Also, create eye grabbing and direct text that is not too vague, but lets customers know what they are clicking the button for.

Page Design (When and Where to Use)

Firstly, when it comes to positioning on the page, put the button in the middle with plenty of breathing room. Add a great graphic, but make it clear as to what it is about. Take every opportunity you can to use CTAs in a variety of places, not just your webpage. You might want to do some testing to see when and where your CTAs are most effective to get customers to click on them. Have these buttons link to a unique page that lets the customers know, again, what a great things they are about to get.
