Crafting An Effective Call To Action

June 25, 2015 | By View Linkedin Profile

  Highly successful websites, landing pages, email campaigns and PPC ads all have an effective call to action in common. That’s a fact. It’s the CTA (call to action) button on your landing page that guides the users to goal conversion.  An effective CTA urges visitors to buy, subscribe, register, apply, download, vote, share, play and learn more. Here are a few best practices to help you improve on your CTA efforts. 1. The CTA has to be aligned to the campaign objective Whether you are running a PPC campaign or an email marketing campaign, the CTA has to be perfectly aligned to your core objective.  Using the right text makes all the difference. One study showed that using first person increased conversion rates by 90%.  A simple “My free trial“ instead of “Your free trial” made all the difference. Use action oriented text, not the usual “Download here” or “Get Started Here”. If it’s an invitation to visit a video page, limit the CTA to Watch Now, not Learn More. If it’s a loan application, use Apply Now. 2. It pays to tell them—clearly & loudly! Not every visitor to your landing page will a button presser be.  Those …

Such is the rising power of mobile. With e-commerce firms actively pushing consumers to their apps and leveraging attractive discounts and deals to encourage consumers to buy through the apps, having a mobile app in place is now all but essential.

If you build only an app platform, it is cheaper as you don’t have to invest in two-sets of codes – both mobile website and app.  However, in the long run, one has to engage the user enough, so she doesn’t uninstall the app.” Experience is the Key Though apps offer an …
