A great call to action (CTA) can increase customer engagement and boost a business’s website conversion rates. It can convince customers to engage in a particular action, such as visiting a business’s website or motivate them to make a purchase after viewing a business’s services or products.

Call to actions can be used anywhere to promote a business’s products and services, such as on their website, blog, newsletters or social networks. They work well when they trigger an emotional reaction, tell someone to make a purchase, create an urgency for immediate purchase, and provide incentives impossible to refuse.

Consider trying these tips when creating your own call to actions:

Colour matters
No particular colour will guarantee client conversions, so firms should pick one that promotes a certain feeling in clients.

Some colours to consider include:
– Orange: encourages immediate action
– Blue: builds trust and security
– Red: increases energy and a sense of urgency
– Green: promotes growth and relaxation
– Yellow: gets attention and creates low-level anxiety

Craft copy that inspires
The point of a call to action is to make someone want to take action right away, so write something that people are guaranteed to click. Try writing in the first person, use active verbs, be specific and keep the message short.

Size it appropriately
Your CTA button shape is fundamental. Rectangular buttons are the most common, but businesses should try out other shapes and sizes to see if they will complement the overall design better. Even though bigger is usually better, the CTA button should stand out but not be so obnoxious that it ruins the design of the page it is on.
