A CTA is also an effective element in generating sales leads that is a result of your marketing campaign. Your marketing campaign can include all content, press release, social media updates, email blast and even blog posts.

You have to take into consideration the level of your reader, a new visitor’s behavior is a lot different from your longtime follower.

Structure your CTA in such a way that it can cater to all types of your site readers.

 Avoid “click here” or “submit” CTA

Remember you want your readers to go on a journey. Use snappy language to encourage them to take that journey with you.

Employ verbs instead of adverbs and images that encourages people to “take action” or “get started”.

Avoid Jargons

In my years of constructing CTAs, I found out that the simplest tend to be the most effective in converting prospects into customers. Avoid using technical and hard-to-understand CTAs as this may turn a lot of people off, much worse, confuse them altogether.

Keep it Short

Give them a snapshot of what they’re getting into and please spare them the run-around.
