Create a Successful CTA
These tips will help you create a CTA that can encourage your website visitors and email recipients to use those calls-to-actions that will lead to the conversion that your business needs.
Pique Their Interest
Make the reader curious. Create some anticipation and make them want to find out what happens if they click that button.
You could try building this curiosity by holding off on some information, but make it clear that there is more to find out. For example, you could send an email with a button ‘Click Here To Reveal Your Surprise Discount!’. The user knows that they have a discount for your online store, but they don’t know how much. It will be tough to resist knowing what it is.
Certain phrases can imply a limited or exclusive offer. One time only deals make people want to make a decision, and can encourage them to make a conversion sooner.
Some examples of these phrases include
- Request Your Invitation
- While Stocks Last
- Get Before It’s Gone!
- Today Only
You could also create a sense of urgency with a countdown of how long a particular even has left.
Give the people what they want right away. Making them wait for a reward will negate any positive relation to your business. This can be done by giving bonus points for signing up for a loyalty scheme, instead of them having to wait to buy something before getting any benefits.
Appeal to Frugality
People are always looking for a good deal! There are a lot of people who will spend hours looking for the best deal before making a purchase. So, appeal to these customers by advertising your best deals!
They may not be interested in a new TV for £1000, but if it is 50% off, they may not be able to resist the saving!
Personalise your Message
People are more likely to engage with content if it is personalised. Make them feel included in the community of your customers/users.
Some small changes can make a big difference.
- Instead of ‘Sign Up’ use ‘Sign Me Up’
- Use ‘Include Me on the Wait’ instead of ‘Join the Wait List’
- Instead of ‘Download Copy’ use ‘Download My New Copy’
The smallest change can effect your CTA performance. Its vital that you can gather the data to monitor how well your updates make.
Whenever a change is made, even if is just a colour adjustment, monitor the results so that you can make an informed decision on the best design and concept.
