What Is a Call To Action?

A call to action (CTA) is a statement that prompts the reader to take some sort of action after consuming your business’s content. The action can range from engagement on the post to purchasing a product. The CTA is supposed to further the customer’s experience with your company. Their customer experience should go above and beyond a simple post, it should have a lasting impression on them and affect their purchasing habits. 

The call to action is usually a link, a clickable photo, or a learn more button. CTAs can be embedded in the copy or part of a photo/video. CTAs are very important because they leave the customer with a direction of what to do next. It helps make your business more memorable than the last. 

What Makes a Call To Action Compelling?

Your call to action should always be a compelling plea to further their experience with your business. It should be compelling enough that every time you use a CTA you see an increase in engagement. 

Now what makes a CTA compelling? A compelling and successful call to action will create a sense of urgency. For example, call NOW, or order NOW before it’s too late. The urgency will let the customers know that physical action must be taken immediately or they will miss out on the opportunity.
