Write More Effective Calls-to-Action Using These Tips

Calls-to-action (CTAs) are an important part of marketing. The right call-to-action will drive your target audience to act, while the wrong one will lead to your message being ignored.

An important thing that you need to be doing is mixing things up every now and then. Are you using a “Read More” call-to-action when pushing all of your blog/newsletter articles? Do you use a simple “Sign Up” for all of your live events?

What you eventually might see happen if you’re doing this is that your audience will stop doing what you’re trying to get them to do. It’s the same incentive every time to do X, why would they continue do to X if they’re not getting any additional value?

Instead of turning in the towel and giving up trying to promote your IT service offerings, try mixing things up a bit and educating yourself on general best practices when it comes to calls-to-action.

General Best Practices

Here are some general best practices that you need to keep in mind when writing calls-to-action for your marketing:

  • Keep Things Short - Calls-to-action should be straight and to the point; use your content itself to go into detail.
  • Convey Value - What do they get? Is it knowledge? Something free (or discounted) that they would find important or useful? Whatever it is, use your call-to-action to indicate it without sounding too sales-y.
  • Make Your CTA’s Easy to Find - Unfortunately, you can’t count on the recipients of your marketing materials to read everything you put in front of them. Make them more noticeable by using larger text or putting text on a colored button.
  • Try Indicating Some Urgency - Use FOMO (fear of missing out) to your advantage, but keep in mind that people will view your marketing materials at different times. If you’re implementing a deadline, give your audience enough time to meet that deadline with multiple marketing materials going out at different times leading up to the deadline.
  • Test to See What Works Best - Use A/B testing to determine which calls-to-action seem to perform better than others.
