How to create the Perfect CTA?

Maintain a Clear Hierarchy

→ Let the important ones stand out. Give appropriate weightage.

→ Make it easy to understand with/without the supporting text.

→ Should make sense in isolation and explain whatever it links to.

Communicate Value & Be Clear

→ Copyrighting for the web is a real art, and writing the perfect CTA is a huge challenge.

→ Never let the question arise from the visitor – “What’s in it for me?”

→ It should be clear in visibility.

The Gentle Art of Persuasion

→ Simple words can increase the sense of urgency & immediacy.

→ Strong Action Verbs like Register Now!, Watch the Video, Learn More, Compare, etc.

The Secondary Nudge

→ A secondary line of text copy, positioned near the CTA can support your primary message. It can be used to answer the user’s concerns about a service/feature/benefit that will in-turn increase conversion percentage.


Icons Do HELP!

→ Icons can enhance a CTA by communicating a bit of extra information.

For example: A right arrow can increase urgency and imply a positive forward movement. A left arrow implies going back or undo. A padlock implies safety or security.


NEVER Disappoint the user!!

→ Once the user has acted on your CTA, make sure you deliver what you promised them and carry it through, otherwise you’ll lose them fast!

Test, Measure & Refine

→ The only way to understand your audience is by testing different design and word combinations.

→ Test techniques by A/B Testing & Multi iterative Testing.
