It’s another chilly but sunny morning here in Central Ontario.
It’s going to be an interesting day today. I ended up sleeping on the couch last night because we were putting my new closet organizer together, and my wardrobe is strewn all over the bed. Between not being very comfortable and Dan the Cat deciding it would be a good idea to jump on me all night, I probably only got about two hours of sleep. I sincerely hope I don’t fall asleep on Mel in the workshop this afternoon!
Since I don’t think I’m coherent enough to even edit a piece of PLR this morning, today’s read comes from my stash of archived content, but it relates to yesterday’s post (which also ties in nicely with Cindy’s deal for her Daily Money Makers Toolkit today).
Today’s Read: Understanding Calls to Action: What Is A CTA?
A “call to action” or CTA is a marketing term that describes the part of your sales letter, email, page, blog post, and other content that you create that helps make the sale. It’s the “call” you create for your audience to entice them to “take action.”
There are many actions you may want your audience to take, and they can be placed anywhere within your marketing content. Some examples of actions you may want your audience to take:
- Download a Coloring Page
- Download a Free eBook
- Sign up for a Webinar
- Get a Coupon
- Attend an Event
- Sign up for More Information
- Download a Checklist
- Buy Your Widget
You can place these CTAs wherever you like, and it’s usually better if you place them in multiple places. You might place a CTA at the end of your blog post, in multiple places on a sales page, at the end of your email, or even inside your whitepaper, eBook, or webinar.
CTAs are the connecting pieces of your funnels
You may have a CTA to sign up for the webinar, but inside the webinar, you may have a sign up for your six-week course. Inside your six-week course, you may have a CTA for your one-on-one coaching program. As you can see, the CTA can continue indefinitely if you have a better product to promote.
This is how your funnels are created. One product leads to the next, and you move your customer through the steps of the funnel with effective calls to action.
Use only one CTA at a time
But wait a minute, you say. You just told me to string a whole bunch of CTAs together to make a funnel. Now you’re telling me to only do one at a time?
Yes, and here’s why…
Too many options can confuse the readers as to which call to action you want them to follow. The best CTA strategy is to only include ONE CTA in each piece of content. You can put that CTA in several different places in that content (and we’ll talk about that in an upcoming article), but your content should have one prominent goal and that is for the reader to take the action you want them to take.
How you string them together becomes your funnel, but each step in the funnel offers only one call to action that leads to the next. So, you might offer upsells and down sells within your CTA strategy, but you wouldn’t offer both an upsell and a downsell on the same page. Does that make sense?
Your call to action should be direct, to the point, apparent at first glance, and congruent with the content and the audience to be of any good.
Creating effective CTAs
The trick with calls to action is that you need to be very clear, eye-catching, and aligned with your audience’s buying stage.
Think of it this way… if your audience is parents teaching their preschooler to read, you wouldn’t try to sell them a high-school English text. That’s not the stage they’re at. Not only will you not make any sales, you’ll also show them that you don’t really understand what their needs are.
But if you know your audience well, you’ll know exactly where and when to place your CTAs so that you can get good results.
Effective calls to action (CTAs) are so much more than a button that says, “buy now”. An effective call to action will compel your audience to act on your call to do something. That something isn’t always about buying. Sometimes it’s about getting them on your list, other times it’s about ensuring they’re watching your social media, coming to your live events, and more. Whatever your goal, a call to action is a way to get your audience to take the next step in building up the relationship toward becoming a customer.
