Call to Action
What and Why?
A CTA, or call to action is imperative in any kind of marketing. It is imperative in online marketing. A Call to action tells your prospect what they should do. It is designed to provoke an immediate response.
People don’t know what to do unless you tell them. So never do anything – not a webinar, a direct mail piece, an email, a blog post, a sales page – nothing should be without a call to action.
