Your website's call to action - the key to more enquiries and signups

Doing less better!

A CTA or Call to Action is the action you ask people to take on your website. When your CTA is working well, you'll increase the number of leads and enquiries you get from your site.

What should your call to action be?

You have a lot of options to choose from. You can ask people to:

  • join your mailing list,
  • attend an online event,
  • start a free trial,
  • book a discovery call with you,
  • connect with you on social media,
  • email you.

There's no right or wrong option on this list. If you have a number of ways that people can connect with you your job is to figure out which is the most likely action your ideal client will take and make that the most prominent option.

Sometimes people prefer to ask you a question directly by email before booking an appointment. Maybe they prefer to check out your freebie to get a sense of your style.

It's tempting to show all of the options at once so that at your site visitor has options, but you want to make it easy and obvious. If you shove a load of buttons and instructions in front of people, they're not likely to take action on any of them.

 

How to make your CTA easy and obvious

As always, the decision comes down to who your ideal client is and basing your decisions on what suits them best. You can't know for sure what will work best, so 

Does your website have a clear call to action that is easy to find and simple to use?

Your call to action can make or break the success of your website. By simply having a call to action that offers something your site visitor wants you'll generate more leads and ultimately enroll more clients.⁠

 

 

Depending


Do you have a CTA? Do you have several? ⁠
Is it visible, attractive and actually WORKING?⁠

What are you offering that helps a site visitor to become a lead?⁠

 

KEY TAKE AWAY:

Marketing:

Offer something of value.

Value is soooo subjective, make sure you're offering something that connects with their pain point and is relevant to the service you offer.

Make sure you deliver it in a format that makes sense to the person consuming it. Pfffff. PDFs when most people visit your site on a mobile!

 

Tech :

Easy and obvious

Make sure the buttons work

How many should you add to your site? Don't confuse people

Book a call

Ask a question  - be aware you'll get more spam with a contact form but you just have to accept that

 

 

Email me - invite them

Make sure your contact form works or the email address that you put out there is actually reaching you

Something of value for free

 

Signup - a quick win

What kind of content do they consume online?

 

Go back to the core message that you want to be known for.

Quick win

(Don't make my mistake by offering something that nobody wanted)

I created something that I believed to be really valuable but I got it all wrong --- read more about it here.

 

Easy and obvious

Your freebies should align with what you say

Nurture your subscribers

Offer them something they want in a format they like to consume.
