1. Make use of words that will drive actions

The main reason for CTA is to draw actions, so its imperative to make use of verbs (action words) like; share, click, explore, discover,download, buy etc.

for example: click to know more, buy now, reserve your spot today.

2. Include a bit of urgency to your message

People don’t like to miss out on things, limiting time usually enices users to respond to CTAs. Buy now works better than buy, reserve your spot today shows urgency than reserve.

3. Be consistent

In all things as a business person, consistency matters. Make sure your CTA has a consistent tone, it makes buyers relate with your brand better.

4. Give benefits

As a consumer yourself before making a purchase, you think to yourself, whats in it for me. In your business, you put yourself in the place of your consumer and show them what is in it for them. Make your CTA pass the so what test, if you say buy, I will think why, but if you say buy and smell nice I will know the purpose of buying.

Never stop exploring, each social media page has a CTA that best work with them, keep testing and find out which best speaks to your voice and keep polishing it to fit your brand, voice and vibe
