How to create attractive CTAs?

Have you ever scrolled through a website and suddenly felt the urge to click on that bright, eye-catching button that beckons you to “Learn More” or “Get Started”? That's the magic of the persuasive call to action, often abbreviated as CTA. A CTA is not just a button or a line of text; it's a strategic push, a magnetic pull that prompts your site visitors to take a specific action that aligns with your goals.

Why are CTAs important?

A website without CTAs is like a store without a cash register. Sure, visitors can go inside, browse and admire, but how can they buy? CTAs serve as clear signposts that guide your visitors to the desired actions, whether it's signing up for a newsletter, downloading an e-book, or making a purchase.

Characteristics of effective CTAs

  1. Clarity: Make sure your CTAs are clear and concise. Vague phrases like “Click here” are passé. Instead, opt for specific instructions like “Download the guide” or “Start your free trial”.
  2. Visibility: if a visitor can't see your CTA, they won't click on it. Make it stand out with contrasting colors and ensure it is strategically placed on your page.
  3. Urgency: Creating a sense of urgency can drive action. CTAs such as “Limited time offer” or “Only a few seats left” can create a FOMO effect, encouraging faster conversions.
  4. Value proposition: Let your visitors know what's in it for them. Instead of just "Sign up", how about "Get exclusive offers"?
  5. Optimization for mobile devices: with a significant portion of users accessing websites via a mobile device, ensure your CTAs are mobile-friendly and easy to click on smaller screens.

Off-button CTAs

While buttons are the most common form of CTAs, there's more to explore. Consider banner ads with catchy slogans, sidebar newsletter sign-up forms, or even a strategically placed video that invites users to learn more about a product.


CTAs play a key role in guiding your visitors through the user journey and directly impacting conversion rates. It's not just about adding buttons; it's about creating a pathway for engagement.
