Call to Action for your Marketing Channels

What’s the point of pouring hours upon hours of your time, effort and resources into creating social media content, writing emails and promoting your business if the content contains no purpose?

No call to action.

No next step or persuasion to buy, learn and read more!

Every single piece of communication and content you post should have a call to action (CTA) that is aligned with one central point. A call to action should tell someone what you want them to do next or remind them of something they already know. This point or CTA should not explain everything, but provide enough information to encourage people to take some type of action (e.g., learn more, subscribe, sign up for our free trial, don’t miss out, one-time offer, join our mailing list).

This is because your content is so much more powerful when it has a purpose. When it encourages customers to act and connect with your business.

That’s why we recommend you create a list of effective CTAs for every single communication channel (e.g. social media, email marketing, website, etc) and every type of occasion (e.g., soft sell, hard sell, holiday specials and general information).

This will not only save you time, ensure you always include a CTA but also help build trust with your audience.

Without it, your conversions will be low and you’ll never get the results you want.

Our team would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today. We acknowledge that the sharing of knowledge has occurred across the lands and waterways of Australia for many thousands of years. As we continue to share stories and support small tourism businesses we try to listen to the knowledge and practice that has always existed here and consider how we can contribute to the preservation of culture and Country wherever we live and work.
