On all digital platforms, whether on the web or on social networks, we deal a lot with the issue of calls to action or better known as Call To Action (CTA).
CTAs or Calls to Action are any type of call (visual or textual) that will seek to get your reader or visitor to perform a certain action. It can currently be found in many of the advertisements we see daily, websites, blogs, email and more…
Calls to action are used to persuade the audience and also get interaction with the brand. Either through comments, clicks and responses to customers. Once the user enters our website and performs a certain action, it will boost web positioning (or SEO).
This action informs the search platforms that your site is of quality, and thus will show it to other navigators. In this way you get more reach and the possibility of more clients.
