A Call to Action (CTA) is an element that aims to make the audience take an expected action. The main objective is to influence the audience on what to do and what next steps to take, help visitors and users make decisions and make sense of your content or publication. It can take many forms, such as a button, landing page, image, or link.
It's important to enhance emotion, connect with your audience, and clarify the reason for action. One of the best ways to implement a CTA is to make it implicit rather than direct.
It's a key element to selling more. Creating a good CTA helps in the sales funnel process, as it makes it clearer for the customer how to continue his journey. In this way, the website attracts the attention of the visitors by making them interact more with the content.
