CTA Copywriting Tips

As a marketer, CTAs are relevant because they encourage your audience to take action on a marketing campaign.

 

Below are a few examples of the types of CTAs you might use in marketing materials:

  • Try for free. Nearly every company website has a free trial offer today. Each of them are CTAs of this variety, and they allow people to demo a product before deciding if it's worth the cost to them.
  • Learn more. Sometimes, all you want is to give your potential customers a little more information so they're prepared to buy something. That's what this CTA is for.
  • Join us. Do you manage an online community? Is your product built on collaboration between users? You might find yourself placing "join us" CTA somewhere on your website.

What are your favorite phrases to use when pointing to different products or content offers?

Sometimes talking in first person could works, "I want it" for example

I think it depends on your brand/ToV as to how conversational you should be - have a read, have a look, why not join us? Fancy a chat? See how it works, etc

I haven't found a CTA that resonates with me yet. I like the suggestion about using the word "claim" instead of "get" or "download". I will be using that and changing some of my CTAs very soon.

Personally, I love "Check it out!" This CTA is very versatile and seems a bit more conversational than "Learn more," which I admittedly do use a lot as well.

"Claim offer"

I love it as it has, as Jorie said, a sense of urgency.

It's good to get creative with you CTA language as long as it aligns with your offer. One CTA that did well for us when promoting a webinar registration was "Get Smarter"

The one that struck me is claim your 6 month trial now. that shows interest, and shows the potential client we are willing to have them try it.

- I must admit the first one really got me: "Try for free";

- I think "Download now" or "Click to try it" (and their variants) are the ones that are interest me the most since my main topic is software/SaaS;

- I'm quite curious about acquiring a deeper comprehension of the shareware strategy adopted by many software/SaaS companies throughout the history of CS.
