Also check out where the button appears when our visit your website on a mobile device to make sure it still can be seen. Depending on what you call to action is, you will then use it in different ways. If you use a simple “sign up to learn more” you can share information by email with that sign up. If you choose “sign up for our newsletter” you need to email that person to confirm that they would like to receive emails from you. If you use a service like GDI, look in your missed sign up emails to see who may have clicked the call to action button but not completed the signup process. The call to action is very important, but follow up is what makes it all work.

Every website needs a call to action button, no matter its purpose. The first step toward a new customer includes the call to action button, so make sure it’s on your site!
