“The call-to-action is the tipping point between conversions and bounce”, says Neil Patel. We couldn’t agree more. Call-to-actions should be strong and catchy enough and solicit a click. One way to make them click is by using first-person phrasing. Doing so helped ContentVerve see a 90% increase in click-through rate. They said “Start my free 30-day trial” instead of . “Start your free 30-day trial”, and it did all the magic.
From the moment you log in to Facebook, to the shows recommended to you on Netflix, to the questions you have for Google, the content you most enjoy online was customized and served up to you for a reason. We’ve seen this behavior on Amazon for a long time, where we get products we personally love shown directly to us.
Your visitors expect the same personalized experience on your own website — and in your calls-to-action (CTAs) as well.
