Allshouse Designs First You-Tube Video About Spunks

The Call To Action Button

What is a Call To Action Button?

A CTA is one of the most important buttons to have on your business landing page. Marketing studies show that when you have a well placed CTA on your website. Your customer conversion rates are much higher then if you did not have one. I really think it actually makes users feel good about their web surfing experience. I am always bothered when I log onto a website and can’t find out how to contact the business or worse buy their products or services. Basically in a nut shell, a call of action button is a graphic that looks like a button that is easily seen. Once you push the button. It should take you to a web page to purchase a product, schedule a service, join a news letter or contact the business.

What should it look like?

Here is a screen shot of a simple “Learn More” CTA button on Allshouse Designs.

Research, Research, Research your Market!

I can’t say it enough. Do your research! Starting a business is not easy. Don’t go in blind. The digital age continues to create information on all of us. There is no excuse!  It would be straight up stupid not to figure out your target market, right?

There has been one time in my life where I watched a business rise and fall. It was two years of complete failure. A simple internet search would of told the owner of the business what to do. Instead, he did not do his research. He basically had to lay off the employees that he trained at his expense. The only good outcome was that the employees that he trained went off and worked for other businesses and made hundreds of thousands of dollars for those businesses. It was a harsh reality, but this happens all the time. Do your research and don’t watch your business slip away.

If that is not a good enough reason for you to do your research . Check out some more reasons why market research is important in the Tips and Update section at allshousedesigns.com.
