Do your calls to action grab users' attention?

There are many factors that can influence the design of your call-to-action and it’s certainly a feature that benefits from extensive testing and tweaking.

An effective CTA should leave the shopper in no doubt about the next step they need to take to add an item to their basket, complete a purchase etc. 

To achieve this, they need to catch the user's attention, and eyetracking is a great way to measure the effectiveness of different CTA designs. 

Thanks to Luke Hay, Research and UX Director at noporkpies, we have some useful tests on CTA design for you...

Three case studies to help improve your email marketing conversion rates

Having recently published an article about why email isn’t dead, I thought it would be useful to roundup some case studies to help marketers inject some life into their own campaigns.

I’ve previously looked at how testing subject lines and segmentation can improve email marketing, but these three studies focus more on calls-to-action.

Hopefully they should provide some inspiration for marketers who are in the process of testing their own email messages.

Seven useful tips to help with your mobile copywriting

Among the many challenges businesses face while creating an optimised experience for smartphone users is how to deal with mobile copywriting.

It’s not simply the case that sales copy or product descriptions that were created for a desktop site can be copied and pasted onto a mobile site.

The context and use case is entirely different and the copywriting needs to reflect those conditions.

The situation is made more difficult for sites that use responsive design, as the copywriting has to be suitable for all screen sizes. However that’s something I’ll address in a future post.

At the moment I’m more interested in how to write for sites and apps built specifically for smartphone users.

Improve your web conversions with the 'LIFT' model

How small copywriting changes can lead to big increases in conversions

It’s easy to overlook the value of copywriting in web design as there are so many other factors to take into account, many of which have a more obvious impact on the user experience.

But as a writer I’m obviously keen to highlight the impact that good copywriting can have on conversions and revenue.

As such I’ve rounded up several case studies which show that even small tweaks to copywriting can have a big impact on conversions, particularly on calls-to-action.

Six useful case studies on where to place your CTA to maximise conversions

There are many factors that influence the design of your call-to-action and it’s certainly a feature that benefits from extensive testing and tweaking.

It’s likely that it’s an area that is somewhat neglected though, as our new Adobe Digital Marketing Optimisation Survey found that a majority of companies (53%) spend less than 5% of their total marketing budgets on optimisation activities, despite the fact that a small uplift in conversion rates can translate into thousands of dollars of extra revenue.

Aspects such as the size, wording and colour can all impact clickthrough rate and conversions, but placement is potentially one of the most important factors.

Traditional wisdom states that the CTA needs to go above the fold so that potential customers can’t avoid it, but as these case studies show that isn’t necessarily always true...

Seven tips for designing an effective ecommerce call-to-action

In ecommerce much of the focus is on the best ways to attract traffic and visitors, meaning that tactics for conversion rate optimisation are often neglected.

In fact our new Adobe Digital Marketing Optimisation Survey found that a majority of companies (53%) spend less than 5% of their total marketing budgets on optimisation activities, despite the fact that a small uplift in conversion rates can translate into thousands of dollars of extra revenue.

One relatively easy way of improving conversions is by making sure you have the best possible call-to-action (CTA). 

There’s no exact formula for the perfect ecommerce CTA, but there are some aspects that web designers should focus on tweaking and testing to make sure they’re maximising their conversion rate.
