When a visitor clicks on one of these calls-to-action, they’ll be taken to your landing page. In effect, every call-to-action you have on your website is the beginning of a conversion path.

Ensure that CTAs are click-worthy by using actionable language and colours that help them stand out from the rest of your website.
