Implementing targeted and curated Call to Actions (CTA) is important to engage the user to navigate and explore the interface. Commonly, we see this for a discount in exchange for an email. A pop-up for a brand would prompt the user if you would like 10% and content would follow with “No thanks, I want to pay full price” which puts the action into perspective for the user.
There are three main types of CTAS, which include:
- Basic CTA — This is a call-to-action that does not change based on any attributes of the visitor. It’s the same for every visitor that sees it.
- Multivariate CTA — These are similar to Basic CTAs, but instead, there are two or more CTAs being tested against one another. Traffic is typically split evenly to each variation and then you can select a winner based on which CTA converts better.
- Smart CTA — These are CTAs that are tailored to an individual. There can be numerous ways CTAs like this adapt to a visitor, such as their location, browser language, whether their already a customer or a lead, and much more. –Hubspot Post

A consumer has access to most brands 24/7 and the pressure to curate and innovate content and call to actions that increase the bottom line, can leave brands grasping at ideas and way to engage the user. It is important to be authentic- because authenticity is what most consumers relate with.
Performing analysis and target research to understand the certain user personas to target when developing and curating content is crucial. Depending on the nature of the industry or the product or service being offered, there are different strategies to interact with the user without compromising brand values and standards.Read More...
