As discussed in the video above, you need to literally tell people what you want them to do in your blog posts. This is referred to using calls to actions or “CTAs”. You should use them often in your content and blog. Never assume that because you slap on some banners or a few links, that people will click on them. Most of the times your audience is just scanning through the information. So you want to make sure that your “calls to action” are repeated and very prominent as they scan.
Try to use various styling elements like using bold, underline and bright blue links. Don’t just slap on banners and depend on them. Be sure to use text links as well so you can combat the banner blindness we all have.
I know this tip seems pretty easy but it’s very powerful. I assumed than many bloggers are aware of this. But I’m always surprised to see how many blogs lack strong calls to action. So if you knew this already, then that’s great for you. But for those of you that didn’t, you will be happily surprised how applying this increases your conversions relatively quickly.
