How to Create Stellar Call-to-Actions

How to Create Stellar Call-to-Actions

How to Create Stellar Call-to-Actions

The “call to action” (CTA) is an essential component of any marketing initiative. It’s the answer to “what now?” after any article, video, advertisement, blog or other promotional offer. The call to action represents a compelling message that is intended to get your prospects to do what you want them to do. It’s a vital step to lead generation (which 63% of marketers state it is their biggest challenge) and also guides prospects through the buying journey. Without a call to action, content on a web page or marketing channel can become a dead end for prospects that otherwise could turn into qualified leads.

Tips for Better Call-to-Actions

  1. Every marketing communication needs a CTA. That means marketers need to have a goal of what they want website visitors or other prospects and customers to do as a result of reading a blog, email, article or other form of communication. In other words, it is the built-in next step. A CTA may be to read the next blog, visit your company’s “about us” page, schedule an appointment, sign up for a free trial, download a white paper or make a purchase. This is the way CTAs support lead generation and engagement and also improve the SEO and crawlability of your website.
  2. Get graphic. Create CTA buttons that stand out without killing the design elements of the website or marketing piece. Consider using slightly different and less muted colors than your usual design with bold and clickable graphics. Test and find the right one that works for your audiences and brand. For example, button-shaped CTAs created a 45% boost in clicks for CreateDebate, while SAP found that orange CTAs boosted their conversion rate more than 32.5%. Keep CTAs visible or anchored, and ensure optimization for all devices.
  3. Evoke trust, urgency and value through messaging. While many variables and possibilities exist when choosing a CTA, there are three aspects that stand out above all else: trust, urgency and value. Depending on your brand, product and service, you can promote trust, urgency and value in many different ways. Some considerations are:
    • Evoke emotion, excitement or enthusiasm.
    • Stay concise, relevant and meaningful.
    • Get creative with brand voice.
    • Don’t “over-promise” and keep messaging results-driven.
    • Use numbers or statistics when possible.
    • Use strong command verbs or first-person language.
    • Be exclusive with membership benefits or limited-time offers.

Review + Revise = Results
CTAs are no different than other aspects of marketing in that companies need to track and measure performance. It’s hard to know what your audience will respond to until you start experimenting. Continue to review and adjust the placement, design and wording of your CTAs based on observations and the data you collect from your target audiences. Just like the mantra in real estate is “location, location, location,” the mantra in marketing is “test, test, test.” Attention to continual refinement and improvement is the process that will generate the best results and ensure your CTAs are producing the results you seek.

    How to Establish an Effective Marketing Analytics Process

    How to Establish an Effective Marketing Analytics Process

    Data-driven marketing analysis is pivotal to the success of any marketing effort. Without the insights and direction analytics provide, companies are behind the curve ball when it comes to establishing and maintaining a competitive advantage. Based on the information collection and analysis of data, marketers can learn how customers interact with a company’s marketing content. For example, analytics show specifics such as how many pages a visitor clicked through before leaving a website or which ads are most effective. That’s the good news. The bad news comes from the fact that the abundance of information can sometimes make it difficult to know what’s important and what isn’t.

    Evolving technologies make it easier for companies to access data about their customers and prospects. Whether using automated technology, Google Analytics, surveys, focus groups or input from salespeople and others, data exists just about anywhere. If your goal is to embark on or improve upon a data-driven analysis strategy to evaluate your marketing and outreach efforts, here’s a step-by-step guide:

    1. Define your goal. Start with the aim of answering key questions. For example: What problem needs to be solved? How can we increase website traffic? What blog topics will engage our target audiences? How can we generate interest from new prospects? How can we shorten the sales cycle? Always start with a clear and defined objective that’s supported by a current baseline.
    1. Develop a plan. With any marketing initiative, there’s a need for a plan, and data analysis is no different. Once you’ve defined your goal, identify potential sources of data. You may require access to your website, social media and email software to determine response, engagement, click-through and unsubscribe rates. Narrow the scope of your plan to target information most suited to your objective. Define metrics, technologies, and strategies you are going to use. Ensure roles are defined for those involved, along with deadlines and open communication about progress.
    1. Collect data. When collecting data, focus on pulling data from multiple sources. Vary and diversify your data pool. Even if your objective is to discover specifics about a particular target market or about use on a certain social media platform, information from many resources helps marketers better understand the whole picture. For example, if you identify trends, habits and concerns of current clients, you’re better positioned to recognize hot prospects with challenges you can solve. Cast a wide net to ensure you collect feedback from many sources, and, as a result, you might discover information you didn’t know would be useful.
    1. Organize data. Before you dive deep into your analysis, take a quick surface look at your data, and make sure it can be accessed in an organized fashion. Your organizational structure is determined by the objective identified in Step 1. Whether you use spreadsheets, a data collection software package, or simple pen to paper, prioritizing data that’s most relevant to solving your problem will free up time and resources to what matters most.
    1. Analyze further. Once you have your data arranged and prioritized, conduct the analysis. Make sure you understand current industry trends and have the expertise necessary to draw sensible and accurate conclusions. Bring in fellow experts and get points of view from multiple departments for a wider perspective. Build tables or graphs and segment results by groups that make sense (demographics, industry, etc.). It is much easier to discover major trends if your data is organized effectively.
    1. Present your findings. Once trends have been identified, arrange and present findings to colleagues, partners, investors and even clients or prospects. Get input and incorporate what’s relevant. Then consider developing a white paper, blog or press release based on your findings. Whatever outreach channel you use, data-supported content is a powerful way to share and distribute your expertise.
    1. Utilize results to make decisions. Now that you’ve organized your results, sought feedback and shared input with outside sources, determine if you answered your original question. Act upon your objective with the data-driven results you amassed, and continue to review and revise as necessary to keep marketing initiatives top-notch.

    Marketers rely on data to evaluate their current initiatives and analyze their value, impact, and significance. The careful analysis of this data helps marketers to zero in on what marketing efforts are making the biggest difference. Then, use that data and analysis to tweak current strategies and tactics, do away with poor performing programs, and create new ones to better engage your audiences. When data turns into insightful and responsive actions, you develop and maintain the competitive edge you seek.

      Build Authority Through Content Marketing

      Build Authority Through Content Marketing

      “Authority” and “Expert” are two terms that you’ve no doubt heard quite often in the realm of Internet Marketing. They both refer to people or businesses that are considered trusted resources or influencers in their field or industry. It’s a good place to be and everyone wants to get there.

      Content Marketing can help you reach those goals.

      What is Content Marketing?

      Content Marketing is all about creating and sharing interesting, useful content. It’s not about making the sale right then and there, it’s more about building relationships with your audience. The expectation is that, over time, your audience will come to associate you as a trusted resource (aka an authority) for a certain product or service because you’ve been so diligent about putting out information and resources without the hard sell; once you’ve become an authority, sales will naturally follow.

      Becoming an Authority With Content Marketing

      Becoming an authority through content marketing isn’t as simple as throwing up some blog posts every once in a while. It takes strategy, dedication, and understanding your audience. Here’s how you can use content marketing to become an authority yourself:

      1. Identify a Niche. Every successful authority has a very narrow and defined niche in which they dominate. Whole industries are just too broad and unwieldy to be manageable, so niches are a necessity. For example, I love Instagram. I think it’s an underutilized form of Social Media Content Marketing so I’ve been spending more time building up my Instagram content. Your niche may be a specific platform like this or it may be a specific skill, service, or product depending on your industry.
      2. Be Different. Your content has got to stand out if you want to be noticed. Skip over the generic stuff and dig deeper to answer audience questions or address a problem or concern. One of the easiest and most effective ways to do this is through a simple Google search. Take a look at what’s ranking on search engines for your desired niche and build on it. If the results are text-heavy, maybe you want to put out videos, slideshows, podcasts, or infographics (other types of content).
      3. Promote It. “If you build it, they will come” sounds great, but that doesn’t really You’ve got to promote your content for it to get noticed. The more places you can promote it, the better: social media, guest blogs, videos, participating in expert roundtables or events – and do it consistently. The idea is to get the content as much exposure and reach as possible.

      Know Your Audience

      One thing I can’t stress enough is the need to know your audience and cater to their use patterns. Posting videos on YouTube does you no good if your audience doesn’t watch videos or if they aren’t interested in the content you’re providing. Tracking your website analytics and social media activity can show you where your audience is spending their time and which content is generating the most engagement. This gives you solid direction on where to focus your content marketing efforts, further defining your niche and maximizing your reach.

      Google Analytics can help you evaluate the most effective, engaging content on your website. Using this tool, you can see how long visitors spend on your site, which pages or posts get the most views and/or comments, and whether or not any posts or pages have led to conversions via form completion.

      Social media sites make it easy to evaluate engagement. Simply look at the number of Shares, Likes, or Comments a post receives and whether or not any of those posts resulted in a clickthrough to your website. You can also take a look at a piece of content’s reach if you use the social site’s analytics tools.

      Content marketing is an excellent way to establish trust, build authority, and boost your reputation as an expert in your field. It takes time and it takes work, but the payoff is worth it.

        What Every Marketer Needs to Know about Content Development

        What Every Marketer Needs to Know about Content Development

        Content creation, syndication and consumption platforms are like every other aspect of business. They are constantly changing. To ensure your content represents the quality you seek and achieves the results you want, here is a checklist of B2B considerations:

        Interactive visual content

        The demand for interactive content online continues to grow exponentially. Platforms such as YouTube for video content, WordPress for blogs, or Instagram for photos are in widespread usage. More and more marketers are using infographics for data visualizations, presentation platforms for expertise distribution, and webinars for education and networking. While some of these platforms, infographics, for example, have been around in concept for decades, their popularity and use began to rise in the early 2000s. Now, they are a mainstay of business development teams who aim to compile, analyze and share important company or industry statistics. Certain platforms such as Slideshare for expert presentation content or Google Hangouts for webinar content and relationship building are developing each day.

        Virtual reality (VR)

        VR has been headlining research and development for many years but only now has it become a reality for consumers and businesses. The question isn’t if VR can become a part of the marketing plan, but how. This is the stage of quantity vs. quality. As consumers jump on the VR bandwagon, many users and companies will unload poor quality content in hopes of simply putting their name on the new platforms. Stay ahead of the competition and begin developing a VR marketing plan now to maximize content quality and reinforce your brand.

        Networking platforms

        We all know the big three: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. They are a part of mainstream society, and it’s hard to think they’re going anywhere. However, business trends and interests change on a day-to-day basis, constantly making room for new social networking platforms. Facebook Business, for example, was invented in response to the many businesses trying to gain exposure through a platform originally designed as an “online yearbook.” Other large social platforms have followed suit, with Instagram Business or Google My Business. However, new platforms are finding users as trends and interests change, for example:

        • org: A rapidly growing platform designed specifically for producing expert marketing content and organizing a personal newsfeed of blog and email subscriptions. Platforms like this may overtake more traditional distribution methods such as email or Facebook for blog, article, white paper and newsletter consumption.
        • com: Another content sharing website, Medium allows users to explore submitted content based on industry. Curated by business professionals, Medium concentrates on quality of content, insights and original ideas.
        • com: Centered around the idea of answering user-posed questions, Quora allows brand advocates and industry specialists to share their expertise. Like-minded individuals can locate industry-specific content and knowledge through a question-and-answer format, and continue the conversation in a forum-like style. Users have the ability to contact industry experts directly if they’re interested in learning more.

        As with other business initiatives and realities, content creation, syndication and consumption will always evolve. By keeping informed and willing to invest in new opportunities, marketers can stay ahead of marketplace trends and demands through ongoing learning, testing and application of the best technology has to offer. Companies that are willing to reach out, embrace the new and work through the kinks that come with change will reap the benefits.

          TwentyThree, The Video Marketing Platform, is Changing Webinars

          TwentyThree, The Video Marketing Platform, is Changing Webinars

          TwentyThree, The Video Marketing Platform, today announces TwentyThree Webinars, a new tool that changes the way marketers generate leads, engage their audience, and educate their customers.

          As a pioneering marketing category, webinar tools have often been born from web conferencing technologies. By giving marketers a tool that they can finally love, TwentyThree Webinars aims to improve the negative 28 Net-Promoter Score that current webinar tools received – according to a study conducted by TwentyThree –  from marketers around the world.

          “TwentyThree’s Webinar tool allows us to focus on the results of the webinar, instead of investing hours in setting up or running one,” said Accelo’s Head of Marketing, Juan Parra. “We have a constant feedback loop to see what was engaging and what content needed to be optimized. All of this data is also paramount for our sales and marketing team, and through the HubSpot integration, we can see all of that data in the right place.”

          Taking webinars from a technical category to a marketing category, TwentyThree Webinars focuses on giving marketers all the tools to achieve success. According to the same study done by TwentyThree, 68% of marketers use 2-5 different tools to set up, run and analyze a single webinar. TwentyThree Webinars eliminates manual processes and gives companies just one tool to run webinars.

          TwentyThree Webinars enables marketers to run webinars in-browser and removes the need for viewers and speakers to download large softwares to engage with webinar content. Along with control over every aspect of design – from landing pages to emails – TwentyThree’s platform gives a full understanding of webinar performance.

          “Webinars are the original video marketing, but they have often been seen as an entirely different category from how marketers should be running their video. For the last ten years, we’ve heard our customers complain about their webinar tools, inspiring us to finally fix and launch a tool that is a natural fit with our video marketing platform,” said TwentyThree CEO Thomas Madsen-Mygdal. “By adding Webinars to our video marketing platform it gives marketers one central location to succeed with every aspect of video.”

          By completing their video marketing platform with Webinars, TwentyThree customers now have the four core pillars of video. Social Video, Website Video, Video Data, and now, Webinars, enables marketers to run their videos everywhere, power video on their website, stop ignoring video engagement data, and use a webinar tool that they finally love.

          TwentyThree will roll out an innovative global marketing campaign that inspires marketers to finally love their webinar tool, including a webinar promise letter, launch announcement, world tour to 30+ cities, a webinar studio in San Francisco, and sending out thousands of webinar toolkits to marketers.

          TwentyThree Webinars will be available immediately for $199, or part of the full video marketing platform from TwentyThree, starting at $699.

          About TwentyThree™ 
          Video is the best way to tell stories and connect with your customers. At TwentyThree, we empower marketing teams to finally integrate and add video to their marketing stack to successfully run video on their website, across all channels, with webinars, and track all video data.

          HomeActions and IndustryNewsletters Create 'Social Sharing,' a Free Social Media App

          HomeActions and IndustryNewsletters Create ‘Social Sharing,’ a Free Social Media App

          HomeActions LLC (HA) and its IndustryNewsletters (IN) division, a lead generation and client relationship platform for real estate agents, accountants, payroll bureaus, lawyers and other professionals, have just rolled out Social Sharing, a new integrated app that lets clients seamlessly post HA and IN articles on the clients’ own LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

          HA and IN provide a complete newsletter system that lets clients send out fully customizable newsletters to their clients and prospects, and the clients can choose from among thousands of professionally written library articles to add to these newsletters. Now, clients are no longer limited to using these articles in their newsletters. With a push of a button, any HA/IN library article can be scheduled into the clients’ social media platforms. With Social Sharing, clients have complete control over which platforms they use and when.

          The simplicity of the system means HA and IN clients that were unsure about how to use social media platforms or concerned about how much time it would take no longer have to worry: Social Sharing does it for them with the HA/IN articles they’ve chosen.

          “No professional can ignore social media today — it’s essential for marketing and client contact,” said Barry Friedman, founder and CEO of HA and IN. “With Social Sharing, we’re thrilled with how easy we’ve made it for even small firms to become big players in social media without having to write a single word.”

          Social Media — and More — All for Free

          Social Sharing is available to all HA and IN clients at no additional charge. HA and IN are also eliminating the cost for other well-established add-ons: its Automated Valuation Model, which helps agents market themselves with data-driven consumer engagement; Neighborhood360, which provides readers with estimated property value based on local data, as well as additional community information; and OnTarget, an email blast tool that allows clients to send up to 20,000 email communications per month to their contacts between regular newsletter launches.
