Call to Action (CTA)

February 10,2016 in Online Advertising Glossary | 0 Comments


It is the portion of a marketing broadcast that aims to influence an individual to execute a favorable action.


A call to action strives to convince an individual to execute a specific action promptly. “Buy Now!” and “Register Today!” are some general instances. It aims to enhance the market’s acknowledgment rate to the ad copy, as its inadequacy can cause an individual to disregard the ad and advance to another matter.
