21 Brilliant Call-to-action Examples to Boost Conversions

Sally's about to travel to Italy and arrives on your website where she finds the perfect opt-in offer "A local’s guide to Rome’s gourmet food scene". However, when she's about to download it, the opt-in button states "Submit".

She's confused and slightly worried... Will she get the guide if she submits the form?

She closes your site and goes back to Google to look for another option.

Bummer, right? She was your perfect lead. But that one word triggered a feeling of uncertainty that made her leave.

How can you make sure to avoid this type of anxiety in your visitors' mind?

The answer: Specific call-to-action (CTA) buttons.

Unlimited Design Opportunities for Your Bulleted and Numbered Lists

Bulleted lists and numbered lists are the backbone of any well structured piece of content.

You'll want to use them in blog posts, comparison pages, landing pages, sales pages, opt-in forms and anywhere else you care about grabbing your readers' attention.

But let's be honest... The basic unordered and ordered list in the text editor are kinda boring and won't cut it if you're looking to impress your visitors and get them to convert.

That's why in Thrive Architect, our visual editor for WordPress, you have the styled list and the numbered list element. Both of these offer such a wide range of cutomization options that you'll find yourself creating lists just for fun (or is that just me?).

Let me show you!

A/B Split Testing in WordPress For Non-Mathematicians

"I don't understand why nobody seems to think split testing is sexy!"

My friend looked at me as confused as a chameleon in a bag of Skittles.

"We've just doubled our sign-up rate thanks to an A/B test we ran on one of our landing pages" I continued. "If that isn't sexy, I don't know what is..."

He exploded laughing but admitted that that was a pretty cool result.

New Thrive Leads Template: The Sticky Slide-in

"Good Afternoon! Would you like to know when our next exposition is happening?" the museum clerk asks when you walk in.

"No, thank you. I'm just looking around for now" you answer.

"Okay, enjoy the photo exhibition, sir."

15 minutes later, after you've made your way through, decided you loved the exhibition and want more, you stop to ask the clerk: "Excuse me, how can I stay informed about what happens at the museum?"

"Simply give me your name and email sir and I'll add you to our list."

2 minutes later, while walking out, you're reading the welcome email on your phone and starting to plan which exposition to explore next weekend.

Now imaging what would have happened if after greeting you, the clerk simply disappeared... Would you still have signed up?

Same holds true for your website visitors. If they can't find where to sign up, they will just leave, never to be seen again. 

Discover how the Sticky Slide-in can fix that problem for you!

Can You A/B Test on a Low Traffic Website?

Traffic doesn’t matter.

Please don’t boo me off stage just yet... Give me a few minutes to explain why this is.

When we talk about A/B testing, the very first concern people always have is: Do I have enough traffic?

Harry's comment on the Thrive Optimize A/B testing webinar sums it up perfectly:

"This sounds all very well, but the requirement is that you need a lot of traffic on your website to have enough data to do A/B testing." 

And I understand where he’s coming from, but the full story is more nuanced than that...
