What is a CTA? 

A call-to-action is a simple link (often in the form of a button or image) that shows your website visitors an offer related to the content they're reading. Is your blog post talking about the best ways to plan a lesson? Include a CTA pointing towards a lesson planning template. Have you written about the benefits of school trips? Add a CTA directing readers to a list of must-see destinations. 

What makes a CTA effective? 

A great CTA will add value to the content that a reader is already engaging with while gently moving them to the next stage of the Buyer's Journey

Your calls-to-action should be eye-catching and feature action-based language. If you're sending people to a downloadable resource, then say 'Download your resource' rather than 'Click here'.
