HOST: Lorraine Ball | Digital Toolbox

Use all cap letters on your inbound button.  In this case it is ok to shout a little.

This week in our marketing minute, we are continuing our conversation about building a successful inbound marketing campaign.

Once someone starts to fill out your form, you want to be sure they take that last step to submit the form. But the truth is, people don’t actually like to submit. Although that is almost always the default choice when you build a form it is actually one of the least effective phrases you can use.   Here are some better choices

Use a word that commands action: click register, go or download

Use language that actually promises the benefit:  Get the case study, watch the video

The stronger and more compelling the language, the greater the chance that someone will actually finish the process.

And one final note, keep your call to action, short one to three words and use all caps. I know I know. It feels like you’re shouting when you use all caps. But you went to the trouble of driving someone to this page. You don’t want them to leave without filling out the form.
