2. Correct use of words and language

At the moment of creation for your call to action, the imperative language works very well, that is, the one who directs an order, for example: "Buy now", "Click on", "Subscribe", "Register now". 

It is very important not to use colloquial language continuously in your publication, it is common to find such a tool in most CTAs, and we do not want yours to go unnoticed, make sure to maintain a professional, friendly and persuasive language.

3. Users and followers are your priority

The goal of CTA is to get your readers, followers, or audience to interact by making them feel like you’re talking directly to them. 

The continued use of the pronoun "you" and the possessive adjective "you" can make them feel identified and recognized, and as a result, generate more interactions with your content.
