  • The Internet banner and advertising industries have been around for quite a while, so marketers HAVE figured out what some of the best practices for calls-to-action are. Combining relevant search traffic with a great CTA will drive inbound leads!
  • If you don’t have web to lead then … GA click tracking
  • Each blog post acts as a landing page from a relevant search and each CTA provides a path to engage the company further.
  • Setting up onclick events to add a pageview will allow you to set up and monitor goals in your analytics package. This will allow you to monitor keywords and conversions, post titles and conversions, and even authors and conversions (adding author may take some additional work to capture in your analytics package).Leave CTAs up for enough time to gauge response (1,000 impressions or more) and continue rotating and testing your CTAs until you maximize response rates.
