20 Social Media Call-To-Actions That Actually Work

Having an effective call-to-action (CTA) is the difference between a good post that people read and a GREAT post that drives people to act.

Every social media post, blog post, and website should have a clear goal that you want the reader to complete. The goal might be to follow you, tag a friend, click your link, buy a product, or signup for your newsletter. Either way, you want to give the user a clear CTA to drive engagement and conversion.

If you want action, you have to ask for it.

Pro Tips To Get The Attention You Need

  • It's all about "stopping the scroll", so look for ways to draw the eye. CTA's work best when there is white space around it so it doesn't flow into the rest of your post. Use an emoji like the 👉 or ➡️, or a simple ----->. You can also capitalize the text.

  • Make it easy. Include the link you want them to click on or the article to share right in the post for Facebook & LinkedIn, and the bio for Instagram.

  • Clearly point out the benefit to the user. An easier way to make dinner? Fun night out with their partner? A tip to improve their business or a cute animal pic to make them laugh? Make it easy for your reader to find and understand the benefit of reading your content.
