A call-to-action (CTA) is an engaging button or link that you place on your website to drive prospective customers to convert to leads through landing page forms. There are many different types of CTAs. They range from offering a free download to linking to a document to enticing you to fill out a form.

You will want to place your CTA on a blog in a location where it is easily visible and where it makes sense for someone to click on it. For example, you might put a CTA to download a free ebook under a post that describes strategies for using your product. Once you have determined where you would like to put your CTA, follow the instructions to learn how to add them to a blog.
