In this post, we’ll list CTAs (call to action) for you to use in your blog post. Making money can help you make blogging your priority, and is especially necessary if you’re using a blog as a way to promote your business or a particular product.
Okay, bloggers. We need to talk.
We need to talk about money.
BUT WAIT – before you click away in a hurry, we need to talk about YOU making money. (Caught your attention, didn’t I?)
So often, we see bloggers creating great and engaging content, building their readership and really connecting with folks one-on-one. These same bloggers aren’t linking to their social media pages, to products they talk about – or to their email lists!! They’re leaving money on the table by not inviting their readers to join them on other platforms. Fun fact: It takes 7 different engagements for a customer to eventually buy from you. And honey, you’ll get to 7 a lot more quickly if you are engaging with them across platforms.
To help you with your CTAs, we’ve listed specific phrases you can use (below). Be sure to join the So You Wanna Blog Facebook Group, for more blogging tips and inside info about how to blog!
Get people following you!
Below you’ll find call to action phrases to use to encourage readers to follow you on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram. To make things more readable, we’re going to pretend we’re writing a blog post about tulip season.
Note: Normally, people put a call to action at the end of a blog post, so try to put these at the beginning. Do a little A/B testing and see which method gets you more signups.
