How to Add Call to Actions with Button to WordPress Sites

A Call to action (CTA) is an instruction to your website readers, visitors or audience created to provoke an immediate response from them usually using an imperative verb that forms a command or request such as “Sign up Now”, “Learn More” or “Download Now!” etc.

Note: when the CTA button is clicked, it is counted as a conversion and as a result, a success message is displayed the next time users who clicked the button encounter the CTA message again. If you will love to display the CTA regardless of whether it has been closed (incase of lightbox, notification bar and slide-in optins) or the button has been clicked, or better still hide it altogether, then the state after conversion feature is for you. It’s also worth noting that activating test mode or setting the success cookie to 0 (zero) prevents button clicks from being counted as a conversion thus causing the CTA message even after button click.
