Call-to-Action NOW - User needs to feel and understand Buttons

We do not talk here about standards: Sign up, Login, Send etc.

We talk here about more catchy phrases, which need to stand out and drive traffic.


BIG TRAFFIC! NOW, ASAP.


As our product or service is NEW (or part of our website needs be promoted) and we need to bring new audience, engage, keep them, let them purchase and off course spread the good word about us. ย ๐Ÿ˜Ž Otherwise we die...โ˜ ๏ธ...DIE...DIE...DIE...and none will even care. ๐Ÿ’€


Yes, products and service, websites and apps do die. Often, very fast, just right now many of brilliant ideas and also not so brilliants die.


PERMANENTLY. So think before you call the CALL-TO-ACTION buttons.


Because Ideas die if they are not done well from start! Scary, well, that's part of Life.

Our Life and Product Life. Death might come sooner than you think.


SO THINK TWICE or EVEN 11 times before you choose the words!

Yes, I do like 11:11 and see it often. Other numbers combinations too.

Like 555, 666, 222, 888, and so on...but that's for another Once Upon a Time Not Always Happy ever after Story...๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคด๐Ÿป


So Let's skip this and go for the real MEAT! Please, I want the Content about CTA!! ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Do not be so needy, you bloody nerd...give me break...๐Ÿ˜‚

Ok, here we go...


WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO ASK BEFORE YOU NAME IT!!!!


How to call the Call-to-Action buttons?

Have you ever asked yourself?


Have you met with:

User dissatisfaction? Repetition? Boredom?

Have you asked USERS? well...because those who ask find out that calling something what suppose to be so easy is sometimes a struggle. Even Users do not know how to call it and if you use the same CTA names, they feel bored and they do not want to be called to your desire action by the same word as they find the way around it and skip it, just like that, because they are USERS, the big mysterious CREATURES called again YOUR USERS. ๐Ÿ˜‘


Btw, this content again is most likely not when User already wants to use certain product or service, but when you promote something new to the users and it the flip of seconds they say to YOU NOT THIS TIME HUNNY BUNNY, YOU DIDN'T CATCH ME... ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ™ƒ


Or even worts they DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE YOUR CTA. ๐Ÿฅบ

Sadly, many they do not even notice. HARD REALITY OF POOR UX.

Especially if other stuff as Wireframes, Colour Palette, etc. are not designed well!

Simply you UX/UI sucks!


So how to catch the attention when Users do not know NOTHING about your product?


or


you want to refresh your service? and design something really good to really make Users to choose the action and pay more attention, not just click here and there...or worst skip even if the content/products are really good!


So how to call it to avoid the unwanted, unnoticed trend of CTA, which are not CTA at all...๐Ÿฅด

if they do not call the action, which you want them to do, they simply are not call to action, but well Call to AVOIDANCE...


Poor us Designers, IDEA makers! Responsible for so much!

Bend knees to all of you... ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ and to myself. ๐Ÿ›


Now Let's started with A BABY.

Are you father, are you mother?

No?

Start to make it, Now?...Not, the babies ... not now, you are reading!


But Start to Think as Parents do. ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ


hmmm?? What does she talking about...? ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ


Ok, here we go...again here we go? is this sprint? ๐Ÿ˜†


Let's cuddle Babies and there names and why they actually matter!


Choosing Buttons Names is quite similar to choosing a baby name or fining the meaning behind it. You want to be original but at the same understood and not miss guided if it is a girl or boy, has to be right, easy to memorise but also catchy.


That's so simple, for what is this big opening?


You know why, just for fun, because writing brings me pleasure, satisfaction and it is a fun expression of millions thoughts in the brain and to write not in a standard way, just because...that's it.


And below this picture, you will find the really cool examples by someone much more brilliant and me and you, so just simply scroll down, open the link and learn, as I do... ๐Ÿ˜‰


ENJOY IT! and do not complain, that you didn't find out what you were looking for on this page.

I cannot stand this. Even, if I do complain myself...๐Ÿคฃ


Just simply scroll and have a good lecture and apply in your next project.

WRITING NOT NECESSARY HAS TO BE GOOD.

IT MIGHT BE JUST DIFFERENT. JUST LIKE ART.


and That's why I choose below article about CTA as the one, which I do find interesting because IT IS DIFFERENT, not STANDARD and also FUN. All below CTA examples are not boring, they are catchy and that's all about in those paragraphs above...


  • TO JUST STAND OUT

  • BE ORIGINAL REGARDLESS THE COMMON STANDARDS

  • BE DIFFERENT FOR PURPOSE OF BEING DIFFERENT EVEN IF MIGHT NOT WORK FOR MAJORITY IT WILL WORK FOR THOSE WHO SUPPOSE TO

  • TO BE FUN

  • TO BE INTERESTING

  • NOT NECESSARY SHORT

  • NOT NECESSARY WHAT YOU WANTED ME TO BE


DEAL WITH IT. GOOD BYE. ๐Ÿค  #uxdesign #uxdesigner #uxdesigners #uxuidesigner #calltoaction

PS.: Just to remind you, I am designer by little D. Not writer. I write for FUN, as I am bored also, I do not consider myself as Writer, Expert or Thinker, or the one which knows all answers in UX?UI DESIGN, or I do not even think it is funny for you, but it is funny for me, and that's what matters at least in this "article." So gOD bLESS yOU and Hallelujah!


But I do know, that I DO GOOD DESIGN ask my clients, if you disbelieve...๐Ÿค“


Just FORGIVE instead of HATE! ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป
