Edit the call to action

The call to action is what you want people to do after engaging with your product content. It appears as a purple block with a Heading, small amount of text, and an action button.

  • If the product has been set up as a Referral product, this button will direct users to a link of your choice.
  • If the product has been set up as an Enquiry product, this button will launch an enquiry form.

The heading is a headline that inspires action and explains what the user can do. For example: Register for Free, Free 30 day trial, Order your _________ now.

The description should provide more information about the product or service and what users can expect when they click on the button. You might include key value propositions and incentives.

The button text is what will appear on the button. It should be strong, succinct and inspire action with a maximum of 20 characters.

If the product has been set up as a Referral product, enter the URL that will be opened when this button is clicked.
