The basic goal of social media is… well, to be social!
We use social media platforms to stay connected with others and share updates about our lives. Over time, social media has evolved to also be a source of entertainment, information, and shopping. And as a business owner or entrepreneur, you use social media to build a brand and make money.
But while we might be spending time on these platforms to make money, it’s also important to remember that sociability is still at its core. That’s why everything you post should have a call to action.
I like this definition from Investopedia: “A call to action (CTA) is a marketing term that refers to the next step a marketer wants its audience or reader to take.”
Of course, that action can mean asking your audience to buy your product or service, or to take the next step in their purchasing journey – like signing up for your freebie.
That action can also be a call for engagement – like, comment, share, save, tag – so that your social media content becomes a two-way conversation between you and the person enjoying your content. This is where you can have fun with social media! Calls to action can include questions that ignite conversation.
When I write social media posts for my clients, I’m always conscious about what action(s) I want the reader to take. Because I’ve compiled various lists of CTAs to assist me with writing, it only makes sense for me to put them all in one spot for YOU to enjoy and use!
