3. Keep it simple - One Goal At A Time.
I say one for a reason. We don’t want to bombard the reader with too many call to actions. Keep It Simple - One Goal At A Time. If you’re aiming for newsletter sign-ups then only ask them to sign up for your newsletter, not sign up for the newsletter, join your Facebook group, like your Facebook page, follow you on Instagram, and so on and so on…
Keep your content focused on the finish line and keep make it impossible for them to be distracted by anything other than your message.

5. Keep it Simple and Concise.
You need to clearly explain what the reader needs to do (i.e. Join Us, call now for a free consultation, buy now, etc)
Make it clear what the customer will get by responding (i.e. Free Social Media Audit, 15% off coupon code, book your free 15 minute consultation, etc)
Focus on benefits of taking action (i.e. save money now, get help now, etc)
Offer something of value to the reader - bonus points if you add a deadline.(i.e. Free for the next 24 hours)
