It’s no secret that SEO has changed a lot recently. The days of traditional SEO and a keyword-only approach are dead, but what’s taken its place? If you’re wondering how Mopro is getting you found (or can get you found), then read on. Spoiler alert: Our entire platform is built to make sure you get found and chosen online.

6 Tips for Creating Compelling Website CTA's
By Brianne Slabach

temp-post-image


Your website’s CTAs are a big deal. After landing on your site, your call-to-action buttons tell visitors what action you want them to take next – whether that’s to Sign Up, Call Now, or do something completely different.

There’s good CTAs and there’s bad ones, so we’ve put together some tips to make yours more clickable.



1. Make them buttons.


CTA buttons should look like buttons. Not hyperlinks, not floating text. Now’s not the time to reinvent the wheel. Now’s the time to show people what they’re familiar with. And that&r...

But what makes an email subject good or bad? We’ve put together our top 10 tips. Follow these and get ready for better open rates!
