107 Call to Action Examples You Can Steal Now 

by Ceillie Clark-Keane in January 5th, 2021

Every once in a while, I notice myself hitting a writing rut. My blog posts titles have all been done before. My tagline options all sound the same. My calls to action are forgettable. My introductions get repetitive. (Too meta?) 

It’s easy to fall into this rut—it’s much harder to jolt yourself out of it and bring your copy back to life.

Your call to action is probably the most high-stakes copy you have, so you can’t afford to get stale or boring here. That’s why we put together this huge list of all the best CTAs we’ve seen around—to give over a 100 call to action examples that you can use and make your own whenever you need them. So read through or bookmark for later just in case, or even both. 

Let’s get into it.  

What is a call to action?

A call to action is the copy that prompts users to take an action. It’s a simple definition, but the stakes are incredibly high—you need your calls to action, or CTAs, to effectively direct and motivate users to convert. 

That means the language that you use needs to be clear, and you should communicate the post-click value. Often, these CTAs are limited by space, appearing on a button or pop-up, so being clear and compelling can be a challenge.

Here’s an example of a call to action on Unstack’s site:

cta from Unstack: "Try It Free"

On the homepage above, “Try it free” is the CTA, which appears on a pink button. We’re not going to be getting into button colors in this guide, but we’re skeptical of any one-button-color-fits-all pronouncements. Make sure to A/B test anything, including your copy.

The best call to action examples

There are common CTAs that you’ll recognize on the list below, and that’s because sometimes standard and expected is effective. There are also lots of call to action examples that surprised us with engaging language, super-specific actions, and more. So take a look and learn from these—take these examples and make them your own. 

These are the best CTAs we’ve seen around the internet, broken into the relevant categories so that you can use this as a guide whenever you need CTA inspiration. Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Website call to action examples
  • Ecommerce call to action examples
  • Content and blog call to action examples
  • Video call to action examples
  • Podcast call to action examples
  • Webinar and event call to action examples
  • Sales call to action examples

Now, to the CTAs.

Website call to action examples
