Call to action Strategy
Call to action is a way of telling your blog visitors to fulfill your goal. Call to action tells the site visitor exactly what to do when the blog owners offers a product or service.
The attractive the call to action is, the more the chances of conversion. Where you place the call to action also matters.

Pop-ups is also a way of telling your site visitors to fulfill your goals. Pop-up should be timed and show some important eye catching message, however, the message should not be too much as it will be boring to your site visitors.
In my opinion, pop-ups should be the first thing that comes up whenever someone navigates to your blog or website. Don’t make the pop-up time longer than expected.
Give out the most important information and provide a link for the full details.
A pop-up can be about anything like joining the blog social media pages (example facebook fan page or twitter follow link), freebies, adverts and so on.
Provide a case study
This is vital to your success. Case study simply tells your client what you have done in the pass and these will serve as a proof to the clients that they’re not going to buy the product or service blindly.
Make the case study exciting and simple. Include pictures, videos and audio to make it more exciting to your clients. Encourage your clients to share the case study with their friends on social media.
Some people always forget this, but it’s really important. With tons of information around, people want to know what others say about your product or service and most often make decision from that.
Testimonials are your client’s written statement describing the how your product or service help them. Display those testimonials on your blog and also tell your clients to share it with their friends on social media.
Testimonials build confidence and makes people to believe in what you’re offering, because they can see the result from other people.
Provide email sign-up
An email sign up enables the website owner builds a list by collecting their names and email. The sign owner then uses the list to build relationship and to fulfill future business goals. Using your list should be with a serious caution. Don’t always send information that contains sales pitch always.
