What is a call to action (CTA)?

A call to action (CTA) is an instruction to an email recipient that encourages a specific, measurable action.

For example, you would use a CTA when you want your subscriber to sign up for a newsletter or make a purchase. The CTA typically uses phrases such as click here or buy now to encourage your subscribers to take action in an email campaign or on a website.
