Once your website is set up and your marketing materials are in progress, it’s normal to want to take a few shortcuts. It’s okay for you to save time and money while putting yourself out there, but one area you don’t want to short yourself in is call-to-actions.

In case you didn’t know, a call-to-action in advertising is a section of content that is intended to make a viewer or reader take action. This can be in the form of ‘Buy Now,’ ‘Click Here,’ or ‘Learn More.’ However, most people don’t realize that sending viewers to your social media is also a call-to-action.

In fact, social media icons are one call-to-action that is pertinent to get right the first time around. You want to link potential clients to your social media profiles so you can share useful information and let your target audience get to know you better. However, you don’t want to just use any old social media icons. You want the icons to be fresh and natural with your brand. You want your branding to be consistent.

A few quick tips:

  • Choose colors that are consistent with your brand.
  • Give credit (through an attribution/back link) as requested for individual vector images.
  • Place the icons strategically on your site and marketing materials so people see them and take action.

Not only can you include the social media icons in the header or footer of your website, you can also include them on your business cards, brochures, and banners. The opportunities are endless, and the great thing about it is that the more places your icons are, the more likely people are going to be to visit your social media sites. Many would call this a successful call-to-action, which could lead to conversions down the road.
