The Best Way To Frame Your Call For Artists’ Call To Action
Call for artists are most effective when they include a single call to action. A call to action is what you want an artist or crafter to do. It can include clicking a link, opening a document, looking at a picture, leaving a comment, and so on.
Side Arts includes a call to action after the first paragraph of text in each call for artists promotion.
Having clear language, consistent wording, and uncluttered formatting encourages qualified artists to apply.
- Clear language helps the reader understand what you want them to do. Be direct. For example, “Click here to apply”
- Use consistent working. Avoid flipping between application, registration, order form, and so on.
- Uncluttered formatting draws the readers eye to what you want them to do. Avoid small links which may be easy to miss.
Call To Action Formatting Tips
The best format is a single hyperlink to an application near the top of the page. Buttons and alternate text formatting/colors are helpful as well.
This has proven to be the clearest format and most effective for attracting qualified applicants. Digital application links are preferred over email addresses because they streamline the process for the applicant and client.
There are many good reasons for doing so:
