Custom Calls-to-Action can make all the difference in how many leads you get from your inbound marketing efforts.
You are probably familiar with the buttons you see when surfing the web that offer you something related to the product or service that you are surfing to find info on.
Those buttons you push are called: Calls-to-Action (CTAs). Usually the offers are educational, at least they should be, and when you push the button you go to a landing page with a form to fill so you can give your contact info and get the free offer.
