The need for a call to action always remains, your business will do so much more business if your clients know when they need to buy from you. This is where a call to action needs to be a part of all your marketing efforts so you can maximize your return.

Use a subtle link as you call to action – this subtle link can send people where you would like them to go on your site to make a purchase. Social media is a powerful tool for this as if you are wanting people to like your facebook page then all you need is to allow them a simple link and they can go straight there.
