A call to action
A CTA can be used in a range of different ways whether it be to increase engagement or direct people to your website. It is probably one of the most important things when it comes to a caption.
For engagement ask your followers opinions on things, ask them a question, get them to comment their experience’s don’t forget to add the ‘comment down below’ to make it a CTA.
For website clicks say things like ‘check out our new product on site now’ ‘head to our website to see’ ‘check out our new blog at …’
