Facebook Call to Action Button - Improvements NeededUnfortunately, the wording of the Facebook Call to Action button is missing the mark for some pages. Currently, page admins can select from the following actions:
- Book Now
- Contact Us
- Use App
- Play Game
- Shop Now
- Sign Up
- Watch Video
Facebook highlighted online retailer Dollar Shave Club, as an example of a page using the call-to-action button to successfully boost its customer acquisition efforts. However, other page admins found none of the seven calls-to-action available suit their page.
Would the available calls to action benefit your page?
