Convert Searches to Sales – From CTAs to Conversions
CTAs Are the Bridge Between Searches and Sales!
Google Posts allows businesses to share messages directly with their customers. As Google Posts will show up in the local results on Google Search and Maps, it is indeed a free advertising tool for conversions!
Besides types of posts and content, CTAs are also a critical part of Google Posts. From branding to touchpoint engagement, everything you do is to ensure potential customers would eventually become paying customers.

So that’s how it works: a nice post on Google with a strong CTA helps you reach your ultimate goal – convert searches to sales. In other words, CTAs are the bridge between searches and sales!
CTAs That Work (and Don’t Work)
So what is the magic spell that CTAs cast on customers?
Marketing efforts revolve around providing value. So does your CTA button: it should keep offering value. CTAs are the bridge between searches and sales, yet you cannot force people to cross that bridge unless they know what is waiting for them on the other side.
A good CTA is the one that brings value to the table. It tells what customers will receive; therefore, it offers value.
Here are a few things to keep in mind with your CTAs.
- Correlate: There are different types of posts on Google. Make sure your CTAs strongly correlate with your type of post.
- Appeal: Determine both what your users want and what they avoid. Address any potential problems and satisfy customers with your CTAs.
- Stand out: No need for fancy backgrounds, but ensure your CTAs need to stand out. After all, it should match the overall aesthetic of your brand.
- Guide: Make your CTAs action-driven and specific – “Sign-up for 2 free months” or “Download this SEO guideline.” Make CTAs what they’re about – act.
- Bombard users with CTAs or spread them too thin. (Balance!)
- Put a washed-out white CTA button on a white background.
- Be too naive with “Download this” or “Check it out.”
