It seems almost everyone has Facebook and Twitter links on their website these days, but how effective are they? If you only have a pretty little icon in the bottom corner of your website, you probably aren’t directing as much traffic to your social network profile as you think you are.
Users are humans after all, so while they respond well to visual objects, they process language commands even better. Try wording your social links with actionable terms like this, “Follow ABC Inc. on Twitter.” Get even more click-throughs with something like this, “You should follow ABC Inc. on Twitter now!” You’ll be surprised to see how many more followers, or fans, you collect!
