Buttons are the best things when it comes to write short call to actions. Call to actions are used when you want your readers to take action on a particular thing. To make it powerful you use good pitch and strong words which is really good but as you know nowadays most of the readers don’t read the post line by line rather they scan them by reading the heading and subheadings.
In this situation, to make your CTA more visible you must use buttons because they grab the attention of your readers quickly and even more than your subheadings.
But the problem comes when you want to add buttons because it requires HTML/CSS knowledge and not all bloggers know how to write html/CSS codes and even someone knows, it takes time to code a button of your choice. To overcome this situation, many WordPress Plugins were developed which allow you to add buttons in your blog post and pages using shortcodes. At times remembering and configuring them might be difficult for newbies or non-tech bloggers.
