A/B Testing Idea #99 - Leverage the power of visual cues such as imagery to focus attention towards your call-to-action
Using clean, clear imagery is a great way to draw attention to your Call-to-Action (CTA). As in the example above, adding an additional simple visual stimulus that stands out through colour or another visual difference (shape, size etc.) will help ensure the customer's eye is drawn to the desired place.
Equally, making sure there isn't an excess of information or an overload of visual stimuli will help keep the CTA as the primary focus.
