stock photos use

I’m sure you’ll agree:

Stock images are awkward…

Full of clichés…

And often make you snigger at any design featuring them, right?

But unless you can take better photos yourself or have someone who could create them for you, you’re bound to using stock images.

Because the alternative then is not to use any visuals at all (which, as I’m sure you’ll agree with me, isn’t really an option today).

But are all stock images bad? And is there any way to use generic stock photos without turning your lead magnet into an awkward thing to look at?

Yes, there is.

With a couple of simple tricks, you can turn almost any stock photo into an awesome visual for your eBook.

5 Call to Action Formulas That Will Make People Download Your eBook

call to action formulas

I’m sure you’ll agree with me on this:

Writing call to action buttons is WAY harder than it seems.

In fact, I’d say that putting together those couple of words intended to compel a person to act could be the hardest part of lead magnet promotion.

After all, you could use your lead magnet’s title as the headline and use subheading or chapter titles as benefits.

But you can’t reuse anything for the call to action trigger. Or write a generic one at that.

(Well, at least not if you want it to compel visitors to act, of course…)

These people are already too knowledgeable to respond to generic buttons like “Sign up to download the eBook,” “Free Download” or “Sign Up.

To convince them to act, you need to make a compelling case for them to do so.

So if you’re struggling with writing calls to actions that aren’t generic, then this post is for you.

I’m going to show you 5 call to action formulas guaranteed to make people download your lead magnet.
