Try out different labels for your buttons and measure in Google analytics which buttons are most commomly clicked after landing on the page. ‘Virtual Tour’, ‘Free Demo’ or’ Online Demo’ can generate very different results, so try out all your options.
4. Ask a compelling question or communicate clearly the benefits for the visitor. In any case the visitor must have the experience ‘there’s something in for them’. A site without a benefit for surfers is doomed to fail.
