Why You Should Create Buttons In WordPress Pages?

There are a couple of reasons why we create buttons:

  • We create buttons because humans are psychologically programmed to click on buttons,
  • You probably heard of the red button syndrome, where people constantly click on red buttons because they want to see what’s going to happen,
  • We create buttons to sell our affiliate products by adding different text like Get it now, Buy now, Get instant access, etc.
  • We use buttons to get our website readers to complete their actions on our articles. They can get value from our website, click the button, and purchase from the affiliate sites.
  • We use buttons because they stand out from the background of our website.

Adding buttons to your affiliate websites helps increase your affiliate sales because it stands out on the Page. When you tell people to want they will get when they click on the button, you can literally skyrocket your sales.
