Hi I'm wondering what people think the best practice is for linking call to action... I'll explain with some examples
Option 1: Main CTA (register) not linked, URL linked
Register and see our list of events at
Option 2: URL hidden, CTA all linked
To register and see our list of events click here
I don't know the stats on people not clicking "enable images & links" but it is something that is an issue with Option 2
[search keywords: link style, CTA, call to action, calls to action, hyperlink, click here, copy]
We always advise against using URLs as links because it can cause phishing/scam warnings in certain email clients (and we've seen a large uptick in these warnings lately). Any time you're sending an email through a system that tracks link clicks you'll want to steer away from URLs as link text and use descriptive text instead.
