Create an Animated GIF
The left-hand portion of this image was at the top of one of my blog posts. Even though it said, “click here”, only one person clicked on it. By combining that image into an animated GIF, I am hoping to increase my click-through rate.The above animation is telling people to click in a much more powerful way than the still picture ever could. If you are into online marketing at all, it is important to learn how to make animated GIFs.
The purpose of the above animation is to create more calls to action (CTAs). A good animated GIF can increase the CTAs without being too distracting.
