Block party! Check out the new Call-To-Action Block!

A new block has just landed in Atomic Blocks version 1.1.0! We’re excited to announce the Call-To-Action Block. We now have eight awesome blocks available for the Gutenberg editor. Let’s take a quick look at some features of the Call-To-Action Block.

What is a “call to action?”

In marketing, a call to action (or a CTA) is an instruction to the audience designed to provoke an immediate response, usually using an imperative verb such as “call now”, “find out more” or “visit a store today”. In web design, a CTA is usually accompanied by actionable text and a button to lead visitors to the action you want them to take. Maybe you want your visitors to sign up for a newsletter, visit a feature page, or contact you for details about a product. The Call-To-Action Block in Atomic Blocks will help you do just that!

A quick video demo

As seen in the demo above, the Call-To-Action block makes it really easy to add a compact, wide or full-width call to action to your site. Using the included block options, you can change the font sizes, background color, button color, and more. It’s really easy to customize the CTA block to fit your content.

To get started with the new Call-To-Action block, update Atomic Blocks to the latest version, 1.1.0. You can find the block by typing “cta” or “call to action” in the block inserter. If you don’t have Atomic Blocks yet, you can download the plugin on our homepage to get the Call-To-Action block and seven more handy blocks.

If you haven’t had a chance to get started with Gutenberg yet, now is the perfect time. We’ve written a Beginner’s Guide to Gutenberg post to help you learn about the new editor.

We’re excited to see what kind of things you use the Call-To-Action block for! Please drop us a comment below with your feedback about the new block.

  1. Wow, love the possibilities Gutenberg will bring. And you’re getting ahead with Atomic Blocks. The CTA block will make promotions so much easier and looks great out of the box.

    1. Hi Scottio,

      We don’t have a CTA popup function just yet, but it’s definitely something we’re looking at. We’ll have all kinds of blocks in the coming months so stay tuned!
