- CTA (Call to Action) – It is a marketing term for any design to prompt an immediate response or encourage an immediate sale. A CTA most often refers to the use of words or phrases that can be incorporated into sales scripts, advertising messages, or web pages, which compel an audience to act in a specific way.
- CTR (Click-through Rate) – Click-through rate is the ratio of users who click on a specific link to the number of total users who view a page, email, or advertisement.
