A strategically designed website is critical for turning your visitors into customers. However, if you’re struggling with conversions, the problem may be due to ineffective Calls To Action (CTA), such as irritating pop-ups or hard-to-find buttons.

The good news is that floating action buttons can help. By staying visible no matter where visitors are the page, these ‘sticky’ buttons can boost interactions and conversions. Fortunately, the Buttonizer Smart Floating Action Button plugin makes adding them quick and easy.

In this post, we’ll explain what floating action buttons are and their benefits. Then we’ll introduce you to the Buttonizer plugin, its unique features and offerings, and how you can use it to improve your WordPress site. Let’s get started!

An Introduction to Floating Action Buttons

Floating action buttons, or ‘sticky’ buttons, are widgets that appear in the right-hand corner of a website. They are a powerful and flexible alternative to traditional CTAs that can help increase interactions and boost conversions.

Static links and buttons can often be missed or get buried beneath the fold of the webpage. However, floating action buttons can be displayed prominently on your site even when visitors scroll through the page.

These buttons can serve a wide variety of purposes. Some of the most common use cases include:

  • Click to Call/Email
  • Click to Chat
  • Social Sharing
  • Open pop-up form

Whether you want to encourage your visitors to share on social media, visit a specific URL, or initiate a conversation, adding sticky buttons to your website can help you do that. You can even add multiple actions to a single button, maximizing its value. Plus, as a WordPress user, you have the advantage of quickly adding these buttons through a single plugin.
