On my website , http://www.simpler-life.com/ (which doesn't have an awful lot on just yet) I have as my cta a button that at the moment says "Contact me". Now, at the moment I'm not pushing for sales so much more gathering interest but I'm wondering what text would be more appropriate then the generic "contact me".

Also the design of the site doesn't really lend itself to anything more wordy really. I'm kinda stuck or am I over thinking this?

Cheers!

I reckon you're over thinking it mate.

 

"Contact me", "Get in touch" etc etc are all fine CTA's. IT really depends on how you wanna come across.

"Get in touch" or "Find out more" are two of the most used amenable versions

Cheers guys, I think "Get in touch" sounds better. 

 

"Fling me yo digits bruv"

This has potential ;)

Considering the business offering, I think 'get in touch' is a good way to go. Maybe even "let's talk". As friendly and conversational as possible. 'Contact Me' sounds a little stiff to my ears. 

 

A good way to settle on the right 'feel' for your copy is to make a list of all the people whose attention you're trying to capture. Imagine what you would say to them face to face. This is the tone of voice you should write your copy in. Once you get it, everything should flow pretty easily.

Cool photography mate. Very organic. Loving it.

 

I'm guessing you like Henri Cartier-Bresson etc. ?

Cheers mate, I realised that I had already written "get in touch" on my About page. I then said both out loud and it sounded more natural than "Contact me".

As you are not willing to use the conventional contact me, so I would suggest you to use "Get in Touch". It looks cool.

It is theoretically possible to choose a “perfect” color: one that’s culturally and demographically appropriate for your target audience, and contextually appropriate for your brand. Conversion increases if we optimize our page for the target audience.
