    Ok….. getting some buttons done up and wondering.. is…

    “Get Free Quote Now”

    OK?

    or should it be..

    “Get a Free Quote Now”

    I prefer the first, but I guess it isn’t “proper”.

    Thanks!

    In my opinion, “Get Free Quote Now” makes you sound like all the offshore companies that spam me everyday.

    I’d add the “a”, or even “get your free quote now” to make it a little more personal.

    Or what about “Would you like your free quote now?” and a “Yes” button to link?

    I would use “Get your free quote now” – although is it an instant quote or will it take some time to send to them? Only reason I ask is, I can’t stand websites that say “Get an instant quote” but actually you have to request it and it takes a while for them to respond….

    Just a thought…

    A copywriter cannot answer this question because even they are blown away by what converts the most (often, it’s the “unlikely” one)

    Just test it.

    I’ll just add that using the word “quote” is very wise. You will end up with el cheapos and time vampires.

    Have you considered offering an “audit” and charging for it? You will attract the serious clients, make some money and make more if they decide to use your service.

    best part is you will make more with less time and work with those who are a pleasure to deal with.
