    I've been using green on my site as the colour has positive connotations (in my mind at least).

    What colour do you use for call to action purposes and why?

    Depends on the site - sometimes you want it to clash, other times you don't. In the majority of cases, though, I'd say Red, Green, or Blue

    My website is for girls so I use a pink button. It matches the website and catches your eye.

    I use a flashing gif of red, aquamarine, and beige. Real attention getter, but that is just because it matches the flashing background as well, just at a faster frame rate...

    I tend to match the button to my brand; so if my primary color is Emerald Green, and my secondary colors are seafoam, pear, and canary, then my background would be Emerald green, so I wouldn't make my button like that, so instead, I would probably make the button seafoam bordered with canary, so it pops but it complimentary. That is the thing though, since I am focusing on building a brand, I am specific on primary and secondary colors use, so it always provides a clear brand message.

    A/B testing is the key. Try different colors and keep the most performing one.
