About This Section
A call to action is one of the most basic elements of any website, especially one focused around sales or sign-ups. The Text (with CTA) section helps focus the attention of the visitor on a single action that you want them to take, and provides a button that links directly to that action or activity. Unlike other CTA sections, this one focuses on text rather than images, using a strong headline and supporting copy to get your visitors to click that button.
This article covers the the text-focused Text (with CTA) section. If you want to build a call to action with more prominent use of images, or a multi-column layout, take a look at our articles on the Call to Action section or the Image & Text (with CTA) section.
Where to Use This Section

Text: The heading is the title for the entire section, and the subheading appears directly above or below the heading (depending on your Theme).
Button: Select which type of page to Link to, and then the specific Course, Bundle or Product you want the button to target. Edit the Button text as appropriate, and adjust the Button style if necessary.
Layout: You can remove top or bottom section padding if there appears to be too much space between this and adjacent sections. Adjust the Column layout between one and two columns to get the look you want. The Heading alignment controls how the heading and subheading are aligned in the section.
In Vogue themes, you can also set the Background color to your theme's primary or secondary color.
