"I agree with Barry. Despite the fact that it seems intuitive to simply click one of the links you mention, digital marketing experts tell us a clear call to action is necessary, such as "shop here", "buy now", etc. "

Barry Shandler replied to Terri Einer's discussion I'm interested in purchasing...Rant
"I didn't look but does your picture say "to buy this picture click here".  Perfectly clear and precise.    If it  doesn't I most likely would just click "delete" and not send a question in return."
