Button / CTA text

Sentence case, e.g. “Request a demo,” “View more” or “Check it out.”
Don’t use punctuation in links or buttons, unless it’s a question.
Do make CTA visitor-focused, action-oriented and specific.

When to use title case

  • Headlines or sub-headlines that are simply product categories, product names, product feature/tool names or brand names (This is very rare on the B2B.Autotrader.com site)
  • News articles and blog post titles (This aligns with PR’s style.)
  • Third-level navigation items and most footer items, as noted above
  • Form labels, form fields
  • Tab headers
