Can I use big red buttons?

Citation Natalie Frisknecht

“5. Large Red Buttons Rule”

Interesting negative article with lively forum debate on use of red buttons

Article on call to action best practice – some of the red button examples are striking – ‘primary’ action button should be a different/stronger contrast + increased size

“Button Colour Test: Red beats Green”

Discussion on green = ‘go’ and red = ‘stop’ action buttons

Conversion rate lift of 34% after changing action button from green to red

More counter argument from Grokdotcom – I think these people are red Nazis

Button colour test results – the red button won here, but only because the other option had ALL red buttons and there was less stand-out

Performable tests – another article
