Humans are visual creatures and it is theorised that colour plays a huge role in influencing our purchasing behaviour. Marketers have found that the colour of the call-to-action (CTA) button has a great effect on conversion, with different colours evoking different emotions, memories, and so on.
Colour has been used quite effectively by some brands to strengthen their user appeal. For example, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr use the colour blue predominantly because it evokes a trustworthy, professional feeling.
