How do you put those wonderful, floating social sharing and following buttons on your site? There are many, many plugins for WordPress users, but Addthis promises to be super easy to deploy- even for newbies.
Check out this introduction video:
Some people shy away from using these types of services because they are told to “copy and paste” html code into the body section of the website. I admit, I have done it before but I still hate having to mess with that code stuff in my site. If you install the plugin into your site, you should not have to install the code. However, if you want to do it the company has an easy-to-follow video showing you how to do it here.
They offer a Pro service for less than $20 per month. However, their free version is enormously sufficient. Here is what this plugin offers:
- Sharp Analytics about your visitors.
- Ability to create beautiful exit banners to refer traffic that leaves your site.
- Show related content with images at various page location options.
- Promote affiliate offers in a variety of ways and track the strength of your promotional campaigns
Tons, tons more! If you have a website or a blog that you manage, consider using Addthis.
