Our Experience with AddThis

AddThis is a social sharing tool that is commonly used by content marketers. Like ShareThis, AddThis features buttons that allow users to share your content on their own social media accounts. In addition to buttons for sharing your content, AddThis also offers follow buttons that enable users to follow you on social media platforms. You can customize AddThis’ sharing buttons and follow buttons to match the web design of your website.

Here’s an example of themed-out buttons:

The Benefits

  • Placement Control: AddThis provides a variety of placement options for how your widget appears on your website. Each of these placements–header, sidebar–have a slightly different design in order to best fit with your website layout.

  • Targeting Tools: In addition to buttons for sharing and following, AddThis can also help you create a “welcome bar” that appears when your user navigates to a specific page. This can be used to generate subscriptions, or redirect users to another section of your website.

  • Quick Integration: AddThis is incredibly simple to integrate, and can be up and running on your website in just a matter of minutes.

When Do We Recommend AddThis

AddThis is a convenient way to feature social media buttons for following and sharing on your website, without having to worry about configuring a custom display. We highly recommend AddThis to any website administrators who would like to make their content more accessible.
