The importance of having the twitter follow button & facebook like box can never be under estimated.
Adding social media follow buttons is one of the first things I do after installing WordPress. You know, I’m a social media addict. I use twitter & facebook to connect with the genius minds from around the globe and it’s a great fun. And having a social media widget on your blog sidebar or footer makes it very easy for you to get more followers, friends or subscribers.
These days almost all the themes come with social media widgets, but does those widgets really work well. I mean most of the themes come with fancy design widgets and do nothing to increase the followers / fans. From last few weeks I’ve been doing split testing on different niche sites and found that widget, which has all the social media & subscription options do pretty well.
When I think about a widget that has all the social media & subscription options , only one plugin comes to my mind and that is WP MashSocial.
Results of WP Mash-social Plugin
Many of you have been asking about the conversation rate, so here’s few details:
- I got 27% more email subscribers though the widget
- Got more Twitter followers & Facebook likes
- The Plugin has all the social media & subscription options.
Features that I’d like to See in the Plugin
Pinterest Button integrated in the widget.
- The ability to integrate email providers like Aweber, Mailchimp, GetResponse, etc.
- Option for adding more social media buttons like Blokube, My SEO Community etc for small business bloggers.
I did wrote an short review of a similar plugin, few months ago, but that plugin is freaking ridiculous & has few hidden links. The plugin is no more available in the WordPress Respo, though.
