The Famous Addthis, the leaders in social sharing platforms recently released their very unique addthis pro feature which is just so amazing that addthis clearly beats it's fellow competitors in both social sharing and recommendation widgets. The features are so unique and multiplatform compatible that your social sharing will truly go off the charts. Well in this post I will make sure to get you all the details of the pro feature which we tested the early beta version on request by addthis for chosen few. So lets get started with revealing addthis pro's amazing features.
The New addthis Pro is the upgraded version of the addthis smart layers which gives you lots of premium features especially the recommendation widgets which has added a new feather to addthis social sharing status.
Addthis Pro allows you to add/remove features to your addthis code on your site without having to change it again and again. Just put the addthis activation code once on your site and you can easily customize the features from the addthis dashboard. Also if you already have addthis installed then even better because they too will work under the same dashboard and most of all your changes will be visible on all sites wherever you have used your addthis code with your addthis generated id. Below are the features that you can add using addthis pro dashboard.
Addthis pro is basically the same addthis smart layers integration but comes with some cool stuffs like the social share buttons with inbuilt counter as visible in the left side of the below displayed image. Plus the recommendation widget on the right hand side which displays your most popular content and related content.You can also change their positions as well.
Once you activate your addthis pro then you get the ability to change your social widgets in whatever way you want via the addthis pro dashboard, especially the tool gallery which allows six amazing features with three pro features included which would include the social icons with counters and recommendation widgets. Remaining features are same as the smart layers.
The best thing about addthis pro is that it integrates with any site seamlessly and also gives priority to web pages which get lost simply because they are not a blog. This is how the addthis pro looked like on our website, pretty cool right ! :D
Addthis pro is not just sharing but giving you the perfect analytics too target your audience, the social shares, the demographic, follows and almost anything related to user engagement on your site is visible under the summary tab. The analytics not only include single domain but all the domains where you have installed the addthis pro.
Another coolest feature about addthis pro is that you can promote or feature contents in the recommendation widget, in short the power to display or recommend personalized content to your visitors. Most of all the promoted content can be from any website and the content gets to display in all the domains where you have installed addthis pro. Also addthis pro allows you to hide content which you don't want to display in your recommendations like the contact button or archives etc.
Well that's how it looks like! I promoted my art galleries via the addthis pro recommended content feature and that how it came out, on the right side recommendation widget on the top, the one with the sketch of Angelina Jolie with a feature tag. This certainly drives traffic to your featured contents.
But as you might have already guessed it's a Pro feature so it's not free. :( However you can always enjoy some of the features via the basic addthis pro feature which allows you to have the what's next recommended widget, recommended content in the footer, social share and social follow buttons. On the other side addthis pro allows you to change and customize the features without having to change the code again and again, the recommended content and promoted content feature. Addthis pro costs $12 per month for 5 domains and in case you have more than 5 domains then it will cost you $2 more per domain.
Hope you enjoyed the addthis pro review. In case you were wondering how addthis pro would look like on your website then no worries addthis allows a 14 days free trial for the addthis pro and I would suggest using it efficiently to drive amazing traffic using the pro feature. Now don't be selfish and share the news with your friends and family. :D
Now don't be selfish and share! share ! share and addthis to your likes ! :D
