Amazing write-up! Excellent info as always Tahir! thanks so much.
Great post, Tahir. And I really like your image on social media statistics.
I am a big fan of the GetSocial Social Sharing Bottons for their super easy set up and many free options for networks and styles. They also offer floating sidebars.
As alternative to the PinIt plugin, I find WP Image Hover Lite plugin very useful, because it gives your readers more options to share your images instead of just Pinterest.
I prefer Better Click to Tweet as alternative to Click2Tweet for it’s easier handling. However, it is a very good plugin to encourage readers to share your post.
For automatically sharing blog posts on social media take a look at the Blog2Social plugin. It has powerful options for cross-promoting your posts across all popular social media networks in one easy step, with optionally customized posts for each network and an automatic scheduler for the best times to post. I really do recommend to tailor posts for the networks you are sharing to. Otherwise your posts tend to be robotic and you miss opportunities for engagement with your followers. The plugin is a big time saver for this task, especially for business blogs with many social networks to share their posts to.
I’d love to hear what you think.
Thanks for sharing your favorite plugins, Melanie. I’d love to use Image Hover Lite.
Nice article! I would also recommend to install the Kiwi Social Sharing WordPress Plugin. The tech guys of my webhost suggested this plugin to me and I found it very useful. You may consider adding it to the list 🙂
Hi, Great article Tahir. I am using open social share for social9, which is a free WordPress Social Sharing plugin, Light Weight and Responsive. I hope you will give it a try too as my team is using it for months as alternatives to paid sharing tools and things are flawless. 🙂
