Using AddThis Smart Layers

Yesterday AddThis CEO Ramsey McGrory introduced Smart Layers, an easier way to get more traffic and followers with one piece of code. In this post I’ll go into a little more detail about how to get Smart Layers, what to need to do if you already use AddThis tools (hint: nothing!) and some simple ways to customize Smart Layers for your site or blog.

New Follow Buttons, Including Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram

Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram and FourSquare have all been added as options in the AddThis Follow tools. They join the already available Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Flickr, LinkedIn and Vimeo buttons. It is now easier than ever to promote your various social channels on your site and encourage visitors to follow your brand.

As with all our tools, we want to give you insight into how the buttons are performing, so make sure you sign up for the AddThis analytics to see which channels your users are going to and even more than that – which pages on your site are actually generating the followers.

If you have any questions, please feel free to head to our support page and we’ll help you get some answers.
