We’ve been busy at AddThis HQ rolling out new features to help you get the most out of all our tools. To keep you in the loop so you don’t miss anything, here is the rundown of the latest and greatest:
We just released two additional placement positions for Audience Targeting tools to give your site more customization options. These additional placements will appear as a small overlay that pop up after your visitors begin scrolling down the page.
Today, we’re excited to introduce the ability to export any emails captured through AddThis Audience Targeting tools as a .CSV. Since we launched Audience Targeting in December of last year, we’ve repeatedly been asked to add specific email platform integrations. So in an effort to make our Audience Targeting tools as effective as possible for all users, you can now create email lists through the Audience Targeting rule creator, house your collected email addresses in this list, and then export it as a CSV and import it into any email service you currently use.
We’re excited to announce that Audience Targeting overlays now support animated GIFs! This means that in addition to using a static image in your Audience Targeting overlay (either one of our options or one that you have uploaded), you can use GIF animation (like in the example above).
A while back we introduced a new feature to the set of Marketing Tools in the form of Audience Targeting, where you can customize messaging to display to different people in your audiences as an overlay on your site. We received some great feedback, and made improvements based on what our users said they needed.

In an effort to provide more transparency and a better experience for all of our users, we’re formalizing the list of browsers AddThis officially supports. We get over 1.9 billion users every day from 15 million websites around the globe. Therefore, we get a pretty good idea of what browsers people use. This means we have to think hard about what browsers we support and how we support them.
Recently you might have noticed that not only were you getting email notifications from us informing you of increased sharing, following or engagement on your site, but now we’re giving you suggestions on what to do in order to capitalize on these spikes. We call them actionable insights. You can call them your new best friend.
You asked and we listened. After we recently launched the ability to create Audience Targeting rules in our Marketing Tools, we got some awesome feedback – including some great success stories (think increasing email subscriptions by 10x) and some “This is changing the way I do marketing” quotes. But we also got some suggestions, and one that we heard loud and clear was the ability to add an image to the Marketing Overlay tool. So as of last week, you can now choose from the set we’ve created or add your own hosted image. Continue reading
