Frequently Asked Questions

What are follow buttons?

Oh, the beloved follow button! If you do any sort of business online, you likely manage a social media presence of some kind: You’re on Facebook. You publish videos on YouTube. You’re constantly tweeting.

No one wants to speak into the void: You have something to say, and you’d like an audience that will happily listen. Enter follow buttons: streamlined, easy-to-use buttons that enable social follows in a single click. That’s right – there’s no switching between apps (website to Facebook, Facebook back to website, website to Twitter, Twitter back to website…) in order to follow a new account. It’s all one-click and almost zero effort required.

And, you know what that means! More followers for you. Here’s how it’s done.

How do I add a follow button to my website?

It’s easy to add social media follow buttons to your website:

2.     Click on Get Follow Buttons;

3.     Select the social channels for which you’d like to enable one-click follow;

4.     Enter the profile URL for each of your selected social media accounts;

5.     Design your buttons to complement your site layout and design;

6.     Get your follow code, paste it into your site, and enjoy the increased follows.

How do I add social media buttons?

There are two basic types of social media buttons you can add to your website: social follow buttons and social share buttons. Social media follow buttons invite visitors to follow your social media accounts, while social share buttons enable one-click social sharing – for example, to share your latest blog post to a visitor’s personal Facebook account.

To add social media follow buttons to your website, as outlined above:

1.     Open the ShareThis social follow buttons;

2.     Click on Get Follow Buttons;

3.     Select the social channels for which you’d like to enable one-click follows;

4.     Enter the profile URL for each of your selected social media accounts;

5.     Design your buttons to complement your site layout and design;

6.     Get your follow code, paste it into your site, and start enjoying your new followers.

To add social media share buttons to your website:

1.     Open the ShareThis social share buttons;

2.     Click on Get Share Buttons;

3.     Select whether you’d like inline (floating) or sticky share buttons;

4.     Select the social networks for which you’d like to enable one-click sharing;

5.     Design your buttons to complement your site layout and design;

6.     Choose your CMS platform (ex. WordPress or WIX); and

7.     Get your social share code, paste it into your site, and let the shares roll in.

Or, do both! A solid social strategy relies both on more followers and more shares: you not only want your site visitors to become followers, but you also want current followers and non-followers alike to share your great content, whenever and wherever possible. The easiest way to do that: Make it easy – for your visitors. The easier it is for them to follow or share – for example, in a single click – the more likely they are to take action.
