The Power of Like and Other Social Sharing Tools

1,459

Published on

Social sharing widgets like Wibiya, Facebook Like, and AddThis, among others, are jettisoning your content and brand throughout the web. What’s even more powerful is the return on social sharing from bringing even more people back to your site. This webinar will cover why it’s important to incorporate social sharing widgets into online content and the potential ROI of social sharing. There will be specific emphasis on Facebook social plugins, when to use them, where to use them, and how to get the most from them.
