  20. 20. Problem: Opportunity Cost <ul><li>In addition to the costs of integration and presentation, manually adding ranking buttons does not introduce a new revenue stream

  29. 29. Each button is centered within a 110px by 110px square
  30. 30. All buttons are provided with a visual hover indicator: a border which appears only during mouseover events
  31. 31. Buttons will “flow” within the dimensions of the rectangle specified in the Widget Generator </li></ul>
  32. 32. Solution: Revenue <ul><li>Adding your Adsense Client ID in the Boostpost Widget generator will automatically add the Boost icon to your list of social network ranking buttons
  33. 33. When your readers click on the Boost icon, they will be taken to the “boostpage”
  34. 34. A “boostpage” shows the social ranking buttons for all services in Boostpost for your URL.
