Olivier de Lamotte -

You are using AddThis or ShareThis and want to add "Follow" buttons to your Qualifio campaigns to increase your number of followers on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube or many other social network? That is totally possible.

This tutorial will explain how to do so in AddThis and then in ShareThis.

 

AddThis

In AddThis

To do so, you can either use one of your current AddThis "Tools" or create a new one. For the sake of this FAQ, let's create a new one:

  • Add a new tool
  • Choose "Follow buttons"
  • Select "Inline"
  • Define your "Sharing services"

  • Design them the way you want. We suggest to keep Button color and White Icon color for UX as well as keeping them horizontal
  • Do not hide on any device
  • Do not hide on any page and define (if needed) a "Follow Up Message"

Keep the first line of code nearby:

1. The script that should be looking like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-5d25eb7e62836d40"></script>

2. The you will also need to insert a <div>. Copy the one underneath:

 <div class="addthis_inline_follow_toolbox"></div>

 

In Qualifio

  • Edit the campaign you want to add this in
  • Go to the step you want to publish the "Follow buttons" in. We suggest the Exit Screen.
  • Go to source mode and paste the <script> and <div> defined above
