Addthis for a corporate website

What do you like best?

The plugin of addthis is easy to implement on the website and allows to add sharing features to all pages in a quick way. We customized the design of the buttons, and we are also able to set the title, description and image that addthis should use (we used the Open Graph protocoll). The dashboard is easy to use and I can analyze main KPIs. I also receive email alert in case I can a spike traffic on the website.

What do you dislike?

Some customization are only available in the pro version, and I would like to have more KPIs on the dashboard.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The contents of my websites and blog are easy to be shared and I can have control on the contents that get a good number of shares.

Add this- dont add this

What do you like best?

I liked their pitch. their data seemed to be strong based on where their pixels are placed and how many sites they are collecting data from. I like their ability to run the data the collect in a self service capacity . their merge should help with some improvements down the road.

What do you dislike?

performance was not strong and the sales rep was CREEPY. performance on the data did not hold up to their promise. the set up was not easy and extremely delayed. Had syncing issues between DSP and Add This.

Recommendations to others considering the product

After getting acquired, they gave up. Add this does not have a strong self service platform and i need to rely on sales reps to build segments correctly . I had problems syncing their data to dsps as it took way longer than i had expected it to take based on how long competitors take to both build pools of audiences and port them over to a DSP on behalf of my client. Find less sketchy sales reps who are familiar with data as an industry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

i am looking for stronger data to target newer users in their platform. Fresh data allows us to target the most appropriately and give the most relevant ads and also collect the most relevant users bases

What Content Marketing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Great social sharing tool

What do you like best?

AddThis is an affordable tool for adding and tracking social sharing to your blog or website. My team uses it for a variety of different things, but I primarily focus on the social performance of our content and AddThis allows me to easily do so.

I love how simple the dashboard is and how easy it is to export CSV files to compare week over week performance.

What do you dislike?

AddThis meets my needs, there isn't really anything I dislike about the product. More social sharing features would be a nice addition, like the ability to create a click to tweet directly within the tool with customized verbiage.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a simple and intuitive tool to track your social content sharing, this is the one for you. It's easy to use and isn't too obtrusive on your blog. You can also customize the look and feel of the buttons to something that suits your blog style.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're trying to encourage and track social sharing on our blog. Since adding the AddThis buttons, we've seen an increase in the amount of social shares from our website.

Addthis for Small Non-profit Website

What do you like best?

Add this quickly allowed us to add sharing features to our website that fit well with the design and layout and didn't cost a ton of custom coding. I love the email updates I'll received from Addthis whenever there is a traffic spike on a certain page on my site or when visitors are coming to my site from another website at an unusually high rate. I also love to different Addthis tools/buttons that you can choose between which seems to be continuously growing.

What do you dislike?

They have many options to choose from for their tools, but I wish there were more types of buttons and more options to customize the colors, size, layout and types of buttons. I think Addthis is still focusing on being super easy and inexpensive to use so that they can attract more users, but I'm looking forward to them adding more of a selection of buttons and tools that can be customized for fit the layout, design and branding of users' sites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would research others out there, but keep an eye on AddThis because they're a great option for the price and looks like they'll continue to offer more to users and advance their tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're able to track analytics for different webpages to see where our traffic is coming from, what time of day, etc. We can grow our audience and make a better experience for our customers to share their campaigns with others and the causes they want their followers to support.

Easy to use,, but wish they was more wiggle room to stylize and set more rules

What do you like best?

That it can easily be incorporated into your website. I like the analytics very much. I like being able to let people share what they see.

What do you dislike?

That you cannot control the layout of the text better, or the size of the banners. I wish there were more background images offered instead of the young and hip. I wish that you could time the banner to close after a few seconds.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use and implement right away

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to see what is popular with customers, and work with the landing page to optimize it if there are no sales, but lots of visibility.

Great Social Sharing Tool

What do you like best?

Add This is super easy to add your site with some simple javascript. You also get a great email every week that lets you know which posts are working and not in an easy to understand format. The buttons are attractive on your site and easy to place where you want them and even size them.

Another cool feature is that Add This only displays the social networks that you use the most. So people aren't seeing options that don't make sense for them.

What do you dislike?

You have to be a premium level to make custom modifications to the buttons or to have them be responsive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it! Add This creates value from the first day you implement it on your site. Simple and even adds a little 'professionalism' and 'bonus' to your site that sets it apart from competitors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to drive more traffic via social media through a third-party. Add This makes it simple and easy for people to share it on their preferred network. When other people share it is authentic and doubles as a metric for measuring the most relevant content on your site. We can then create more meaningful content that will drive more engagement.
