Social Media Subscription And Follow Widget For Blogger

Social media subscription and follow widgets on your blog allow your visitors to easily subscribe to your blog post via Email or on social media platforms like on Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Reddit.

The benefits of social followers to a blog can never be overemphasized.

Why do You Need Social Followers?


I'll begin with this:

Once you get lots of followers/subscribers, you will definitely get more regular visitors to your site.

Why is that?

It is because your post will be shared to your blog's social accounts and if your visitors have subscribed to any using this social media subscription and follow widget, they will be notified about your blog updates.

Keep in mind that the best way to make this work out for you is if you have already enabled auto-sharing of your blog posts to social media using dlvr.it or other auto share sites.

What Does This Widget Do?

This Social Media Subscription blogger widget eliminates the need to have several social follow widgets on your blog, thereby disallowing clumsiness of the blog and negative impact on its page load time.

What am I getting at?

This widget includes top social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google plus, etc, hence you do not have to install them individually on blogger.

Now,

If you already have done so, you might do well to remove them as this widget is a multipurpose one that will make the others on your blog less useful.

Lest i forget.

Your visitors can also subscribe via Email because an Email subscription button is part of this blogger widget.

You can now follow the steps below to add blogger social media buttons widget to your blog.
