Connect Buttons

Social Media has been a great way to bring in traffic for your blog and website.  However, I have noticed that not many people have understood how it works. 

Usually, people use twitter, Facebook, and RSS/Email feed to help promote their site.  By having simple buttons as links to each of these makes it very easy for a reader to get where they want to go.  There are of course other options as well, including Picasa (pictures), Etsy (for their shop), or anything along those lines.

I offer 2 options for these buttons:  Standard and Custom. 

The only difference between the two if the appearance.

 For the standard buttons, I use the logos and colorings that are offered from the websites themselves.  ($5 add on)
I can also use square logos as well if you prefer. 

The next option is to have me make the buttons Custom.  Meaning, I use the logos and incorporate them into the overall look of your design and use the coloring of your blog. 
(We added the Etsy button for her bow shop)
(She wanted the text out to the side to bring a little more attention to the buttons)

As you can see, there are a lot of options for these buttons.  I usually always suggest the custom buttons, just because they match.  But, if you want your readers to recognize the original logos, then go with the Standard Connect Buttons.

Here are some tips for use of the Connect Buttons:
  • You don't have to use all of the options, but definitely use them if you're going to update these sites.
  • The email button can be to either subscribe by email (using feedburner) or to email you directly.
  • The RSS button that Blogger offers works, but some people want to use their own source to read their blogs, which is what Feedburner offers.
  • If you have a blog that you want traffic for, start a twitter and Facebook account now.  You will absolutely start seeing more traffic on your site if you utilize these sites. 
If you have questions about these uses, please contact me.
