Professionally designed, custom share buttons can be a boon to your social sharing campaigns and customer referral program.  Your social lead-generation funnel begins with the button. The initial engagement rate is the absolute genesis of all the metrics that follow.  

Here is a short list of what good button design can accomplish:

  • Increases engagement rates
  • Keeps your social plugins 'brand consistent' on your web site or within email communications
  • Provides visitors with a richer sharing experience
