11 Custom Share Widgets to Inspire Designers

by Friendbuy

August 28, 2012

Custom share widgets match your brand, look fantastic and improve customer referral performance.

We covered the all-important share buttons in our last blog post, which are responsible for your initial engagement rate. The next step in the lead-generation funnel is to make sure your customers and visitors are presented with a strong call to action and branded sharing experience – sending their message along with your message to social networks.

Good share widget design will:

  • Increase sharing rates
  • Boost referral traffic
  • Look amazing - matching your brand’s look and feel
  • Provide your social advocates (sharers) with a richer sharing experience

Here are some great-looking, custom share widgets to inspire you:
