WordPress Website Workshop Module 14

The Social Warfare Plugin for WordPress is a great tool to provide your users a way to engage with your content on your WordPress site.

Because we don’t want to just feel like we’re shouting out in to the void, right?

We spend the time to create what we believe is great content and we would love it if our visitors share, so it’s vital to make sure that we make it easy for them.

The problem is there are so many to choose from, and some are better than others, and it’s hard to know which social sharing plugin – or any social sharing plugin for that matter – you should use.

The main point of all this is to remove barriers from users so that they can engage and share your stuff online – that’s the whole point of this.

So in this video, module 14 of my in-depth WordPress training series, I’m showing you how to use one of the best social sharing plugins that are available that makes it a snap for your visitors to be able to share your content.

We’re going to go ahead and add a new plugin to add that feature to our website.  Come back over here, Click on Add New.WordPress Website Workshop Module 14 The plugin that we’re going to use to do this is called Social Warfare.
