Do you know what the most popular form of social sharing is? Most people think it’s Facebook because they are as big as they are. But Facebook actually only accounts for 25% of all social sharing on the internet.
It turns out email is the most popular form of sharing with up to 70% preferring to email stuff they want to share to their friends. You can read the full story and get all the numbers here.
You might be thinking: “so what – my blog has buttons that will let people share my content via email!”
But actually there is a problem…
Not only do people prefer to share via email… they also prefer to just copy and paste your content into an email rather than use your fancy “email a friend” buttons.
They are not out to steal your content – they like it and want to share it with someone. But the end result is almost as bad as stealing… When people copy and paste your content to share it via email (or in other places) you of course get zero of the benefits social sharing normally brings you – like links, traffic and brand exposure.
We have developed a WordPress plugin called Covert Copy Traffic that will make sure you get credited whenever your visitors copy and paste your content.
When you have it installed on your blogs, it will automatically add your link and message to the copied content. This technology is so powerful it’s currently being used by big corporations like NBC, National Geographic, The New York Post & The Daily Mail.
And for good reason – it works really well – and missing out on up to 70% of your potential social traffic is a huge deal – no matter how big you are.
Try it out and see for yourself…
Try copying this line of text (or anything on this blog for that matter)… then paste it into a text document and you will immediately see how the Covert Copy Traffic plugin works.
As you can see the plugin immediately adds my link and text to the copied text – and this can all be customized just the way you want it. In this case I have set it to advertise the Covert Copy Traffic plugin, but normally you’d set it to point back to where the text was copied from.
This is super simple but very powerful – you can literally have this technology running on your blog in just a few seconds. Just click the banner below to watch the demo video and see everything the Covert Copy Traffic plugin can do for you.
