Are you someone looking to increase the number of visitors on your site and connect with your audience in a more personalized way?
I recently discovered a plugin that can help you share your site on social media platforms with the purpose of increasing your visitors.
Novashare is a robust and user-friendly social sharing plugin for WordPress. It helps you optimize your site’s performance by giving you the option to share your website on social platforms.
In this review, I will be sharing my honest experience with this ultimate social sharing plugin and how you can use this plugin in the best way possible.
So, without any further ado, let’s get started.
What is Novashare?
Before jumping into how you can use this plugin for your website, let’s first see what Novashare is.
Novashare is a premium lightweight plugin that gives you the option of adding social share icons on your site.
The aim of adding this plugin to your website is to enhance the traffic and performance of the website. But with so many social media plugins out there, it can be challenging to choose the best one.
So, what makes Novashare a unique plugin?
This plugin stands out for its ability to enhance your WordPress functionality with a mere 5kb footprint.
Intrigued by this claim, I decided to verify its accuracy. To my satisfaction, the plugin indeed lives up to the promises outlined on their website.
While other plugins will add more or less about 25-30KB minimum to your website, here you have a plugin that is super lightweight and enhances your loading speed.
It is because the plugin uses SVGs to display the social buttons and only adds two requests to your page i.e., CSS and JS files.
With this, let’s jump on to see the features of this amazing plugin.
What I appreciate most about using the Novashare plugin in my WordPress is its lightweight nature, occupying just 4 to 5KB, all while significantly boosting the website’s speed.
Having used various social media sharing plugins, I can confidently say that Novashare is the most compact among them.
2. Interactive User Interface
Another good thing about using Novashare is that it has minimal configuration and settings. You do not need to learn new UI or coding.
You get a content tab under which you see settings like post type, social networks that you want to include, Button position, alignment, and more.
You can also configure button size, button shape, button colour, hover colour, total share count, and network share count for detailed operation.
We will discuss the configuration options in the later part of the blog.
3. Multiple Blocks
It comes with a block editor for every feature, such as the share button, follow button, click to post, and more.
You can also access the preview option and customization options and enhance the look of your post and website.
4. Responsive of all devices
Another good thing about Novashare is that it is responsive on all types of devices such as mobile phones, tablets, computers, and more.
You can also set breakpoints for various features where you want the share button to pop up on your site.
5. Floating Bar Tab
A floating social sharing feature consists of social sharing buttons that remain visible to your visitors as they navigate your website.
Floating sharing buttons are particularly beneficial for mobile users, given their smaller screens. Placing social sharing icons only at the end of the content may not suffice on mobile devices.
The options available in this tab mirror those found in the Inline Content tab. So you can easily configure the settings of this tab.
6. Click to Tweet Button
Twitter (Now X) has always been a compelling platform for marketing people. And so if you want to increase your social media presence, this button is a game changer for you.
With just one click, you can tweet your post or article along with a personalized call-to-action text.
You can also change the theme of the boxes, call-to-action text, and call-to-action position.
7. Pinterest Button
This feature has been added recently and works the same as the click-to-tweet button.
So, if you are active on Pinterest, you can easily pin images and improve engagement. With the help of this button, you will be able to enable image pins and post types to be displayed on Pinterest.
This helps in increasing your activity on social media and thus boosts your post to rank better on SERP.
The plugin works well with most WordPress themes, as well as famous page builders such as Elementor and custom post types.
It is also made to work with apps and caching services that improve performance so your site stays fast.
Now that I have covered almost all the features of Novashare let’s jump to how you can easily configure this plugin and what options you get in the configuration option.
