Social Media Buttons and Icon Sets

Social media buttons are social triggers enabling your visitors to share your content with others in an easy yet powerful way. If you have not installed any kind of social media sharing buttons on your site, you will miss out on a significant opportunity to organically increase traffic to your site. If your content is adding value to your visitors then make it easy for them to share that content with others, which in time might increase site authority and number of visitors. You can easily install one of the many great WordPress social media plugins available to accommodate this and make social media sharing a part of your ongoing social media marketing strategy.

There are loads of buttons and icon sets available with equally many colour, shape and size variations making it fairly easy to find a design that complements your site layout and style. If you want to encourage people to share and like your content, it is essential to place the buttons in a consistent manner throughout your site and above the fold. This could be in the sidebar or as an unobtrusive social bar at the top or side of your articles making it a natural part of your site layout.

How many buttons to include depends on which social media platforms you are using as part of your marketing strategy. Making it easy for visitors to bookmark your content for later digestion should not be underestimated and adding a ‘follow us’ button on every page will also make it easier to get new followers potentially strengthening your brand recognition. Keeping the number of buttons low also ensures a clutter free and easy navigation.

Whether you want to replace your existing buttons or are just setting up your social media icons for the first time on your website, this collection of 40+ buttons is an excellent place to get inspiration. If you find this article useful, please feel free to share and like.

Talking about amazing social media buttons and icons sets, how come your site does not include a Pinterest or Pin this button? While I understand that they are hard to code with the Wordpress social plugin that you are using, you should try to install one. Traffic from Pinterest has been reported to be quite good for design and tech blogs like yours. You should take a look at implementing one at your site, what do you think?

Hi Stefan, thank you for your comment regarding a Pinterest / Pin it button. For now we have decided not to include Pinterest but we will take it into consideration next time we change our layout :)

Kind regards,
Sofie

Thanks so much, I’m going to figure out how to get those Web 2.0 buttons integrated into one my my sites. I like that they don’t look like most other “cookie cutter” freebie icons.
