Hello Buddy, the Smart Pop-up: Lets you ask your customers to share, subscribe or visit a specific page.

Customizable Share Buttons: Have the freedom to fully customize the look of your share buttons to match your website. From changing the colours to adding a gradient, the choice is yours.
Copy & Paste Share Tracking: More than two-thirds (78%) of all website shares are Dark Social shares that happen through private channels. With this feature, you’ll know when your visitors share through SMS, Email, Messaging Apps (WhatsApp, Messenger, iMessage, etc.) or via Copy & Pasting Links (Dark Social), allowing you to learn the real ROI for your content and which channels are contributing the most for your traffic.
Subscriber Bar: Convert your visitors into subscribers! It doesn’t matter if you’re a blog, a newspaper or an online shop, mailing lists can be a major revenue generator for your business.
Social Analytics Dashboard: Our social analytics give you insight, in real-time, of how much social traffic each network is driving to your website and identify the best content to feature and promote on social media.
Integrations — Mailchimp & Google Analytics: Use our Mailchimp Integration to export email addresses collected from the Subscriber Bar automatically. Merge the data obtained by GetSocial with the powerful Google Analytics so you can track your conversions.
