LOS ANGELES--(moShare, the world’s first web-to-mobile sharing service, today announced the availability of the moShare WordPress plugin, that allows the free and easy integration of moShare’s mobile content sharing functionality to any website built using WordPress.)--
“We knew that social sharing was critical in increasing website visibility, but we were pleasantly surprised to see how much more engaged the visitors who were driven to us through moShare are”
moShare is the quickest way for users to share any content (e.g., news, videos and photos) from any website to any mobile phone via Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) technology. More than 90 percent of content shared via moShare is opened by recipients on their mobile devices, 40 percent of whom then click through to the referring website, resulting in increased traffic to sites that add the moShare button.
“We knew that social sharing was critical in increasing website visibility, but we were pleasantly surprised to see how much more engaged the visitors who were driven to us through moShare are,” said Joey Flores, CEO and co-founder of Earbits. “They stay on our site longer, visit more pages and are, in general, becoming repeat visitors. This is much better than what we had hoped for in a social sharing plugin.”
The moShare button is commonly placed alongside the Facebook, Twitter or Google+ buttons already being used by most web developers. These buttons are designed specifically to enable the sharing of content and create a more engaged audience.
“WordPress is the backbone of many of today's top blogs. The one common goal of each of these WordPress sites is increasing their audience and traffic,” said Noel Saw, senior UX designer and WordPress provocateur. “The moShare plugin helps accomplish this goal by enabling blog visitors to share the site’s content directly to their closest friends’ phones. You can't get more qualified and engaged traffic than by visiting a link shared by a friend.”
With this new plugin, users of WordPress—the most popular content management system in use on the Internet—can easily add the moShare button directly on their websites, making the content instantly shareable for visitors to the site.
“More than 73 million sites use WordPress to create and post their online content. Developing this plugin enables the entire WordPress community to add the first share to mobile social button,” said James Citron, CEO of Mogreet. “Adding moShare functionality to a website enables publishers to reach readers on their mobile device – the primary device in most people's lives.”
moShare is built on Mogreet’s dynamic mobile messaging platform that is used by Fortune 1000 companies and small business alike to enable their customers to become loyal brand ambassadors. For information on how to get the moShare WordPress plugin, visit www.moshare.com/get_button.html.
