Many of you know that we love the Pretty Link Pro plugin for WordPress and use it on the planet5D blog – but every now and then we get a complaint about the “pretty bar” that we place on some of our external (non planet5D) links – we thought we'd put together a demonstration of what it does for us, and what it could do for you if you're a blogger.
For bloggers and those who read planet5D blog but dislike the “pretty bar” iframe that we attach to some of our external links, here's an explanation of why we use them and why we like them – even tho some people dislike them.
In this video, we demonstrate one particular link that we posted in 2009 that other people have shared over 50,000 times – giving planet5D a chance to be seen by over 50k potential new readers. And that is just ONE link! Granted it is our best example of this kind of brand sharing, but it makes the point quite well.
name another tool that can do that!
I know that some of you still won't like the pretty bar, but maybe you'll tolerate it just a little bit more once you see how powerful it can be to help spread the branding of planet5D or your own blog. Not to mention that the price is down to $37 – it used to be $97.
Of course, we'd love to hear your comments – even if you still just absolutely hate it! Sound off in the comments below!
