Share Juice Pro Plugin – the best social sharing experience

share juice pluginI have been using many social sharing plugins, too many to mention in a blog post. Some of the plugins I have been using have crashed my blog, and some have been rather good. And, Digg Digg, the plugin I have been using until I switched a few weeks ago, was the best one for what I was looking for. But, after I discovered Share Juice Pro developed by the brilliant Ashvini Saxena, I am never going to look for another social sharing plugin.

First of all, I have crossed paths with Ashvini on several occasions before, and he has always been very helpful, whenever I have had a question, he had the answer. This way, he has been building trust for a long time. And, when I noticed that he had released Sharing Juice Pro, I had to test it, at first, just because Ashvini had been helping me a lot in the past and I already knew that he was an awesome programmer.

What is Share Juice Pro?

When I read the first paragraphs about the plugin at Adrienne’s blog, I thought that it was just another social sharing plugin for WordPress. But, after  I finished reading the article and started testing it myself, I understand that it’s much more powerful than that.

If you hover over my pictures, you’ll see a “pin it” button, this helps promote my pictures to Pinterest. And even though the social sharing icons below my posts are more or less the same as I was using when I was using Digg Digg, I am using the standard icons because I like them. But, with Share Juice Pro I can change all the icons if I want to, and I can add my own icons, as easy as that (even I can do it). The plugin is highly configurable. Like I said, I can add my own icons, and I can add the social sharing buttons above my posts, below my posts and as a floating bar. I can also add a text above the buttons, it’s that says “If you enjoyed what you just read, please share the article”.

Why should you pay for Share Juice Pro?

Share Juice Pro is a premium plugin and the price is $10. It’s a one time fee. I didn’t think much about whether I should pay the $10 to buy Share Juice Pro or not. I know that there are a lot of similar free plugins, but the thing is that one of the most important plugins for my blog is the social sharing plugin. This is how I drive most of my traffic, and I want it to be as close to perfect as it comes. Like I said, Ashvini is an amazing person, and he loves to help people. When you buy Share Juice Pro, you get his support as well, and that is worth a lot more than the money you spend on the plugin.

I tell all my clients to use WordPress, and I tell them about the wordpress plugins I recommend, and right now, one of my favorite plugins is this one. I love the support from Ashvini and I know that he is working on some interesting updates as well, and he is always open for suggestions to make his plugins even better.

Which social sharing plugin are you using?

Like I said, before I started using Share Juice Pro, I was using Digg Digg, and I don’t know how many different plugins I have been testing during the past years, but it has been a lot. I’d love to get some feedback from you about which social sharing plugin you are using.

    Social plugins are good for all bloggers because social media is a good source of traffic these days and in future as well.

    And it is good to try different things.

    Hi Jens,
    Thank you for such a really good review. When I created this plugin , I was not sure , who would buy it ( maybe one or two people) . I was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong :).
    I am really very happy that Share Juice Pro is working great for you. We had initial hiccups but it only made the plugin better and better. Thank you for being patient in those early days :).
    Yes there are plenty of features lined up. They include email functionality, author box, open graph integration and many others. I am really happy that I am getting more and more feature requests for future :).
    Thanks once again for review, your suggestions and your feedback.

    • Hi Ashvini,

      Your plugin is awesome, and I am looking forward to the new updates. It’s so much fun to be using something in the early stages of the product, and the way you handle the challenges was brilliant.

  3. Adrienne says:

    Yay!! I’m so happy that you’re as thrilled with Share Juice Pro as I am Jens.

    Now you know that Ashvini is one of my most favorite guys so although I was prejudice, he goes above and beyond to help people out so I knew that this plug-in would be a big hit. I also know that he’s continuing to improve it and make it even better.

    I do hope that everyone will grab it now while it’s still so inexpensive because I’ve helped convince him, I think, that it’s worth much more then $10.

    Love your review Jens and am spreading the word about this one.

    • Hi Adrienne,

      I have just asked Ashvini to give me the price for a developers edition, this way I can use his plugin on all my clients’ sites as well. I agree with you that $10 is inexpensive. And I can’t wait to see what news he has for us 🙂

    Hi Jens, How awesome that two of my favorite bloggers, wait…I mean friends, are working together! I use Share Juice Pro and it’s one of the best plugins I have on my blog. Share Juice Pro has capabilities beyond the average sharing plugin. As you pointed out, sharing plugins are so important because they drive traffic.

    You’re right about Ashvini too. He is a marvel so I know that he stands behind this plugin and is eager to keep improving it (though I agree with you, it’s already great!).

    Great review. I’m so glad you’re enjoying Share Juice Pro and that you’re sharing the word about how great it and Ashvini are!

    • Hi Carolyn,

      Yes, friends, that’s it 🙂 I was so happy when I read about the plugin over at Adrienne’s place, and after talking with Ashvini, I discovered that his plugin was in fact one of my favorite plugins after just using it for a few minutes 🙂

    I think Digg Digg is really famous plugin, which have been used by maximum blogs to increase their social influence.

  6. Rusty says:

    I think you have shared a very nice review with us! I agree with you that social signals are one of the most effective tools in driving traffic on your site so I will be checking out this plugin.

    Social media is the buzz word these days, each and every positive outcome is tagged as the fruit of the social media. This very reason magnifies the significance of the social plugins. Share juice plugin seems to be a nice tool on the block. The review is done with great perfection and detailing. This plugin has made a place for itself in my heart because of this well written review. Thanks for sharing it.

  8. Fatima says:

    Seems like a very useful plugin; hadn’t heard it of it before. And I think its worth giving a try. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Ebuka says:

    The plugin’s features sound interesting. Do you have a similar version for blogspot blogs?

  10. Lisa says:

    Jans I made the switch and I LOVE it, that pin it button is really priceless to get more pins and engagement there. I love the set up and Ashvini is right there if you need any questions answered. I always do and he was there!
