Share articles with a call-to-action overlay helps you source article content to share that includes a Call-to-Action button!  Use the Call-to-Action to add your personal or business brand "stamp" to your content and to drive traffic back to your paper (or to any outside site Screen shot 2010-12-22 at 09.38.05.pngPro)!  

All of our Publishers can now share the top article URL on Twitter with each new edition, along with a discreet call-to-action overlay on the article that both reminds readers who recommended the content and directs readers of the article back to their paper (or to any other outside website-- Screen shot 2010-12-22 at 09.38.05.png Pro only).

The call-to-action overlay is also applied when you share any individual article manually on your paper, using the share buttons under the article.  See an example.

  • turn on the automatic sharing of top headline articles on Facebook and/or Linkedin.  
  • customize the call-to-action overlay by including their avatar, creating their own message and pointing the call-to-action button to either their Pro paper or to any outside website.
  • turn off the call-to-action overlay, if they choose.

Customizing the call-to-action overlay (Screen shot 2010-12-22 at 09.38.05.pngPro)

From your Paper Settings Dashboard > Social Media Agent > click on "Call-to-Action on Shared articles" to enable the feature and customize the messaging.

Sharing the top headline article URL

To turn on automatic sharing of the headline article:

  • go to your Paper Settings Dashboard > Social Media Agent module.  
  • enable your preferred social media channel by turning on the toggle.
  • under "choose what to share" section, click on "share top article link" to enable sharing the headline article automatically for each new edition.



Note: uses a frame to create a CTA (call-to-action) overlay for the shared article.  If your shared article link does not include a CTA overlay and you have verified that the call-to-action overlay is enabled, it is due to the fact that site you're sharing does not support frames.
