HTML Code

I need only 3 steps to install Sharpay buttons on my website:

  1. Selection button type
  2. Customize my button
  3. Copy & paste the code onto my website

  1. Select button type. For the HTML method, there are four different button types:
    1. Static. I can put a static Sharpay button in any place I want on my websites. I can adjust the button size and color.

    2. Floating. The Sharpay button will be automatically placed in a fixed position at the bottom on my websites. This is the default setting of a floating button, and of course, I may style my button by changing and adding different CSS values to fit my web design, for example, top, right, left, bottom, margin values.

    3. Direct. In this button type, I may choose what social network sharing buttons I want to put on my websites. I can restrict users sharing and promoting my websites only on certain social networks for my segmentation marketing.

    4. Custom. I can fully customize and design my own Sharpay button. All I need is to include the code and javascript Sharpay.io provides me in my design.

  2. Customize my button.There are different settings for different button types.

    🔸 For Static, Floating and Custom button type: I can change the default language in the sharing window. There are four different languages available (English, Chinese, Korean and Russian), or I can choose «By user browser» and let user’s browser decides which one to use.

    🔸 If I want to show the share count, I can check the «Share counter» box in different button types. In the «.img |#img| http://» option, I can add my own image to show when users share my websites.

  3. Copy & paste the code. After all the settings, I need to copy and paste the customized code on my websites. If I do not know how to do that, I need to ask my web developers to help me.

    🔸 There is a «Turn off async script loading» checkbox at the bottom. We recommend I to check this box if I want to use Sharpay client-side API for customized conversion events.

    🔸 No matter what type of button I am going to use, I can always edit the CSS values and style my Sharpay button. I may see how my Sharpay button looks in the preview window.

Project Settings
  1. User’s Rewards (optional setting): I can control my rewarding model here. «Reward mode», whether I want to reward users with tokens for Share and Visits or for Visits only. Visit means click-through, that is someone visits the shared links (links shared using Sharpay buttons) and stay there for a certain time. I can choose in which currency the user will see the reward in the sharing window.

    There are 4 types of reward modes:

    • Shares and Visite: Reward users for both visiting and sharing.
    • Visits: Reward users for visiting on the link they shared only.
    • Shares: Reward users for sharing only only after checking the shared links.
    • Promo Shares: Reward users only one time for their confirmed share of my website link on their social networks.

    "Use Alternative Token": I can use alternative (not Sharpay) tokens to reward users for sharing and visiting.

    "Use Smart Rewards": It allows me to reward users with the cryptocurrency which has the highest price daily growth rate based on CMC. The system automatically changes the cryptocurrency to the one that has the highest growth in price in the last 24 hours.

    **To be able to edit the reward settings, I need to activate one of the plans.

  2. Social Networks (optional setting): I can control and target different social networks. I only reward those users with tokens for sharing and promoting my websites on certain social networks set by me.

    **The default setting is all social networks that Sharpay.io has connected.

  3. Audience (optional setting): Set my target audience here. I can reward target users with more tokens based on gender, age groups, countries and more.

  4. Events (optional setting): Conversion events allow me to track the actions of site visitors who follow referral links on social networks shared by Sharpay button users. I can reward button users with more tokens for visitors' actions, such as sending forms, clicking on buttons, completing orders, etc.

  5. Advanced (optional setting): Here I can control the «Effective period» (the life time of a shared link), «Repeat visit» (the time interval between visits so that visit will be considered as a new visit), «Duration of visit» (The duration of time that an user should spend on the site so that his visit is counted).

    "Shorten links via": If my site works with dynamic content that creates by JavaScript, and there are problems when creating my website preview with "utm" tags, shorten my link via Sharpay is suggested. This will give me the correct website preview on different social networks.

    **If I am not sure what to do with the «Advanced» setting, I may just leave it as default. My Sharpay button will work fine without it.

  6. Access (optional setting): I can delegate project management rights to my colleagues’ Sharpay accounts. I can change the project management rights of a delegated person anytime I want by switching on/off the toggle buttons. I can also remove a person that I no longer want him to access and manage my website project.
