Go through this review to know that why some bloggers consider Monarch as a special social sharing plugin.
Features Which Makes Monarch a Perfect Social Sharing Plugin
Supports More than 20 Social Networks:-
One of the things which I don’t like about few social sharing plugins is that they don’t support all the social networks. Monarch supports 25 social networks and that’s why you’ll be able to easily find the social sharing buttons of your favourite networks.
Place the Social Sharing Buttons at the Location of Your Choice:-
Some bloggers want to place the social sharing buttons at the sidebar, while some want to place the buttons above or below the content. Monarch is the perfect solution as it provides the option to place the buttons in 5 different location.
Here are the 5 different locations at which you’ll be able to display social sharing buttons by making use of Monarch plugin.
- Floating Sidebar:- By making use of this option you’ll be able to place the social sharing buttons in the left sidebar. Placing social sharing buttons at the sidebar is recommended for those bloggers who don’t want their readers to get disturbed by the social sharing buttons.
- Inline Content – Place the buttons at the top or the bottom of your blog posts.
- Pop Up:- A pop-up with social sharing buttons will get appeared. Pop-up may definitely help you in getting more social shares, but some readers may not like such pop-ups.
- FLYIN:- A box with social sharing buttons will fly in from the bottom right side of your blog posts.
- Media:- You’ll be able to place the sharing buttons on images or videos. If you’re going to make use of interesting images and videos in your blog posts, then this option is recommended. Buttons placed on images or videos may get more easily noticed than the buttons placed at top or bottom of the blog posts.
3 Type of Triggers – Most Amazing thing about Monarch Plugin:-
Thinking that why Monarch is so much recommended?
Monarch social sharing plugin had been developed understanding that blog readers may not like the pop-ups or fly-ins which appear immediately. This is the reason that Monarch has been provided with 3 types of triggers. I’ll be now making you know about these triggers and how they make Monarch the most amazing social sharing plugin.
Readers may not like to see a pop-up or fly-in immediately getting appeared at their screen after coming to your blog. Timed delay trigger will allow you to delay the appearance of the pop-up of the fly-in. By doing this you’ll get assured that the social sharing buttons will get appeared to your readers only after a specific time. Your blog readers may get impressed with the way you have delayed the appearance of social sharing buttons and this may make your readers visit your blog again and again.
Bottom of Post:-
By making use of this trigger, the monarch will show the social sharing buttons only when your blog readers will reach the bottom of your blog post. Your readers may get surprised seeing the buttons appearing when they have reached the bottom and this may make them immediately share your blog posts at their favourite networks.
The third trigger will allow you to make the pop-up appear only when a reader is about to leave the blog post or has made a comment at the blog post.
There are other special triggers too which can be really useful in making your blog’s readers share your blog posts regularly.
Variety of Options for Customization:-
One of the best things about Monarch plugin is that it’ll allow you to customize the buttons, pop-ups as well as fly-ins easily.
You’ll be not only able to change the title and message of the pop-ups and fly-ins, but at the same time, you can choose the best animation for the pop-ups and fly-ins from the 10 animations that are available for you. Different types of social sharing buttons are provided by Monarch. You can choose the button shape that you like and at the same time, you can change the text of the buttons easily.
If you don’t want people to see the share counts, then you also have the option to hide the share counts easily. Monarch also provides the option to display individual share counts or combined count. By displaying combined count you may definitely be getting more social sharing as some readers just love to share the posts having higher shares count.

Ever thought to analyze your blog’s social sharing stats? Monarch provides the option to analyze the social sharing stats easily.
With Monarch, you’ll be able to easily analyze the social sharing stats. You have the option to try out the 7-day analytics or the 30-day analytics. By analyzing the stats regularly you’ll be definitely able to know that whether there has been any increase in the number of shares.
