We love being a part of this creative community and sincerely hope we help generate revenue for each site owner so they can do even greater things.

Snap Skout, a media technology startup focused on delivering the best and most relevant deals on the web, just announced the availability of its first WordPress plugin, the Snap Skout Social Sharebar. With this new plugin, WordPress bloggers can easily download and install a sharebar for no-cost that features the most popular social sharing icons (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Reddit, Tumblr) and Skout, a button that surfaces the best deals on the web related to the content on the page. Skout provides a new revenue opportunity for bloggers who want to make money from advertising but do not want the distraction of flashing banner ads or pop-ups. The plugin is available for download in the WordPress directory

By partnering with the best deal networks--and advertisers such as Groupon, LivingSocial, Amazon Local and Gilt, Snap Skout is able to deliver the most relevant offers to readers at the right time and place. When a reader clicks through to an offer, the publisher gets paid.

As the world’s most popular blogging platform, WordPress currently powers about 60 million websites around the world. As of August 2013, WordPress was being used by more than 18.9% of the top 10 million websites (source: Wikipedia). By releasing a free social sharebar plugin for WordPress users, Snap Skout hopes to stimulate adoption and increase user feedback so it can become a meaningful contributor to the WordPress world.

Aaron Goodin, CEO of Snap Skout, says, “We love being a part of this creative community and sincerely hope we help generate revenue for each site owner so they can do even greater things.”
