5 widgets to boost user engagement

Finding ways to attract viewers to your website can sometimes be a struggle. Even after a big success, you should be on the lookout for ways to engage with newcomers. This is a proven strategy for improving user retention and generating social shares.

Here are five tips to increase engagement levels using Iframes in the Embed & Code widget, available with all Readymag plans.

1. Disqus

Price: offers both free and paid plans

Disqus is a comment system that enables discussion on websites. The platform supports emojis, antispam and moderation tools, analytics, email notifications, and mobile commenting. It’s the perfect match for longreads and media projects created to get a response.

Want to feature a Facebook post on your website? Simply open the … dropdown in the right-upper corner of any post and choose “Embed” from the list. Copy your new code to the Embed & Code widget in Readymag and voila, get the post embedded. This gives room for creative freedom and seems to work for many kinds of projects, but especially for longreads.

5. MailСhimp list signup

Price: available only for owners of paid MailChimp accounts

Readymag provides a well-refined form widget out of the box, but you can also incorporate a lot of external services. If you have a paid MailСhimp account, you can embed a signup form on your website. Customize the form, or combine it with special offers to attract new subscribers — their names and emails will be collected directly in a new MailChimp list. This can make all kinds of landing and promo pages even more productive.
