A New Way to Share with Spreadable

By Alyssa Gregory

Spreadable is a new (beta) tool you can customize and integrate into your website to make it easier for your visitors to share your content and send you referrals. Among the useful features of Spreadable are an easy-to-setup widget, customization and real-time analytics.

Easy Setup

Each Spreadable widget has two primary components: an overlay (displayed when your Spreadable button is clicked) and a standalone referral page.  You can build the page yourself and host it on your own domain or they will host it for you on a subdomain on spreadable.com.



The service comes with extensive customization capabilities. You can define your color scheme, add your logo and use custom messaging. You can even customize the messaging for each social channel and choose which social sites to display.


The service include analytics so you can track results and improve your site from the statistics generated. You can track and analyze your referrals based on geographic location, where on your site (what page) they are originating from, what sharing channels and social sites are most commonly used, and who your top individual referrers are.

All tracking happens real-time, so you always have measurable results as to how your referral program is performing.

The service is currently in beta, but it has the potential to provide something many website owners could easily integrate to learn more about their site visitors, promote their services and improve their websites.

Do you use a similar service? Would you give Spreadable a try?

    It looks almost like a WordPress plugin for a website. I like it but what advantages does it have that TweetMeMe and the like don’t already do other than give stats?

    I think Addthis is better than this one.

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the comments. In terms of working with WordPress it does work with it but isn’t a plugin. The advantages over Tweetmeme are to empower your customer base to increase your volume of word of mouth referrals.
    Addthis is just for sharing content – e.g. a blog post or a news article, not a consistent message across multiple pages on your site.
    At its core Spreadable is a tell a friend tool with social capabilities allowing you the site owner to share a consistent message about your product, brand or service and then reward your best referrers.
    If you have any more questions or would like a beta invite let me know.

      Hi there I’m the Community Manager for AddThis.

      @Spreadable, can you elaborate a little bit more about what you mean by “consistent message across multiple pages on your site”? Would appreciate the feedback.

      If you or anyone wants to get ahold of me, don’t hesitate to drop me a line. – justin@addthis.com

        Sounds like a good tool.
        I use addthis right now would also like more clarification on what the benefit is over other tools already out there – would save business owners a little time finding out for themselves.

    This looks wonderful, could i get an invite? I’m getting interested in social networking as a part of a sustainable network of designers, artists, musicians, and gardeners.
