Company description

We think our Tell-a-Friend widget might be the best word-of-mouth marketing tool in existence. Tell-a-Friend makes it possible for your site visitors to share your content with their friends without directing them away from your site. It enables you to influence each shared message’s look and feel with specialized content that includes:

  • Your company’s logo and brand identity
  • Detailed product information, including images and description
  • Personal notes and more

With one button your visitors can connect with their friends on  Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, IM, Google Talk, Digg and 80 other channels to spread the positive referral about you.

The Tell-a-Friend widget works just about any place online like on product pages, search results, news Items, blog posts, time sensitive announcements, contests, events and offers to spread the word instantly.
