When people hear “Alexa.com” they immediately think of the Alexa Ranking system for websites and blogs, but Alexa has some other awesome products as well. One of those products is the Alexa Toolbar. Not only is this cool feature free, it’s compatible with Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
There are two ways to use a custom Alexa Toolbar:
Personal Use: Alexa Toolbar can be used as a 1-click “Command Central” for all of your most-frequently-used sites and resources. By adding the source icon or logo along with the URL, you can find and navigate to important sites quickly.
Professional Use: A custom Alexa Toolbar can be a clever, effective, and value-added tool/perk to offer your clients.
Load the toolbar with your website links and top resource pages and give your client’s 1-click access to the most important content you offer, including social media and a RSS feed from your blog.
The more your clients interact with your Alexa Toolbar, they more likely they are to keep it. Add their personal links to social media to the toolbar as well for a more personalized feel.
Branding: Your Alexa Toolbar can be branded to your business and will keep your information and products in the forefront of your client’s minds.
