Promoted Content: How it works

Follow

Your site can now make money by including high-quality, relevant sponsored content in the Shareaholic Related Content app. This feature will seamlessly integrate relevant sponsored content from third party advertisers into the Related Content app you already have installed, allowing you to earn revenue from the traffic you drive to those posts.

How does it work?

Advertisers pay us to distribute content recommendations across the Shareaholic network. When you enable Promoted Content, you can display clearly marked sponsored posts alongside Related Content from your own site and earn revenue while continuing to promote your own site content. 

How do I install Promoted Content?

It's easy! First install the Related Content app: 

Next use the Promoted Content slider to manage the balance between promoted posts and related posts from your site. See below to locate settings:
