In my ongoing marketing efforts I’ve now added the Wibiya toolbar to all of my sites. This is a highly customizable toolbar that appears on the bottom of the website accross all pages of the site. My version provides a number of marketing apps. The left side contains the common link sharing buttons: AddThis, Facebook like, Twitter share-a-link and Google +1. The right side provides shortcuts to my Facebook wall and Twitter profile, as well as a link to Google Translate the site.
One of the more interesting apps that can be added to Wibiya is the Live Notifications app. This allows the webmaster to display a one time notification message to visitors. It will be interesting to see if I can use this box to help market my books. I will try it right away for the Java book.
