How to Fully Integrate and Monetize Your Web Stories

Web stories, the web version of the popular social media format, are rapidly increasing in popularity thanks to a renewed emphasis by Google.  Google views stories as a great new traffic source for publishers but equally importantly, as a new engaging medium on the web.  (Watch this short overview from the stories team at Google). 

Google suggests "deeply integrating Stories into your website" as part of their Stories specific SEO tactics.  At Slickstream we’ve launched a new set of features in the Engagement Suite focused on seamlessly integrating stories into publishers sites as well as ensuring stories are always presented on monetized pages within the site's theme.  These features work with stories created using the Google Web Story WordPress plugin or with stories authored with the Slickstream Story service. 

 

Below is a overview of how to monetize stories and more details on the new features, or you can just skip to how to add them to your site.

So when we roll out a new tool in the Engagement Suite, the first thing we do is test, test, test! And this week, our friends at DIY & Crafts were kind enough to let us publish the results on our latest addition: the content grid.

Engagement Suite Minimum Price Now Just $10 per Month

When we introduced the Slickstream Engagement Suite in October 2019, one of our primary pricing considerations was our ability to adequately support all of our customers, including a high-touch onboarding process.
