We’ve put together recommendations and best practices using Grow on your site.
The easy opt-in will keep your readers coming back AND will prompt them to create a Grow account where it’s easy to save favorites with a single-sign-on.
Customize Grow to Match your Brand
You're encouraged to customize your Grow widget to match the aesthetics of your site. You have the option to change the colors to fit your brand as well as add your logo to have a co-branded sign up experience.
Enable Recommended Content
The Recommended Content widgets are designed to entice readers to stay on your page longer and interact more with your site.
Grow offers a variety of widget placement options - inline with your content, underneath the header on desktop (header carousel), and What’s Next which is offered on mobile.
To start, we would highly recommend enabling the Inline option, as that’s the placement we’ve seen have the most engagement!
Notes on Recommended Content:
Recommendations are recommended content, not related content
Recommendations will change over time, as more readers engage with them
You can exclude certain pages from displaying content recommendations, but do this with caution
