Readers love lists. Whether they’re browsing through a list of the “Top 10 TV shows,” the “5 Best Productivity Apps,” or the “10 Most Inspirational Quotes,” blog visitors will routinely spend more time on lists than virtually any other type of online content. Listly is a platform that publishers can use to create lists that are fun, interactive, and easy for readers to digest.
Login to Listly with your Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or LinkedIn account, and then give your first list a title, description, and relevant tags. Quickly add items to your list, one line at a time. Items can be added as plain text, URLs, or Twitter handles. Import the items you’ve added, and Listly will quickly format them into an interactive list. Embed the list you’ve created on your blog or website, and visitors will be able to interact with your storytelling product right away.
The lists you make with Listly go beyond anything you could do with a traditional blogging platform. Listly lists are live creatures, which means they help cultivate traffic and engage readers who are already on your site. Blog visitors can comment on lists, vote individual items up or down, and share their favorite lists with friends through social media channels. Listly keeps track of the number of views each list has received, and provides incalculable SEO and social value to any blog or publishing website.
