If you don’t have a budget for now, then here is a premium class plugin available without any price tag. I’ve personally used it on one of my blogs and it worked like a champ. It puts a simple lock on a particular section, which can be initiated using a shortcode, asking visitors to do a social share in order to unlock the part. It works with Twitter, Google+, and Facebook, the three major source of social traffic, and it can be used on any type of URL i.e. content type. Everything is good on the performance side, making the module load at super fast speed and the plugin is also developer friendly, allowing them to create their custom visuals and functionalities. Later when you can afford to pay, go for its paid version which can unlock few more options. The paid feature can unlock other social platforms and also come with dedicated support.
