Integrating AddThis Tool into Blogger doesn’t impact on page speed. Because it uses asynchronous scripting code. You can check page speed from Google PageSpeed Insight before & after installing. I have checked different Web Tools for Blogger but most of them badly impact on page speed where the perform of AddThis is just cool.
4. A/B Test Feature
The A/B Test feature for promoting links, collecting email address, sharing buttons will help you to select the most actionable, performed tools.

You will not get all the features of AddThis Academy as professionally since it has many limitations of the free package. For that, you have to upgrade package.
The price of the package is high but you can upgrade if you want to use this for your business purposes.
