Free Tools to Automate Your Site Growth

Omschrijving

Most blogs are designed for hit-and-run readers. People find your blog, read your article, and leave. Wouldn’t it be nice if some of those people subscribed or shared your amazing post?

Sumo provides free tools you need to grow your WordPress site. This plugin will make it easy for your readers to join your email list, share your articles, and optimize with analytics. The free tools include:

List Builder will let you create a fancy lightbox pop up to build email subscriptions (for MailChimp, Aweber, Constant Contact, Campaign Monitor, GetResponse, ActiveCampaign, MyEmma, Mad Mimi, Infusionsoft, Feedblitz, HubSpot, MyNewsletterBuilder, Inbox First, Sailthru, Klaviyo, Vero, Pardot, Zapier, Ontraport, ExactTarget, Vertical Response, Drip, MailerLite, WhatCounts, ConvertKit, MailJet, Maropost, and others).

Share makes it insanely easy for people to share your content on mobile or web.

Welcome Mat displays a full-screen call-to-action that shows when visitors land on your site.

Heat Maps help you see where people are clicking (or not clicking) on your website.

Scroll Box is an email collection box triggered by how far your reader makes it down the screen.

Smart Bar is a Floating Bar that can appear at the top or bottom of your website. You can encourage people to subscribe to your newsletter, go to a specific page or follow you on your social networks.

Highlighter makes it easy to click to tweet about your article by selecting popular parts of your writing (like Kindle and Medium).

Image Sharer makes it simple to share your images (with a link to your post) on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.

And even more great free tools in our Sumo Store.

Now, people will find your blog, read your article, share your article on Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest, and subscribe via email to your email newsletter.

Beoordelingen

Used to love it until it broke

With the latest update it broke and although tech support has been responsive they keep blaming my theme code for the problem, even though I updated the Sumo and not my theme. It worked perfectly fine before the Sumo update and has become just a mess. I did everything the support guy told me to do which kind of fixed the Mat displaying issue but broke my blog theme and then he tells me, oh, well, now that’s your theme’s problem. Wait? what? You told me to do that with the code… and I am paying THEM! Careful.

Initially disappointed, but on 2nd try, cautiously quite optimistic

Initially was frustrated & unhappy. SumoMe redirected me and deleted several hours of work.

I’ve given it another try and, so far, am quite pleased, so I’ve changed my review.

If it holds up, I will increase rating to 5 stars.

I’ve tried no fewer than 7 different optin popups the past 2 years. Some free, some paid. One of them actually worked pretty well for a year… Then problem after problem and their tech support was nice, but unhelpful. Their (paid) optin product required me to constantly troubleshoot and also check for incompatibilities with my other wordpress plugins (ones I never change or add to and all are top/mainstream plugins).

This brought me to a number of other plugins I downloaded and tried.

All were immediately unimpressive and deleted.

As mentioned, Sumo was initially frustrating and disappointing, but on second chance, it seems to be working well.

I hope it continues as Sumo’s interface and capabilities are far superior to other optin plugins. Even the ones I’ve paid for that are, in addition to Sumo, considered the best.

Worst plugin i have every used

Can’t save a form while you are making one. Once you make a form, they disappear with magic. This is clearly some very bad and poor programming.
I have wasted my last 4 hours trying to create a popup form but once i created another one, my first one disappeared.

Bad programming, Worse Customer Service

This is one of the worst customer service experiences I have ever had. You lose one customer with bad service. I will copy and paste my experience with their annoying Rep which took place over email today 10/27/2017 who kept saying “Hey!” As if I should reply, “No worries, Dude!”, after 3 days and zero value for a $200 plan. I feel violated. Sumo Me came highly recommended. I can’t give them a good recommendation AT ALL. Everything was copied and pasted from my experience with the Sumo Me Representative [redacted] Maybe they had a good product in the past. I will not be doing business with them in the future. Boo!

All data disappeared after one week of using

Since a week or so I’ve been using free WordPress sumome plugin for tuandepaso.com, It was registered under tuandepaso@gmail.com or tomasz.pilawa@gmail.com
Nonetheless I cannot log in inside the wordpress on any of the account, my subscription list is no longer here and apparently I’ve also lost my nicely configured popup.
