“Sumo is super fast and easy to implement,” says Kennan Shaw, the Demand Generation Manager for Tony Robbins. “It gives us great flexibility with our demand generation initiatives and has helped us increase our website leads by 15%.
If you’ve been on any website in your life, you’ve seen the standard pop up inviting you to be added to that site’s email list.
…but the most popular growth tools among them are:
- List Builder: This helps you grow your email list and get people to see your best products with pop-ups, welcome mats, and more. You have full design control and where List Builder shows on your site. Includes advanced features like discount codes and our NEW Cart Casino.
- Message Center: With Message Center, you can send messages to your email subscribers directly from Sumo. There are no limits to the amount of subscribers you have or the number of messages you can send to them. Unlike others, AppSumo does not punish you as you grow. I really like that about them.
- Live Chat: This is a BRAND NEW feature that lets you chat with website visitors, prospects, and customers in real-time. This is awesome for increasing the customer experience, increasing website retention and brand affinity.=

The other thing I like about it is that it has Google Analytics built right in so I can check on my numbers without having to log out and log back into Google Analytics.
My other fave tool is the Social Share bar because I like how it keeps track of all of the shares of that article which is great not only for showing off your numbers but for encouraging others to share as well, contributing to more people coming back to your page. It makes it super easy for your visitors to use because it’s right there on the side and is unobtrusive for the most part and less invasive and “in your face” than a pop up. Also, not hidden at the bottom of an article.
Finally, on other people’s website I use the Image Sharer to pin images to my pinterest board.
I also use Sumo.com to reach my subscribers directly and while it doesn’t have the functionality of other tools like MailChimp and ConvertKit, I really like the fact that I can store them all here without worrying about having the price jumps as the subscriber list grows.
I can keep them all on Sumo.com portal and be good to go!
Like their pitch goes, “whether you’re a blogger, small business, eCommerce company, or you don’t believe in labels, you’ll love the Sumo tools.”
