Welcome to my new On My Radar series
I’m very passionate about business, ecommerce and improving things. I love to learn and expand my knowledge base. I want to understand why things work and how to apply these concepts to other problems. Therefore, I’m continually looking for new podcasts that I can learn from, websites, articles, apps, tools or anything else that will improve the success of my business. I also love to share this information with others who are interested. Sooo… I’m starting a new category of articles called “On My Radar”. I hope that you enjoy them and please feel free to email me with anything that you think I might like!
For the first post, I was going to share my favorite podcasts, but I can’t wait another week to share SumoMe, a social sharing tool. It is just that awesome. I have been using SumoMe for about two weeks on InspireYourStartup.com and it totally rocks! First off – they have a FREE robust version of each product, so you can try it out as long as you want and never pay if you want. It includes tools to:
- Build you email list (connects easily with most major services),
- Analytics, including heat maps, content analytics and google analytics,
- Social Media sharing, and
- A Contact Form.
If you use wordpress, you just add it as a plugin and you can start using any of the tools in just a matter of minutes. It is super easy to use and the user interface is awesome. It works with other sites, including shopify.com (our favorite).
Social Media Sharing
If you want more viral traffic from social media, you need to make it easy for your readers to share. It literally only took me about 5 mins to install the Share tool (across the top of the screen) and it will automatically share which ever page the reader is on. Super EASY!
Email List Building
Building your email subscriber list is critical to reach your audience when you want to. You want to make is silly easy for them to sign-up for the list, when and where they want, as well as remind them to sign up occasionally. Install SumoMe List Builder and Welcome Mat, and Boom, its ready to collect emails.
Do You Still Need Another Reason?
Still not convinced? Ok, here is the icing on top of the cake. I started getting emails from SumoMe and I was about to delete another email, but I decided to read it. It was a killer article with a bunch of really useful information that I hadn’t already read 10 times on other sites. I’ve started using some the suggestions in the article and they are moving the needle. So you will get free tools that are awesome and useful information to grow your traffic.
Did I mention the free version is completely FREE!!!!!!
