SumoMe’s Share function

The Share function within SumoMe is designed to make it as easy as possible to get content seen and heard online. Offering connectivity with 16 different social applications, including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, Share enables easy implementation of social sharing buttons on a subscriber’s site and gives site visitors the option to easily share the content they find there.

The Share dashboard offers social sharing data and customisation options

The Share dashboard allows subscribers to monitor share data, select which social applications are displayed and adjust the size, design and page position of share buttons. Professional subscribers can choose to display different sharing buttons to mobile and desktop users; download a history of their share data and implement UTM tracking, in order to show where share traffic originates.

The Heatmaps function indicates user interaction hotspots on a given site

Useful for site development and the positioning of visitor engagement features such as call-to-action buttons, SumoMe’s Heatmaps feature allows site owners to keep track of user interaction hotspots – those parts of a site that visitors click on most. The function offers real-time data relating to an unlimited number of pages and can be custom-branded for professional use.

List Builder

List Builder uses pop-up email capture boxes to add site visitors to a mailing list

Designed to engage visitors by subscribing them to a mailing list, SumoMe’s List Builder feature detects the moment a web user is about to leave and serves them a customisable email address collection popup. Professional subscribers benefit from A/B testing, non-branded and multiple-popup functionality, among other features. Unusually, List Builder is mobile optimised – ensuring data from mobile visitors can be also collected. List Builder also integrates with a variety of email marketing apps, including MailChimp, Aweber and Get Response – allowing SumoMe subscribers to make the most of their newly collected email list.

The latest app in SumoMe’s range, Discover connects subscribers with more than 150,000 sites with the aim of generating more traffic for those involved. The Discover feature works via mutual sharing of content on a credit based system. Links to external content can be placed on a subscriber’s page, generating credits for each view or click of this content. Similarly, subscribers can choose to spend their credits by having their content featured on associated sites.

Content is displayed in grids – pop-up displays of content or scroll boxes – smaller scroll-enabled popups. Discover offers subscribers a dashboard, displaying incoming and outgoing traffic, while the design feature allows you to edit the look and feel of grids and scroll boxes.

Complete waste of time; poorly thought out


SumoMe... I don't know why my consultant recommended it.

1) When I first installed the plugin for WordPress, the location of it's popout activation icon interfered with my drop down menu at WP.
2) Its Listbuilder function, even when I properly connected it to Mailchimp, would not push the email addr's it collected into my Mailchimp blast list.
3) Most recently, I logged into my WordPress acct and I don't have the blue upper right crown icon via my WP dashboard at all (so I can get into SumoMe via WP)! I need the list of all email addr's SM's ListBuilder feature has collected since I activated it, so I tried accessing that info via the SumoMe area in the left control bar AND at and there's no way to even see that list--which would be logical and helpful. Geez!
4) I tried their Submit a Ticket feature to report the above problem and only got this error: This webpage has a redirect loop. ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS

This plugin has been a huge waste of time and (except for, at one time, showing some info about the email addrs it collected when it did work) completely worthless. Absolute top of SKIP IT list for plug ins. Avoid SumoMe altogether. These people have a lot of work to do before this is worth anyone's time.
