I'm jealous of these websites
September 20, 2014
They all get TONS of traffic from sharing. Thankfully, you can too with our free app Share
In the past couple of months I've been helping individual sites set up SumoMe.com.
Luckily, I've gotten the chance to meet some great people like Erin from 5DollarDinners, Mandy from HouseofRose, and Toni from TheHappyHousewife.
We got on the phone and started chatting about their websites.
Then they casually mentioned how much traffic they get.
"So yeah, we get over 10,000 visitors a day. Anyways ..."
My jaw dropped. Wait ... 10,000 visitors EVERY SINGLE DAY?!
I was jealous, so I asked them how they did it.
Their secret? Besides having great content, they get most of their traffic from social sites like Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
And the common magic weapon all these sites use to get that traffic: simple sharing buttons.
Imagine that people come to your site and want to share it with their friends.
Without sharing buttons, they have to copy the URL, go to Facebook or Pinterest, not get distracted with kitten photos, paste the URL, write up a description, and finally share your content.
With the brand new Share by SumoMe you can add 1-click sharing to your website.
If you already have SumoMe on your site, install it with one click in the Sumo Store.
I was seriously blown away when we installed Share on AppSumo. Check out this super-short vid where I show you exactly how it works (yes I'm shirtless):
Here's exactly how it looks:
Seriously, this thing is SLICK. Here's a few of the insane features:
- Visual setup: Control where Share appears on your page
- Smart sorting to maximize which networks drive the most social traffic
- Fully mobile optimized
- Share count statistics
- Allows sharing on over 16 different services!
Oh yeah, and Share is 100% free.
We're now using sharing buttons on AppSumo to grow our traffic. What's stopping you from doing the same?
