SumoMe is a WordPress plugin that has multiple inbuilt apps for increasing the website traffic and helps in Lead Generation. It can eliminate your number of plugins. The SumoMe plugin can do a variety of tasks such as Email List building, Social sharing, Heatmap, contact form, pop-up newsletter builder etc. So, why we install different plugins to do such task when it can be done by only one plugin. SumoMe comes with a different module which can be activated after installation of the plugin as per requirement.
I have seen many websites using one plugin for contact form, and one for Newsletter builder pop-up, floating sharing icons, social media plugin and so on. After installing the SumoMe, I have uninstalled near about 4 WordPress plugins from my WordPress Website, which helps me in improving my WordPress speed and also the management. This simple and great plugin is free and helps a lot in generating leads and subscribers. All the modules of SumoMe are available in the free version but with some limited features. So, after using the free version if you think that you want more from this plugin you can upgrade it to pro version. I am using the free and its perfect for me.
