Most blogs and websites are designed for hits and readers. People love visiting the blogs that mostly solved their problems, read articles there, and look forward to more updates from the Owner.
Wouldn't it be nice if some of those people subscribe or share your amazing post?
SumoMe provides the tools you need to grow your blog by engaging your readers. This tool will make it easy for your readers to share your articles and engage in your community as you can see some share buttons here. The tool has been tested on both Blogger and WordPress Platform and it works more than expected. Have added a video at the bottom of this post to help blogger blogs in setting up but for WordPress users simply install the SumoMe Plugin and set it up.
Highlighter Tool makes it easy to tweet about your article by selecting popular parts of your writing (like Kindle and Medium);
ImageSharer Tool makes it stupid simple to share your images (with a link to your post) on Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.
List Builder tool will let you create a fancy lightbox popover to build email subscriptions (for MailChimp, GetResponse, Aweber, or others).
Now, people will find your blog, read your article, share your article on Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest, and subscribe via email to your MailChimp email newsletter.
There are also more great tools in Sumo Store you can add to improve your website traffic and performance.

Although we have different social sharing buttons outside there if you can try this one out you would see the difference. Probably if you are using a PC you would see floating share buttons on the left-hand side and if using a mobile you will see the set of share buttons at the bottom of your monitor which floats along as you read articles.
Even if you forgot to share, the floating nature of the share buttons would call your attention to share to your social networks and from their new readers pop in.
Highlighter, the Twitter and Facebook sharing feature designed to encourage sharing on Twitter, Highlighter lets readers easily select portions of your article to share as quotes on Twitter. Popularly tweeted sections are highlighted on your blog which boosts Twitter sharing significantly. It's an automatic click-to-tweet. The Highlighter feature improves Twitter shares by allowing readers to highlight portions of a post or article to quickly quote on Twitter. This functionality makes tweeting about your latest post quick and easy.
When someone tweets a quote from an article, automatically the text became highlighted and ready for tweeting. This attracts your reader's attention and boosts social sharing. These highlights can also be edited by the admin from the dashboard if you don't want a particular highlight to be showing to other readers.
The Email list is one of the most important assets on blogs/websites. As you build your email subscriber list, promoting your new posts becomes easier, faster, and more effective as you can quickly send a notification to thousands of interested people who want to read your content. Although I don't have up to thousands of Subscribers yet still I gain the attention of my subscribers by sending new posts and updates to their emails.
While most email subscription boxes are static widgets in the sidebar, MailChimp/Aweber list-builder generates extra attention and higher signup rates by introducing an unobtrusive popover signup box to readers. You can decide whether this box loads manually after the visitor has been on your page for a few seconds or automatically when the mouse moves away from the page (much like Exit Monitor).
Alternately, you can simply set List Builder to collect email addresses that you can export in CSV format and use whenever needed. Also, there is more customization which makes the feature great. With the popup feature of the subscription box have experienced an increase in email signup and wish it would work for you as well.
A heat map is a great tool for you to let you understand your readers and what updates they would prefer more from you. From the above image, the big dots indicates the area where my readers' mouse has clicked on. The Blogging and Smartphones gain more clicks on the navigation menu which implies that if I can improve my posts on Blogging and smartphones I would satisfy my readers more than before. Also, the search feature is used as well as the widgets on the right-hand side; Random Posts, Popular Posts, and Recent Comments. You can as well see there are shares from the share buttons on the left-hand side. You can do this as well to know what updates your readers need most from you.
Although we have this service rendered by GoogleAnalytic but can you consider staying on your site and seeing the analysis direct without going elsewhere for the data. The tool is to count the page views and how long readers stay on the page. You would found it useful if you can lay your hand on it.
So far as have been using it I found the tools useful and now I want you to test the tool and as well leave a comment below for a discussion about the great tool.
Thank you so much for sharing this post with us on Aha!NOW ABC community. I was looking for a tool which can count the social shares correctly and I guess I landed on the right one. I am much impressed with the highlighter tool and the heat map. I am gonna use it!

Yes, I've read and heard about SumoMe, and many of my friend's are also using it. You wrote well about all the features and explained it all in detail. It surely is a plugin worth considering, and I think they even have a paid version of it – so there are lot of things you can choose from it.

Thanks for dropping your view on this.
Thanks OP but how do I make this share button display below or above post.
And also how do I display related posts below a post in my blog? Thanks in advance im using the blogger platform
For Related Posts you can just got that from searching here and the share buttons can below post just go to admin settings of the share buttons and click on layout.
From there change the location of the share buttons for both mobile and web version and that's all.
Admin settings in blogger? I can't find that in my dashboard.
And concerning the related post I couldn't find anything from this blog. Maybe you could link me directly to it. Thanks in advance
I mean the Sumome Admin panel. The store where you add the share buttons to your blog.
