Sumo and Teachable

This article goes over integrating Sumo with your Teachable school.


Sumo is a tool for growing your website’s traffic and getting more subscribers by:

  • Helping you build your email lists
  • Showing you where your website visitors are clicking
  • Helping you increase social shares
  • Tracking your Teachable school growth
  • And more

Sumo has both free and paid plans. The free plan comes with all of the tools you’ll need for your Teachable school. 

Integrating Sumo With Your Teachable School

To integrate Sumo with your Teachable school, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Teachable school. Select Settings towards the bottom of the admin sidebar.

Afterwards, there are two ways to integrate Sumo with your Teachable school:automatically linking your school to Sumo or manually adding your school to Sumo.

Automatically Linking Your School to Sumo
