Sumo and Teachable

This article goes over integrating Sumo with your Teachable school.

Overview

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. 

Set up the integration

Prior to setting up the integration, install the Sumo browser extension. This is only available for Google Chrome. To install, click the Add to Chrome button. Then, click Add Extension on the pop-up window.

Once the browser extension is installed, 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

  1. Preview your school's Sales Page as a logged out user, or using a different/incognito browser. 
  2. Turn on the Sumo browser extension from your browser extension menu.
