With Sumo, you can:

  1. Announce your latest sale and drive traffic to it or any other page on your site
  2. Shoot your latest article, video, or podcast episode right to your subscribers
  3. Engage your audience anytime they’re using their computer, not just when they’re checking their emails

Push notifications bypass busy inboxes and don’t require your users to download an app.

Plus, your subscribers don’t need to be on your site for these to work either. As long as they’re signed up for your push notifications, they’ll see one as soon as you send it.

All of this translates into giving your messages more visibility.

For those on a Sumo Pro plan, you can now send push notifications.
