Edit: With changes in the pricing for the provider Sumome.com. Essentially, they don’t allow integrations with your email provider like Mailchimp or Aweber so its not as useful. I have done another real fast video that shows how to do the same thing with a different provider. In some respects it’s actually better than SumoMe but it doesn’t have all the functionality. The video is not my best but wanted to share it before you start down the SumoMe path.
Collecting Emails for your Shopify Store
Email marketing has to be one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to market your ecommerce store. Mailchimp is one of the newsletter companies that connects to pretty much any shopping cart right now. And with their Free tier, its a great way for new ecommerce store owners to get started. Of course, the hard part is actually getting prospects to sign up to your email list. Website pop ups have been found to be a very effective way of collecting email addresses.
Adding Popups to Shopify
As useful as they are, no one has come up with an easy way to create a pop up on your ecommerce website, until now. In the videos below, I am going to show you how to create pop ups as well as other email collection mechanisms to grow your list. We will be using Mailchimp but it works equally as well with Aweber and GetResponse if that is what you are using.
If you need to sign up for mailchimp, click the link below:

So now that you see how easy it is to set up, what is stopping you from doing it? There is no programming and even if you pay the extra’s at Sumome it is in my opinion, well worth the cost, and cheaper then other options out there for you.
Edit: After some request, I added some video for delivering an ebook instead of a coupon. It can be found HERE.
