Monthly Digest, February 2019
We’re back with what we hope is your new favorite newsletter!
Just in case you recently joined the party or didn’t read the last newsletter (we have one question: How dare you?), this is where you’ll see new projects for us, what your favorite partners are up to, and what some of our team is doing in their free time.
Now, let’s get you up to speed.
No Place like Home
We’ve started rolling out a homepage to a sample of Sumo-lings. Haven’t seen it yet? Don’t fret! It’s coming, and will help introduce new Sumo-lings to the way we do things on this side of town.
They Said What?
You now have the ability to link to a specific deal comment. That’s not all, though. You can also sort comments by date, rating, and number of upvotes!
Bonafide and Verified
Nobody likes fake reviews. That’s why we’ve added a nifty “Verified Purchaser” badge.
A Milli, a Milli, a Milli
Plutio just hit 1,000,000 tasks completed, mostly by Sumo-lings! But they aren’t taking their foot off the gas — they’re also about to release a huge update that will include a new dark theme and inbox/live chat!
You Want It, You Got It
SocialBee just rolled out a new feature that lets Sumo-lings post on Pinterest! In addition, you can now see post previews (no more deleting and reposting) before scheduling.
Shine Bright like a Rebrand
Novocall is bringing out its personality with a new, refreshing look. And they’ve added integrations, a WordPress plugin, and more! Check out all the updates here.
Shorby recently launched an affiliate program that lets Sumo-lings make money by just placing the “Powered by SHORBY” logo at the bottom of their Instagram bio link. That’s right — no link sharing necessary!
That #1 Spot
lemlist finished as the #1 product of the day and the #2 product of the week on Product Hunt. (We accidentally left them out of last month’s newsletter. We’re sorry, and we love you, lemlist ❤️).
MEET THE TEAM
Mel, Success Manager
What’s an accomplishment you are really proud of?
Helping hundreds of humans learn to love math and science during my years as a teacher.

WE’RE LOVIN’ IT
Blue Ocean Strategy by Renée Mauborgne and W. Chan Kim
“Stop trying to compete in flooded product categories where it’s a race to the bottom. Instead, by focusing on non-customers and rethinking the normal bounds of your business, you’ll be able to open up brand new markets where competition becomes irrelevant. The best business book I’ve read to date.” —Chris S.
HBO’s Game of Thrones
“Rewatching previous seasons to jog your memory and appreciate all of the not-so-obvious but purposeful details is a must. Winter. Is. HERE.” —Vanessa
Greater Goods Roasting Ethiopian Coffee
“My favorite coffee shop in Austin also roasts all their own beans in-house. Warning: If you start your day with a cup of Ethiopian Roba coffee, it’s all downhill from there.” —Nick
That’s all, folks! See ya next month!
❤️ and 🌮,
The AppSumo Team
