What is Snip.ly
It seems like every day I am introduced to a new social media page. The newest one I have recently discovered is Snip.ly this is a tool that allows you to overlay your own custom message onto any piece of content. You don’t have to own the content to add your message, so you can appear on anything you want it to.
At first this sort of seemed confusing to me, so like anything else I created a Snip.ly account so I can get some hands on experience. They do have the option of signing up through Facebook or Twitter but I wanted to see what they were like alone.
According to Snip.ly you can use it to:
- Increase your web site traffic
- Leverage Viral Content: When sharing viral content like YouTube videos or SlideShare presentations, you can use Sniply to embed them directly into your own website with the click of a button. This drives the virality back to you!
Get Signups and Subscribers: Snip.ly lets you include a signup opportunity within every piece of content you share across social media. You can attach a simple signup form that connects to your mailing list and rapidly grow your newsletter.
A few things just to get you familiar with sniply is that it is very user friendly; this is a plus because people don’t like to spend a lot of time trying to figure out one thing. Snip.ly integrates with over 20 different apps and you have full control over the look and feel of every message you create. The company does offer a free option but if you want to get the most out of the site I would highly recommend upgrading to their Pro Plan which is only $19.99 a month.
Once you have learned the basics ask yourself what sniply can do for you. I think the most interesting thing about Snip.ly is that it helps you drive traffic and overall engagement while you share content from all across the web.
A few other things that could help you:
- If you have a blog, add a comment so people can come see what else you have to offer.
- If you have a newsletter, shorten the links contained within the email with and add a message to recommend particular offers you may be trying to push.
