Capture Audience Interest and Move to Funnel With Others Content

What do you like best?

I always hesitated to share content in my social feed for fear that I would send an otherwise great lead to my competitor. This tool is essentially a link shortener that allows you track engagement but with a twist. When someone clicks on the link you shortened a CTA also appears that you create.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of websites that don't support iframes so you can't use on everything.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is one of those tools that is too easy not to at least try. The full power of the tool won't come to light until you actually start using it. Then the light will go off and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Snip.ly helps plug leaks in customer flows. We can keep their interest even from content that we didn't write but rather shared or commented on.

The link between curated content and your website

What do you like best?

We spend a lot of time sharing other peoples articles and blogs o social media, but there is no "call to action" back to our website. Sniply fills this void with a web pop-up banner at the bottom of most websites. They allow payment for only the features you need - a great set-up! Recommended as a necessity for heavy users of social media.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't work on every site, and there is not whole lot of customization. To be honest, we have not seen a whole lot of return from this product - but for $5/month it seems like even if we get one person a year back to our brand than it was worth our time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Upgrade to get customization options in line with your brand guidelines. The ability to customize colors is absolutely necessary. They are flexibe with payments and can give you a custom plan to pay for the exact features you need. Worth it, and not expensive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Social media can sometimes send people AWAY from your site and/or brand message - Sniply helps reel them back in to your original goal: sales/influence/brand awareness. It seems silly to share articles without using it! A must for social media.

A very useful tool to increase conversion rate and web traffic

What do you like best?

Sniply is simple to use but very effective in terms of social media marekting tool . I loved that I was able to have all the analytics and options I need to get things going and see ROI in a matter of months.

What do you dislike?

It is limited in designs.The analytics are weak, we can see clicks on buttons, but actual conversions are difficult to track.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sniply is so useful software. As a professional who takes on many roles, it's beneficial to consolidate as much as I can.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By Using Sniply , we often link to external websites when posting on social media, and the content often ties back to something on our own website.

Good Idea, No Way to Know

What do you like best?

Makes you feel less guilty about sharing content that's not your own; allows you to share valuable external content with your audience, but still keep your brand top of mind and drive traffic/leads back to your website.

What do you dislike?

The analytics are weak, we can see clicks on buttons, but actual conversions are difficult to track even with the cookie installed. As a HubSpot user, I wish there was an integration that made this data easier to see

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool in theory, but make sure that you can actually track its performance before fully investing. There are also free alternatives available such as smol.io

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Content Sharing! As mentioned above, it's great for killing two birds with one stone; sharing others content and yours simultaneously.

Good tool in theory but has not very effective for us

What do you like best?

Snip.ly is a great idea in theory, especially for marketing/social media teams who spend a lot of time curating content to share from sites that aren't their own. It's nice to be able to brand our tweets and other social shares. We particularly like the feed function which automatically "snips" new content from any RSS feeds you'd like it to.

What do you dislike?

Snip.ly works on a freemium model, with only limited functionality for those with free accounts which is ok, however for what the tool does the paid accounts are priced a bit steep. In addition, we are yet to see any real results from Snip.ly so far so it's hard to really show any ROI. (Yet! I'll update this when we do)

And then, of course, there's the ethical issue; is it fair to other bloggers to display your content over theirs and use a redirect that doesn't give them traffic from your message?

We're still pretty on the fence as to whether we will continue using Snip.ly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We initially tried out Snip.ly as a means to help us drive traffic to our content and generate more leads through our social media efforts. We're still yet to see much of a return just yet, though we do like having our brand display on our social media content.

I use Sniply as part of TheRedPin's social media marketing strategy

What do you like best?

The ability to easily customize Sniply's features to fit brand messaging and colours is by far my favourite aspect of Sniply.

Plus, the ability to drive social media engagement is a big reason why we chose Sniply.

What do you dislike?

At times, editing already published links can be a bit cumbersome. Also, certain social media websites (e.g. LinkedIn), are not compatible causing Sniply not to appear. Analytics are not the most robust.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommend using at least the first tier paid version. It opens up far more possibility.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sniply is helping to bolster company's messaging and reach, by allowing brand associated links and blog posts to "piggy back" on bigger newspapers in the same space.
