How To Use Sniply
To Get More Traffic.


Sniply is a fantastic way to highlight great content on the web and point people back to relevant content on your site.

By simply “snipping” the URL, with either their browser extension or their web app, Sniply creates a call to action button to show up directly on whatever content you’re sharing.

Watch my video tutorial above to see exactly how I use it.

It’s an awesome win/win scenario for promoting someone else’s content, while creating a call to action button that shows up on their content that links back to yours.

Here’s a likely scenario:

Let’s say that you’re a singer/songwriter with a new album that’s coming out to help raise awareness about the horrific problem of human trafficking.

You partner with the great organization Freedom Firm and drive traffic to their site, while having a call to action button show up at the bottom of the page, directing people to a landing page that you created on your blog where you’re selling your album.

It’s an awesome new tool. You don’t need to do a line of code, or anything super advanced.

It’s as easy as cutting and pasting!

Step 1

Copy the URL from the site or blog post that you want to share


Step 2

Paste the URL in the “snip” field back at as shown below….


Step 3

The main items to have are:

1. A message for the readers
2. The link on your own blog to send people back to
3. A title for the call to action button

This is what it generates on your shared content:


After everything is the way you want it, just click on “create” and then move on to step four.

Step 4

You’ll see a new window, with a place to get the newly “snipped” content with your call to action button on it.

From here you can share your link on the social media outlet of choice, or even preview the way it looks when people will check out what you shared.

(If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I suggest you to use Buffer. Check out this video on how I use Buffer.)

For all you guys who like to geek out over this kind of stuff, you might want to know how it works. It simply generates a new URL with an overlay of the call to action button. The new URL looks like this:

After you’ve shared it, you can go back to Sniply’s “Dashboard” to track clicks, conversions, manage your snips, and even add RSS feeds from sources whose content you’ll share on a regular basis.

Pretty sniptastic.

To drive more engagement from content that you already share and get more traffic back your site, it’s easier than ever.
