About the Company enables you to add a custom call-to-action to every link you share, therefore creating a conversion opportunity within every page. This produces a tangible return from every piece of shared content. For example, you can share a TechCrunch article and still direct traffic back to your own website.

“Sniply is a super neat tool that has helped a lot of marketers get more rerun on the links they share”

“Whenever you promote someone else’s site, you can actually drive more traffic back to your site with Sniply.”

Sounds great, right? Let’s make it even better🙌
