In most social strategies, part of the plan includes referencing other websites. This will add value to your audience and won’t be a consistent promotion of only your own materials These are great for engagements, shares and comments.
What if there was a way to drive more website traffic by sharing these same links with minimal effort on your behalf? You can! You can do it with a great tool called Sniply!
Sniply is a tool that has a free and paid version that will allow you to drive traffic to your website while you are sharing links that go to other people’s blogs. Here is how it works:
You will get a sniply dashboard once you sign up. It’s free! Paid options are available for a more customized snip.
You select the website that you would like your readers to go to. Let’s say that I want my audience to check out the best business books for 2015 by the Business Insider.
Originally, when you visit the website, it looks like this:
Let’s change that! To create a snip in your dashboard, you enter the website that you would like to send people to. Click Create Snip and then enter the website. Once you do, you will get a popup that will allow you to customize where it goes. You can drive traffic to your opt-in, another blog post, your main site or whatever you wish. You can customize the colors and other additional items with the paid version.
Once you do this, you will get a custom link that you can schedule right there into Hootsuite or Buffer. You can also just copy and paste it and save it for later to use. Now, with the link you are given, your snip, when you use that link to visit the website, it will look like this:
This is a great way to show great content and drive traffic back to your website when you are sharing! This is an easy task that you can assign to a virtual assistant who is scheduling your content. You can simply add the task of making the content that is not to your website a Snip!
Note: Not all sites allow Sniply to be used on it. These are very few. An example is Amazon.
Now, you can drive more website traffic, increase conversions and get more people to optin to visit your list with just a few simple clicks!
