You have heard of Bitly and Owly, and now let us give you…Sniply. Sniply is a social media marketing tool that allows people to add custom messages to any web page they post. Users can embed call-to-actions into every piece of content they share, including links to articles from various websites.

Sniply is a link shortener that drives conversion, helping users around the world convert their followers into customers every day. Anyone who clicks on a Sniply link will see the original content with the call-to-action displayed inside, allowing businesses to convert social media followers into users and customers.


Link shorteners such as Bitly and Owly redirect to the original page, but Sniply has taken it a step further by creating a click-through opportunity back to your website regardless of which website you share; and backing that up with great features like: analytics, traffic source, integration etc.

Led by Michael Cheng (CEO), Nigel Gutzmann (CPO) and Christopher Bowal (CTO) and launched in March 2014, Sniply acquired two of their competitors, Denver-based Hoverpost and Paris-based Headshare, absorbing their userbase and technology.
