Michael Cheng, founder of Snip.ly, a new breed of link shortener that works to drive conversion, joins the show this week.
Talking over Skype all the way from Canada, Michael explains how Snip.ly’s unique approach to link shortening gives you ad space on any website. For free.
The way it works is that just like any other link shortener, Snip.ly creates links that direct to the original page; however, what makes it different is that it allows you to add a custom message that appears at the bottom of the page when you get there.
Michael and I talk through some of the strategies and tactics you can employ to get the most out of Snip.ly.
