Is Snips The ‘Cool’ New Influencer Network?


JAN 25, 2018:

There’s yet another influencer network on the scene, and it goes by the name of Snips. They call themselves the ‘coolest’, but do they really live up to the hype? Here’s everything you need to know.

What they do, in their words…

‘Snips is helping savvy social influencers, like yourself, become the ultimate brand advocates.’ According to Snips, 50% of purchase decisions are driven by word of mouth, so whenever you share, like, or tweet about a brand, you are already acting as a brand advocate – and that’s why you should be making money.

And in the news…

They’re being called ‘unique’. Entrepreneur explains Snips ‘is performance-based, it’s opening doors for startups and small businesses as well as niche influencers… The approach could change the influencer market space: “A true influencer should drive measurable action, not just views,” [CEO David] Zaretsky said. “And now we can quantifiably measure that value and its ROI for advertisers.” Whether you’re an influencer, a marketer, or just an observer, that’s good news for everyone.’

How does Snips help you monetize your social network?

Snips operates in a variety of ways:

  1. They provide a real-time, trending news section collated from hundreds of sources in 20 news categories. You earn revenue when you ‘snip’ and share a link – anything you like.
  2. They connect you with brands for Influencer Campaigns. Promote your favorite content, products, or giveaways to your followers, and you can earn revenue with each engagement.
  3. They give you a platform called Collections, which is curated by you. You tag images and videos with shoppable items and earn revenue when fans purchase the products.

What other tools do they provide?

All in all, Snips offer a great range of impressive and easy-to-use, social-media management tools: Social Insights, Scheduled Posts, Branded Memes, Embed Cards, plus the Snips Bookmarklet. These all help you understand your audience better, as well as planning and scheduling content across your channels.
