With our latest website update, our aim was to introduce brand new features which independent business can use at a super low cost which will help generate a new audience and increase sales.
To do this, we’d have to speak with existing Snizl Business owners. The Success Story Case Studies on the Snizl blog highlights exactly how success can be gained via the Free Plan and The Premium Plan and clearly demonstrates not only what already works well, but it has also shown us what needed to be done further to improve Snizl, so independent business owners have easier, fairer and more successful experiences selling/marketing online.
We understand that being an entrepreneur isn’t always as glamorous as it may seem. There are quiet days, and there are busy. Trust us, back in September 2019 there we’re just 74,000 Snizl users signed up, and in exactly one year we’ve tripled our growth, hitting over 260,000 users this September.
How did we grow so fast? Well, to put it simply, we used our own platform to grow via Competitions.
We built Snizl Competitions to create a way for businesses to grow an audience fast while gaining visibility for products and/or services.
If a business decides to offer something for free in the form of a Snizl Competition, whether it’s a product from their stock or something completely unrelated, Snizl users will share it organically to their social media after viewing it on the feed because of the ‘extra-entries’ incentive when sharing. Then, when others enter, they become a Snizl user and are automatically converted to followers of your business. This gives your business a brand new audience you never had access to before while remaining transparent with your audience as you’ve gifted one of these lucky Snizl users with a freebie.
Once your business has followers on Snizl, you can send each of these followers push notifications, alerting them to your latest Deals and Promotions – helping to increase sales.
Once businesses start to gain followers, an alert can be sent out notifying Snizl users of a new competition posted and thus, a ripple effect.
The fact we utilized our own platform in a way any other Snizl business can and grew exponentially in just one year proves that our platform works. Posting Competitions is just one way your business can utilise Snizl to grow your brand, alongside our brand new features, the Snizl platform has everything you need to become an established brand with a loyal client base.

The New Features
We’ve designed the latest Snizl release to be our best yet, guiding and helping you to create a solid online presence, with access to a constant stream of new customers from all over the UK. Within the new release, there are 10 groundbreaking features tried and tested, proven to help your independent business grow.
The 5 Free Plan Features
Containing a mixture of original and brand new features, the Free Plan is the standard plan every business is automatically signed up to when they join. Don’t be fooled though, many businesses have seen success with the Free Plan, take Boom Boom London for example, a business who specialises in selling fashion and accessories online, they reached just under 40,000 Snizl Users in a jaw-dropping 11 days!
Create Powerful Posts
To get your product on the Snizl feed, you have the option to create either a Deal or Promotion Post. You can also create Events and Competitions (as mentioned previously). Snizl users can scroll on the feed to view, engage, and click on Posts to claim them, boosting traffic to your website and creating sales. To see the success of a post, including how many times it’s been interacted with, head to Analytics.
With the Free Plan, you can see a standard analytics overview dedicated to showing you how many Claims, Impressions, and Views your posts have received. Seeing this Real-Time data at the click of a button is fantastic for measuring the success of posts and customers’ buying trends. Using the standard analytics dashboard will not only help you check data but learn about your audience and what they engage with.
Unsatisfied with the level of engagement your posts are getting? Want more to gain more Snizl followers, allowing you to build an audience interested in your business? Is one of your targets to increase sales? Run Snizl Competitions.
Like our very own story and hundreds of other businesses, Snizl Competitions have allowed businesses to build their very own audience who are interested in what they’re selling, target and market their product directly to their mobile devices, increasing sales drastically.
Reach More Customers
With the Snizl Free Plan, you have the ability to reach more customers. On any Post you put up on the Snizl feed, quick and easy share buttons are featured at the bottom. These buttons allow for fast sharing across a wide range of social media channels, increasing traffic back to your website.
Want more traffic? Ask friends and family to share your Snizl posts. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Gained hundreds of followers via Competitions and/or sharing? Use Snizl like your very own online shop by Selling Products. We created the smart Buy Now button, allowing you to set a payment method so that Snizl users can become Snizl shoppers in the click of a button.
Cut out the middle man! Enjoy making sales directly through Snizl with no need for a website. Faster ways to make payments increases the chance of sales.
The 5 Premium Features
When you upgrade to Premium you unlock a whole new playing field for marketing online. We’ve handcrafted some of the best features to help you communicate with and sell to new audiences and for just £10.00 per month, it’s incredibly affordable for independent, local businesses on a budget.
Need help at any point? The Snizl Help Team will prioritise your live chat messages and emails, answering you fast, so you can solve any issues and ask any queries quickly and easily – perfect for retaining those all-important customers.
Beat the queue with Instant Competitions. The number of businesses signed up to Snizl is growing every day and with hosting Competitions proving to be a fast road to success, upgrading to Premium will help you skip the line when waiting for approval on new Competition Posts. As a Premium Business, as soon as you create a Competition Post, it’ll go live on the feed for our 260,000 Snizl users to engage with.
So you can see real-time data on the Free Plan already e.g. the number of Impressions, Views, and Claims. But, do you know where your audience is coming from specifically so you can take action and target them directly? The Advanced Analytics Dashboard will show you which traffic sources create the most engagement so you can focus your time effectively and wisely in the future, helping to grow your business.
Custom Call To Action Buttons
What’s more effective than a customisable, clickable button on Posts? Tried and tested, Call To Action buttons are proven to be 70% more effective when scrolling on the feed. If Snizl users see a big bold button underneath a Deal Post, they’re 70% more likely to click than if there was no button.
What’s more for Call To Action buttons on the Premium Plan? You’ll have a drop-down box listing every variation of button text, so you can choose which CTA button fits the Post, depending on the context. (Top Tip: try variations of CTA buttons with Post types and measure their success on the Analytics Dashboard to increase sales!)
Call To Action buttons will rapidly increase the click-through rate on your Snizl Posts, increasing traffic back to your website and thus, sales.
Boost Your Posts
Last but by no means least, with Premium, you’ll have the ability to not only boost your posts to the top of the feed in front of 260,000+ users, but you’ll also be able to send push notifications to Snizl users phones. As mentioned before, this comes hand in hand if you want quicker growth for your business.
Sending push notifications out means that you’ll be able to notify all of your business’ followers that you’ve got a new Post on the feed, and with a conversion rate of a 40% it’s a feature you don’t want to miss.
Not only are we offering the features above which will help you excel in online marketing, but we’ve also added a few smaller yet unmissable features which are too exciting not to mention.
