Use This Sniply Alternative to Build An Email List While Promoting Affiliate Products

Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I only recommend products I personally use (and LOVE) myself. For more information, click here.

I first discovered this Sniply alternative a year or two ago.

In case you don’t know what Sniply is, or does, it’s a tool that lets you add a promotional call-to-action (CTA) over top of any link that you’re promoting.

I showed how you could use this strategy to post affiliate links on Pinterest here.

The problem now is, Pinterest has banned Sniply links. But with this Sniply alternative you have the ability to use your own custom domain name… allowing you to bypass the Pinterest ban.

That’s not even the main reason to avoid using Sniply though. The main reason is the cost. Check out Sniply’s pricing below:

Pretty pricey and you’re limited to a certain number of clicks. The Sniply alternative that I’m recommending is called LeadGrab.

Check out the main differences between LeadGrab and their competitors:

One of the coolest features of LeadGrab though, is something that none of their competitors offer…

…Exit Intent.

Exit intent means, when the user’s mouse starts to leave the browser window… the popup CTA will be displayed.

As a marketer, we’ve all seen exit intent popups for years and years now. Nothing new, right?

Well, here’s the game changer…

Now You Can Build An Email List While Direct-Linking To Affiliate Products

Yes, you read that right.

If you’re totally confused and have no frickin’ clue what I’m talking about… let me explain.

“Direct-linking” means you go to an affiliate network like Clickbank… grab your affiliate link to promote a product… and drive traffic directly to the affiliate product you’re promoting using your affiliate link.

The downside to direct-linking is, only a small percentage of that traffic will actually convert. Typically 1-2%.

The other 98-99% is wasted traffic. That doesn’t mean that 98-99% would never buy. It just means they weren’t ready to buy right now.

But if you use LeadGrab you can make an offer to the 98-99% of the traffic that’s leaving the sales page for the affiliate product you’re promoting.

Here’s an example…

Lets say I wanted to promote a Keto Diet product from Clickbank. Here’s a preview of the sales page:

If I sent traffic to this page using my Clickbank affiliate link and they decided to leave this site, I could display a popup like this:

This would only get displayed to people who wanted to leave the page.

Everyone else would’ve already clicked through to the Clickbank order form.

Now, as an affiliate, I have the opportunity to build an email list while also direct-linking straight to an affiliate product.

Pretty sweet, right?!

Believe it or not, this actually isn’t a new strategy. The tracking software, ClickMagick, has offered this feature for quite some time now.

But their popup builder is pretty antiquated and would be difficult for most people to figure how to add an optin form to it.

Using Exit-Intent Popups In An Email Newsletter Business

I like to use ClickMagick’s exit-intent popups in my email newsletter businesses.

This is a strategy that I teach my Newsletter Academy students. In the newsletter business, you don’t have to create the content yourself.

Just find a good piece of content somewhere online, create a link using something like LeadGrab or ClickMagick, and add an exit-intent popup to it that displays a banner ad for an affiliate product.

Here’s an example of one I created for a woodworking newsletter business:

I sent an email newsletter out linking to free woodworking plans for a wooden beer mug on and I added that exit-intent popup to it.

Actually, I think I set that popup to display 30 seconds after my subscriber was on the page. But you could do it either way.

That popup linked to a Clickbank affiliate product. This affiliate marketing strategy is pretty underground.

I’ve only seen a handful of affiliates actually use it.

Probably because they have no clue what they’re doing when it comes to running an email business.

If that’s you, I suggest you check out my Newsletter Academy program. It’s what I recommend to everyone who’s trying to make money online.
