The count and description of programs below includes all new program launches between 20th July 2015 and 17th August 2015, although some programs may have already been highlighted in prior press releases.

The twenty-two programs were launched for thirteen unique clients (agencies and brands), seven of whom are existing Snipp customers.

Last week we closed on $530k worth of deals in one day and over $1MM in a single seven day period. We're on a great run and it's a testament to the strength of our team and the solutions we have in the marketplace."
