Quick Overview:

CinchShare was developed to be simple, on purpose! Why take extra unnecessary steps to get from Point A to Point B? That can waste a lot of time, which is why Jennifer Johnson, CinchShare’s founder and CEO, created a scheduling and content management software with her husband Joel that would save hours, even days, worth of time to market her direct sales business.

Fast forward almost 6 years, and CinchShare has delivered over 100 million posts and over 10 million Facebook parties by over 200,000 small business owners!
