1. Create YouTube Videos
If someone is on Snapchat they have likely used YouTube in the past 30 days. If you want to get more followers and story views create some YouTube videos related to Snapchat. Some of the people I follow I found on YouTube after they explained how to use two filters at once or how to find secret features on Snapchat. If they know how to do these special tricks they deserve my follow, right?
If you already have a YouTube Channel you have a following that is probably already on Snapchat. If you have never posted a YouTube video now is the time to do so. If you have an iPhone it is very easy to video your screen as you are using Snapchat. You can upload this video to YouTube and have a piece of content that can be found in the second largest search engine in the world. Remember to name your video something relevant. Use the word Snapchat and what you are doing as the title. This will create thousands of YouTube views. Some Snapchat YouTube videos have hundreds of thousands of videos views just because a YouTuber showed Snapchat how to. Upload your Snapchat video to YouTube today.
2. Fake it Until You Make It
This is a basic business mindset that has been used since the beginning of time. Even if you do not have a popular Snapchat account it does not mean you are not popular. Every time you break a milestone mention it on Snapchat, Twitter or Instagram. The first time I broke 500 views on a Snapchat story I screenshotted it, shared it on Twitter and thanked my Snapchat followers. When I broke 1000 views and shared the screenshot on social media several people contacted me asking how I became such a celebrity.
There is nothing wrong with celebrating your Snapchat success. I wouldn’t share a screenshot every single time you get another 100 views but breaking a milestone is important. It will also let your followers know that you are serious about growing your following and Snapchat view count. They will likely share your story, no pun intended, with their friends. Do not fear the rejection and hatred of some users. Overall, sharing your successes will only get you more followers in the long run.
3. Create Amazing Content
When I first started my Internet marketing business I was interested in getting to the front page of Reddit. If you’ve never been on Reddit, go now. You can finish reading this book in about three months when you have finally peeled yourself away from Reddit. I digress. Getting to the front page of Reddit is extremely difficult. In fact, I would argue it is one of the hardest things to do on the Internet. You are more likely to score a date with Anastasia Ashley or Paige Spiranac. After doing plenty of research on how to get to the front page of Reddit I came across a website that explained it perfectly – create amazing content.
It really is as easy as that. You must come up with some fantastic content if you want to get to the front page of Reddit or grow a following on any social media app. Although most Snapchat users are simply looking for any type of content they are going to unfollow you if your content is not good. With this in mind, I would suggest coming up with something that is fun and interesting. Comedy always works. Amazing photographs are useful. Videos do extremely well on Snapchat. Do something unique and create amazing content if you hope to continue to grow your Snapchat following.
4. Use Your Best Skills
We all have different skills. Some of us can dunk a basketball flat footed while others can hit a 300 yard drive on the golf course. Some are amazing artists while others are extremely intelligent. If you are reading this book you likely know what skills you possess. Show off those skills on Snapchat. Do you know how to solve a rubik’s cube? Do so on Snap. Can you juggle? That would be a great addition to your Snapchat story.
Figure out your skills and use them to promote your Snapchat account even more. The more unusual your skill the better. Try not to be embarrassed as this will show through on your Snapchat story. Let go of the tension and enjoy yourself. You will find that your followers enjoy your talents as much as you enjoy using them.
5. Notice What Everyone Else is Doing and Do the Opposite
This is another basic principle that leads to success. If everyone else is doing it you should do something different. Instead of sharing pictures of your food share pictures of your food devoured. Instead of sharing videos of your dog playing, share videos of your dog being weird or awkward. The more unique you are, the more interesting you are.
This may take some time to recognize but once you do you will find that others start to emulate you. When they emulate you continue to do something different so they will never be able to keep up. The more you are ahead of the crowd the more popular you will become. This may not seem like the case in middle school or high school but I can assure you it is. Use your creativity and come up with a very unique way to use Snapchat.
6. Do a Weekly Podcast
It is very easy to create a weekly podcast with your iPhone, iPod or Android device. Even if you only talk for 15 minutes it is still an opportunity to reach a large audience through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. A podcast is different from a blog because it gives users an opportunity to listen to your voice rather than read what you write. Some of the best podcasters in the world have found that listeners fall in love with their voice. If you listened to the “Serial” podcast you can still remember the voice of the woman interviewing the alleged killer.
If you listen to any type of sports radio, or radio in general, you immediately recognize a voice you have heard before. With Snapchat offering video that can be accompanied by audio you are given a great opportunity to let your voice be heard. Take an extra 15 to 30 minutes a week to create a podcast. You can even create a podcast on your Snapchat experiences. If you do so, make sure to promote this book!
7. Snapchat Video Your Friends
Don’t limit your Snapchat stories to just yourself. Some of my most successful stories were my friends acting like fools. The best videos are those you capture at random moments. It is likely the case that your friends will not care if you share them on your Snapchat stories. In fact, if you have already built a large Snapchat following, they will want the promotion.
Spend some extra time with your funniest or most interesting friends on the weekend and capture those hilarious moments. If you think it is funny someone else thinks it is funny. You may want to consider allowing one of your friends to be the center of attention for a day. If you get a good response you can use them again at another time. You will immediately know if they are a hit by the number of screenshots and private snaps you get. Share the fun and make certain your friends get their 15 minutes of Snapchat fame on your story.
8. Have a Guest Snapchatter Use Your Account for a Day
If you are on Snapchat you have friends that use Snapchat. There is a good chance you have some friends that are extremely funny or talented. Spend a day with that person and let them do a “Snapchat takeover”. This started on Twitter with the bigger accounts but it makes even more sense on Snapchat.
You need to be very careful with whom you give your Snapchat password. Remember, if you give them your Snapchat name and password they can log in and change your password and start using your account all the time. I have known a handful of people that have tried to work one on one with Snapchat to get a hacked account fixed but it can take weeks and sometimes months. If you are attempting to grow your Snapchat following you do not want to wait months to get your normal Snapchat account back.
What makes this even more troublesome is the fact that you have likely already shared your QR code all over the web. If that account has been compromised you will be building followers to an account you don’t even have access to.
With this in mind, I would suggest being with your friend or guest when they are using your Snapchat account. You do not want to go through the hassle of losing your password and having to start from scratch. Go out with one of your friends and have a fun day together. Let them be in charge of your Snapchat account. I can promise that you will have plenty of fun with it.
9. Do Random Interviews
The man or woman on the street tactic has worked since the beginning of entertainment. Any time you watch a late night TV show there is a member of the staff doing random interviews on the street. Come up with some questions and go ask everyone the same question. A great question would be “Do you use Snapchat?” Some of the older people you interview would look at you as if you are speaking a foreign language. They will likely be clueless as to what Snapchat even is. A 10 second video is the perfect amount of time to ask one question and get a reaction.
When you first start the interviews it might be a little awkward as you are getting used to the process. With every person you interview, you can tell them to follow you on Snapchat. That is killing two birds with one stone. You may want to have your Snapchat name or QR code available for them so they can add you quickly.
If you live in a college town or near a lot of high schools and middle schools you can ask plenty of people questions related to Snapchat and social media. Even if you live in the middle of the country, there are still plenty of great “street questions” you can ask that will keep your following entertained for hours. If you get a really good interview your followers will likely watch it over and over.
Go out and ask people what Snapchat trophies they have and let the entertainment begin!
10. Write a Snapchat Book
If you write a book on almost any subject you immediately become an expert. It is very easy to publish an eBook these days. If you take the time to sit down and write a Snapchat book you are going to get tons of new followers and thousands of views on your stories. It takes a lot of knowledge, experience and time to sit down and write an entire book. If you do not truly understand Snapchat and how to use it your book will not be useful. If you are a diehard Snapchat user that is in the app all day you likely have skills that other people would like to read up on.
Writing a book is similar to writing a Snapchat blog. If you have published dozens of Snapchat related posts to your Snapchat blog you can combine these to make one book. This is something many bloggers and online journalists have done over the years. You can get double the amount of followers and views and only have to do half the work.
When writing a book look at what has been published already. I can assure you that the Snapchat topic is wide open; hence the reason for me writing this book. I would encourage you to get started today as everyone reading this book will consider writing their own. Come up with a unique way to publish your knowledge about Snapchat and get started writing today.
