How to create a visually appealing strategy

Sharing images and videos to this popular social network at least once a day can greatly improve your visibility. Here are some tips on how to be successful:

  • Show the human side of your brand -- The type of visual content can vary depending on your brand’s message. You could include a behind the scenes look at your business and its team along with fun product or services information presented in a creative way.
  • Purchase advertising -- A newer feature that is offered to brands is the ability to announce what your business is up to with On-Demand Geofiltered ads. This can include a single image with an announcement or a series of images and/or video that tell a short story.
  • Support other influencers -- By giving a shout out or special invitation to leaders in your industry you can build your community quickly. Find out how your business can be beneficial to them, but don’t overdo your approach in order to maintain a trusted relationship.
  • Create special offers and discounts -- Once you are well established on Snapchat you can begin to provide incentives for your community. This can be exclusive to your followers and provides something of value that they will want to pass along.
