We all know that Snapchat is a huge medium to amass a large following very quickly. In this article, we are going to give you 5 surefire ways to increase your following for your personal or business account.

  1. STORYTELLING: Snapchat is an app that is centered around creating stories. As well all know stories have a BEGINNING, MIDDLE AND END. Using this format will better help you engage with you feed.
  2. EMOTICONS: Yes! we all know those cute little emoji’s we use on a daily basis to our friend and family! Using emoji’s on Snapchat is a creative way to bring more life to your story or even create a amazing snapterpiece! Use emoji’s to help tell your story and have fun with them. The intuitive design of the emoji’s allows the user to expand/decrease the size of the emoji and even can be used as an filter!

THEME: Create content that you can build a strong community that will allow you to engage and create a buzz for your feed. FOR EXAMPLE: my scheduling is as follows:

____________________

TUESDAYS — ‘’TALL TALE TUESDAYS’’ (Creative comedic stories about personal tall tales)

THURSDAY- ‘’THROWBACK THURSDAYS’’ Stories that allow me to introduce content from the past

FOLLOW FRIDAY BEHIND THE SCENES — I am the official snapchat / film cinematographer for my brother IAMJEFFTHORNTON | I cover his tips, tricks as he introduces the top snappers to follow.

SUNDAY CINEMA — I build emoji art for popular shows like FULLER HOUSE or come up with content of my favorite movies and engage to see what movies you watching or recommend.

4. USE MUSIC- The way I accomplish using music is by using my SPOTIFY on my phone. I am able to play out the track in my IPHONE 6S and return back to snapchat and record the music to my story live. This brings a real cinematic feel to your stories. From my understanding I heard this work with apple Itunes as well. I have only tried with Spotify and Soundcloud and they both work FANTASTIC!

QUICK TIP: FROM A COMPUTER (LAPTOP OR DESKTOP) YOU CAN LAY YOUR PHONE NEXT TO THE SPEAKER TO GET THE AUDIO FROM THE SPEAKER SOURCE OF A COMPUTER.

5. EQUIPMENT: If your looking to step your production game up a notch. heres a list of some items that will help your Snapgame!
