“Snapchat is pointless!” I used to be one of those people chanting that statement anytime the app was brought up. I thought it could never be for me until my friend Ruby convinced me to give it a try.
Downloading the app has been one of the smartest decisions I’ve made all year. I love being a Snapchatter! Since joining and getting over the obnoxious but small learning curve, Snapchat has become one of my most favorite social media platforms.
My approach to Snapchat is to give my community a behind the scenes look into my life as a woman with a full life, family, and thriving business.
I use it specifically to:
- Meet new people
- Showcase my brand and business
- Build the know-like-and-trust factor with potential clients
- Have a little fun with filters!
Filters are the best part of Snapchat because they allow users to let their silly side out! It’s fun because it’s life happening in real time and everything is not as staged like it is on Instagram and Facebook. There are also geofilters, which add to your Snap story because you can show your pride or excitement for a particular city, place, or location.
Thanks to Ruby’s new ebook, “Be Dope: Boost Your Snapchat Game,” I was able to apply for and receive approval for my first geofilter all in the same day! She shares everything you need to know about how to get your own filter in simple, easy to follow steps.
The ebook is visually appealing and full of examples of what to do. After reading it I decided to put her tips to the test and apply for a filter for our road trip to Vegas. I was shocked to get an approval in less than an hour!
The only thing I didn’t do myself was design the filter. I had someone on Fiverr do that for me and even that only took less than thirty minutes! Next time, however, I may hire my other, super talented friend to do it or attempt to create something cute myself in Canva. Ruby offers tips on that in the ebook as well.
If you have a special event, wedding, party, or trip coming up and are a Snapchat user, try your hand at getting a custom Snapchat Geofilter! It’s a really cool experience. I loved seeing mine when I was on my trip and so many people asked how I made it happen.
You can get an instant copy of Be Dope to download right here. Be sure to let Ruby know I sent you and don’t forget to let me know when your new Snapchat Geofilter goes live so you can show it off!
