Snapchat over the past few years has transformed into one of the most powerful social media platforms. Snapchat provides users with texts, emojis, filters, and drawings which they use to embellish their snaps to make them more intimate and interesting.
Just like any other social media platform, having followers on Snapchat is very important especially when you have intentions of going premium. Many people have Snapchat accounts but are struggling to get followers.
On Snapchat, you’re allowed to send images and videos that self – destruct after some time. But hey, what’s the point in posting videos and images when no one is watching?
If you’re one of such people then this post is for you. The tips outlined in this post have been tried and tested and they are guaranteed to fetch you more followers if you apply them.
1. Find your friends and follow them
The first set of people to help you grow your followers are your friends who are already on Snapchat. if you have friends who are on Snapchat, then this shouldn’t be a problem. All you have to do is find them, follow them and ask them to follow back.
You can find your friends by searching for them with their username, from your address book or with their snapcode. Once you find them, follow them and ask them to follow back. If they do the needful and return the favor, you’ll be on your way to growing your followers.
2. Follow and engage with others
Social media is all about engagement and that includes Snapchat. No one likes a ghost follower who doesn’t engage. You have no business following someone when you don’t plan on engaging with their snaps. Once you follow your friends, do well to engage with their snaps. That will encourage them to also engage with yours and even follow you if they’re not already following you.
3. Post often and be interesting
One way of growing Instagram followers is to post more often and consistently. This same formula applies to Snapchat. What you have to know is that Snapchat stories are ordered chronologically (that’s a mouthful of words. I know) but it simply means that the latest stories go straight to the top of your followers’ feed.
So in order for people to see your snaps and engage with them, you have to post more often in order to stay on top of your followers’ feeds. But hold on, that doesn’t mean you should be blasting content left, right and center.
Your content has to be interesting to make people want to engage with it. The type of content you share depends solely on the type of Snapchat account you have. So don’t get up and share anything that comes to mind unless it relates to your account and the direction you want to go with your account.
4. Promote your Snapchat account on other social media platforms
Promoting your Snapchat account on other social media platforms is another sure way of getting massive followers. Just like the way you ask your Facebook friends to follow your Twitter or Instagram account, you can do the same for your Snapchat account.
Provide them with your username or snapcode and promise them a follow back. This will encourage them to follow you quickly. Once they follow you, do the right thing by following them back as promised.
Getting noticed in the saturated Snapchat space can be a very difficult task. The tips outlined in this post will make your work a lot easier.
