Are you looking for ways to attract new Snapchat followers?
While Snapchat can be a great way to get your marketing message out, it’s can be a challenge to get how to catch a snapchat cheater discovered by other users.
That’s why we’re put together this handy little guide to get you started.
1: Add friends from your address book.
On the Snapchat home screen, tap the ghost icon and then tap add friends.
Snapchat will crawl through your address book to see if your contacts’ phone numbers are associated with a Snapchat account. If they are, you can add them as a friend, and when you do, they’ll get a prompt to add you back.
As a business owner, if you have a customer database with phone numbers, you can import that data into your address book on your iPhone or Android and follow the same steps.
And you can also import the phone numbers of Facebook friends to your Android or iPhone address book to see which ones are on Snapchat. Just tap settings, then tap Facebook, then tap Update all Contacts.
2: Let your email subscribers know you’re on Snapchat.
Send out an email to your list asking them to add you to Snapchat. Yes, it almost seems too easy, doesn’t it?
While you’re at it, drop your snapcode in your email newsletters. You’ll pick up new followers each time you send out an email.
3: Add Snapchat to your website.
You probably already have a “Like us on Facebook” and “Follow us on Twitter” on your website. So add your snapcode into the same area, linking the logo to your personalized URL which should look like this: snapchat.com/add/yourusername.
Visitors will be able to scan the snapcodes from desktop or mobile to add them.
4: For Traditional Businesses Only
Put your snapcode on the door, using a tool such as Sticker Mule to print the decal of your snapcode. This will let local customers know you’re on Snapchat, which should get you more local followers.
And if you have business cards, don’t forget to put your snapcode on those as well. This can lead to more dialogue with sales prospects on Snapchat, and more sales.

5: Direct Message Your Snapchat URL
Use a service such as SocialOomph to run an auto-DM campaign, sending a direct message to new Twitter followers with a link to your Snapchat URL. Ask them to add you on Snapchat.
You might say something like, “Thanks for the follow! I post a ton of great content on Snapchat, so if you’re on Snapchat too, please follow me at __ or click ___.”
6: Cross Promote on Every Social Media Channel
You’ll want to make your snapcode clearly visible on each social media channel where your business has a presence.
You can really make your snapcode visible by going dark on all of your other social media channels for one day each week. Simply send out calls to action on those other channels, letting people know you’re putting on quite a show on Snapchat today and they should join you over there.
