"What is this new kind of crazy you speak of?"
Want to be a part of a Social Media Marketing experiment?
Follow my experiences as I document the progress and challenges in my new adventure into the Snapchat world from the perspective of capitalising on yet another social media platform for business...potentially...we will see!
I am prepared to give it a trial run, track the results and share them in this Blog series.
No doubt there will be some confronting challenges along the way!
Can Snapchat be used effectively for business? Can it (and should it) be incorporated into a small or online business social media marketing strategy?
I've had my personal Snapchat account for a couple of years and with this I successfully embarrassed my Gen Y daughter countless times (in public) taking funny selfies whilst out shopping for example... "OMG Mum seriously!" It made me laugh so it was great value. Being goofy, sending your friends funnies and tormenting your teens with this app is great fun! But what else can you do with it?
Come along on a social media research assignment or case study with me (I may be a little too scared to do it on my own) I will be experimenting with how to use Snapchat in business? For example, I will soon be launching a competition for my business and I plan on incorporating Snapchat in the marketing strategy to see what the results are. I will share with you the advantages and disadvantages in my findings.
I'm game...are you?
So I'm not a complete novice at using this app... even at my age yes..... I only know the basics though so this is bound to be yet another learning curve in my start up business journey!
Ready, Set, SNAP!
Entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk recently posted about Snapchat's history and lists some basic user tips which you can find here He also talks about Mark Zuckerberg trying to purchase Snapchat for $3billion when he only paid $1billion for Instagram... hhmmmmmm got to be something of value there me thinks....worth pursuing...or testing it out from an online marketing perspective at the very least!
Still don't believe me that people are talking about using this platform for business?? Read this article from Social Media Examiner for 5 ways to use Snapchat for business
