While Twitter and Instagram were the first big social media websites that encouraged users to follow other users it is now Snapchat that is getting the most attention with the following or adding as friends. Snapchat Stories have changed everything when it comes to social media and online broadcasting. Unfortunately, there is no real way to gain a following on Snapchat unless you share your screen name in other places. So, here are some ways for you to get more people to follow you on Snapchat.
Add the QR Snapchat Code to Blogs and Websites
The first thing to do is to take a screenshot of your QR Code and share it on a personal website or somewhere that a lot of Snapchat users visit. It will look like this:
By adding my QR Code to some of the other Snapchat articles I have written I have been added by over 1,000 people. I have no desire to add people as I don’t even leave stories or use Snapchat other than to see what is going on with the app and with the stories Snapchat submits to everyone. If you post your QR code screenshot on websites that people are searching you will find that you add quite a few people quickly.
Add Your Snapchat Name to Your Twitter and Instagram Profiles
This is a no brainer but a lot of people so not think about this. When you update your Twitter and Instagram profiles make certain to add your Snapchat name. It also never hurts to tweet out that you have a funny Snapchat Story for people to watch every once in awhile. I have seen some Twitter accounts add their Snapchat username in the location of the Instagram photo. This might be an effective way to let people know your Snapchat name every time you share a great picture on Instagram.
This is not limited to Instagram and Twitter. You can add your Snapchat name to Pinterest, Facebook, Tumblr, Ask.fm or any social media website in which you have a profile. If people follow you anywhere on the Internet I would strongly encourage you to add your Snapchat screenname or username to your bio.
Although you may think that everyone has Snapchat that is simply not the case. You may want to tell your friends to add Snapchat and you can be the first person they add or follow. If you are really good with your stories they may be hooked after the first day. When you are sitting around the lunch table or at Chick-Fil-A or Starbucks tell your friends to add you on Snapchat.
If they have your phone number they can add you easily but some people have turned this function off. If you have a lot of people that have added you or followed you there is a good chance you may not even know who has added you. Ask around and tell people they need to follow you for your funny stories. Also, get your friends to promote your Snapchat account because you share some amazing stories.
