How to use Snapchat
How are brands using Snapchat?
Way to keep followers updated and informed on the organizations’ projects by “Live Snapping” events

NBA kept fans up to date on the MVP announcement of Kevin Durant

Engaging visuals and frequent updates make followers feel involved in a way that Twitter or Instagram cannot
Popular Snapchatter hired to represent brands like Disney and Taco Bell

Sent out a snap to followers requesting that they send him Snaps of themselves made to look like dinosaurs. He would screencap and resnap his favourite

Got followers engaged and interested

Able to draw interest from people who otherwise might not have noticed him
It is reported that 58% of college students would likely purchase a product from a brand if they were sent a Snapchat coupon

Frozen yogurt brand 16 Handles held promotion where users could receive a coupon if they sent a Snap of themselves at a 16 Handles location. The company would then Snap them a coupon to be used at checkout.
