Snapchat Tips, Tricks & Best Practices: 2017 Edition

Snapchat Best PracticesSnapchat has come a long way in the past year. They went public, and yes, they began producing their own Spectacles, but the app also made a number of updates that made it more fun (and valuable) than ever to be an artist on Snapchat.

Once the best kept secret of experimental marketers, it’s now a core component of any social strategy that targets a young, mobile-savvy audience.  And since we last shared our Snapchat best practices, the app has gained 61 million daily users that visit 18 times a day. No big deal.
