There are over 100 million daily active users and 400 million snaps per day. One of the fastest growing networks is Snapchat. If you travel, attend events, exhibit at trade shows etc. you could be using this platform and actively promoting your brand! Snapchat gives you the option to reach a different demographic of people. Believe it or not this app is taking over social medias such as Twitter.

Social Media Rotating

Twitter has been a great way to get your brand out to the public. Not only does it give you the option to reach people personally, it is an outlet to simply promote your brand.  You can almost call it “rotating.” When a new hype social media outlet is created it will start trending. A great example is Myspace to Facebook. Myspace arrived which led to a future Facebook which was a new and improved version of sharing who you are with your peers. Snapchat is a combination of Instagram and Youtube. You have the options to personalize your photos as well as videos, there are fun filters to use, and most of all, everyone is doing it! This app is really taking over.

Millennials and The Importance

The best news is that Snapchat is absolutely free. Free advertisement is always great advertisement. Millennials are primarily using this application, but it is also reaching an older demographic as well. During this day and age, millennials are starting to just ask for people’s’ Snapchat username instead of sharing phone numbers or even Facebook! While you are at a corporate event, majority of the time you take a business card to obtain new leads. As time goes on and new apps like Snapchat are created, business cards will become obsolete.

With the internet at our fingertips, business cards are downright quaint in their lack of detail and dimensionality. If we want to know about someone these days, we can Google them and sift through their tumblr, browse their Twitter or read about them on-line.  It is very common to loose business cards as well. If you have a Snapchat that documents your journey through your evening, you can add new contacts in a timely fashion without missing another lead.
