Hi guys! With all social media such as Instagram and Snapchat getting bigger and bigger it gets harder to let your blog traffic grow. It’s not so crazy when you think of it; some of your followers feel like they’ve already seen it ‘all’ on your social channels so they don’t feel the need to visit your blog on top of following you on social media. With Snapchat as a newcomer I’ve been thinking of ways to use this medium to our benefit and use it as an extensions to your blog. Here are my 5 tips on how to do it:
1. Promote your new blog post: A way of promoting a new blogpost on Snapchat would be to make a little video of you scrolling down your new post. As a video is very prompt and fast you might interest people to go to your blog and have a detailed look on your outfit or where to get certain items.
2. Show your personality: In blog pictures it’s not always as easy to show your personality and what you’re all about. If you’re like me you probably use Photoshop to create the most beautiful images possible. Which is fun but because everything looks so perfect you might create a distance between you and your readers. As Snapchat is as ‘real’ as it gets it’s fun to showcase your personality and show your readers what you do on a day to day base.
3. Show behind the scenes: The other day I was working on a very big project, soon to be released on the blog and while we were shooting the project I already showed some behind the scenes on my Snapchat. This way you’re readers already get triggered into something big that’s coming so they will make sure to not miss it when it’s on the blog.
4. Interaction: The part that I’m missing on Snapchat is the fact that it’s harder to interact than on other social media. However, if you make little videos on Snapchat you can ask your followers to answer your questions on the latest post on your blog. This way you create traffic to your posts and you have a new way of interacting. Another thing I’m going to do is a Q&A on my blog where you guys can ask the questions and I will be answering them on Snapchat!
