1. Sell products
Social media is an unprecedented powerful channel. You can reach billions of people worldwide! Access to these channels is also completely free. The advantage is that a social medium is also much more personal than, for example, a random online banner or an old-fashioned folder in the mailbox. It is even more personal and direct than e-mail! This means that people are more inclined to read it, and actually do something with it.
In short: a channel like Snapchat is ideal for selling something. Whether it is a product or a service that does not matter. Do you have your own company or do you work as a self-employed person then you do well to include social media in your sales strategy. Whether you sell directly via Snapchat or refer people back to your website or webshop for example, that does not really matter.
2. Affiliate marketing
In our opinion this is the best way because this is possible for everyone to start quickly and easily! With affiliate marketing you do not need a product to sell, but you are going to advertise for those of other companies! And as soon as you sell something via your snaps, you get a percentage for it. You do not have to do anything about ordering, packing, delivery etcetera, you really only do the marketing.
Sometimes you do not get paid at a sale (sale), but also for a lead (such as a quotation request or registration newsletter) and even for a single click on your snap to a website of the companies you advertise for.
You can easily start affiliate marketing by joining Daisycon. This is a special network that you can become a free member of, and so you can start working for 1600 companies and campaigns. They also keep track of your earnings and collect the money for you from the companies. So you do not have to worry about it, it automatically appears on your account.
This method can be so successful that there are already a lot of people who have made it their job, or even started their own company. You can focus entirely on one thing: marketing. And if you are good at it, you can generate a lot of turnover without any costs and without any risk. Read more tips on our special page about affiliate marketing.
3. Paid promotions
If you have a very popular profile with many followers you can also choose to get paid before you place an advertisement. This way you are always assured of income. The rewards here are also considerable, because you can then just ask thousands of euros. You will see that companies automatically come to you if you have a lot of followers. We can give you more tips on how to do this.
4. Sell drawings
You can edit the messages you send with effects, filters, add texts or drawings. Personalizing your photos is so popular that people even want to pay for it, especially for the drawings. This means that if you are good at this you can keep a pocket money on that.A well-known example is a Belgian student who earned 200 euros more in the first month here.
The best thing about Snapchat is the Snapcash feature. Especially if you want to earn money. With Snapcash you can transfer money via snapchat to each other! So you can immediately have people pay via Snapchat for your product or drawing.
6. Get many followers
Whatever method you use to earn money through Snapchat, they are all more successful when you have more friends and followers. Because the more you know, the more people you reach with your snaps. And so you also have more earnings. A few tips:
- Promote your snapchat channel on other platforms. So your website or other social media;
- You can use a QR code to your profile, also called snap code;
- Turn on your network, so your friends and business relations to promote your channel;
- Publish stories too. A story is a collection of snaps that can be seen 24 hours;
- Advertise through Snapchat to gain publicity.
Getting followers is important, but they may be even more important! Because only then will your reach grow. If you lose more followers than you get, the mopping with the tap is open:
- Post regularly new messages to keep people active, preferably every day!
- Do not just try to sell, make sure your content is also valuable to keep watching. Give information, be educative or give people a smile!
- Try to be consistent in a particular subject or niche. By a clear theme, people know what they are up to and are less likely to decline.
7. About Snapchat
Snapchat is a social media that is focused on sharing images and videos. These temporary messages are called “snaps”. The uniqueness of the application is that these shared messages disappear within a few seconds. This varies between 1 and 10 seconds. The files also disappear from the Snapchat servers at that time. You can, however, save the photos by, for example, taking a screenshot, but beware the sender gets a message from that. The app became popular because it could be used well to make and send selfies, and the app is also used extensively for sexting ….
Snapchat exists since 2011 and already in 2013 both Facebook and Google tried to buy the company for 3 billion dollars. However, these offers were refused. At the moment they have 187 million users who are active every day in 22 different languages.
