Snapchat was released in 2011. At the beginning it was mostly used by teenagers but not anymore. In fact as all the social networks its users have aged. Now grown ups are using it. So guitar Snapchat? Really? Yes. As the great online marketing guru Gary Vaynerchuk advocates, Snapchat is an excellent tool because it allows you to get the attention of your followers.
What is cool about Snapchat also is that it allows to post super fast a short video content to engage with your community. As what you post has a lifetime of 24h, you don't need to worry too much about leaving shaky video for ever on the Internet. As long as you push quality content, breaking news and relevant information, you will be just fine. It's a great way to provide value to your followers.
