Hey, hey, hey! Well, here we go, we’ve made it to Friday and we’re in the home stretch. Before I get out of here for the weekend, I wanted to take a few minutes and share with you, a few of the ways that we use Snap Chat in my small business.
There might still be a few people left on earth that don’t have a clue what the Snapchat app is, or what it does. I’m willing to bet that many of those people are small business owners that refuse to stay up on their tech game.
Here’s the Wiki on Snap Chat:
Snapchat is a photo messaging application (“app”) developed by Evan Spiegel and Robert Murphy, then Stanford University students. Using the application, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients.
How Snap Chat Became Part of My Team
Snap Chat Takes the “Boring” Out of Communicating
Sure, any text messaging app lets you add sexy little emojis, but Snap Chat adds fun to the game.
Problem Solving is a Snap When You Use Snap Chat 😉
Sounds ridiculous, but it’s true. The amount of phone calls that I get with questions like, “What blue wire?”, have dropped at least 40% since we incorporated Snap Chat into the communication mix.
Merchandising Updates Have Never Been Easier
Now, when one of my team members does a merchandise reset, they can send me a quick Snap Chat with the final product. Doing so reduces the amount of merchandising surprises that I walk into significantly. This isn’t limited to my associates, as I also send a Snap Chat or two when I re-merchandise a section so that the team at my other salon know how it needs to be done.
Group Messaging with Snap Chat Blows Away Mass Text Messages
Putting together a :10 second Snap Chat and sending it to multiple associates takes all of about :13 seconds. No fumbling through messaging apps trying to select everyone that needs to be messaged. No annoying message response overloads when others reply to group messages.
Snap Chat is Short and Sweet
Common, you know the little ghost is pretty sweet on the eyes. Anyway, let’s calm down and focus here. Because Snap Chat messages are limited to :10 seconds, it means all communication done through Snap Chat is short, and sweet! Just the way they should be
