Several reports indicate that the average Pokémon GO user spends between 3-5 hours daily on the app surpassing the likes of Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram.

So how can local business owners take advantage of this trend? Simple, through Facebook ad targeting, incentives ("Poke-deals"), and Snapchat.

In case you were wondering, it is possible to upload photos and videos from your iPhone camera roll to Instagram Stories.

If you are still unsure about why Snapchat has become such a force in the last 6 months, here’s a few reasons:

1. It’s unique 24-hour content lifespan creates a sense of urgency, engagement and consumption which no other social network provides
2. Hundreds of brands such as: Coca-Cola, Taco Bell, Forbes, and MGM Resorts are all in
3. 77% of Snapchat users in the U.S. are 18 – 55+ years old – contrary to popular believe Snapchat isn’t a social network for teens
4. 200 million active monthly users & 8 billion daily video views
5. Engagement + attention + relationships = conversions

Personally, in the last 18 months of using Snapchat I have seen my social presence reach new heights. I’ve been offered paid speaking opportunities, jobs and most importantly grown relationships with key individuals in my industry via Snapchat.

Snapchat isn’t a fluke, it’s not MySpace, in fact it’s in a league of its own.
I believe in this platform just like I believed in LinkedIn in 2008, Twitter in 2009, and Facebook in 2010.

If you are using social media in your business and NOT on Snapchat, here’s the #1 reason why you need to pay attention…

More than 60% of smartphone users in the U.S. age 13 to 34 are on Snapchat, this demographic is expected to outspend Baby Boomers by 2017 – that’s less than 9 months from now.

If you missed out on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, DON’T miss out on Snapchat – you will regret it if you do.

My goal is not to help you monetize Snapchat but rather help you understand how it works, it’s set of tools & features, and teach you everything that I’ve learned over 3+ years of being on the platform.

P.S. ~ I’ll be speaking about Snapchat for Business at this years Social Media Marketing World, I hope you can join me in San Diego!
