A quick guide on the two best methods for Snapchat users to reach out to start an audience.

New to Snapchat? Need an audience? Snapchat has you covered. Centerlyne does too.

  1. Contacts

Snapchat is operated entirely on smartphones. Surely, before downloading the Snapchat app, you had used your phone for it’s original purpose: calling and texting people. So, you most likely have an extensive list of contacts in your phone. Snapchat can access these contacts and phone numbers and let you know who uses it. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open Snapchat..
  2. Tap the little ghost at the top of your screen
  3. Tap “Add Friends”
  4. Tap “Add From Address Book”
  5. Allow access to your contacts
  6. Add people!

After tapping the little ghost, you will see a handful of other options to add people. Try them out! I mention the “address book” feature because it is the surest way to get your name out there to a large audience of your friends. If you have any questions on how to use these features, feel free to contact us at

  1. Link

I’d be willing to bet that if you have Snapchat, you have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, maybe even Pinterest. Linking your accounts is part of what we do at Centerlyne, and it could help you not only to start your audience, but to build it past the finite group in your phone’s contact list.

It’s simple. Share your new Snapchat username across other social media platforms. Put it in a status update. Tweet about it. Take a cool photo or video on Instagram and put your Snapchat username in the caption. Letting your followers and friends know about your awesome new Snapchat on other social media platforms builds your audience and helps you stay more connected to pre-existing fans of your business.
