Learn how to create a Snapchat business account in five easy steps.

Creating a Snapchat business account can help your business expand its online presence and engage with your customers. Snapchat is a social media mobile application that allows people to take pictures, edit them and share them with other Snapchat users. Snapchat was the first platform to offer the novelty of ephemeral messaging; allowing users to share pictures and texts that will expire or disappear after a while or after being viewed. 

As a business owner, you can use Snapchat to engage with your customers by building a following, creating ads, posting awesome pictures (or “snaps”, as Snapchat calls it), create exclusive Snapchat geofilters for your business and more. With Snapchat, you can promote and market your business to a user base that exceeds the 300 million count. Now, we’re going to help you take the first step: create a Snapchat business account.
