The Skinny on Snapchat: Why Your Clients Should (or Should Not) Be On It

presented by the NCC Independent Practitioners Committee
March 2, 2017 -
11:30am to 1:30pm

Snapchat is the fastest growing social network. As of July 2016, more than 200 million users were active on the platform and they were posting more than 400 million rapidly disappearing snaps every day.

For PR professionals, these staggering figures raise some questions:

  • Why would I want to use Snapchat for PR purposes?
  • Who is on Snapchat and how can I connect with key audiences?
  • Where is the platform headed and can it be used for PR advertising?

The session will cover the big picture while also covering basic features and best practices. The program will be presented by a team from Social Driver, a digital marketing agency that helps companies connect with people through websites, social media and video.
