Ghostcodes has filled Snapchat’s biggest weakness. The inability search a snapchat directory for popular users makes it difficult to grow your following but thanks to Ghostcodes, no longer is that an issue! Now for new and existing ghosties, you ask how exactly do you properly leverage followers from this app. Well, you need to build your accounts credibility and exposure by rising in the ranks of Ghostcodes. To do so, you need a way to gain thousands of Kudos!
The Ghostcode kudos serves as a metric, similar to that of the number of followers you have on Instagram. The more you have, the more rapport you have as soon as someone checks out your profile. By following these tips, you will have the proper techniques needed to gain thousands of those purple hearts.
You have probably noticed a handful of Ghostcode profiles with custom snapcodes, which are actually scannable! Consider designing your own custom snapcode with unique, contrasting colors that pop! People will more than likely click on your profile for the simple reason that your page stands out from the other thousands of users. If you have already uploaded your yellow snapcode and wish to change it, click here to check out the step-by-step guide to update your Snapcode on Ghostcodes.
You need to start small with understanding your Category. Obviously, some categories are more popular than others. Alternatively, you must be careful to avoid overly saturated Categories.
NonProfit, News, & Brands (Less Popular)
After months of using ghostcodes, it is apparent that these profile categories are rarely used compared to others. It’s one thing if you are dedicated to remaining listed under this type of profile but think realistically. If someone is scanning for kudos on Ghostcodes, they will more likely than not to skip over these categories simply because they do not receive many new users, which we will touch on later. You need to be in an active category for the best chance at passive kudos acquisition.
Random (Too Saturated)
On the other side of things, you have no other category like Random. If you stay up to date with this section of Ghostcodes, you will realize that it receives a lot of new profiles ever hour in comparison to others. Such influx causes Random to be oversaturated, not allowing new users to gain the early exposure needed. Additionally, if you do not already have at least 2,000 kudos, you will be quickly lost in the sauce. Don’t get lost in the sauce.
Find your Balance
You want to take advantage of being placed in a category that is active but gives you the ability to be discovered with only a few scrolls down the list of profiles.
Hashtags & Interests
Proper hashtags are everything! They work the exact same way as any other social media. Using them allow you to be filtered out of the 30,000+ Ghostcode accounts. Your account should have a combination of a few popular hashtags followed by niched based tags they define what exactly your account has to offer. Here is a screenshot of the most popular interests.
To add or change your Interests: Visit “My Profile”, Followed by the “Edit My Profile” Box Below Your Profile, then Finally Scroll down until you See “My Interests”
The Dirty Work
Leveraging Your Category
Before moving further to the advanced methods to gain thousands of Kudos, you need to do the tedious task of focusing on your own category. Easier said than done, you need to first visit your category and click the settings icon in the top right corner. After doing so, go to “Most Kudos”. One complete, start the long process of going down the list, giving kudos to each and every account you see.
The goal is getting to the point where you only see purple hearts whenever you visit the random section of your category. Again, this may be a tedious process, so make it a goal to complete but make sure to mix this in with the other practices listed below.
As mentioned above, taking the time to like ever profile on Ghostcodes is no fun. Although this may be true, there is a way to streamline the process and make it much more worthwhile. To do so, focus the majority of your attention to new profiles. Think back to the day that you first downloaded the app. The first people to appear in your notifications were almost guaranteed to receive a Kudo in return from you. Leverage the eagerness of these new ghosties right out the gate. There are two means of doing so and I recommend you use them both.
The fastest and most effective way to receive guaranteed kudos is by revisiting the “Newly Added” section of Ghostcodes. To get there: Tap on the Magnifying Class within the bottom menu and look for the lime green “Newly Added” button in the center of the screen. Doing so will allow you to see the 20 most recent users who have joined the app. Be the first to give them kudos and you can surely expect the same in return.
New Users by Category
Once you have giving kudos to all of the freshest accounts, don’t settle. By visiting each category and changing the filter from “Most Kudos” to “New Users”, you will find all of the older new accounts that you missed. These are still up for grabs! Start taping those hearts for each category until you’ve added all of the new accounts for the previous & current day. Before you know it, the hard part will be out of the way and you will only need to spend a small amount of time on “Newly Added” users daily.
Attention to detail is everything! Fill up the gaps by going to the Magnifying Glass Icon on the bottom bar within the app. Instead of clicking on that lime green box, you are going to visit the “Near Me” tab right under the search bar. It should be a rinse and repeat process by now. Get it over with and give kudos to those around you so that you make an appearance within your area.
Leverage Your Story
Ask for Help!
Close mouths don’t get fed holds true to its word. You have a Snapchat Story. Take advantage of it. Screenshot your Kudos profile, post it as a 3 Second Story, and introduce your current friends and followers to the app. Ask for their support in growing your account or snapchat business by downloading the app, if they have not already, and dropping you a Kudo. Ask nicely while promising to return the favor and you will have first serving on these new Ghostcode users.
From growing your Snapchat account to turning those followers into dollar figures, you now have the knowledge and tools to begin building to make money on Snapchat. Patience is key. Our guides are not get-rich-quick tutorials but rather a road map to obtaining the lifestyle of wealth and security that you aspire to achieve.

Before you make the decision to turn your Snapchat Account into a business asset, you must come to grips with one truth. Any venture you pursue will require hours of dedication and trails. When times get hard, remember that there is going to be someone working harder than you. Let that fact be your drive to succeed. Take this information but don’t archive it. Put it into action and start now!
Obviously, you can’t expect to develop an income with your Snapchat Story if you have not already acquired a large snap following. Take Instagram for instance. A successful business account requires as little as 10,000 followers but more commonly you find accounts that have accumulated 100,000+ followers. Having an audience this large does a couple things. The first, It builds your brand’s rapport or credibility. You know from experience that if someone is promoting a product, the first thing you consider is how many followers the Instagram page already has. Secondly, as mentioned above, having a large following gives you the ability to reach a huge amount of people with little effort. In a way, it serves as free advertisement and exposure to whatever it is you are trying to get out there.
1. Building Your Following
The biggest challenge for a snapchat account is obtaining followers. Snapchat is unlike any other social platform in that you can simply search for a user by hashtag or interest. On a brighter note, here are three proven methods that will enable you to gain thousands of followers on snapchat.
-Ghostcodes: quickly growing popular amongst today’s largest snapchat accounts, Ghostcodes serves as Snapchats first and the only directory, allowing you to discover, follow, and rate snapchat accounts based on various categories and interests. Tap here to create your free Ghostcodes profile. For more information on how to truly optimize your Snapchat following with Ghostcodes, check out my in-depth tutorial to gaining thousands of story views and kudos by clicking here.
-CrossPromotion: More likely than not, you already have a following on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or any other forum or social site. Use this to your advantage. Don’t spam your snapcode to your followers but instead post it as your profile pictures & pin the post at the top of your profile. Be sure to give a little teaser of what people should expect and why they should follow you. The cross-platform promotion will serve as your passive means for Snapchat Follow growth. Plant the seed and let it do its thing.
-Purchase Exposure: By far the fastest way to gain a large following is to purchase exposure. Exposure may take the form of marketing, snapchat takeovers, or features on massive accounts. Here at Bernard Boulevard, we have developed a streamlined method for you to take such route to Snapchat growth, allowing you to accumulate upwards of 5,000 followers in the matter of a single day. For more information on how to purchase exposure for your account, click to review our Promotion Guide & Policies
There are many more methods to Explode your Following Growth which we have reserved for a guide of its own. Once available, I will post the full guide on my Story so stay tuned.
2. Building Rapport
Once you begin building you following, you have to be very cautious of how you manage them. Follow the next three points, and you will surely encourage your audience to trust in your information and be more than willing to take action and even refer your Snapchat Story to their own friends!
-Consistency: You must be consistent in everything you do. Luckily with Snapchat’s story, many of us may naturally update our Followers with a fresh story to watch every day. Don’t feel pressured if you miss a day. Just be sure to Actively update your Snapchat Story throughout the week, even if its a single 10-second video per day, letting your viewers know where you have been.
-Entertainment: We all have friends we follow on Snapchat but never actually watch their story. Do not be one of those people! Make your story special. Make people laugh and keep them engaged. Encourage questions and have fun.
-Short and Sweet: Oddly enough we all have the blessing to enjoy 24 full hours of every day. Keep in mind that this does not give you the right to have a 24-hour-long Snapchat Story. Keep it short and sweet, getting to the point. Don’t be afraid to include variety, with some days only snapping once while another having a 45-second story. Find a balance and don’t make your viewers feel the need to tap the screen when they see your name. Remember, a single picture is worth 1000 words.
Layout the Business Plan
Now that you are on your way to building a loyal following, you should start weighing out your options on what to do in order to generate your first dollar or $10,000 with your snapchat story. Decide on what exactly you want to achieve. Think in the future tense. Listed below are the final steps to give you a direction to making your first sales, commissions, and recurring revenue. Just remember, focus on providing value and the money will follow.
3. Promotions & Takeovers
Start small. With a growing following of trustworthy viewers, you better believe that there are other story viewers that barely have 100 followers. You now have access to a large reach that will be willing to follow anyone that you attribute credit too. Know what your account is worth and you can offer to promote someone’s account or business in return for a premium. Stay true to your word in delivering results and snapchat users will be crawling right back for more.
Struggling to get the first buyer? Offer a free shoutout and watch how amazed they are at the number of followers that they received. Have them record a testimonial, make it public, and put a price tag on your ability to grow people’s story views.
4. Take Advantage of Affiliate Programs
Almost every aspiring entrepreneur has attempted to promote affiliate offers only to fail. The tool that most people have lacked has been a large following. Now that you have built such asset on Snapchat, I highly suggest that you reattempt this method. Depending on the offer, by promoting as an affiliate, you can earn a decent commission and even make a killing by doing so. Don’t make the mistake of spamming. Find a program or offer that aligns with your audience’s interest. Occasionally sprinkle some of your Salt Bae promotions into your daily or weekly snapstories and watch the commission accumulate.
Not sure what product or service to support? I recommend checking out Tecademics, a free-to-join affiliate program that is known as the first school for entrepreneurs. By signing up, you will have countless free video tutorials to help you get started while also teaching you cutting edge ways to ignite your new Snapchat Business. Click now for free access.
5. Build & Sell Accounts
Although you will need a decent amount of followers already to successfully take this route, it can be an awesome asset. A snapchat account with 2,000 Story Views can easily be sold for $200. If you have 10,000-25,000 followers on your main account, it should be a breeze to create backup accounts and promote them for free to build up their followers. Take a backup account, and sell it to a user that wants instant access to daily exposure at the touch of a button. Streamline this process then Rinse & Repeat!
6. Gain Sponsorships
By this time, you should be fairly well known within the snapchat universe. Don’t be surprised when companies and small businesses begin to approach you to market their brand. Know your worth and set your price so that you avoid hesitation when confronted. If you have yet to be contacted and know you can provide value to a business within your expertise, don’t be afraid to reach out to them. Lay out exactly what you have to offer to them and make it clear. As stated in Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” a key point is to always express appreciation and how you will provide value before even asking for the businesses endorsement.
7. Market & Expand your New Business
You’ve done the hard work, time to expand and grow. Nourish your business by reinvesting and reaching out to new markets. If you have not already, consider branching off with a side clothing brand, consulting business, or even directing your massive audience to another means of content like a blog. The expansion is a huge topic for another post but keep it in the plan. Don’t settle for less and continue to build upon your new establishment!
From growing your Snapchat account to turning those followers into dollar figures, you now have the knowledge and tools to begin building to make money on Snapchat. Patience is key.

Happy New Year to all! 2017 is finally here and we are starting out strong, or not so strong, in order to obtain our newly envisioned selves! Whether you are working towards a better body, education, or lifestyle, I have compiled a list of 7 must follow Snapchat accounts that will help keep you on track to meet your goals in 2017! Oh, and while you’re at it, go ahead and Click Here to add me on Snapchat to stay tuned with my daily business, fitness, and leisurely ventures!
– Gary Vaynerchuck is an iconic entrepreneur with much more than business advice. Gary Vee is also known to be straight forward with his advice. Many times he will stress that “You’re going to Die”. He means this not to scare you but to terrify you to the point of action. Complacency and worry can lead to a unfulfilling life. Know that your time on this earth is limited and follow your passion. Don’t rush and the good will follow.
– Third on our list is a brand owned by a 20 y/o girl named Ashley. At the age of 19, she decided to take the leap into entrepreneurship and became highly successful in generated Huge snapchat accounts. She helps businesses and the average snapchat user gain hundreds of follows per day, simply with a few shoutouts! I highly recommend you follow her entertaining and business centered account
– T.j. Hunt, Youtube star, with nearly 600,000 subscribers, and founder of Hunt & Co. is definitely an appealing story to have in your feed. He keeps stories short and sweet while also having fun with his Black Edition GTR, 420 HP BRZ, and a candy red 350z built to drift. More so than the cars he works on, the chemistry between all of his family always leads to laughs.
– John Lee Dumas, the founder of the extremely successful Podcast, Entrepreneur on Fire, is a must follow for anyone with huge goals. Dumas interviews a new entrepreneur every day, revealing vital advice and experience that anyone can utilize in order to build or improve their current business ventures. Instead of repeating information onto his story, John brings a very unique touch to the Snapchat game. He pushes you and challenges you to make your dreams come true. Whenever you find yourself unmotivated, JLD’s story will surely turn your slouch day into a highly productive one!
– Time and time again you will hear about Tai Lopez from me and it’s for a reason. As a successful investor and business owner, he has countless connections to great sources. Disbelievers claim Tai Lopez is a scam but I beg to differ. For starters, if he rented his Aventador, two Rolls Royce, Gallardo, and Maserati every day, don’t you think he would have to have money to do so? Calculate the price to rent one of those for a year then complain. But the truth is, Tai doesn’t offer material attainment. His snapchat isn’t to boast or promise riches. He takes time out of each and every day to coach his viewer. Piece by piece but of course, he’s not going to give everything away for free because people wouldn’t take his advice seriously, the very same reason that I no longer consult for free, although I love teaching people. Time is money and I highly recommend you follow Tai Lopez to help motivate you to tackle all of your fitness and financial goals!
– Sandy is what I like to call more of an underground snapper. Not Viral, but provides wonderful encouragement. Every day, her mission is to meet a new friend, introduce them to her Snapchat Story, and finally to educate them on how to make a positive impact on their lives. She’s also a fitness lover with an entrepreneur spirit.

In a world filled with never ending pessimists, it seems impossible to follow your plans to success without constant discouragement. Every time you get excited about your idea or creation and allow the public to see it, they will mock you. Enjoy the laughs in your face and understand that it is a sign of near breakthroughs and, potentially, a change in your current social class.
Both you and I have goals. Same for the next person but you know what distinguishes our efforts? How we handle those closest to us. People hate change. I mean they dread it! This concept applies to many facets of life but for the purpose of this post, it applies to the social life of young entrepreneurs.
If you have ever begun to talk about accomplishing your goals and dreams around those who love you, you were likely showered with applause and encouragement. What also tends to happen occurs the moment that you begin to take action. For some astronomical reason, many of the people close to will not like it. They realize that you are moving on to bigger and better things, and their fear for your wellbeing settles in.
Many people will be betting on your failure. Assuming the worst outcome for you, many family members result in bashing sprouting entrepreneurs at heart. Others may be jealous that you had the courage to chase your dreams while they continue to lather themselves in soap. These types of people are known as status quo crabs, which leads me to explain what the heck I am talking about.
There is a phenomenon associated with the survival habits of crabs. If you place one crab in a bucket about an arms length or, in this case, claws length, the crab will figure out a way to pinch the buckets rim and escape. You are this crab escaping the standards of society to acquire excellent health, wealth, and happiness.
Now take that same crab, whom we will call Ambition, and throw him back in the bucket. This time, add three more crabs. You will notice that Ambition, knowing it is possible to escape, will again attempt to pull itself out. Instead of successfully avoiding the incarceration of the average, the other crabs with cling onto Ambition’s leg and pull him back into the bucket.
So in life, all will be dandy until the moment you begin to step out of line with average. When you decide to build that hypothetical invention or start a motivational Podcast, people will pick at your efforts and cause you to second guess yourself. DON’T. Whether intentionally or not, they will do everything in their power to keep you on their level. This applies to business, talent expression, relationships and more.
Follow your optimistic intuition and take action. Don’t delay and especially don’t allow others to influence your next move!

Blogs grow into masterpieces not only by the content they provide but the quality of that content. If your well thought out blog post suffers from errors in spelling and grammar, your readers would be turned off. You can have the most influential and motivating content but neglecting to critique your content carefully can be detrimental to both your blog’s reputation and future. Don’t get me wrong! Producing amazing content contributes highly to growth, but errors are just unprofessional.
Now you know just as well as I, editing is tedious. It’s boring, annoying and very time-consuming. Most new bloggers and authors understand that it is an essential step to take before publishing, but we are only human. Chances are, you are not a world-class editor, or else that would be your profession! With that being true, it is very likely that if you go back to the last post you published, you will find an error. If you don’t, have a friend read it and they will find one for you.
The point is, if you don’t have a professional editor, the errors will find their way into your blog posts some way or another. So invest a few hundred dollars into a professional that knows what they are doing!
Unless you are already a successful entrepreneur, author or have already created a budget for such expenses, don’t invest all of your money into a world-class editor. Why not? Because there is a program for your browser, that will provide the same editorial service for free! It’s called Grammarly!
The day I discovered Grammarly’s proofreading software was the day that the majority of my blogging anxieties vanished. Literally!
No longer did I have to worry about spending half an hour to edit exceptionally well. More likely than not, I found myself previously choosing to do a quick, ineffective skim as opposed to the less fun act of carefully thought out revising. Grammarly does it for me, and the only thing I have to do is click a button to correct!
Honestly, I wish I would have known about the free editing program sooner. I’m sure my blog would have developed a much larger audience had I done so. Nevertheless, I do have to thank John Lee Dumas for recommending Grammarly on his Podcast, EoFire.
So bloggers, new and old, understand that it is rare that I recommend programs only because I don’t personally use them. In fact, this is my first “review” because I use Grammarly, ALOT. I believe in their system and can honestly say it will make your writing career 100 times easier!
As I have said before and will continue to stress, the integrity of your blog’s future relies on quality. Grammarly will give you THAT quality which will distinguish your blog posts from the rest of the self-publishers with a professional look!
Now, while the Grammarly’s free version is fantastic, it has its limitations that the premium version breaks through! Luckily, it won’t break the bank.
So what exactly will Grammarly’s Premium do that the free version won’t. Well, it will not only correct common issues with spelling and comma splicing, but it will begin to act as a real editor!
Advanced issues including word overuse, sentence fragments, passive/active voice misuse, contraction detection, punctuation and many more hidden errors that we often ignore or don’t even realize are there.
Also includes a proactive thesaurus, vocabulary enhancement, and context-optimized synonym suggestions.
On top the professional writing advice, Grammarly’s premium checks for plagiarism!
Standard errors such as spelling, pronoun use, and word choice.
So as you can see, premium offers much more than a simple grammar check. Grammarly will accurately proofread your work and make suggestions that only professional editors and writers could do with ease.
Students, bloggers, and authors, I highly recommend trying Grammarly for free! You will love it! If you want that professional editorial touch to make your blog even more appealing to promote audience growth, go premium!
The only true complaint I can think of is the fact that it may occasionally get confused with the point you are trying to get across. Grammarly accurately detects how you use various words so if it does not know how to correct and error, chances are your readers will also struggle with grasping the point you are trying to get across.
With that being said, I highly recommend that you give your post or paper a final glance after utilizing Grammarly’s expertise just in case you find the need to reword a sentence.
If you have tried and failed, you’re on the right path. So many people, young and old, get into business and expect smooth sailing but realistically, the life of an entrepreneur is all but easy. Don’t become blinded by other’s success. Instead, be aware of their underlying efforts. It’s all about what you do behind closed doors. When nobody else is watching. More importantly, when you feel like your working your ass off but still lacking true results.
My first time attempting any form of business was at the age of 16. Nieve, I trusted various internet programs that promised riches. Whether they worked or not is up for debate but every single one I opted into failed to truly educate me on proper business ownership. More times than not, I hadn’t even known what product I was selling. This is known as a common rookie mistake, which happens to be very common among millennials.
Naturally, I gave up. I didn’t get the results and I quit saying, “Its Impossible” and “I’m too Young” when in reality, the only issue that I had didn’t revolve around the size of the paycheck but instead the size of my desire.
Your desire to succeed in life has to be extraordinary. You have to want to win so bad that you will effortlessly go out of your way to becoming great. To become great, failure is simply not an option. Failure should instead be a part of the journey. As long as you expect it to happen, you will be malleable enough to cope and adjust with what is known as adversity.
Entrepreneurs, students or anyone that realizes their dreams rely on their daily actions must take it upon themselves to demand success at all costs. If it takes 2 years of grinding your ass off to make your first dollar, so be it as long as there is much more where that came from.
Bloggers know this feeling. Understanding that in order to build that seven-figure business, they must be willing to blog for the first year practically for free. Some call it voluntary, but I call it an investment. An investment for your future.
So learn to invest in yourself. Take the fall and just trust that it will pay off sooner or later. Success is like a parabola. It may start out incredibly slow but just know, when it catches its second wind of momentum, it’s going to take off!

Surround yourself with who you want to be like. Surround yourself with who you see yourself in. Surround yourself with love. Surround yourself with people who care. Surround yourself with optimism. This is why I surround myself with super successful people and the peers in my close circuit, which are considered family. Family isn’t always blood. I want to be like them, I see myself in them, I love them and we all share a mutual care for each other’s well-being. This what I call the Circle of Optimism.
This isn’t about searching for positivity and seeking people to be like. Heck no. You won’t find the person you want to become in someone else by seeking and interviewing them (sarcastically speaking) No, you have to WORK on YOURSELF first and then you will see in YOU who you are becoming and then the universe will attract like minded people around you naturally and subconsciously speaking.
Once you have worked on yourself and have a great understanding of who you are, then you’ll be able to train your mind to react to certain things in a way in which the general public hasn’t figured out yet. You’ll find yourself less angry, less sad, and more understanding of another people’s point of view. Overall, the more understanding you have about another person’s perspective, the more genuine you become and the more value you bring to someone’s life.
So remember before you can even have a circle of optimism you must bring value to your circle. By bringing value to your circle you will allow people to gravitate and give you that same value. Life is all about value. As humans with different minds, we all value something different. So when you feel like you are on the right path and know the person you wanna become, apply 51% of the value in the relationship whether it’s a friendship or a relationship. By adding value you become a priority. By becoming a priority, people tend to care for you a little more and you become important. When you become important, that’s when you are cared for, and when you are cared for that’s when you have found your circle of optimism.
“Make me better.” That is a phrase that I say to every person I have met every since I changed what I value in my life. It all started with me valuing myself. If you haven’t figured out the common denominator of in this post. Well let me explain, this post is about having great people in your life that inspire you. But in order to be inspired, you need to know where you are going. That is so important for the change in your life. Once you know where you are going you will see and acknowledge the people you meet going in the same direction that you are. If you doubt this philosophy ask yourself, how many people do you meet everyday or better yet how many people do you get a number from and never call, never text, never email? But when you get that person that you know has value and can help you in a way that no amount of money can even compare to. Meaning in a relationship or friendship but in my world a brotherhood, no money can even compare to.
So value a person’s knowledge and ethical values because those things are far more valuable to you than what money can do for you. It’s egregious in my book to think anything other than that. Wisdom is power. Be uncommon.
