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.

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.

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!

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.

– 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.

If you are an entrepreneur of 2016, one thing that you must be doing is getting involved with social media! Specifically Snapchat, which is literally exploding with potential. Snapchat’s story allows you to reach out to every person who has added you, almost forcibly nowadays! It’s virtually a youtube channel that has nearly 100% viewership of its subscribers. Crazy right?
More likely that not, you already have a Snapchat account but the real question… Are you providing true value, entertainment and wisdom to your viewers? If so, are you making your Snapchat story readily available to other users whom could benefit from your story? If not, you should!
You may be wondering how exactly you would get more people to add your Snapchat but there are several ways, three of which I personally recommend your use.
Page Banners -If you already have a well-established blog or social network account, chances are you have a background or banner picture somewhere, often behind your profile picture. Luckily, you can use this to your advantage but placing a small snapcode in the corner of that banner for your followers to view. This is a great method for businesses with facebook pages and twitter accounts.
Other Social Accounts – A classic way to go about building your Snapchat following is by means of social promotion. Hopefully, you already own accounts across other popular social platforms, like Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Use this to your advantage people! If you have 500 friends, don’t be afraid to ask them for the favor of a Snapchat follow. Post on your wall and share it with you favorite fan page. Pin your snapcode to your twitter. Post it on Instagram. You could even change all of your profile pictures to your snapcode. With your beautiful face inside, its perfectly fine!
GhostCodes – Ahhh, I’ve saved the best for last to benefit those of you who intended on reading this Snapchat guide entirely! There is a fairly new Snapchat directory app being used by some of today’s most successful social media stars and marketers. I personally learned about the app from entrepreneur and Social Media expert Joel Comm. It’s one of the easiest ways to discover new snappers who’s stories satisfy your desires and entertainment needs. Not to Mention an easy way to promote your very own Snapchat Account.
GhostCodes, which is invite only (Use the Code Above for Access), allows users to give Kudos if they enjoy one’s story. The more Kudos, the higher valued the Snapchat account and more followers the account will begin to gain due to its increasing publicity!

If you have not already become ferociously curious, if not furious, about why your Snapchat score is so undefined, then you are likely approaching that moment of wonder. More likely than not, you are viewing this post because you have some understanding about what your Snapchat Score is but still have several questions. What does it mean? How do I increase my Snap score? Can my Snapchat Score decrease? To the best of my abilities, I will reduce the heartache of constant research with these simple answers from a few trustworthy sources, including Snapchat themselves!
So starting off, what is a Snapchat Score? For those of you curious, you may reach it by opening the application and visiting the camcording screen, where you would normally take a Snapchat. Upon doing so, slide down on your screen to show the hidden menu from the “top” of your Snapchat app. As shown bellow, you should find a somewhat hidden number. This number is your Snapchat Score!
So what does it exactly represent? Obviously, nobody truly knows. Within Snapchat’s support section, we are told that the Snapscore is simply the solution to a special equation that combines your total number of Snapchat attributions. The vague statement right? Well, obviously, this number is known to represent the sum of snaps that you have both sent and received, including your story contributions. Although this may be true, take a look at the raw statistics of your snap numbers. In order to find out how many snaps you have sent and received, visit your Snapchat history page and in the center of the top green bar.
Take those numbers and add them together. Upon doing so, you will find that your total score various a lot more than your announced score. Why is this? According to Business Insider, Snapchatters have reported having carefully examined the point system during operation. Theories suggest that you receive a single point for each snap you send or open. Also, if you snap to a group of friends, you still only receive one point. Videos have also been reported to be valued up to 3 points. Nothing is set in stone but as of today, you can safely assume that as long as you are the host of an engaging Snapchat account, which is used for both entertainment and communication, your score will continue to increase at an acceptable rate! Other than that, you will find nothing more than theories.
