How to Add a SnapChat Code to a WordPress Website
Having a presence on social media is critical these days. A survey conducted by the GlobalWebIndex found that 46% of Gen Z use TikTok – a mobile app that provides short-form videos – while 66% of millennials use TikTok. And that’s not all. According to the report, 66% of Americans use TikTok and another 37% use something similar.
These statistics should terrify your business. While you might rely on your website for lead generation, growth and engagement, the app can do all of that and more. It’s essential that you establish a presence on TikTok because research shows that people who have one are 8% more likely to purchase a product or service compared to those who don’t know about the app.
The First Step to Adding a Snapchat Code to Your Website
TikTok isn’t the only app that can be used to promote your business. In fact, you can use any of the following apps to help increase your website traffic and grow your business:
And if you’re looking to integrate social media into your website or application, you can use a tool like Hootsuite to easily manage multiple profiles from one place.
But, before you add any of those codes to your website or app, you first need to take a few minutes to understand how each one works. This guide will help you get started by explaining how to add a Snapchat code to a WordPress website.
What is a Snapchat Code and How Does it Work?
At the most basic level, a Snapchat code allows you to integrate the fun and interactive features of the app into your website or app. The code then enables users to engage with your content in a brand-new way. For example, if you use the code in your blog posts or on your website’s home page, users can submit photos or videos and winks will appear against a white background.
Additionally, you can use the code within a game, sweepstakes, or loyalty program to engage with your audience in a new way.
Most importantly, you can use the Snapchat code to drive traffic to your website from the app. When a user taps on a wink or a photo in your content, they’ll be taken to your website.
How To Add a SnapChat Code to Your WordPress Website
Now, to add a Snapchat code to your WordPress website, you need to visit the dashboard, click on add new button, and then search for the Snapchat plugin. Once the plugin is installed, you can click on the settings tab and then click on save changes.
Next, you’ll need to visit your website’s homepage and then look for a small chat logo on your site’s right sidebar. Once the logo is displayed, tap on it to open the settings page for the plugin. Here, you can choose which platforms the code will appear in – desktop, tablet, or mobile – and you can enable or disable the code according to your needs.
To begin, let’s say that you decide to enable the code on desktop and mobile. Once you’ve made those selections, you can click on the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page to save your changes and activate the code.
From this point forward, when a user opens Snapchat and clicks on the small logo in the upper right corner of the app, they’ll be presented with a fun and interactive experience that includes a countdown clock and a camera preview with your content.
As you may imagine, this is a powerful tool for attracting and engaging potential customers. And to take that potential a step further, you can also use the code on Instagram and Twitter to draw more people to your website or app. For example, if you want to drive traffic to your blog or website from Instagram, you can use a specific hashtag – like #bloggersrepost – to find other users who are posting about similar topics and use the #bloggersrepost to your advantage by showing your support and encouraging them to check out your blog or website. The same concept applies to Twitter users.
Now, it’s important to understand that you can’t use an Instagram or Twitter code on a blog post. Those are social media platforms, and the code will only work on the app itself. However, if you want to use the code on your home page or a product page, you can use the desktop or mobile version of the site.
Where Can I Use the Snapchat Code?
While you can use the Snapchat code on your home page, you can also choose to use it in a few specific places within your blog posts. For example, you can display the code within a box at the top of a blog post or within a product description.
If you choose to put the code in a box at the top of a blog post, it’ll display in a fun and unique way. And what’s more, the user will also be presented with a short video at the end of the blog post that encourages them to visit your website or app. Similarly, you can include a product description that contains a code to encourage users to visit your website or app.
