“My aim: to make at least 1 person laugh a day!” read’s p0k3rman’s bio on Facebook.
We sat down with Si Gale to uncover why he thinks Snapchat IS the platform to use, and how he is using it to make great connections.
SCSMM: How did you first discover Snapchat?
I remember seeing a friend post a status inviting people to follow him, so I thought ‘hey, what’s this all about?’…..that was over 4 years ago!
SCSMM: Why do you think Snapchat has taken off?
It is a unique platform that gives you complete freedom to connect with the world. Also by allowing you to post stories tailored to each individual style.
SCSMM: What do you like to Snap about?
I like to post stories with a comedy theme, generally making a fool out of myself. I also post topics that a lot of folk. An relate to. I occasionally post things that are important to me and to raise awareness on stuff some might not feel comfortable talking about.
SCSMM: Why should everyone follow you on Snapchat and watch your stories every day?
My aim is to make at least one person laugh a day. I post daily and I always respond to snaps. I just can’t put my phone down!
SCSMM: What would you recommend someone do just starting out on Snapchat?
Play around with it first, get to know what the app can do for you. Think about your style and who you want to engage with…..oh and make sure you got plenty of data as it’s so addictive.
SCSMM: Have you ever been hired to represent a brand or product on Snapchat?
No, but would love to if the opportunity came my way. It would be a real pleasure.
SCSMM: How do you develop your Snapchat stories? Are the spontaneous or do you plan them out?
I do a bit of both. I think the off-the-cuff snapchats are just as funny as a well planned story, but viewers don’t always know where a story will go if spontaneous, neither do I!
SCSMM: What else do you do? What is your day job / Business?
Yawn…..I’m a team leader in an office which gives little pleasure….social media is where my head is at.
SCSMM: How do you think Snapchat has helped your life and business grow?
It’s given me more self-confidence and I’m no longer camera shy. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good reaction to my snaps, it’s rewarding…
SCSMM: How is the Snapchat community different from other social networks?
You connect with real people who share similar views or values. People from all over the world connect and view your stories. You rely on your viewers to recommend you to other snappers, which helps your network grow further.
SCSMM: Who are YOUR favorite influencers on SnapChat?
This is so tough!…ok, here goes:
