There are a few snaps you can create on Canva and upload (using Mish Guru) just the once but reuse over and over again. We call these the staple snaps for the perfect Snapchat story recipe.
THE WELCOME SNAP
We recommend creating a welcoming snap, some brands have decided to use their snap codes to intro their stories- anything that represents your brand works.
THE CTA SNAP
Give your followers a call to action- tell them to send a snap into your channel for a chance to be featured on your story. Tip: Include a small prize incentive to sweeten the reason to send in (people can be lazy).
THE HEADS UP SNAP
This snap kills two birds with one stone. 1. Because Mish Guru screenshots all content it receives its good to let your followers know. 2. Currently there is no legislation around using Snaps for marketing purposes but notifying followers that you may use their content is the safe way to play the Snapchat game!
HOW TO: 3 EASY STEPS
Reach Canva here and create an account or log in with Facebook.
1. CHOOSE YOUR OWN DIMENSIONS
Canva has a plethora of templates, not one for Snap (yet) so you'll need to head to the top right hand corner and hit 'Use custom dimensions'.
The correct dimensions for your Snaps are 1080 px x 1920px.
2. UPLOAD YOUR BRAND KIT
Canva allows you to design with your brand in mind. You can upload your colours, logos and fonts so that everything you produce is 100% on brand and 100% awesome.
3. GET CREATIVE
Select a background, pop your logo on the snaps and make the most of the elements section which boasts plenty of shapes, frames and icons to make your snaps stand out! When you have finished- export your snaps as JPEG so you can upload to Mish Guru!
