SnapChat — How My Notifications Are Setup

Keep Notifications Minimal, But Be Aware

I have been using Snapchat for two years now. Professionally, a process that has developed is I use it frequently as a one-on-one and a one-to-many communication tool.

Why? It’s easier than email, texting and it’s much more personal. It has worked really well for me.

As a result, receiving notifications timely of direct messages is very important to me.

Here is my process, as indicated in the image above.

  • The Snapchat app sits on my iPhone 📱 dock. Always visible.
  • Set notifications for “Badge App Icon” only. This is the most subtle notification, but I know I will see it given the placement of the app.

That’s it.

If (as) Snapchat becomes a professional communication too for you, consider this setup!

I have had great success reducing email and texting with this approach and it demonstrates “thinking differently” that others appreciate.

Do you use Snapchat for professional communication? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
