So this is just a fun blog post today introducing my readers to the next big thing with Snapchat, Emoticode. So hopefully you already follow me on snapchat but if not here is my lovely snapchat handle (styleonedge). I love snapchat because it is a great way for me as a blogger to connect with my readers on a more personal level. Everyone edits Instagram and blog posts but there is no editing on snapchat so you can really see raw images of the person you are following. If you don’t already have the social media app, you should definitely download it immediately and follow along. So with Emoticode for snapchat, I am now going to post my favorite items, what I am wearing, my favorite products, etc. on my snapchat each day and add an Emoticode to every post so you can shop items.
What is an Emoticode you ask?
Well Emoticode is a way for bloggers like myself to add shop links to our snaps so that you can just screenshot the snap and then shop the product on an app. Pretty simple huh? It is a hidden URL using emoji and alphanumeric characters in captions and comments. So be on the look out for an Emoticode on my upcoming snapchat posts.
How does it work for snapchat followers?
Step 1: Download the ShopStyle iOS app to be able to scan the Emoticode that I pasted into my snapchat post.
Step 2: Screenshot my snaps that include the following emojis: GHOST & ROCKET SHIP
Step 3: Upload the screenshot into the ShopStyle app to shop my snapchat post! To do this: Open the ShopStyle iOS app and click the “…more” button in the bottom right corner of the app. Then click on Emoticode option at the top of the list and then simply import the screenshot photo with an Emoticode into the app and ShopStyle scans the Emoticode and provides you with the shop link.
Only 3 easy steps to shop all of my snapchat posts. I will also be explaining these steps on my snapchat later today as well so you can see what I am talking about. I actually tried out this technique for shopping a post of one of my favorite bloggers that I look up to and it worked perfectly. If you have any questions or difficulties using the Emoticode app send me a snapchat asking for help! I will try to respond rather quickly to help you guys out!
Remember: Folllow me @styleonedge on snapchat to receive fun updates, announcements and now to be able to shop my daily outfits.
