    Hi

    I hope this is posted in right place, I am planning on starting an Instagram account to gain followers but slightly more pulled towards focusing more on Snapchat although it seems harder to create content because your pics seem to need to be live, although images can be uploaded and left on story board for 24 hours.

    Has anyone got experience of both social networks and which did you find worked in your favour more in terms of traction, gaining followers/engagement?, suppose it does depend on your niche too as to outcomes, I also feel like Snapchat may be too young, full of tweens so if anyone with experience, it would be great to hear your thoughts, thanks

    It actually depends on what kind of niche you're into.
    Snapchat's current user base ages from 18-25 while Instagram can be used to target way more wider audience.

    Also, Instagram has a lot more users than Snapchat so that helps too.

    Hi thanks for this, Instagram definately seems easier in every way although Snapchat seems less saturated but would take more clever marketing I guess, the niche is adult type

    SnapChat is better to promote adult niches in.

    Avoid NSFW with Instagram as it turns into a headache.

    For Mainstream marketing i'd suggest IG then, but for now SnapChat will teach you enough.

    Instagram is newbie friendly and it has a wide audience. Snap chat requires IM experience to get its traffic convert. I would advise you to stick to Instagram for now.

    For Adult search the BHW forum about it. There was one particular thread that spoke in detail about monetizing Snapchat with adult content.

    snapchat adult content is pretty easy to monetize. but content is a little trickier because audience like to see live vid.

    Snapchat is the "new thing" but much harder to monetize than instagram
