    Does anyone here have experience with monetizing snapchat? I've got an account which gets around ~6k views per story and i'm monetizing with a mobile locker, however the payout's arent too great! I've tried 2 networks and these were my stats from 1 day..

    Network 1 | 319 clicks | 29 leads | $50.44
    Network 2 | 143 clicks | 44 leads | $38.10

    I'm getting around ~850 page views on the lander.

    Just out of curiousity how long did it take you to reach 6k views on each story and how many times are sending them per week?

    Took me 2 days to build to 6k views per story, it's increasing everyday. I also use a php script to update the story every 2-3hours (google snapchat php to update from pc).

    EDIT: Current stats today are

    Network 1 | 94 clicks | 30 leads | $23.30
    Network 2 | 65 clicks | 12 leads | $11.70

    So a little update. The day is nearly over and here are the stats for today

    Total Story views - 6.7k
    Total views on lander: 986
    Network 1 | 223 clicks | 83 leads | $67.90 (main traffic, uk,us etc)
    Network 2 | 152 clicks | 24 leads | $24.80 (all other traffic)

    If anyone has any experience with monetizing SC and can boost these numbers up, would be greatly appreciated!

    Are you sending them the same link on every story?

    I switch the link up every now and again, I try not to post the link "too often", maybe every 2hrs i'll shove the link in. I've actually woke up to 50$ today so might be a 100$ day today!

    This sounds actually pretty good! $50 a day is alright and scalable.

    Definitely scale. If you can get 100 accounts doing 6k views each you'll be sitting nice.

    If they are majority men you can try with dating offers.
    I had around 0.30-0.40 EPC with direct linking.

    Maybe try changing your angle.

    <?php
    require_once("src/snapchat.php");
    $snapchat = new Snapchat('username', 'password');


    $id = $snapchat->upload(
    Snapchat::MEDIA_IMAGE,
    file_get_contents('url_of_image_to_upload')
    );


    echo $snapchat->setStory($id, Snapchat::MEDIA_IMAGE, 10);
    ?>

    You can get the PHP snapchat lib from googling php snapchat :)

    Also broke $200 yesterday :)

    What type of offers are you sending? I have a huge twitter following of teens, guessing its similar to demo you are sending to, but not sure what the best offers are to send to this crowd. You can DM me if you dont want to say publicly. Id greatly appreciate it.
