How to Get and Keep a Subscribe Button On Snapchat
Getting a Snapchat subscribe button is important if you want to stand out and grow on Snapchat. Without that subscribe button, people won’t take you as seriously and are less likely to follow you or add you as a friend.
In order to get a subscribe button on Snapchat, you must have a creator account in good standing. After you have a creator account you will be able to activate the subscribe button in your settings. Below I’ve put together the step-by-step directions in order to get a subscribe button on Snapchat.
Step 1: Get a Snapchat Creator Account
Getting a Snapchat creator account is the first step in getting a subscribe button.
As a creator, you will also have access to many more benefits like analytics, user roles, and you’ll even be able to add your website URL to your profile.
Requirements to be a Snapchat Creator
- Have at least 100 subscribers
- Have a Snap Profile for at least 1 week
- Have at least 1 bi-directional friend
Upon reaching the above requirements you may have to wait for up to a month before your account is processed into a creator account as Snapchat upgrades creator accounts on a recurring schedule.
Step 2: Maintain a Good Account
Maintaining a good Snapchat account is essential if you want to get that coveted subscribe button. Snapchat will review your account to ensure it’s up to their standards.
If you’re being followed by fake accounts, aren’t receiving any views, or are violating their terms, you’ll be denied.
Step 3: Activate Button in Settings
After gaining access to a Snapchat creator account and getting approved, you’ll finally be able to activate the subscribe button.
How to Activate the Subscribe Button on Snapchat
- Open Snapchat
- Tap your profile picture
- Select “Build a following on Spotlight”
- Tap “Create”
- Confirm the Subscribe button has been added to your profile.
Keeping Your Subscribe Button On Snapchat
Once you finally get a subscribe button on Snapchat, you want to make sure you can keep it. The most important thing when it comes to keeping your subscribe button is to adhere to Snapchat’s Community Guidelines. You will also lose your subscribe button if you lose your status as a Snapchat creator.
