Unblocking Snapchat Connections to Grow Your Business

As an entrepreneur in the digital age, your Snapchat network can make or break your business. Handling connections tactfully is key – you need visibility and partnerships without compromising ethics. If you’ve blocked a contact, unblocking strategically may offer opportunities worth exploring. This comprehensive guide examines when and how to re-open ties.

Evaluating Business Relationships on Snapchat

With over 90 million daily active Snapchatters, the platform provides invaluable visibility:

  • 71% of users are under 34, reaching a key demographic
  • There are over 5 billion Snaps created every day
  • An influencer Snap can reach over 5,000 views

However, you must balance potential reach with your values. Ask yourself:

  • Were they blocked for harassment/hate speech issues?
  • Do they represent an unsavory brand?
  • Is the benefit of their following worth risks?

Carefully evaluate contexts before reconnecting.

When Unblocking Makes Strategic Sense

Reasons to consider unblocking certain contacts:

  • They drive conversations in your niche
  • They have apologized for misunderstandings
  • Partnerships may boost your brand significantly
Benefit Risk
Increased brand awareness from cross-promotion Unethical branding practices reflected on you
Potential loyal followers from influencer endorsements Harassment or dangerous speech
Networking opportunities Violations of your ethics/values

Weigh advantages against drawbacks depending on situations.

How to Unblock Connections on Snapchat

If an unblocking aligns with your entrepreneurial strategy, here is the simple process:

  1. Open your Profile and select the Settings gear
  2. Choose “Account Actions” then select “Blocked”
  3. Tap the “X” icon next to a blocked contact
  4. Confirm by selecting “Unblock”

They’ll regain access to view and contact you. Note they won’t receive alerts about the unblock.

Reconnecting Tactfully

Don’t expect ex-contacts to know they’re unblocked. Send a personalized message explaining why you blocked, apologizing if warranted, and suggesting a fresh start.

Sample message: “Hi [Name]! I wanted to let you know I recently unblocked you on Snapchat. I’m hoping we can reconnect in a positive way going forward – would love to hear your thoughts on collaborating. Please let me know if you’d be open to chatting."

I hope this perspective gives clarity on managing Snapchat networks as an entrepreneur. Let’s discuss optimizing connections while upholding ethics!
