Using Snapchat Spectacles to Create Immersive, First-Person Content

Hands-Free: The Way to Be! | taught by Chris Strub

Course description

Whether you jumped on board with Spectacles from the early Snapbot days, or you're a brand new user, the newest changes to Spectacles are making it much easier to incorporate Specs content into your daily social media strategies.

Specs are particularly valuable if your brand/business has a lot of hands-on experiences – cooking food, playing sports, or anything with any sort of movement. Take advantage of your Spectacles to give us an immersive, first-person view of what makes your business so special.

Most importantly, this course will help you embrace the idea that your Spectacles will allow you to differentiate your brand and your content from your competitors. When you wear your Spectacles, as I do on stage around the United States, you'll immediately stand out from the crowd!

This course will walk you through exactly how to use your Spectacles to create content that is both effective and very time-efficient.
