Playing Around with the New Snap Spectacles

These are the new #Snap second-generation #Spectacles. I can’t wait to test out the HD video and photos during my next beach run (you are following me at running.lawyer right?)

I just shared a short video over at my LegalMinds Mastermind.

While I’m not sure if my jurors, judge, and opposing counsel, are ready right now to let me share my inside the courtroom trial experiences with you on Snap, please rest assured that when they are, it’s “game on” 😉

Last Night I Cleaned My Snapchat House and It Felt Good

snapchat-mitch-jackson

Once or twice a year I pull everything out of my garage, aka my “man cave,” and then clean things up, give stuff away, and toss out everything else I no longer need.

Same thing with my law firm office. Every December we shred old files, get rid of old books and furniture and cherry everything out, so it looks like new. Sometimes we slap up fresh paint and lay down new carpet.

It feels good to get rid of all the old stuff that we never use and add a bit of spit and polish to everything else. In addition to making everything look good, an annual cleaning of the “man cave” and office also helps me stay organized.

Last night I did the same thing on Snapchat. I got tired of trying to stay on top of hundreds of incoming snaps and stories from people who I don’t know or just don’t follow any more. During Thursday Night Football, I fired up the iPhone and deleted several hundred people from my Snapchat account.

I’m not going to lie. It felt good.

This morning, my Snapchat account is lean, clean, and an organized machine. Everyone who I want to follow is right there waiting for me to click, watch and engage. Easy peasy. I should have done this a long time ago.

Because this was such a liberating experience, I’m thinking about doing the same thing to my Facebook account over the weekend. How about you?

Snapchat for Business? My Blab with Carlos Gill and Saba Sedighi

Snapchat for Business

Thursday evening I was a guest on the Social 545 Show. Hosts Saba Sedighi and Carlos Gill peppered me with outstanding questions about how we can all use Snapchat for business. What I thought was really powerful about last night’s Blab was the “roundtable” aspect of our discussion resulting in all of us sharing approaches and ideas about how and why we’re each using #Snapchat in business. If you’re already using Snapchat or interested in getting started, you’re going to enjoy the show!

We also chatted about the topic of success in business and frankly, discussed some things many entrepreneurs don’t like to talk about when it comes to hard work and success. If you want to avoid making the same mistakes, take a look and make the suggested changes.

Why I Like Snapchat?

Mitch Jackson on SnapchatMy answer is easy. It’s an outstanding platform that allows all of us to easily and quickly share our stories.

As with most of the social platforms, I look at Snapchat as another digital welcome mat to my law firm, services and even my life. And apparently I’m not alone. Check out these recent Snapchat statistics and then join me on the platform (I’m CA_Lawyer).

Snapchat:

  • 100 million daily users;
  • 400 million Snapchats per day;
  • 6 billion daily video views;
  • 1 billion Snapchat Stories viewed each day;
  • Used by 18% of all social media users with 30% of U.S. Millennials accessing the platform regularly;
  • 8,796 photos shared each second;
  • 77% of all college students use Snapchat daily;
  • When it comes to selfies: 50% of all male college students and 77% of all female use the platform.
  • All of these people, and their friends are my potential clients.

That’s why I use Snapchat.
