Kim Kardashian might rule Instagram, but her little sis is ruling a different platform. Kylie Jenner's Snapchat (@KylizzleMyNizzl) is the #1 most viewed account, and we know what you're probably thinking. "How come Kylie can Snapchat her lips and get millions of views, but I have NONE?" The answer? It's all about branding yourself — and if anyone knows how to sell themselves, down to what lipstick and wig they wear, it's King Kylie herself.
But first, let's look at some numbers, shall we?
Snapchatting videos of your lunch hasn't been working well for you, has it? Face it, if you want to achieve Snapchat success, you're going to have to think (and act) like a Jenner, the undisputed champion of Snapchat stories. Here's a rundown of all the things you need to do to usurp Kylie from her Snapchat throne.

Think of all the times you've walked past a mirror today. Every time you don't whip out your phone immediately is a wasted opportunity. Sure it might feel silly at first, but just think of the amount of views you'll get!
Kylie loves flaunting her relationship with Tyga, and you can do the same. Just grab your current partner (or casual fling) and make a Snapchat story that's as uncomfortable as walking in on your parents. If your followers start to feel like third wheels, then it's a success.
If you're looking to attract more male followers, it's a good idea to let them know you're that oh-so-rare type of woman who's part Martha Stewart and part pole dancer. You can bake cookies and also show off the real cookies. [Wink.]
Kylie has enough dogs to start her own Puppy Bowl. But until you're a millionaire with a mansion large enough to house so many animals, you should probably just keep your adoption numbers at a modest eight or nine.
Kylie spends a lot of time on Snapchat promoting her businesses, and you can do the same thing, too. It's easy. Simply take something you already use and write your name on it.
Humility won't get you anywhere. If you have any recent accomplishments you're proud of, print them out and cover your house with them. A big framed photo of yourself? Totally not weird.
Sure you're proud of your squad, but never let your friends overshadow you. Remember, you're Beyoncé, not Kelly Rowland.
New shoes, new purses, new jewelry — anything. Snapchat it. You'll start to gain haters, but they'll only make you more famous.
After bombarding your followers with jewelry, cars, parties, and perfect selfies, it's a good idea to remind them that you're not too perfect. And by that, we mean shots that show how great you look with no makeup on and pics of you holding food but not actually eating it. Your followers will feel like they know you!
Diversifying your Snapchat stories is not a good idea. Stick to a success method that works — selfies all day, every day.
Hopefully if you follow these steps, you'll have a Snapchat as shockingly and impressively important as Kylie's. However, since you're not a Kardashian, don't be upset if these methods don't immediately bring instant success. Hmm, maybe try lip fillers?
