A couple of weeks back, my buddy called me cause he was on the hunt for a new CRM. He’d already looked at all the big players, but he wasn’t convinced any of them would be a great fit for his business.
Feeling a bit overwhelmed with it all, he asked me which would I personally recommend. I told him Go High Level is the best option for this kitchen design business. I told him to pick up their free 14-day free trial, then implement a new Snap Shot so all his marketing, lead management, and reputation management would be in place from day one. And lo and behold, that’s exactly what he did.

Ready to crush it with Snapshots? Yep, thought so.
Let’s do this!
Understanding Go High Level Snapshots
Go High Level Snapshots are a powerful feature that help you achieve two super important things. They put all the digital marketing in place and they generate extra referrals, leads, and revenue while you sleep. (Which every business needs!)
Snap shots allow you to quickly copy various elements from one account to another with just a few clicks. So, for example, if I had an email marketing campaign setup for one accountant, I could quickly duplicate that to a completely different accountant (who aren’t related in any way) with just a few clicks.
All the tags, email copy, graphics, custom fields, custom values, triggers, trigger links, surveys, forms, and SMS settings EVERYTHING – are duplicated within minutes.
If you an agency this is particularly helpful when onboarding new clients or applying successful campaign settings across multiple accounts. It’s also useful for creating a set of templates or “best practices” that you can apply across any client.
Steps to 1 Click Import a Snapshot
Ready to create your first Snap shot?
1.First, navigate to the Settings section in the Agency View. (This is for an Agency btw).
This is where the Account Snapshot settings are located.
2. Upon clicking Account Snapshot, notice the option to create a new snapshot. To proceed, click on Create New Snapshot.
3. Next, you’ll need to give my snapshot a name. In the Snapshot name field, I enter a unique and descriptive name to easily recognize it later.
4. Finally, choose which account to base my snapshot on by selecting an account from the dropdown in the Account field. (It’s important to select the right account, as this is where all the data for the snapshot will come from).
5. Once I’ve filled out the necessary fields, I simply click Save.
6. The snapshot creation process will then begin, and in a short time, the snapshot will be available to use in other accounts. Boom, ready to rock.
7. It’s a good idea if you’re planning on creating/using multiple Snap Shots you come up with an easy way to categorize each Snap shot you created.
Everything You Can Copy with a Snapshot
|Custom Values||Email flows|
|SMS Templates (these are really handy)||Tags|
|Folders||Funnels (huge time saver!)|
|Membership products and offers||Workflows|
All The Things That Don’t Copy
|Conversations (for privacy reasons)||Custom value data|
|FB & Google Tracking Codes||Any customization in the chat widget|
|Integrations (Zapier etc)||Integrated domains|
|Reporting||Existing tasks or manual actions|
Setting Up the Snapshot Structure
Here are some basic ideas to help you create a GoHighLevel Snap shot structure. Sounds silly I know, but doing this will make soooo much easier.
While creating Go High Level snapshots, it’s essential to have a consistent naming convention. I like to name my snapshots in a way that reflects their purpose and the features included. For example, use the format “Snapshot-Feature1-Feature2”, such as “Snapshot-LandingPage-EmailSequences”.
This way, it’s much easier to identify the contents of the snapshot without having to open the details.
Organizing the cards within my snapshot is crucial for maintaining a clean and easy-to-navigate structure. I prefer creating separate sections for different types of assets, such as landing pages, email sequences, and automation. By grouping cards based on their functionality, I make it easier for myself and others to find the desired assets and understand the snapshot’s flow.
Using Labels and Tags
In addition to organizing cards, I find it useful to use labels and tags in my snapshots. These can help me filter and search for specific cards with ease. For example, I may label each card with the asset type (e.g., “email”, “landing page”, “automation”) and tag them with relevant categories (e.g., “lead generation”, “sales funnel”). This way, I can quickly locate the appropriate card within the snapshot. Using labels and tags effectively streamlines my workflow and enhances asset management inside snapshots.
Pros and Cons of GoHighLevel Snap shots
Adding Content to the Snapshot
With my experience using Go High Level, I’ve learned that the first step in building a successful snapshot is managing campaigns. By going to the Marketing section in the platform, I can access Email and SMS campaigns, where I’ll find a list of available templates. I can choose the templates relevant to my agency and customize them as needed, ensuring that the campaigns accurately represent my agency’s services and branding.
Next, I’ll integrate funnels into my snapshot. The Funnels section in Go High Level allows me to view existing funnels and create new ones. To make the funnel relevant to my snapshot and targeted audience, I can either choose a pre-built template or build a custom design from scratch. Using the drag-and-drop builder, I can easily add elements such as text, images, buttons, and forms to personalize the funnel and optimize it for conversions.
Last but not least, I’ll incorporate automation into my Go High Level snapshot. Automations are crucial for streamlining the marketing process, saving both time and effort. In the platform, I can find automation tools under the Triggers section, where I can create, edit, and manage trigger-based actions. By utilizing these automation features, I can create a snapshot that runs on autopilot, providing my agency with a smooth and efficient marketing workflow.
Sharing and Collaborating on Client Snapshots
Granting Snapshot Access
Sharing Snapshots in Go High Level dead simple! Here how it works:
First, navigate to the desired Snapshot and click the Share button on the right-hand side. Then, select the Get share link option, which generates a shareable URL link that you can copy and paste to send to someone for collaboration 1.
This works well if you’re helping clients in one vertical (coffee shops for example) and you want to speed up the process of getting all their automation in place.
Best Practices for Collaboration
When working together on Snapshots in Go High Level, it’s essential to keep a few basic things in mind:
- Communicate clearly: Make sure to inform your collaborators about the Snapshot’s purpose and any specific modifications or updates needed. Clear communication helps to avoid misunderstandings and ensures a smooth collaboration process.
- Organize your work: Break down tasks into smaller, manageable steps, and assign them to the appropriate team members. This approach fosters a clear understanding of individual responsibilities and helps to track progress effectively.
- Stay up-to-date: Regularly sync with your collaborators to discuss the Snapshot’s status and any new developments or changes. Keeping everyone in the loop is crucial for efficient collaboration and helps to address potential issues proactively.
Finalizing and Implementing the Snapshot
Review and Quality Assurance
Before implementing any Go High Level Snapshot, it’s a real good idea to perform a thorough review and quality assurance. I typically double-check the snapshot name, verify the chosen account, and make sure all the necessary elements are included within the snapshot. (nothing worse than copying everything over, and then it’s all wrong 🤣)
During the review process, I focus on factors such as email templates, marketing campaigns, and CRM configurations to ensure everything is correctly set up. This also includes proper links, images, and tailored content for the target audience.
Just take your time, and get it right the first time around.

If you like the idea of a full calendar of new clients and all of your sales and marketing taken care of – High Level snapshots are the way to go.
