Snapchat overview

Snapchat is a social messaging and multimedia platform that helps businesses increase awareness and reach unique audiences with engaging ad formats on mobile. Users can create, manage, and measure campaigns while at work or on the go, and drive action with ad products that are interactive and fun, for every objective.

Snapchat’s ad products include Snap Ads which help captivate audiences with full-screen vertical ads (with attachments); location-based ‘filters’ for establishments or events, and interactive ‘lenses’ for customer videos. Snapchat for business includes an ‘ad manager’ which enables users to create, optimize, and manage campaigns by uploading content and media, and selecting an ad type. Users can choose an objective, set an audience and budget, and schedule and run campaigns.

The predefined audiences feature allows business users to choose from more than 300 audiences based on what Snapchatters purchase and watch, what they like, and where they go. Users can get specific with demographics by age, location, device type, and advanced demographics such as household income and parental status. The audience matching feature enables users to combine their data with Snapchat’s to build custom audiences, with drag and drop functionality for building customer lists.

Tools for Snapchat Snap Ads reporting allow users to monitor campaigns in real time and identify key performance trends for optimization. Snapchat for business tracks the amount of times a user’s ad was served, including first and third-party metrics on how much attention ads received alongside support for MRC viewability metrics.

Great Idea, and Platform!

Snapchat is the best short video app since Vine. They came out with an original and smart idea, and you can tell it was successful, because so many other companies quickly stole and modified their ideas and still do! (I'm looking at you Instagram & Facebook). They still have the best filters, interface, and the best business options for their model. Since they partnered with Bitmoji (or took it over? I'm not sure) It's grown even more and has even more value as both a consumer and as a marketer. Their business options include being able to create filters for your own events, creating a channel for your business (if you have a social channels or content to upload) which adds value to your offering as a business. Its smart, fun, and attention grabbing!

I love the fact you can take pictures and snap away as often as you want. You can use their filters, which is my favourite part and send snaps. I use these with the kids as it gets them excited and they love it. I like looking at peoples stories and this stays with the social media platform for 24hours.

Snapchat is like texting with pictures instead of text. I really enjoy how I can see into the lenses of my friends and family and what's going on with their day. It provides a multitude of features, including seeing local stories and notifications for constant communication (i.e. streaks).

SnapChat is a great platform that shows how mobile-first people need to be. The fun features to modify photos creates a lot of cool marketing opportunities. It's super easy to geo-fence off a location and get your filters running.
