An image & video sharing app, Snapchat has successfully established itself as one of the most popular social media platforms in the last few years. The network caters to more than 406 million active users daily and has become a bankable option for advertisers to engage and convert their target demographic. In order to capitalize on such a huge user base, Snapchat also introduced itself to potential advertisers with its advertising technology, Snapchat advertisements, which allows businesses to reach audiences worldwide. Amazingly in 2022, the overall conversion rate for Snapchat advertisements was around a record 7%, growing at an 11.8% rate annually. 

In 2014, Snapchat debuted its own advertising platform called Snapchat Ads. This application immediately established itself as a dependable option for mobile advertisers owing to its engaging features. With further advancements, in 2017, Snapchat ads launched its own self-serve functionality that eliminated dependency on third-party service partners to manage the entire ad running process on Snapchat. 

In Jeremy Siegel's words, who is the global director of partnerships and emerging experiences, 

“This initiative isn’t just about catering to advertiser gripes; self-serve advertising solutions equal big dollars, Managed services require resource and takes time. Self-serve scales up quickly and allows anyone to start advertising.”

Benefits of Snapchat Ads

Apart from its multiple engaging features, the platform also offers:

  • Good Reach & Optimization: With a single image or video ad, companies may connect with Snapchat users, particularly GenZ. Once their ads start generating engagement, advertisers may also increase the scale of their campaigns using Snapchat's optimization tools.
  • Multiple Ad Formats: The variety of the ads not only makes them effective, but they also motivate people to take action. Single image/video, filter, augmented reality, filter, story commercial, and dynamic advertisements are some of the formats available. Video ads, in particular, have statistically proven to be more successful in engaging audiences and boosting conversion rates. Integrating a video maker tool in any advertising campaign can be invaluable for creating compelling visuals that attract your target audience through your ads.
  • Audience Targeting: Snapchat ads enable you to reach out to your audiences based on their interests, behaviors, demographics, etc. These advanced targeting capabilities can further be extended with third-party custom audiences and lookalike audiences that can be targeted for further increasing brand awareness.
  • Real-time Reporting: Tracking advertisements performance is made easier with dashboarding capabilities. The dashboards can be used to manage campaign performance against set objectives and goals. With Snap Pixel, you can track online conversion events across various devices, and the Conversion API interface also lets you feed these events—both online and offline—directly to Snapchat for better targeting and optimization.
