What is
Snapchat Ads?

Snapchat basically offers full funnel campaign objectives, from awareness to catalog sales. The app offers unique advertising formats like AR lenses, with which users can enhance their face through facial recognition, and filters. Furthermore, there are the more standard advertising formats like stories and collection ads. 

New audiences on Snapchat can be reached through demographic targeting or by targeting certain predefined lifestyles, such as “Dance & Electronic Music Fans”. When using the Snapchat pixel, you can also create custom audiences like website visitors and use these for retargeting or to create lookalikes. Also notable is the possibility to purchase filters and lenses on a geographical basis. This can be interesting if, for instance, you want to make a custom filter for your festival available to everyone on the festival terrain.


Why would you
advertise on
Snapchat Ads?

As mentioned, Snapchat offers a number of unique ad formats with which you can make your brand stand out, such as filters and lenses. One of the great advantages of this is that the shareability is big. For instance, if you buy a filter for a festival terrain and it’s used by 40 people who each have a reach of 100 people, your total reach could be 4000. This way you also reach your actual audience’s network for free. 

By far the biggest advantage of Snapchat is that along with TikTok it’s the platform par excellence for reaching teenagers and young adults up to 24 years old. Not only do they use Snapchat for sending photos and videos, but also as a messaging app, leading to high daily use.

Can Hide and Seek help me create ad content?

At Hide and Seek we want to be the best at the services we offer. That’s why we specialize in ad buying. Currently we do not specialize in or offer content creation, although through our years of online advertising we have of course picked up a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t and can give feedback on ads where necessary. For certain types of campaigns having a few photos or product images is enough to make ads. Other times, if you want to advertise on YouTube or TikTok for instance, or create a really impactful awareness campaign, you might need some video-editing or graphic design done. If you do not have anyone in-house who knows their way around content creation, we advise you to outsource it to a freelancer or creative agency. For a full overview of our services, check out our services page.

Can Hide and Seek manage my social media for me?
