Snapchat’s Ad Offerings Fail to Impress Advertisers Despite Brand Marketing Campaign

Advertisers are still grappling with how to approach Snapchat’s ad offerings, despite the platform’s recent ⁤brand marketing campaign.

One month after Snapchat launched its global campaign with the tagline “Less likes, more ⁤Snapchat,” marketers are ⁤uncertain ⁣about what this means for ‍their advertising strategies.

According to a Snapchat spokesperson, the intention behind the campaign is ​to showcase why Snapchat is rated as the top platform where users feel comfortable, happy, and connected. They have‍ paired this message with tailored strategies to help advertisers ​reach their extensive global audience of over 800 million⁤ people.

However, feedback from five ad execs interviewed by Digiday suggests that many have not yet received a formal⁣ pitch from Snapchat.

While some executives have been informally informed about the⁤ campaign, others are still awaiting official communication. This radio‌ silence‌ from Snapchat may be a deliberate move, but it is also a⁢ missed opportunity to engage with advertisers during​ a pivotal moment for the platform.

It is evident that advertisers are hesitant to increase their social budgets on Snapchat, highlighting a core issue for the platform. Despite positioning itself as distinct from traditional social media platforms, Snapchat still competes for the same ad dollars.

Jasmine ‌Enberg, principal analyst at eMarketer, noted ⁢that Snap’s recent earnings report showcased modest revenue growth compared to industry ⁤giants like Meta. This disparity underscores the challenge faced by Snapchat in the competitive digital advertising landscape.

Essentially, Snapchat is‍ struggling to carve out a unique space in the market. It’s reluctant to conform to the ⁢standard social ⁣media model, ⁣which ⁢poses challenges in attracting ad spend from advertisers.
