Snap Introduces Snap Connect for DR advertisers
Posted on 2020 Nov,08

Snap Inc. is now expanding the opportunities for advertisers with the introduction of Snap Connect, advanced courses on Direct Response (DR) advertising on Snapchat, that lives within the larger Snap Focus platform.

Snap Connect is an expansion to the Snap Focus program that enables advertisers to dive deeper into education and strategies for DR advertising goals, formats, and opportunities on Snapchat.

Snap has invested heavily in DR solutions over the past several years, introducing new formats like Dynamic Ads and new technology like shoppable Augmented Reality Lenses.

Dominic Rioux, VP of Sales, Emerging, Snap Inc. said: “Snap Connect is a way for us to ensure our advertising partners have everything they need to find success on our platform. As DR becomes a bigger part of every business’ advertising and marketing plans, Snap Connect will help them more easily and efficiently drive meaningful ROI on Snapchat.”

As the Snap Focus platform continues to grow, Snap Connect programming will look to expand for additional advertising verticals, as the company says "always with an aim of helping our DR partners drive success and ROI." For example, later this year Snap Connect will be publishing a report on shopping trends and the new normal to help advertisers kick off their 2021 campaigns on the right foot.

Sam Bevan, International Head of Emerging, Snap Inc. said: ““Snap Connect is all about showing our advertisers that we care about their success. We’re providing advertisers from all around the world direct access to our experts and leadership team, who bring them inside the world of Snapchat’s direct response solutions.”
