🚀 8 Snapchat Ad Tips To Skyrocket Your Conversions

Snapchat, with its ever-expanding targeting features, is becoming even more alluring to affiliate marketers.

However, the platform works quite differently in comparison with its competitors – people on Snapchat typically interact in a quick, frenzied manner.

Therefore eliminating wasted time, space and messaging is crucial. 

Here are some tips to do just that.

1. Keep Your Video Short
 – Under 10 seconds is ideal, go even shorter than that if you can.

2. Understand the Audience – 76% of users are ages 25 or younger, 70% of users are female. Health, Beauty, Sweepstakes, and Fitness mix well with the audience.

3. Don’t Underestimate Quality – Make sure your videos ads don’t look amateur, keep the professional and you’ll net higher conversion rates.

4. Select the Right Campaign Objective – Stick to “Drive Traffic to Website”, “Website Conversions”

5. Now is the time for Direct Linking – A major benefit of Snapchat is the fact that you can direct link – campaign approvals go through, unlike Facebook.

6. Experiment with a Native Approach 
– Make your ads blend in, use less-obstructive ads. “Using imagery or video content someone could have taken from their phone. ie. a selfie of someone’s face when promoting skin products. Overlaying simple text that users apply.“ This will net higher conversion rates and increased engagement.

7. Be Aware of the Pre-Load Feature – The pre-loading feature (while useful) can result in inaccurate stat tracking, be careful. 

8. Make Your Point Immediately – State your call to actions immediately, don’t wait until the end of the video.

  • Copywrite: Use emotion to bring your ads to the next level. Test angles that are about the deeper reason behind your offer or product. Taking example a financial offer, don’t just write about the money you can save but instead about what you can do with that extra money.
  • Use predefined whitelists: Always test new campaigns on predefined whitelists before scaling. Pushground makes this easy by providing predefined “to start” whitelist and a “to scale” whitelist of their best performing placements by vertical.
  • High Bid Low Budget: Because of the competitiveness of the native market, you may not get the most valuable impressions if you start with too low of a bid. Always test new campaigns with above-average CPMs.

FEATURED STM THREAD: Google “Privacy Sandbox” Project = The Death Of AM?

We didn’t hear about “affiliate marketing dying” for a while, so here we go again… for the 145345th time during the past decade 🙂 This time, the Google privacy initiatives are supposed to kill it. Will it happen or is it just another obstacle that we (affiliates) need to find a workaround for?

Something is happening though… the pressure from privacy advocates is real. All the Facebook scandals, all kinds of user tracking, fingerprinting, insane retargeting activities that literally chase the potential buyers around the internet etc… it got a bit out of hand, let’s admit it.

As a result, 2023 is the year when 3rd party cookies should become extinct, at least when it comes to Google Chrome, as they will stop supporting them. Which is quite a bit problem, since most affiliate tracking solutions rely on them. And we all know that Chrome is the most used browser.

But it doesn’t stop there. The “Google Privacy Sandbox” project comes with a mission:

“The Privacy Sandbox project’s mission is to “Create a thriving web ecosystem that is respectful of users and private by default.”

So how do we track sales/leads
 once the cookies are gone and users will have the option to stay “private” by default, which will likely mean the possibility to block all kinds of tracking attempts by default?

Let’s tune into the discussion we have running over at the STM Forum! Will there be a workaround? Or is AM about to end? Maybe it’s a coordinated attack on the affiliate business? What do you think? 🙂
