Now that you’ve seen some interesting statistics, let’s dive right into the tips and tricks!
7 Snapchat Marketing Strategies to Increase Your Conversion Rate
What can you do as an advertiser to take advantage of Snapchat ads?
1. Create Shorter Ads
Interest and attention span are growing shorter nowadays. Your ad must create an impact within seconds! Stories, snaps, and TikTok clips are all influencing the creation of brief advertisements. A study by MAGNA Global states that response rates to 6-second videos are increasing. Audiences remembered 6-second and 15-second ads and found the longer ads more complicated to recall. Creating shorter ads will make your ads memorable to users, increasing your conversion rate.
2. Add Audio to Your Snapchat Ads
While users on other social media apps sometimes watch videos on silent, Snapchat users prefer to watch videos with their sound on. In fact, 60% of Snapchat ads are watched with the audio on. This feature is considered an essential part of the Snapchat experience. A great way to implement the sound on feature for your Snapchat ads is including a customer testimonial. This helps improve your credibility and shows Snapchat users how your product can add value for them.
3. Use Intriguing Copy
The purpose of ad copy is to compel users to take interest in the brand and purchase from them. Besides the image and videos used in your ads, copywriting is a key factor in sparking the interest of customers. Consider using these tips to create a compelling ad copy:
4. Shoppable AR Lens Feature
Since the beginning of the pandemic, augmented reality (AR) has become a massive trend for connecting with customers. In fact, Deloitte states that 94% of customers are expected to use AR significantly more in 2022 than in 2021. Snapchat is well-known for using AR lenses to interact with its users. This seamless user experience allows users to try on products in the comfort of their own homes! For example, MAC Cosmetics used Snapchat’s AR lenses feature to let users choose from four lenses and try 20 shades of lip and eye products.
The Shoppable AR Lenses feature has three categories:

Have you ever come across videos of people discussing a new pair of sneakers, or a review on a recent makeup purchase? These are all examples of UGC! UGC is content such as videos, images, or audio that customers publish on social network sites, featuring your brand’s products. This plays a significant role in boosting your conversion rate. Don’t believe it? Here’s some data that proves this:
