Quick Links What are Snapchat ads? Snapchat has been a game changer for social engagement since its inception. However, when it launched, other social advertising platforms were already so mainstream that brands were skeptical of its advertising and monetization potential. Snapchat ads are mobile ads that allow you to connect with Snapchatters by creating engaging, interactive, sharable content, beyond the normal direct ad experience. With a variety of campaign objectives, targeting, and ad types available, Snapchat advertising can be effective for all marketers, no matter their budget or advertising goals. Thanks to the self-serve Snapchat ads manager, businesses of all sizes and budgets can buy ads at affordable prices directly from Snapchat.

A couple of years ago, Snapchat ads were expensive, inaccessible for most businesses, and ridiculously priced when compared to similar alternative ad platforms. Thanks to Snap self-service Ads Manager, now businesses of all sizes and budgets are able to advertise on Snapchat. Instead of working through an auction partner like before, businesses can now buy and manage their ads through the Snapchat site or app.
Snap's chase for ad dollars will see the company trying to get you to watch something called, wait for it, "Commercials. The six-second unskippable ads will be tested on the TV-like Snapchat Shows, and not on personal stories or Discover editions, reports Digiday. Once reluctant to impose ads on users, Snapchat is set to trial "Commercials" in its latest attempt to be more attractive to advertisers. The test is slated to begin mid-May, and will allow the company to see how many ads users can endure on the platform. The thinking is that Snapchat users will already be used to watching ads to get free content.
