Marketers Are Getting the Snapchat Targeting Data They Want. Will That Scare Off Users?

The popular messaging app plans to attract deep-pocketed marketers and investors with the introduction of in-app behavioral targeting in the fourth quarter timed to a rumored IPO. To improve ad targeting, the popular messaging app last week announced Snap Audience Match, which lets brands take their email lists and files of mobile device IDs, and then anonymously sync the data with Snapchat's user pool.

Snapchat Is Letting More Brands Run Ads Between Friends' Stories. When Snapchat unleashed its ad-tech program Snap Partners in June with plans to serve video ads between stories, observers wondered how users would respond to seeing ads alongside their friends' videos and photos.

Snapchat Is Letting More Brands Run Ads Between Friends' Stories

Two months in, Snapchat is already expanding its initial pilot to include more advertisers eager to reach the app's 150 million daily users. The ads appear between strings of photos and videos that users have share with their followers. Snapchat caps the amount of ads so that each person is served three so-called Snap Ads Between Friends promos per day—one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one at night.

Over the past few weeks, the number of ads has steadily increased. Based on Adweek's own testing, each Snapchat user views the same number of daily ads, regardless of how much content they consume.

Droga5, for one, says that up to 95 percent of its ads are viewed without audio, so like other agencies, it's experimenting with captions, voiceovers and plugging brands' messages into the first three seconds of clips. Still, change is always hard, particularly when it comes to changing the creative process behind long-form ads with big, overarching story arcs.

While YouTube is undoubtedly the biggest platform with a NewFronts presence—CEO Susan Wojcicki will make a case for marketers to shift hefty TV budgets to digital at tonight's Brandcast event—publishers are selling media buyers with promises to crank out lots of custom Snapchat content.
