This partnership is an important step for Httpool in Europe. Adding Snapchat Ads to Httpool product mix will further strengthen its ability to support brands, agencies and advertisers with the best solutions and help them make the most of their digital campaigns.
Httpool will be offering several engaging formats to advertisers across the 15 European markets including:
Snap ads are single image or video full screen ads that offer sight, sound and motion in a format made especially for mobile: full-screen,100% viewable with sound on by default. Snap Ads with a video, GIF, or still image, also have the option to offer an interactive element – an app install page, long-form video or trailer, or pre-loaded website.
Lenses let Snapchatters apply real-time effects and sounds to their selfies and the world around them- so brands can take part in the communication on Snapchat in the most fun way. Lenses are a powerful and memorable way to connect with consumers using augmented reality.
Filters are artistic overlays that appear when a user takes a Snap in a specific location and swipe left or right. They allow brands to be where their product is bought, thought about, or consumed – driving awareness, advocacy and action.
Story Ads offer brands the ability to enable viewers to swipe up to view products, sites or videos while viewing long-form content.
Commercials are non-skippable six-second ads, which can be up to three minutes long, which appear in Snap’s professionally curated content
