Our partner wanted to highlight its partnership with the tennis star. It launched a branded food item, with the tennis player to increase brand awareness, action intent and recommendation intent.


Operam used Snap as part of a broader strategic media mix to generate both reach and impact for the tennis campaign. Running a combination of short- and long-form Snap ads and Snap commercials drove both quantity and quality to reach a user base that fits with Sweetgreen’s core demographic.


Because there was a 7% overlap of audience between Snap ads and Snap commercials, the commercials drove an incremental audience reach of 93%.

Snapchat FAQ

What is Snapchat Advertising?

Snapchat Ads are paid placements in the Snapchat app. These ads help you reach your target demographic, your existing customers, and people similar to your ideal client. Snap Ads:

  • Give your business access to nearly 300 million daily Snapchat users, who spend an average of 30 minutes using the app each day.
  • Leverage the Snap Pixel to track and optimize for conversions and other key events across your website.
  • Offer bidding options like target cost per acquisition (CPA) and minimum return on ad spend (ROAS) so you can reach your goals and stay on budget.

A successful Snapchat media plan features one or more of these ad formats:

  • Images + Videos: Balance cost-effective production with outcomes like increased app installs, user acquisition, and brand awareness.
  • Stories: Weave a more intricate brand story by lining up as many as 20 single image or video ads.
  • Collections: Advertise an entire product line and let Snapchatters tap, browse, and buy with virtually zero friction.
  • Commercials: Connect with your target audience via non-skippable ads up to 6 seconds long or skippable commercials up to 180 seconds long.
  • Filters: Launch unique experiences for Snapchatters near a physical store or around a time-based event.
  • Lenses: Design interactive ads that encourage your target audience to play with, try on, and immerse themselves in your branded environment.

Who should use Snapchat Ads?

Brands with target audiences that overlap with typical Snapchat users should advertise on this channel. Nearly 80% of Snapchatters are between 15 and 35 years old, making this platform essential for brands targeting millennial and Gen Z customers.
