Single Image or Video Ads
Single Image or Video Ads are full-screen ads that appear in-between Stories. They encourage Snapchatters to take action on your website, contact your business, or download and engage with your app.
Collection Ads appear in Stories, and showcase a series of products, giving Snapchatters a tappable way to browse.
Story Ads are a series of 3-20 Snaps that live alongside popular content tailored to Snapchatter’s preferences in the Discover section.
AR Lenses allow advertisers to create interactive moments with augmented reality experiences that Snapchatters can play with and send to friends.
Filter Ads are creative overlays that can be applied over Snaps, allowing advertisers to take part in Snapchatters' conversations.
Commercials, found within Snapchat's Curated Content, are video ads that are non-skippable for six seconds and can drive brand awareness.
