Samsung Netherlands Drives Purchase Intent for Galaxy S21 using Video Ads and Director’s View Lens
Samsung Netherlands partnered with Snapchat, Publicis, and Blauw Gras to generate awareness and engagement for the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphone. Adding fun and interaction to the AR experience on Snapchat, Samsung’s Director’s View Lens was designed to showcase the power of Galaxy S21’s vlogger mode, allowing Snapchatters to film using the front and back camera in one Snap.
Samsung launched multiple video creatives to reach their target audience in the Netherlands. Video ads featured clear product shots alongside Samsung branding, as well as engaging visuals and messaging.
With the AR Lens running via auction in the carousel, Snapchatters were invited to record a Snap using the front cam and turn to the rear cam to experience Director’s View in action.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 campaign drove excellent results, as measured using the Kantar Millward Brown Brand Lift study in the Netherlands.
Samsung’s highly engaging multi-format campaign generated lifts in Ad Awareness (+20 pt) and Purchase Intent (+3 pt).1 The Director’s View Lens generated an impressive avg. play time of 33 seconds.2
Snapchatters who expected to buy a smartphone in the short-term (within the next 1-3 months) were highly motivated after campaign exposure to buy a Samsung Galaxy S21, showing a lift in Purchase Intent of +14 pt.3
