WHAT’S THE MEANING?

Snapchat Lenses or Snaplenses are special effects that you can add to your photos and videos before taking a snap. It can change the appearance of your face and voice. The most common lenses are the dog/puppy face lens, face swap, voice changer, and flower crown. Snapchat’s sponsored lenses are lenses that let a company put their brand alongside people’s selfies.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the cost for sponsored lenses in Snapchat varies depending on the day of the week and occasion? It’s hard to come up with an online ad format that people actively engage with, but Snapchat did it. On most platforms, people hate ads. Snapchatters, meanwhile, tend to play with Sponsored Lenses for an average of 20 seconds. Probably the reason why advertisers love Snapchat’s pricey ads on the platform. Snapchat Sponsored Lenses costs $450,000 per day from Sunday to Thursday, $500,000 for Fridays and Saturdays, and more than $700,000 for holidays or special events. The first sponsored lens was bought by Fox Studios in October 2015 to promote “The Peanuts Movie.” It was offered during Halloween. Snapchat users who took a video selfie were allowed to use images of characters from the movie while its theme music is being played. When users opened their mouths, an endless stream of candy corn comes out. Snaplenses work so well for brands because they are fun.
