While marketing strategists have found many successful ways to promote their brands on Facebook and Instagram, there is a powerful app that often gets overlooked: Snapchat. This app has over 26 million active U.S. users with a core audience between ages 13 and 25, but the only way to interact with a user is if they add you.

Some of the use cases that have been working for brands on Snapchat are announcements, new product sneak peaks, coupons, behind the scenes, targeted videos, and new team member introductions. If you’re seeking to reach a younger audience, get ahead of the curve and add Snapchat to your social marketing campaign.
