Snapchat. “Everybody’s doing it,” and you think your brand needs to be there (eventually). But first, you have to sell it to your boss (or team). Luckily for you, we’ve done all the leg work. You’re welcome.
Since Snapchat started gaining popularity, brands have been attempting to find their place in the app. Once the best place for sending selfies to friends, the platform has become a preferred destination for in-the-moment, playful self-expression and daily news.
