Competition for the acquisition of advertisers among the social networking platforms is not an easy task at all, but it needs to provide a fertile environment that entices the advertiser to launch his campaigns on a specific platform and not others. There is no doubt that the acquisition of the largest number of diverse audiences is one of the cornerstones of an advertising platform, which is also the most important attraction for advertisers.
Hence, Snapchat launched “The Snapchat Footprints series”, that provides insights on where Snapchatters go, and the places they care about the most. As part of this series, a few days ago, Snapchat revealed on its official blog its “Retail Footprints” report, which takes a closer look at how Snapchatters shop for everyday apparel, as well as when they’re likely to make these purchases. As reported by Snapchat in its Retail Footprints:
Snapchat also focuses on places apparel shoppers’ visit before and after a visitation to apparel stores. Snapchat Retail Footprints showcases that apparel shoppers preferred to eat before shopping for new clothes, they’re likely to visit burger joints, delis, or grocery stores. But, after they had ended their apparel purchases they’re running errands like visiting banks, car repair shops, florists, or hair salons, in addition to visiting candy stores or chocolate shops after buying their clothes.
In the same report, Snapchat also mentions that apparel shoppers have varying interests and affinities compared to the average Snapchatter. It confirmed, “apparel shoppers are more likely to be coffee lovers or into arts and culture.” As explained by Snapchat:
“As an apparel brand or retailer, it’s important to understand the preferences and behavioral patterns of your consumers. We’re here to help.
