How do you use them to your benefit?

Whether you are celebrating the launch of a new product or running a special event, these Geofilters can be created to go alongside your activations.

In a crowded social media verse, Snapchat Geofilters have the ability to provide you with some real competitive edge because not all brands are using them and most importantly, the Snapchat users are quite impressionable and love to use filters, thus your brand get organically imbibed in a lot of engaging conversations.
