Choosing the Best Data Studio connector for Snapchat Ads
Lucky for Snapchat advertisers, the advertising API comes complete with all the data you need to monitor overall account performance, campaign and ad squad performance, demographic performance and more.
- Data Points: Campaigns, ad squads, impressions, clicks, swipes, spend, video views, age, gender, geo, and about 100 metrics and dimensions.
- Roll-Up Snapchat Reporting: Do you have one Snapchat ad account or many to report on? Some connectors will just allow for 1 connection while others will make it easy to roll-up data and filter by account as needed.
- Direct Connection vs Data Warehousing: With some connectors, you connect directly to the Snapchat APIs in real time. This means that you’ll pull data from Snapchat Ads each time your report loads. However, it’s sometimes good to warehouse the data (as Power My Analytics does) so that you can trend data faster.
For Snapchat, we like Supermetrics and Power My Analytics hands-down. It’s fast, data is all there, and we can produce an extremely useful view of our clients’ Snapchat efforts.
- Supermetrics (free/paid depending on your needs)
- Power My Analytics (free trial)
