Snapchat Benchmarks for Brands

Most consumers find a brand’s Snapchat account by being directed to the username, or by searching for the username, according to recent data from Snaplytics.

The report was based on an analysis of Snaplytics 4Q16 data for more than 500 brands. The researchers examined 24,180 stories (defined as a series of snaps posted to a brand’s “My Story” less than two hours apart) and more than 217,000 individual snaps.
