Social media has long been a favorite for advertisers and marketers, and we’re big fans of some of the most recent advertising options available on the leading social media sites.
Facebook — Carousel ads
Facebook, the top social media platform, has seen tremendous growth since it began in 2004. More than 1.51 billion of the 1.65 billion users log in at least once a month; more than 1 billion log in each day. Carousel ads are continuing to gain traction and support as advertisers see tremendous results; the cost per conversion has dropped by 30 to 50 percent, while the cost per click has dropped between 20 and 30 percent.
Carousel ads allow businesses to upload three to five images, or even add short video clips, to increase their brand awareness on both desktop and mobile platforms.

●A before and after series of results from your product
●Create a panoramic image highlighting your company’s advantages

This category of geofilter makes Snapchat advertising accessible to businesses of all sizes, as the branded filters start at only $5.
