Hyperlink InfoSystem can help you develop an app similar to Snapchat. Depending on the functionalities, the cost of such app ranges from $5,000 to $15,000.

Snapchat As an Advertising Platform

Since Snapchat added its Snapchat for Business service, it has enabled thousands of brands to reach their audience, who are mostly millennials. In addition, it has generated thousands of brands to increase the number of engagements, and captivate their audience with the exclusive and personalized content that can be published in this app.

Therefore, Snapchat is an excellent tool for Digital Marketing strategy, and these are some reasons for a brand to be present on Snapchat or develop an app that is similar to Snapchat:

Publish Exclusive Content

The advantage of Snapchat is that it allows your posts to disappear in 24 hours, which allows brands to show "insider" information about new products or services, or to create expectations of them.

Personalized Content

Snapchat allows you to post videos and photos that can be edited with its different filters, stickers, lenses. In addition, it allows to publish the routine of the workers of a company, which allows to humanize the brand.

Make Your Brand Known

This app has 100 million users around the world, and most of them are millennials, so betting on being on Snapchat allows brands to be known by many people every day.

Reach a New Audience

It is easier to reach new audiences on Snapchat because the users of this app are more active than on other social networks such as Facebook or Instagram. This is an important favor for brands as it allows them to generate more engagement.

Predefined Audiences

Brands will be able to choose from more than 300 audiences according to the likes or preferences of Snapchatters; what they buy, what they see, their behavior within the network, and places they have visited thanks to the option of their Geofilters.


At this point, brands need to be specific with their audience selection. To do this, you can select the age range, location, device type, demographics, household income, and parental status of your users.
