Snapchat is a unique place during the holidays. Not only do Snapchatters spend significant time communicating and sharing special moments with their friends and loved ones around the world, but they also turn to Snapchat as a holiday gift guide to browse brands, create wish lists, and buy the perfect gifts over and over again.
The Snapchat generation are passionate gift givers and recipients. They consider this to be the best time of the year and believe that gifts are an essential part of the celebration, which is why their purchase is not limited to big shopping moments, such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Snapchatters start buying as early as October1, and continue to shop during the holiday season – with most shopping taking place via mobile devices.
Mobile shopping has become more than a trend, but a new reality. In fact, 67% of total e-commerce sales this year will come from mobile phones2. Since consumers are officially jumping from a desktop computer to a mobile phone to make a purchase, as a brand you will want to connect with the smartest consumers of mobile devices this holiday season. Snapchatters are the first generation of mobile devices that buy 20% more online than other consumers3 and have incredible global consumer power – $ 4.4 trillion and growing.4
