Snapchat has redesigned the tool it launched late last summer with which users can design their own On-Demand Geofilters.
In August, Snapchat gave its users a little gift, in the form of a web tool that makes the process of creating On-Demand Geofilters a lot easier. Up until then, users could use programs like Photoshop or Illustrator to create their own Geofilters, but the web tool really sped things up, adding customisable templates and many other useful features.
Now, Snapchat has launched a revamped version of the tool that contains more settings – more notably a set of new preset categories like business, food, bars, love, marriage, weddings, birthdays, and more. With the new tool, users also get new templates to change colours and graphics, change their text, and even use Bitmoji.
As was the case with the tool Snapchat launched in August, pricing for On-Demand Geofilters still depends on how long users want them to be available for. It also depends on the chosen geofencing options, with 20,000 sq. ft being the minimum. As Snapchat explained at the time,
[quote]You can see the price adjust as you manipulate the size, location, and run time for the Geofilter in the purchase tool. We may also offer an option that lets you more generally select a location and time to run a Geofilter, leaving it to us to define the Geofence, duration, and price.[/quote]
If you want to purchase an On-Demand Geofilter that will last for over 90 days, there is also an option to purchase an Annual Geofilter. If you want to create your own On-demand Geofilter right now, here are the steps to do it:
