Bob Wolfley from the underwear company MeUndies has some advice for companies that are looking to market on Snapchat: Drop the sales pitch and focus on a narrative. That’s the tactic that his social media team has taken. Snapchat has become MeUndies’s most effective social media platform in terms of converting advertising dollars to new customers.
