Snapchat is one of the most popular mobile messaging applications used to share photos, text, videos, and drawings. Snapchat is great as it is both a messaging platform and an excellent social network. It cannot be used from the standard web and only exists as a mobile application that you can download to your Android smartphone or iPhone.

Anyone who has used Snapchat certainly knows one thing: Snapchat has amazingly diverse and incredible features that you will not find on any other platform. It has several incredible features, like augmented reality, engaging and fun filters, face swap, and a lot more. Advertisers capitalize on all of these features to bring in more sales or increase brand awareness.

Domo is an excellent business intelligence tool and provides you with the widest data set as well as connector support. Domo delivers a unique and fantastic set of social collaboration features too. Domo is a powerful and reliable cloud-based platform which connects to over 500 data sources and provides you with more than 300 valuable interactive charts and dashboards along with native apps for mobile platforms. The BI tool was created in order to help businesses find viable and effective solutions to some of the most pervasive and complex business challenges.

Extracting data

Before loading your data into Domo, you will have to prep it first. If you don't already have a data structure in which to store the data you retrieve, you'll have to create a schema for your data tables. Then, for each value in the response, you'll need to identify a predefined datatype (INTEGER, DATETIME, etc.) and build a table that can receive them.

Twitter's documentation should tell you what fields are provided by each endpoint, along with their corresponding datatypes. Complicating things is the fact that the records retrieved from the source may not always be "flat" – some of the objects may actually be lists. In these cases you'll likely have to create additional tables to capture the unpredictable cardinality in each record.

Preparing data

The great thing about Snapchat is that it provides an API called Snapchat Marketing API. You can retrieve data programmatically through this API. It is available to all users who use the platform. By leveraging Improvado, you can easily and quickly integrate, connect, and see all your Snapchat data flow into Domo.

Loading data

You can leverage the power of Domo’s data pipeline with the incredible flexibility of the DataSet API import capability. Domo is a great platform that allows you to quickly and easily store, aggregate, transform, and query data. Hence, with Domo, your data can easily provide power rich and insightful visualizations.

You must first have your DataSet created in order to import data. To load your data in CSV format, keep in mind that the Domo specification used to represent data grids in the CSV format often closely follows the popular RFC standard for CSV (known as RFC-4180).

Domo extends the RFC in the following two ways:

  • Optionally using line feeds without a carriage return as the row separator
  • Support of various unicode characters

Also, note that all data uploaded in this specific format has to comply fully with a schema that’s supplied separately from the upload. The CSV, for example, has to comply with the field types and the correct number of columns. When creating your new DataSet through the API, store your DataSet's dataset ID, or you can simply retrieve the preferred dataset ID via the DataSet API. With your dataset ID, it is vital to choose an appropriate update method when you are importing data through the API.

You have two choices. You can either APPEND or REPLACE the data which currently exists in your DataSet. Note that if you choose APPEND, it will incrementally create new data rows to your dataset as they’re imported via the API. On the other hand, REPLACE will remove your existing data and then refresh your DataSet with all of the data from your last import through the API.

Once you have chosen the kind of update Method for the data that you plan to import, you will have to use your dataset ID to make the request. Domo will then return a response of either success or failure for the outcome of data being loaded into DataSet.

Domo is an amazing tool as it eliminates the guesswork from your advertising campaigns. It provides you with crucial insights into all your ad campaigns. You can create a customized and helpful dashboard with the most important and relevant KPIs, schedule a number of automatic reports, or even set up alerts for certain metrics.

Keeping data up to date

The key is building your script so that it can sense incremental updates made to the data. Thankfully, Snapchat’s Marketing API results include fields so that you can identify those records which are new since the last update you made (or since the most recent record you have copied). Once you have taken new data into consideration, you can easily set your script either as a continuous loop or cron job to pull down new data as soon as it appears.

The Easiest And Fastest Way To Do It

If all this sounds a bit overwhelming, don't worry -- there is an easier way to get this done!

Thankfully, products like Improvado were developed to move data from Snapchat to Domo automatically. Using Improvado, you can easily combine the most crucial and relevant data from your ad campaign into a dashboard. You can then connect this data to Domo.
