Snapchat opens a private marketplace for brands to buy ads in Discover shows

Snapchat has developed a private marketplace for advertisers that could help publishers on the platform sell commercials directly to brands and raise the value of the ad inventory.On Wednesday, Snapchat said advertisers are now able to book ad space in specific shows and channels created by publishing partners, including Hearst, Vice, BuzzFeed, NBC Universal, ESPN and others, through its self-serve ad platform.This is Snapchat's version of premium programmatic advertising, known in the industry as a private marketplace, and it melds the automated parts of digital ad buying with the control associated with more manual advertising services. Until now, if brands wanted ads to appear alongside specific publishers' content in Snapchat they had to go through the old-fashioned insertion order method.
