Can I promote a Lens Studio Lens by a users location and dates like you can with create.snapchat.com?
A client asked me to build a lens for them using Lens Studio, I have it built now but I was expecting that when it was complete I would be able to upload it to an area similar to create.snapchat.com where you can pay for the lens you create to be promoted depending on peoples location and the date
After publishing with Lens Studio all that I got was a QR code which I imagine I would have to promote myself by other means.
Is it possible to promote lenses built using Lens Studio in the same way as you can with template lenses created in create.snapchat.com or if not are there any ways to promote the lenses you create in Lens Studio outside of sharing the QR code that is created yourself?
Yes but instead of submitting as a community lens, you have to select sponsored lens. You must get it approved to appear in your ad manager. Once you do that, you should be good to go. There are plenty of threads on the forum that discuss this.
My advice: Set this all up and give yourself weeks in advance before it is scheduled to be deployed. It can be a lengthy process.
