Should Your Business Be On Pinterest?

When you are making a decision regarding which social media to use for your business, two of the main factors to take into consideration are the social media users’ demographics and behaviour.

Pinterest is famous for being a favoured social media platform for women aged 34-55. There is data suggesting that 54% of American women in that age range are using Pinterest.

Another study states that 87% of Pinners have purchased a product because of Pinterest.

Promoted Video Ads

The promoted video ads were introduced in August 2016 and allow businesses to showcase their products in action. Unlike other social ad platforms, on Pinterest your video ads are accompanied with related pins that users can engage with to learn about the products you are showcasing.

67% of people say that videos on Pinterest inspire them to make a purchase, making this ad type one of the most preferred Pinterest advertising opportunities for advertisers.

Promoted Video on Pinterest is currently available for US and UK businesses working with a Pinterest account team.

Promoted App Pins

Back in February 2015 Pinterest rolled out App Pins as part of their Rich Pins efforts. They partnered with Apple to create pins that let you install iOS apps without ever leaving Pinterest.

And now they introduce the opportunity to promote your App Pins.

With over 75% of Pinterest users visiting the platform from their mobile devices, advertising your App in Pinterest could be a great new strategy.


To wrap up, Pinterest is working on ways to introduce new ad formats that will match both the interest of Pinterest advertisers and the behaviours of Pinterest users. However, advertising on Pinterest is considerably limited. Promoted pins are available only for US, UK and CA- based businesses and many of the ad formats are still available only to a small group of test advertisers.

Nevertheless, Pinterest promises to extend the availability of Promoted pins with other markets very soon.
