This week Pinterest published its 2020 advertising guide, which includes overviews and insights on all aspects of the platform. You can download the full, 46-page guide here, and it’s definitely worth doing so, but here’s a look at some key points to note.
Pinterest starts off the guide by taking themselves away from the idea of being a “social media” app.
“People come to Pinterest to plan for what could happen, not scroll through pictures of what already did. And that future-focused mindset is exactly what makes Pinterest so valuable as an advertising platform. People on Pinterest are ready to take action.”
Then the guide goes on to explain how the people on the platform are looking for new possibilities. The guide covers a range of key stats and insights on who’s using the platform, including statistical breakdowns by region. It also provides a comprehensive note on how to reach them.
