The announcement marks Pinterest’s latest expansion through Latin America, which began with the launch of Pinterest ads in Brazil last month. Pinterest says that it currently serves more than 23 million monthly active Mexican users. 

Pinterest’s Managing Director for Latin America André Loureiro shared this statement:

“Brands play a fundamental role in the platform, making it easier for users to find the inspiration to create the life they love, and we are very excited that now they can do so through ads in Mexico” 

Pinterest has seen significant expansion in international markets of late, with the platform’s active audience outside the US growing by 37% year-over-year throughout 2020, in contrast to 9% growth of its North American audience.

In Mexico specifically, Pinterest still has a way to go to gain significant market traction, coming in at seventh on the top social media apps listing. But it is seeing increased engagement, particularly in regards to search activity. According to Pinterest, on-platform searches by Mexican users rose by 93% year-over-year throughout 2020.

That could open up a range of new marketing opportunities, while the broader expansion of its ad offerings will also help Pinterest boost its business and revenue programs, and maximize its earnings potential. 

As noted, the announcement marks the next stage of Pinterest’s Latin American expansion, with Argentina, Colombia and Chile next in line to get access to promoted Pins. Pinterest has seen particularly strong growth in the latter two regions, and its expanded ad offerings will also open up new options for brands looking to reach these markets.

Pinterest is projecting significant growth in earnings in 2021, though it has warned of slowing usage increases as we move beyond the pandemic mitigation efforts.

Now, as more people around the world are vaccinated and travel begins to make its inevitable comeback, the popular social media site is once again serving as a place to organize ideas for dream trips including epic honeymoons and destination weddings in beautiful places the world over.

A recent study by Money.co.uk, a financial site based in the U.K., revealed the most commonly “pinned” wedding destinations around the world and in the U.S. that people have created Pinterest boards for.

The study also focused on current trends, with Harry Potter, vintage, earthy, natural and farm themed weddings taking the top five spots for themed weddings, as well as popular wedding dress styles and bridal bouquets.

If you’re planning a destination wedding, pay attention to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) travel guidelines—as of this writing, all international travelers need to provide negative Covid-19 test results before they’re allowed to re-enter the U.S., whether or not you’re fully vaccinated—and stay on top of local health and safety protocols regarding mask-wearing and social distancing wherever you go.

All details and policies mentioned were accurate as of press time.

Pinterest launches ‘You might just surprise yourself’ campaign

Published

on

Pinterest has partnered with creative agency, Droga5 to launch its latest campaign ‘You might just surprise yourself’, exploring how the platform can expand people’s interests in ways they never saw coming.

To kick things off, Pinterest has released a TV ad in the UK, managed by agency Media Hub. The integrated campaign will run across the US and UK including high impact out-of-home, along with audio, podcast, and provocative social ads.

Directed by Yann Demange, the campaign’s hero film ‘Discovery’ – filmed in Mexico City and Los Angeles – takes the audience on a fast-paced journey of exploration focusing on one woman’s discovery before branching out into an unbroken, energetic thread of other characters’ experiences. 

A series of 15 films take this premise further, exploring the surprising leaps and ways people can expand their interests. These include a home chef discovering the fusion of burgers and sushi and a teenager trying his hand at flame nail art.

To expand the campaign across all media channels, high-impact mural out-of-home installations have been commissioned in London, New York, Chicago, and LA, along with high-impact media placements and unique brand partnerships to reintroduce the brand and spark inspiration in new ways. 

Pinterest has formed its first ever partnership with CRWNMAG, a hair and lifestyle culture magazine for Black women and NTWRK, a mobile-first video shopping platform that seamlessly blends entertainment and commerce.

“People need a place to dream, to explore and to visualize their future. Pinterest is the open invitation to try something you’d never thought you’d try. Our campaign demonstrates that Pinterest is a place where you can find a never-ending array of surprises – a place where the more you explore, the more you discover,” said Director of Marketing for Europe at Pinterest, Louise Richardson. “We want to bring people the inspiration to create a life they love and often that means inspiring you to try something new and giving you the confidence to try more, whether you succeed and it’s beautiful or you fail and it’s hilarious.”

NEW YORK, May 28 ― A new report based on data from social network Pinterest reveals the most attractive destinations for a wedding, according to pinners. Morocco takes first place, followed by Greece and France.

Does France still have the reputation of being the country of love and romance? The answer to that appears to be yes, according to the latest report put together by credit comparison company Money.co.uk. The report compiled Pinterest data and reveals the list of the most popular destinations for users. And, while ceremonies have been postponed due to the pandemic, brides and grooms-to-be or wannabes are still planning and dreaming. Many have created boards, to pin their favorite wedding destinations. The report has tallied them by destination and made a top 20.

An ambiance of lanterns and jewel tones is popular with Morocco in top spot. Next comes Greece, with its pretty cliffside villages. Then it’s France that climbs to the third step of the podium, probably largely thanks to Paris, with its enduring status as a city of romance. More beachy destinations such as Mexico, Bali and Fiji, also figure, landing respectively in 5th, 6th and 10th position.
