Innovative New Ad Formats
Pinterest unveiled two new ad formats available now: Showcase ads and Quiz ads. These ad formats aim to reach audiences from the product discovery stage to the point of purchase, which is perfect for brands looking to boost their e-commerce sales.
Showcase ads feature a collection of multiple Pins in one ad unit. Each Pin can link out to a website, making it easy for advertisers to highlight various products or styles to appeal to their unique audiences and give audiences the information they want to make a purchase.
Quiz ads introduce an interactive audience experience. Advertisers can ask their audience custom questions, and the audience will see personalized results based on their answers. Want to learn all about your targeted audience? This is a great opportunity to gather data and insights via customizable Quiz ads!
Pinterest also shared a sneak peek into an upcoming AI-powered tool, Creative Studio. This innovative visualization feature uses generative AI to create unique product imagery — giving companies and brands of all sizes access to tailored, aesthetically appealing creative.
Sabrina Ellis, Chief Product Officer at Pinterest, said, “We’ve seen that lifestyle images on average drive significantly higher clickthrough rates than simple product images, but creating eye-catching, high-quality creative can be expensive and resource-heavy…With Creative Studio, businesses can generate scenes for their next campaign in a snap, no photoshoot required.”
This feature allows advertisers to make their Pins more customized and shoppable than ever. In the future, Pinterest wants Creative Studio to dynamically tailor ads to each individual person — an exciting development for the future of personalized social media advertising.
