MuteSix was tasked with the goal of driving purchases for Lunya on Pinterest, especially to Acquisition. We wanted to take advantage of the lower CPM’s on Pinterest to combat the growing CPM’s on Facebook and Instagram.
Instead of relying on Pinterest as a Remarketing and Retention platform, we wanted to ensure Pinterest would push top of funnel traffic that would convert. In order to do this, we utilized creative that was performing well on other platforms, like Facebook and Instagram. We optimized those top performing ads by following creative best practices on Pinterest, such as using high quality visual images, adding a clear CTA, building into a 2:3 aspect ratio, and adding a logo on every Pin for subtle branding.
Drive more sales with inspired shopping on Pinterest! If you haven’t been advertising on Pinterest, instead focusing your efforts on bigger yet more expensive platforms like Facebook and Instagram, you may want to reconsider your approach. This is because Pinterest can be an extremely effective advertising platform for brands looking to target a set demographic with intriguing products. That being said, standing out on a platform filled with high-quality creative content and tailored images can be a huge challenge. However, with the help of a Pinterest advertising agency, you can take full advantage of this platform and everything it has to offer.
It’s understandable that you may not be as familiar with Pinterest as a platform. Although Pinterest has fewer users than some of the other big social media platforms, Pinterest is where shoppers come to discover new brands and decide what to buy next. As a result, if you’re looking to impact people’s buying choices, then you need to be advertising on Pinterest. Despite relatively “low” user numbers, over 360 million people worldwide visit Pinterest each month to help them plan and visualize their next purchases. But what does this actually look like in practice?
Pinterest describes itself as a “visual discovery engine” that allows you to search for “Pins” spanning a variety of different areas, for example home decor, crafting, cooking recipes, fashion, and more. You can then save these Pins to Boards that you create, name, and organize based on the categories you choose. For example, say you’re looking to redesign your living room. You can search for “living room decor” with your chosen style such as modern, minimalist, classic, mid-century modern, etc. From there, you can scroll through the different Pins as inspiration and save them to your Board for easy access.
While that’s one aspect of Pinterest, shoppable Pins are a newer aspect of this burgeoning platform. This feature allows you to effectively post your products as Pins that can then take potential customers directly to your website to purchase. This feature is extremely effective on Pinterest as shopping is a top priority for 48% of Pinterest users. Furthermore, Pinterest has seen more than 2.5 times more shoppable Pins in 2020 compared to 2019. Most convincingly, 83% of weekly Pinterest users have made a purchase based on their app activity with 50% making a purchase after seeing a promoted Pin that aligned with their interests.
These numbers alone set Pinterest apart from other social media platforms where users aren’t necessarily looking to make a purchase. Instead, they are looking to keep up and communicate with friends and family.
Another thing that sets Pinterest apart from other platforms is its user base. 71% of Pinterest users are female, 70% have a college degree and more than 50% of them earn more than $75,000 a year. When it comes to age, 34% of Pinterest users are between the ages of 18 and 29 while 35% are between the ages of 35 and 49. If you’re looking to target people within these demographic groups, then you definitely need to be advertising on Pinterest. But how do you go about advertising on this platform?
When advertising on Pinterest, you need to first choose your overall goal in order to achieve the best possible results. When it comes to advertising on this platform, there are three different goals to choose from:

MuteSix was tasked with the goal of driving purchases for Lunya on Pinterest. Lunya is a luxury sleepwear brand that uses cool, comfortable, and quality fabrics to promote sleep and relaxation.

As you now know, 71% of Pinterest users are female and a majority of Pinterest users earn more than $75,000 a year.
We wanted to take advantage of the lower CPM’s on Pinterest to combat the growing CPM’s on Facebook and Instagram. As a result, we could better utilize Lunya’s advertising budget on this unique platform while still achieving amazing results.
