Promoted Pins: Pinterest Ads Now Live

Pinterest has followed a recognizable progression we should all recognize: create free innovative sharing tool, grow membership, entrench users, and then slowly slip in advertising. Pinterest users are diverse, but college-educated women aged 18-50 make up the biggest segment. Pinterest is easily customizable to a users’ interests so boards will vary significantly, but businesses can now target “promoted pins” to show up in a Pinner’s feed based on keywords, content type, or user demographic.
