Put these insights to work
  • How can you feature your food or beverage brand in a summer picnic campaign or creative picnic date idea? Pinners are especially interested in cultivating (and consuming!) edible gardens. Flavour your offers with this month’s trending tastes – strawberry and avocado – from food storage to recipes and more!

  • Summer music festival season kicks off in April. Create a campaign for festival-goers that takes them from day to night with light linen materials. Cargo pants are making a comeback, with ample pocket space helping to keep things hands-free. Not in the retail space? Think about how your app or service can help this audience make the most of the weekend.

  • With checked-bag fees on the rise, people on Pinterest are looking for creative ways to pack light. To reach Pinners looking to maximise carry-on space and minimise airport queues, think about campaigns that feature the extra mileage that they can get from your product using a number of use cases. Think gloss (a Pinterest 100 trend!), which packs a one-two punch, adding sparkle to both lips and lids, or illustrate all the ways that a jean jacket can be dressed up or down.
