3. Nestlé USA
  • when launching their brand-new Cauliflower Crispy Thin Crust Pizza, CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN® Frozen Pizza turned to Pinterest to drive awareness during the busy summer and fall season.
  • Used standard and Promoted Video ads, early campaign results have been promising.

According to Holly Honroth, Marketing Associate, CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN® Frozen Pizza “Pinterest is the perfect home to launch our Cauliflower Crispy Thin Crust Pizza, as it is a place where people come with an open mind and appetite for the latest trends. Pinterest provides an ideal opportunity to reach these consumers as they plan for ways to make their meals more exciting and nutritious. We’re pleased by the campaign’s performance so far”.

Here are three Pinterest Marketing Strategies with actionable tips for a successful CPG launch campaign according to Pinterest:

1. Design Pinterest Marketing Strategies that take consumers from awareness to purchase

  • take advantage of key Pinterest ad formats including Promoted Video for awareness and Promoted Carousel for consideration.
  • make it seamless for people to buy by providing links to digital coupons or the ability to “quick add” your product to grocers’ digital shopping carts.

2. “Heavy up” on media at the beginning of the campaign

We know from the ODC research that Pinners are more likely to purchase new products early in their lifecycle. Make sure your media plan is set up to encourage that first time purchase as well as the next.

3. Continue to engage with your consumers beyond launch

  • Encouraging people to try your new product is key, but repeat purchases can help ensure long-term product viability.
  • Use Audience Targeting to retarget consumers who’ve engaged with—and purchased from—your brand to turn a new product to a must-have.
