Pinterest has introduced new Mobile Ads Tools that allow advertisers to create
Advertisers will also be able to complete billing information to run the ad without having to access their account from a desktop.
Why we should care
Being able to create ad campaigns from a mobile device makes it easier for smaller advertisers and SMBs to create ads — especially those who may not have the resources to support a full-on social media marketing team.
It also provides an added level of flexibility for advertisers that want to create campaigns “on the go,” making it possible to seize a timely ad opportunity should it present itself.
In addition to creating campaigns, the new mobile ad tools allow advertisers to adjust budgets and targeting, and pause campaigns. They can also edit the URL destination within the ad and campaign name.
Fount, a leather goods company, reported a 4,430% increase in daily engagement with their Pins since using Mobile Ads Tools. “Pinterest is bringing more traffic to our site than Facebook and Instagram, where we also run ads,” said Fount CEO Phillip Wachter.
