From Interruption to Inspiration: Why Ads Stand Out When They Fit In

The best ads do more than help customers decide what to buy. They help customers decide who to be. As our industry focuses on intent and the bottom of the funnel, we’re forgetting about the magic of deciding. Inspired ads can help people turn their dreams into decisions. Join Pinterest to learn how the most effective ads don’t interrupt—they inspire.

Life at the Intersection of Content and Commerce

The intersection of digital content and commerce is reshaping the marketing industry globally. Until recently content and commerce existed in separate silos, creating disjointed customer experiences. The swift increase of mobile technology, along with the implementation of user-generated content into creative marketing campaigns has changed the game completely. Today, leading brands from a variety of industries are using compelling content to drive commerce online and people into stores. They are creating seamless, relevant experiences that not only inspire consumers, but also delight them enough to take action.

Unlocking Data from Across the Organization

Figuring out what data is there, how to get access to it, how to use it, is a challenge. Hear from some people that are on this journey and what they’ve learned so far and how it has impacted the organization.
