Australian retailer BIG W recently launched their next Trend Badge campaign on Pinterest to inspire shoppers heading to the platform for decorating ideas ahead of the upcoming festive season.
The new campaign was shaped by Pinterest’s insights from Pinterest Predicts 2022, which aligns with the four series of themes that BIG W conceptualized for how to bring products from their seasonal collection to life, including Celestial Scandi, Fantastical Joy, Garden Tradition and Island Beauty.
Pinterest’s Trend badge is an insight-driven advertising solution that enables brands to tap into the top themes, with inspiring content and ideas that Pinterest users are searching for during key seasonal moments. Advertisers have the opportunity to own a specific trend on Pinterest and be the only brand to have the Trend Badge on Pins for the idea in that country.
Trend Badges are an easy way for brands to inspire Pinterest users with the very ideas they’re looking for with relevant, of-the-moment content.
Stephanie Denman, campaign marketing manager at BIG W, said: “Our aim with this year’s Trends badge was to inspire and engage shoppers who are in the planning mindset and showcase key products from the new Christmas range. After the huge success of our last Trend Badge campaign in 2021, we were excited to work with Pinterest again, this time using Pinterest Predicts insights.
“We chose these four key trends as they resonated most with BIG W’s latest Christmas decorating themes, and fit well with the interests of our target audience.”
Lottie Laws, sales director at Pinterest, said: “Pinterest has always been a destination for shopping, and retailers like BIG W are able to reach a uniquely decision-oriented and commercially minded audience on the platform. Pinners are planners, which is why Pinterest sees searches for seasonal moments like Christmas increase two to three months before the holiday.
“BIG W’s campaign is an example of how retailers can take advantage of Pinterest’s trending insights to get in front of festive shoppers at the right moment.”
