Measuring the success of a new ad format One of the unique elements of the Promoted Video ad format is that it starts by capturing a user’s attention with an interactive preview highlighting the best parts of a brand’s video. The preview animates as someone scrolls both backwards and forwards. As a result, the user is in complete control and the motion is 100% adaptive. Once a user sees the video preview in their feed, they can then click to watch the entire video with sound in the new Pinterest native player. Old El Paso worked closely with the Pin Factory, Pinterest’s in-house creative studio, to choose the best frames to capture attention in the preview and drive clicks to the full video. To ensure that they showed the video to the most qualified audience, Old El Paso targeted the “foodie” persona—people who are actively saving and searching for food-related content on Pinterest.
