Pinterest Place Pins to Target
Pinterest Helps Hotels Target Traveler Segments
Hotels are learning that Pinterest, now the fastest-growing social media channel, is a
great place to perform strategic marketing for travelers. In fact, more than 750
million travel pins exist on the platform today.
Pinterest Place Pins give hotels the ability to create maps of their city and pin
locations or businesses relevant to a specific type of traveler—wedding parties,
families, couples, foodies and adventurers, for example. This is an opportunity for
hotel marketers to get creative, and a chance to lead potential customers toward the
hotel’s website to drive more direct bookings.
We’ve created some examples of Place Pins hotels could recreate, and some tips for
building them to grab the attention of certain travelers and increase direct bookings.
Wedding Parties: Create a Keyword-Rich Planning Guide
Pack the title and description of the map with keywords that are commonly used
when searching for wedding ideas, family activities or other trips details.
Families: Create Detailed Descriptions of Family Attractions
Place as much detail about a location as possible in its description to keep users
on the map, with the goal of driving them to your direct booking page.
Couples: Craft a Landing Page That Encourages Bookings
Create a landing page that users will reach upon clicking your booking page link.
Include relevant information and offers to encourage direct booking.
Foodies: Use Employees to Gather Local Recommendations
Give your employees access to a foodie map and encourage them to post their
favorite restaurants to give guests a local-approved list of top spots.
Adventurers: Optimize Maps for Mobile Use
Place your maps at the top of the Pinterest account so they are displayed first for
