After months of waiting, advertisers will finally be able to start buying Promoted Pins, starting in January.
The company officially announced Promoted Pins, its first advertising unit, last January, however it has limited access to a small number of partner advertisers. It has gradually given access to the service to more businesses, including some small and medium businesses, but most have been left waiting for a widespread rollout.
Well the wait is nearly over, according to an announcement made yesterday by Tim Kendall, Pinterest’s monetization chief.
“The business is scaling very rapidly,” Kendall told USA Today.
The company also announced it has reached over one million active business accounts globally yesterday.
