Pinterest Ads Deliver 706% ROAS for Patternbank

When Patternbank teamed up with Loom to expand their customer base, we turned to Pinterest to showcase the client’s stunning pattern collection. With an array of beautiful designs to choose from, and with users twice as likely to shop online than non-Pinterest users*, it was the perfect platform to introduce new users and increase conversions.

Patternbank has been revolutionising textile design since 2012, bringing together leading designers with businesses far and wide. When our Paid Media expert Sam took over the account in 2021, it was his mission to drive new users to the site. As Patternbank already had a fantastic customer retention rate, increasing top-of-the-funnel traffic was our priority.

As Patternbank’s target audience were using Pinterest, and with their colourful designs being already Pinterest-worthy, we knew we could crack this social platform and bring in the results Patternbank were looking for.

Loom’s Pinterest Ad Strategy:

Pinterest is the home of creatives, so Patternbank’s campaign needed to stand out, especially as our aim was attracting new users.

  • We took an upper and middle funnel approach, kicking off activity in the UK domestic market with the plan to expand into new markets later on, such as the USA and Australia.
  • For the first stage of our strategy, we set up initial Brand Awareness campaigns to place Patternbank in front of users and increase traffic to their website. We tested various interest campaigns, using a combination of USP-based images and videos to promote Patternbank’s pattern selection.
  • Alongside this, we also implemented keyword-based campaigns to reach users searching with a range of match types on Pinterest.
  • After testing various Brand Awareness campaigns we replicated the most successful campaigns in the US and Australia, creating great results.
  • Once our pins had brought in some decent growth, we moved on to the next stage of our Ads strategy – and the marketing funnel. To push them to convert, we launched additional conversion-based Pinterest campaigns. We optimised for users with high intent, focusing on obtaining sales for the client.

Sam Gosling - PPC & Biddable Media Manager

Sam loves applying creative solutions to client strategies, and Pinterest is no exception. Sam utilised Pinterest ads for Patternbank by paying close attention to their target audience and reaching them at the right place at the right time.




““Our strategy has been guided by the data that when we convert new users through top of funnel advertising we naturally retain them. This has meant that we can aim for a ROAS of 300% because in 3 months time the estimated ROAS for 1 new acquired customer is 900% when teamed with a retention strategy via Instagram, Google and email”
