Although this ad is not pinned by Pepsi themselves on Pinterest this is a great example of using Halloween in your marketing plan. This bold advertisement uses Halloween as a playful way to compare their product to another.

Whether you’re looking to pin your brand’s festive items or your very own Pinterest Halloween favorites it isn’t too late to post spooky content to keep your target audience engaged. Just like trick or treaters, if you don’t give your followers what they want they might not come back and knock on your door next year!
