Martin Beck says, “Pinterest is giving Buyable Pins to more businesses. The company announced today that is it partnering with three more e-commerce platforms — Bigcommerce, Magento and IBM Commerce — to offer merchants access to sell directly on Pinterest. Pinterest also has switched the feature on for Bloomingdale’s, Wayfair, DVF, Steven Alan and thousands of new merchants from Shopify and Demandware, the e-commerce platforms it launched with.

‘Pinterest CEO: Our Ads Are More Effective’ – ‘Marketing Land’ Article

Martin Beck says, “Pinterest is different. Less a social network for people to share with friends, instead “Pinterest is about me, what I want to do. What I’m thinking about doing in the future,” co-founder and CEO Ben Silbermann said during an interview on stage at the IAB Mixx conference in New York this week. And that difference, Silbermann said, makes Pinterest an especially effective forum for advertising because brands’ products and services are a natural part of that content mix. Ads on Pinterest are relatively new. Promoted Pins, the main ad product, has been around for 14... [...]

Martin Beck says, “Nearly three months after launching Buyable Pins, Pinterest is still keeping quiet about the product, but early returns from a number of merchants we spoke with are promising. And Pinterest was willing to tell us this week that Buyable Pins are bringing new customers on board. “One of the things we are hearing is that people are getting a lot of new customers through this channel,” Pinterest’s head of commerce Michael Yamartino told Marketing Land in a telephone interview. “It’s not just people who were already going to buy this or who were already frequent shoppers... [...]

‘Pinterest hits 100 million users, proving the addiction is real’ – ‘Mashable’

Alicia Marie Tan says, “Pinterest addicts, you’re not alone. Pinterest reached 100 million monthly active users, the company announced in a blog post on Wednesday, a big milestone for the visual bookmarking treasure chest. In March, the company was valued at $11 billion, which put it right behind Snapchat — but ahead of Dropbox and Airbnb — at the time. Additionally, 70% of those 100 million monthly active users aren’t just on Pinterest for the pins; they’re saving links or clicking through to learn more. The number of Pinterest searches also grown 81% in the last year,... [...]

‘How You Can Generate Results From Promoted Pins on Pinterest’ – ‘Entrepreneur’ Blog

Brian Honigman says, “Pinterest has been steadily building itself as a deeply powerful social referral machine. While not as big as its competitors, Pinterest’s devoted users and ability to manufacture intent have made it a great way to drive valuable traffic to your site. In addition, Pinterest is unlike other social networks in that their posts have real staying power, and can drive long-term value and traffic. While all of these benefits are available via organic posts, the relatively new and vastly under-explored realm of promoted pins offers a wealth of new opportunities. For July’s #InsiderChat on... [...]

‘Why Pinterest should be part of your marketing strategy’ – ‘Econsultancy’ Blog

Chloe Basterfield says, “Social sharing goes beyond your friends list. Even ultra-social apps like Pinterest can work wonders for marketers with the right approach. It’s been described as a ‘guide for brides’ and a ‘pasteboard for patterns’ but Pinterest is going places you never suspected. Which means it may now be a worthwhile addition to your marketing cloud. Not as a tactical ‘everyone else is there’ approach, but as a strategic marketing decision. After all, according to Sprout Social, 93% of Pinterest users shopped online in the last nine months. Pinning... [...]

‘Pin It to Win It: The Do’s and Don’ts of Advertising On Pinterest’ – ‘’ Blog

Greg Shuey says, “When formulating a paid content promotion plan, most advertisers turn to the main players: Facebook, Twitter and Google Adwords. But a new kid is in town, and when Pinterest rolled out the beta version of promoted pins last year, it became a game changer. Pinterest has a highly active and targeted userbase, and can often be a direct link to a purchase. The only problem? Advertising on this social juggernaut is still new, and is therefore uncharted territory. The good news is that with some knowledge and planning, taking advantage of Pinterest advertising doesn’t have... [...]

While there are many reasons for this, a standout is its ability to personalize curated boards around topics of interest. From recipes to workouts, interior design, fashion and more, there seems to be an endless trove of content opportunities on Pinterest for companies to showcase their offerings. The question is, with so much content on Pinterest, how are leading companies standing out? A good example comes from a company you... [...]
