  • Manually Tracking Eligibility• How much time does it take to sort through Contest/Sweepstakes entries to confirm eligibility?• How much does that cost your organization? Is it worth it? Work Smarter, Not Harder.
  • K.I.S.S.Require 2 of the following: • Follow the brand • Pin X Pins from Website • Pin X Pins from Boards • Create a board • Repin this image • Hashtags #
  • Create a Board• Pro’s • User will curate it with 5+ images • Pinner might build on it • Easy for brand to observe• Con’s • It’s a barrier to entry • Likely to be deleted after promotion• Is a Board Necessary? • If you’re asking for a range of complimentary pins that need to be “curated together” • If your theme is so unique it’s unlikely the pinner already has a board to pin to.
  • Follow The Brand• Pro’s • Grow follower base for future reach • Low barrier to entry • Good for showing the bosses• Con’s • Users may get confused between follow Which of these follows the brand and follow board brand, and which follows the board?
  • RePin From Boards• Pro’s • You can pre-curate good content that you know drive virality, clicks, and conversions • Low barrier to entry • Keeps pinners in Pinterest• Con’s • Users may just “go through the motions” • Less creativity from pinner • Less variety
  • Pin from Website• Pro’s • Website Traffic • Pinners will browse extensively • Pinners might buy• Con’s • People might get lost, distracted, and forget • Getting people in and out of social channels can cause drop-off• When to do this • Need to learn more about the content that inspires people • Asking for highly curated boards • For “scavenger hunt” themes
  • Hashtags• Pro’s • Might grab some peoples attention and raise awareness of promo • If Pinterest search improves, it may help with search• Con’s • People always typo or simply forget #Pinyourwaytotheuk • Barrier to entry • Cannot follow or search, so it #Pamperspinparty doesn’t help with discovery • Legacy practice with little purpose #Kiehl’s• Recommendation #levanal • If you’re set on it, use hashtags in product descriptions
  • User Generated Pins / Content• Pro’s • Very high engagement value • Insightful • Crowdsourcing• Con’s • It’s a very high barrier to entry • Quality will be questionable • Significantly reduces entry rate
