  19. Takeaways • Beware the agency(ies) that try to sell you Pinterest campaigns. • Question everything, especially the wild claims of success by the very agency that made the campaign • Look for suspicious things like the agency pitching bloggers and media outlets to write about them • Be sure to ask how the campaign will drive business impact for you, instead of free PR for them (agency)April 30, 2012 19

  29. Takeaways • If your brand is content and visually driven (e.g. magazine) Pinterest is a great, additional free resource for promoting your content • You still have to add value and provide something unique; otherwise no one will follow you or “repin” (help spread) • Use Pinterest as just one part of a digital ecosystem to drive users to your website where you have far more detailed analytics.April 30, 2012 29
