Innovative Marketing on Pinterest

Join PinChat tonight at 9PM ET to discuss innovative marketing on Pinterest. 

Check out the following campaigns as a reference for tonight’s questions.

Smoyz  did a Pinterest campaign for Kotex in which they found 50 inspiring women.  

Then the brand sent virtual gifts to each one of the individuals. If the recipient pinned the virtual gift, she would then get a real gift.

100% of the women posted something about their gift, not only on Pinterest, but also on all the other major social networks.

Total Kotex kits sent, 50. Total interactions, 2,284. Total Impressions, 694,853.

Honda’s Pintermission

Honda offered some of the most active pinners $500 to take a 24-hour Pinterest break, to get out and do some of the stuff they’re pinning about. 

The lucky Pinners will share images from their short break on Honda’s Pinterest page after coming back.  Five pinners have taken Honda up on their offer – one is travelling to London and another is heading to Hawaii.
