Jonathan Goldmann, Head of Social at Jetsetter.com said, “With Pinfluencer we were able to easily run a successful scavenger type contest recently and saw a 2,400% increase in Pins/Day, generating close to 4,000 pins and repins that reached over 7 million Pinterest users. Pinfluencer’s Promotions dashboard, with its Omniture, Coremetrics, and Google Analytics integration, tracked not just participants and pins, but also ROI metrics like revenue and clicks and made the reporting very intuitive.”
Pinfluencer’s Pinterest Promotions platform offers great flexibility in promotion types, from Contests to Sweepstakes, and user experiences such as “create a board,” “scavenger hunt,” “repin to a board,” “Pin to Win,” etc. Pinterest Promotions help brands connect with their audience in unique and creative ways while addressing business goals such as customer acquisition, website traffic and revenue generation. Brands such as Gilt, Jetsetter, Ann Taylor, Birchbox, and Johnston & Murphy have been using Pinfluencer’s Promotions platform to run sweepstakes, pin to win, and other types of Pinterest contests.
