Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
Since its start in 2010, Pinterest has rapidly gained a wide following and is still continuing to grow. It was the fastest website to ever break the 10 million unique visitor count. Pinterest is ranked third among websites that users spend the most time on. They have a simple but powerful concept: a direct and easy way to see and share links to sought-after information and photos. Because of this, Pinterest’s referral traffic is one of the highest among other websites. Pinterest’s quick rise in popularity is due largely in part to its easy-to-use format to share information and photos. With Halloween quickly approaching, PureCostumes.com has decided to use Pinterest as a platform to engage its current customers and also to spread its name and reputation among the Pinterest community.
Pure Costumes’ Pin It To Win It contest was launched on September 3rd and is set to run until September 13th. In order to participate, contestants first must follow Pure Costumes on Pinterest. After doing so, they must then create a new board and title it “Pure Costumes Halloween.” Contestants have until September 13th to pin their favorite costumes from the PureCostumes.com website onto their board. Once they are done pinning their favorite costumes, participants may access the contest on Pure Costume’s Facebook page and fill out the sweepstakes form, making sure to include the URL to the contestant’s Pinterest board. Only one submission is allowed per person, but participants may increase their chances of winning by inviting friends to join the contest as well. Winners will be selected randomly and notified by email.
By creating an easy to follow contest, PureCostumes.com hopes to engage its customer fan base and also have them spread the word about the website. By pinning images and links from the PureCostumes.com website, direct access will be opened up, which will then generate more traffic to the site. Furthermore, by including the PureCostumes.com’s Facebook page in the contest, Pure Costumes aims to also promote its Facebook page and gain a larger following in order to increase brand awareness.
