Pinterest – a thousand words for health Recently, PM360 posed the question “Should Pharma be Interested in Pinterest?” in the new Trend Talks section of their May newsletter and this got us thinking about Pinterest from a health perspective. Our CEO, Leerom Segal, submitted his quote about the site for their May newsletter. However there was still plenty to say about Pinterest’s potential in pharma. Here is our longer version… If a picture is worth a thousand words then Pinterest is valuable indeed. ComScore also tells us that the audience is 2/3 female, 20-35 years old, and at the higher end of the household income scale. This site is a retailers dream, but does it hold any promise for healthcare marketing? The top categories on Pinterest are fashion, arts and crafts, recipes, seasonal events and holidays, and interior design.

Six mois après avoir levé 100 millions de dollars notamment auprès de Rakuten (lire l'article "Rakutent mène la levée de 100 millions de dollars de Pinterest", du 21/05/12), Pinterest amorce sa stratégie de monétisation en ouvrant une nouvelle catégorie de pages dédiées aux marques. Ces dernières n'étaient jusque là pas les bienvenues sur Pinterest. Le réseau social vient finalement de modifier ses conditions d'utilisation offrant la possibilité aux marques de créer des pages pour promouvoir leurs produits. Elles disposent également de la possibilité de convertir leur ancien compte en compte "business". Ces pages n'ont toutefois pas les mêmes caractéristiques que celles des internautes : les entreprises peuvent disposer d'un badge certifiant l'aspect officiel de leur page de manière à être mieux référencées et identifiées.

5 Strategies for eCommerce Sites to Leverage the potential of Pinterest Pinterest was one of the big success stories last year. Just when nobody thought another social media site could take the online world by storm, the photo-sharing, “virtual scrap board” managed to do just that. Online sites quickly realized that it was sending even more referral traffic than Twitter, and that it was bringing a new look to the web itself. In fact, Pinterest currently drives more online sales than Facebook. So what can today’s eCommerce sites do to learn from and take advantage of Pinterest in the year ahead? Look Like Pinterest Apart from using Pinterest as a channel for referrals and customer retention, eCommerce sites can learn a lot from its user interface and design. Few things are more shareable than photos and images, unless of course we are talking about videos.

Pinterest Introduces Rich Pins for Better Brand Collaboration Pinterest has received its first significant update with how pinned images appear on the website. Called “Rich Pins”, these images that are pinned contain a host of more information right from the originating image site, such as product purchase information or ingredient listings for recipes. Pinterest has detailed several types of pins that have added information on them, including product pins, recipe pins, and movie pins. But this move is really seen as Pinterest working better with brands who get their products pinned frequently, and gives Pinterest users who see those pinned images better information about where the product can be found and purchased. This should hopefully also help the issues of some product images being uploaded directly or from a site that later removes the image, making it difficult for people to track down more information about the product in the image.
