If you’re wondering what a group board can do for your bottom line, look no further.

Pinterest group boards are just like regular Pinterest boards except that others are allowed to pin images on your board(s) — by invite only. Don’t worry — when you accept an invitation to a group board it doesn’t take away from the three secret boards Pinterest gives you.

How to add people to your group board on Pinterest

To invite pinners to your group board on Pinterest, click “Edit Board” and simply type in name or email and click invite!

Why group boards? (more…)

HelloSociety, an all-inclusive Pinterest marketing agency, recently surveyed 110 of the most-followed pinners to get a better understanding of their social media use beyond Pinterest, and marketers should probably pay attention. After all, when one of these top Pinterest users pins an image from a brand’s site, it can generate hundreds of visits within a matter of hours.

Case in point: HelloSociety’s TOP pinners average 700+ repins per image — some going as high as the 1,000’s — driving significant site traffic while boosting brand awareness and sales. Impressive? Yes! But in order to run even more well-rounded and effective campaigns with these Pinterest superstars, brands need to be aware of their influence across all social media channels. (more…)

How did IHeartNapTime come about?

I started my blog about 3 years ago. My husband was in med school and I had recently had a baby. I got pretty bored, so I just started creating things. Crafting has always been a huge passion of mine, and eventually I started posting about the crafts and recipes I make at home since people always asked, “how did you make that craft?” or “what’s the recipe for this?” (more…)

HelloSociety recently mapped out where the most influential pinners on Pinterest reside, and the results might not be what you think. Here’s what our CEO had to say about it in The Social Times:

“This is largely a matter of trendsetters vs. trend-followers,” explained Kyla Brennan, founder and CEO of  HelloSociety.  “It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that while the majority of pinners may reside in Middle America, the most influential ones live in the cities where trends are set. Pinterest is a place for discovery, and it would be hard to discover lots of exciting new things if you’re only following people just like yourself who live similar lifestyles in similar places.”

In honor of National Craft Month, this week we have picked our top 5 DIY crafts that caught our eye (and may have influenced a trip or two to the craft store…).

DIY projects are always a great way to add a personal touch to anything. It also gives you extra bonus points when people ask, “where did you get that?” and you tell them you made it yourself!

Here are our top 5 DIY pins this week:

1. Sharpie design on mug, 350 degree oven for 30 min.

Great and inexpensive way to add your own designs and personality to plain, boring kitchenware.
