Chobani Case Study.jpg

Food & Drink is one of the most popular categories on Pinterest. As a food brand on Pinterest, Chobani has done a great job at incorporating recipes with brand lifestyle and inspirational pins. Chobani currently has over 8,000 pins, over 200 likes, and 25 boards, with 15 of those boards being recipe boards. Chobani, in comparison to its competitors, is dominating Pinterest, but could increase their Pinterest following and interaction even more if they took some extra steps to promoting their account, like sharing pins on Facebook and having Pinterest-optimized recipe images on their website. On Pinterest, Chobani shares a variety of recipes, inspirational quotes, fitness pins, how-tos, DIYs, video pins, and more. Chobani currently has earned over 108K Pinterest followers.

When browsing products on a brand website, sharing that product via social media buttons is a great way to express interest in that product, announce plans to buy it, or spread your liking for a product after buying it. Pinterest, the third most-popular social media platform in the U.S., has had substantial growth over its past three years. Now with over 70 million users and an estimated 50 million monthly active users, this unique and interactive virtual pin board allows brands to visually market their products like never before, with great opportunity for virality.

A recent study done by 8th Bridge, after analyzing 872 retailers, concluded that Pinterest’s ‘Pin It’ button has now overtaken Facebook’s ‘Like’ button and Twitter’s ‘Tweet’ button on brands’ product pages. According to 8th Bridge, 62% of brands have Pin It buttons, 61% have Tweet buttons, 59% have Like buttons, and 42% have Google+ buttons. (more…)

There is no black and white formula for Pinterest contests and sweepstakes but there are steps you can take while planning a Pinterest contest to make sure it’s timely, planned, promoted, executed, and followed-up with correctly.

1) Determine Your Main Goal

Do you want to increase Pinterest followers, sales, exposure of a new product, or collaborate with a specific brand, pinner, or blogger? Surely it’s a combination of the above, but determine what the main goal is for this upcoming Pinterest contest campaign.

2) Choose: Contest or Sweepstakes?

First and foremost, what is the difference between a contest and a sweepstakes? A contest is a competition where the winner is based off of talent, aka being the best voted entry to win. In a sweepstakes, the winner is based off of a random drawing, so long as their entry follows the rules you’ve set.

Pinterest is a referral powerhouse that brands can’t — and shouldn’t — ignore! There are more than 28M registered users on Pinterest,  and 43% of them prefer associating with retailers and brands on Pinterest, versus just 24% who chose Facebook.

People on Pinterest spend a lot of money, too! On average, purchases driven through Pinterest are $168.83 per checkout — nearly double that of Facebook and Twitter.

We wanted to learn a little more about the Pinterest influencers who help drive this lucrative traffic. Check out our infographic on these top pinners, which details their demographics and habits around pinning and purchasing. It’s a truly powerful group!

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.”
