5 Brands Winning at Pinterest
When it comes to Pinterest, not all brands are quite sure what to do with it.
According to data from Digitas, 70 percent of brand engagement on Pinterest is generated by users, not brands themselves. But of the brands that are on Pinterest, some have figured out better than others how to make use of the social image-gathering site. And clearly there is value in Pinterest users. According to Sephora, it’s Pinterest followers spend 15 times more than their Facebook fans
A new report from Unmetric looked at over 5,000 branded Pinterest pages to see which brands were getting the most followers, posting the most pins and getting the most repins. Unsurprisingly, a lot of the brands that are doing well are retail brands, like Nordstrom and L.L. Bean, but not all of them are. Some publishing brands are taking advantage of their content and their voice and bringing it to Pinterest. For example Everyday Health has one of the most popular branded boards on Pinterest, and Mashable, defying the Pinterest stereotype of being a place for female focused content, has one of the most commented-on branded boards.
See below for the top five branded Pinterest boards and what those brands are doing to get so many followers.
