Pinterest Brand

Pinterest brand:

Pinterest created quite a buzz when it arrived on the social network scene just over 2 years ago. With a membership of roughly 20 million, there is a huge audience to be captured on the picture sharing network

The site however has had some difficulty, with plateauing growth figures for new users it has tried to turn around its fortunes recently by demoing a new look as well as making its first acquisition, a recipe website Punchfork.

For brands, Pinterest has proved unsure advertising ground. Unusually, pages with the most followers are run by individuals and not companies. Let’s have a look at some successful Pinterest profiles that have managed to stand out amongst the crowd…
