Wishpond Launches First-Ever Multi-Platform Pinterest Contest App for Retailers and Brands
Vancouver, BC, Dec 27, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
Wishpond today announced the launch of its Pinterest Contest App, the only app of its kind that allows merchants to create contests that harness the power of Pinterest on their Facebook Pages, websites and mobile, helping to boost a company's reach and engagement. For example, a furniture store can now run a contest in which users create and submit a Pinterest board of their dream bedroom using the furniture store's items. Entrants will be encouraged to invite their friends to vote for their board to win - pushing the contest's reach throughout a person's entire social network.

Now Your Community Can "Pin It To Win It"
Merchant's can encourage their users to create boards on Pinterest with the items they sell and then submit those boards to enter a contest. The merchant's community can then vote on each of the entered boards directly within the contest app to choose the winner. Merchant's collect each entrant's email address and social data via Facebook's Opengraph, enabling them to re-market to the entrants in hyper-segmented target groups.
Wishpond's Pinterest Contest app includes a robust package of capabilities:
Merchants can entice users to create boards on Pinterest using pictures relating to the merchant's business
Built-in voting pushes entrants to share their boards with friends to get more votes and boost the reach of each contest
The app is integrated with Facebook's Opengraph which allows the app to publish the "Enter" and "Vote" actions to users Facebook Timelines to give the contest reach to their entire Facebook network
Merchants can limit contestant eligibility to only their Facebook fans
Like with all Wishpond contests, merchants can download all of the entrants' email addresses to add to their email list.
"Our clients have been asking for an effective way to get users engaged on Pinterest," said Ali Tajsekandar, CEO of Wishpond. "Our Pinterest Contest App is a simple way to get users sharing a brand's products on Pinterest, leading to more engagement and referral traffic to their online store."
