5 Pinterest Contests Examined | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Nicole D'Alonzo for socialfresh. I selected it because there are several brands on Pinterest leading the way on experimenting with contests. You can see what they're doing, and maybe you'll get an idea for your company.


Pinterest can be a great place to do a contest, but the author reminds us to check out Terms of Use before launching.


Here are some highlights:


**Types of Contests on Pinterest


**Best Pinboard

Users create a pin board under the contest guidelines and brands select the best one


**Most likes/repins

Contest entrants create pinboards and specific images for users to like and/or repin and entrants win based on the amount of likes/repins they receive


**Sweepstakes /entries

Random winners drawn from a pool on entries. People can enter the sweepstakes by repinning an image and/or following a brand on Pinterest
