A Visual Guide to Pinterest | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

Pinterest has slowly been building itself up as an advertising alternative to Google and Facebook over the past 12 months.


The company’s focus has historically been on building an engaged user base through its intuitive, visual interface. As a social network, it has always offered something a little different.


However, advertisers have been skeptical about whether Pinterest could ‘monetize’ this model, due to the nature of engagements users have and also the demographics that typically spend time on the site.


Those concerns have not been allayed altogether, but Pinterest has made some fascinating moves of late. They have launched a paid search partnership with Kenshoo, completely upgraded their visual search capabilities, and expanded their reach by adding a new Google Chrome extension.
