“As Pinterest has been growing over the past year we have noticed a lot of people pinning their favorite wedding bands from TungstenWorld.com on their Pinterest accounts,” said Chris B., Tungsten World Marketing Manager. “We integrated Pinterest into our e-commerce website earlier this year and have noticed an even greater amount of pins by our customers. Doing a contest on Pinterest will be a great way to facilitate even more sharing and provide a chance to win something in the process.”
Awarding prizes to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, Tungsten World’s Pinterest contest is running until the end of June, and the steps to win are simple. Participants need to follow Tungsten World’s Pinterest page at http://www.pinterest.com/tungstenworld and create a new board on Pinterest titled “Tungsten Wedding Bands.” After creating the board, the next step is to “pin” the contest to their new board to share with other possible participants. Now, the fun starts. Participants are asked to pin 3 of their favorite tungsten rings from TungstenWorld.com to the board. With Tungsten World integrating “pin it” buttons for each product on their website, this should be very easy for participants, and while the minimum is 3 rings, contestants can post more if they’d like. After they’ve pinned their 3 favorites, they’ll share their board’s URL with Tungsten World and their friends via Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/tungstenworld. First place will be the participant with the most combined comments, likes and re-pins and will receive a gift card good for $150 at http://www.tungstenworld.com. The next most number of comments, likes and re-pins will receive a $50 gift card, and third place will win a tungsten heart pendant. All contestants with 15 or more likes will also receive a free tungsten heart pendant just for participating.
“In today’s digital age, social media has drastically changed the way we interact and keep in touch. Pinterest has emerged as one of today’s most popular social media sites, and Tungsten World has decided to climb aboard the craze by launching a Pinterest exclusive contest,” said Tungsten World Online Marketing Assistant David Y. “Participants can expect to be inspired with wedding ring and band ideas by viewing other contestant’s boards. Like all other social media applications, it’s only fun when your friends are involved, so showing off and showing up your friends is highly recommended!”
