Reno, NV (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
ShortStack, the custom app building platform, is making it easy for businesses to run Pinterest contests on their Facebook Pages using ShortStack’s new “Pin and Win” template.
“The Pin and Win template allows businesses to combine the popularity of Pinterest and Facebook contests,” said Jim Belosic, CEO, ShortStack. “A recent study we read from Syncapse showed that 35 percent of Fans like a Page on Facebook in order to participate in contests, and we wanted to offer an easy way for businesses to leverage Pinterest and contests when using ShortStack.”
ShortStack’s “Pin and Win” template makes it possible to create a contest on Facebook that asks fans to Pin a certain image to their Pinterest account using a specific hashtag or with the image itself. Entrants must enter their contact information for a chance to win a prize.
Businesses can build a custom Facebook app using this template to collect information from their fans for future marketing outreach, drive Likes and engagement and grow their Facebook fan base. Pinterest currently has 70 million active users. Once a Pin is put on Pinterest, 80% of the time it will be re-pinned which gives brands an opportunity to reach an extended audience.
