Of Trials, Transitions and Transformations

“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by.” – Robert Frost

Here we are, hoping that the road we have taken will make a difference, not only for ourselves, but for our wonderful users and supporters.

We have great news to share with all our friends. For those of you who have followed us closely, you have seen that we were able somehow to launch and manage two very exciting services to help anyone monetize Pinterest – Pintics and ShopInterest.co

Our recently launched eCommerce platform helps anyone create a fully featured online store out of any Pinterest board.  ShopInterest.co has generated a lot of interest amongst our users and many other Pinterest users who want to grab the tremendous opportunity of generating sales from their followers. Plus, we have received an investment to continue building ShopInterest.co

However, just like any young startup, we need to focus our scarce resources. Therefore, we have decided to continue building our eCommerce platform and will leave the Pinterest Analytics space for now. However, we have arranged for our Pintics users to go to Pinfluencer.com, as they will provide Pinterest Analytics services for our users. Pintics will remain available until Oct 31st, 2012.

We are also extremely happy to join Mexican.VC and the 500Startups family, and with their support, we plan to make ShopInterest.co the best eCommerce solution for anyone using Pinterest.  Stay Tuned for more updates!

Hi Dear Pinners!

Our Pintics ecommerce platform

I know we have been quiet lately, but for a good cause! As many of you told us, you wanted help to help you sell better with Pinterest, or even without it! So we have been working on launching our eCommerce platform. (Translation = A really cool looking online store you can make in minutes -with easy-to-use Pinterest integration!)

We will also be inviting all our Pintics friends to join us. So everyone gets a chance to experience a better solution to sell than ebay or easy, and leverages the amazing sales power of your Pinterest audience.

If you haven’t sign up yet to Pintics, you can learn more by going to shopinterest.co and sign up there!

Thanks for your support- lots of news going out soon.

Having a ball with PinterestMadness – The best contest for March Madness Fans

Pinterest Madness

Hi fellow pinners!

OMG, we have been so busy getting everything ready that we are late to mention that we have teamed out with the wonderful folks from Emisare Marketing who put together Pinterest Madness! The most fun you can have during march madness! The Elite eight games are going on right now. So check the contest out HERE!

We are honored to be assisting the contest with the analytics they need to support their contest!  This is what we Scott Williams, from Emisare Marketing said to the press:

“To process the volume of entries that NCAA Tournament excitement could generate, Emisare realized that they needed quick access to accurate participation metrics. “We knew we’d need an automated statistics system to run the competition,” notes Williams. “Searching for a service that provides accurate Pinterest analytics, we found Pintics, and asked them to partner with us.”

“As soon as we understood the promise of Pinterest, we realized that marketers would need reliable, high-quality metrics to make it work as a communications tool,” says Pintics Co-Founder Francisco Guerrero. “We’re here to help people understand and optimize all of their Pinterest traffic, so providing the metrics to power this contest was right in our wheelhouse. When Scott explained Pinterest Madness to us, we jumped at the chance to work with his team”

So have fun! Hope your brackets are still alive and going!  We’ll save a few T-shirts for our best followers!
