Tune in July 12 – AngelHack National Demo Day

Howdy Pinners! Hope you all had a great Independence Day! There are tons of beautiful fireworks pins on Pinterest. Did you check them out?

In case you didn’t know, we were featured in TechCrunch!!! Yes, Shopinterest – the little product we developed over the weekend at AngelHack Summer 2012. Shortly after its debut, we’ve seen overwhelming amount of interests from people around the globe, to name a new:

“Ever wonder what would happen if Pinterest and Amazon had a baby? Well, it’d probably look a lot like Shopinterest, the newest project from the analytics company Pintics, a tracking service for analytics and data on the Pinterest site.” – from America

“Cojonudo Javier! mucha fuerza, lo vas a petar. Apoyos desde España, ya he firmado, followeado, compartido y de todo.” – from Spain

“핀터레스트 분석서비스 Pintics를만든 사람이 만든 Shopinterest. 핀터레스트의 핀보드를 순식간에 개인 쇼핑몰로 바꿔주는 서비스. 아직 런칭은 하지않은듯” – from Korea

“ShopInterest: Pinterest的电商黄金时代到来!” – from China (Shopinterest gets a lot of media coverage in China – one of the biggest e-commerce markets in the world. See here for a very encouraging and positive report by NetEase (NASDAQ: NTES) – a leading Internet company in China.)

Not enough? We are heading to AngelHack National Demo Day on July 12th, as 1 of the 25 national finalists!!! So excited to meet other winning teams from Seattle, Silicon Valley, Boston and New York!

So, why do we think Shopinterest will be a game changer?

1) From buyer’s perspective, Shopinterest makes your wishes come true.

“I use Pinterest as a visual wish list of the products I’d love to buy if I had a little extra cash – everything from shoes to clothes to makeup to home decor – and I’ve bought a number of products after seeing them pop up on my Pinterest homepage. This is why I’m both intrigued and excited about a new program called Shopinterest that allows you to turn a Pinterest board into an online store.”

2) From seller’s perspective, Shopinterest lets you leverage Pinterest’s popularity to significantly increase traffic and sales. Need some real stats? Here you go ~~~

What is better than creating a product that can benefit both parties and is long-awaited in this era?

Btw, have you ever thought about gleaning insights from your traffic/sales data? Is it Shopinterest + Pintics? I would prefer to save it for another post. :)

Using Pinterest Beyond The Expected – Jeanne for Pinterest and Pintics!

We really hope our friend Jeanne gets at least a tweet from the Pinterest crew. and if she doesn’t, she does have a job with us!  I think her inventive way to using a great looking Pinterest board as a visual resume, and obviously, directed at Pinterest as a plea for work. All in all, brilliant execution. And a great way to do something new. We’ll do a follow-up with Jeanne’s permission on her account analytics. I bet we will find lots of fun facts!….. But we will have to wait a few more days folks, we’re still going through some issues, for more updates, stay tuned and our apologies! 

Pintics’ Demo takes part of the 1st Pinterest Meetup – Held at Ebay

Hi Pinners!!

It has been a couple of very busy weeks, we are working towards our next round of invites, hope for 500 more to come in the next 10 days and also improving our site, even perhaps a new look and feel and more features for your Pinterest analytics.

We also took part of the 1st Pinterest meetup, full of developers and interested parties, held at Ebay, graciously put together by Sudha Jamthe and Robert Schwentker.  There were a couple of demos, from the awesome guys at rumma.ge that have build a fantastic Pinterest-inspired Ebay UI with Pin buttons. Looks lovely. We also had the chance to Demo our web application and hear great things from Kent Brewster, a developer from Pinterest! (but that part is not on the video)

The video is below! Please Pin it!!

Hope you enjoy this and thanks again for your support. More invites coming soon!

Our demo starts around 7:50 minutes into the video. But watch it all . Is really cool.
