In an effort to pull my website out of an internet no man's wasteland, I have been tweaking my keywords, meta tags, descriptions etc etc..to the point of my brain turning to mush. Google insists that my site remain barren, with only the occasional lost soul tripping and falling down my URL. So to try and increase traffic, I strolled down the path of Pinterest Promoted Pins. My intent was one of hope for us all. I was going to test it out and do a post today to share my amazing results. The Pinterest Promoted Pins mysterious marketing marvel ended up being just..meh.
The results were 45 repins with 8 clicks to my website. The below stats say it had 56 repins, so maybe 11 to secret boards?? Will I do it again? Maybe. Maybe not. As expected, the campaign didn't attract all that many buyers.
Now they are launching Buyable Pins, showing up on iphones and ipads very soon. Sigh. As of now, this is something I WON'T be trying. Is it just me? I find this very scary and can visualize customer nightmares galore. Products out of stock, wrong products being shipped, customer not receiving refunds...etc etc. I know, I'm being pessimistic. It will be very interesting to see what happens with Pinterest in the upcoming months.
Okay, enough about Pinterest... Let's talk GIVEAWAY!!!
I've had a few requests to purchase my sandblasted pendants, so I've decided to start selling them on my website. I've listed some, and will be listing more in the next few days.
To celebrate, I am offering this sandblasted pendant and ceramic beads set as a GIVEAWAY!
The stone is a pretty red fossil coral sandblasted with my Tree of Life design.
