This is a Pottery Barn organization unit that I really want, but it’s very expensive. I found it searching for “home organization” on Pinterest. I used to see it in the catalog but now I look at it on Pinterest. Check out the last photo now. I found this from an independent craftsman on Pinterest but it isn’t quite right.
Pinterest is quickly becoming a social media powerhouse where many participants actually end up purchasing things they see and “pin” on their boards.
“According to an infographic by Tamba, Pinterest will account for 40 percent of social media driven purchases by the end of this year. Facebook’s share of purchases will drop to 60 percent and Twitter’s portion will disappear.”
“Here are more stats on the rising power of Pinterest:”
“Buyers referred from Pinterest are 10 percent more likely to buy something and spend 10 percent more than visitors from other social networks.
Pinterest receives 4 million daily unique visits.
Most Pinterest users are between 25-44 years old.
Forty-two percent of Pinterest users have a household income ranging from $25-$50k.”
I personally love the interface on Pinterest. I am very visual and love looking at photos of recipes (I won’t buy cook books without photos), room design and organizational solutions. (Check out my boards here.)
So far, I have not purchased anything that I have seen on Pinterest but I have followed links through to the suppliers where I thought about purchasing.
I have been lusting after these Pottery Barn organizers for years. (See photos above.) I want one for each child and one for me, where there is a cork board for stuff I need to remember for them and in and out and bins for each kid’s stuff. (I’m a visual organizer. I lose it if I can’t see it.)
The Pottery Barn ones are very expensive so I keep looking on Pinterest for other options from independent sellers.
Are you seeing things on Pinterest and then buying? Are you spending more time on Pinterest than on Facebook? Do you like the graphic presentation on Pinterest? Do you like seeing how people are actually using things – ie recipes or organization solutions?
