This week, Pinterest announced the rollout of buyable pins for U.S. Android users. Back in June, Pinterest announced buyable pins for iOS users as well. With Pinterest serving as a huge site for retailers and shoppers, it’s no wonder that they’re putting this sort of tool to use. Because about eighty percent of people buying things on Pinterest are doing so via mobile, buyable pins are a very smart and clear next step. They also announced The Pinterest Shop this week. The Pinterest Shop will serve as an opportunity for people to find collections of buyable pins that are handpicked by Pinterest.

The past few weeks I’ve been dipping my toes into the paid advertising arena on social media, trying out a few different methods and testing the waters.  I’m no expert by any means –extreme beginner alert.  However, with a few weeks under my belt, I can tell you what I have found so far.  Results.

Sweet Deals

With Black Friday coming up the day after tomorrow and Cyber Monday just around the corner, I thought I’d let you all in on a sweet little deal I like to call Merchant Warehouse.  Before starting on my Sprocket journey, I had no clue who Merchant Warehouse was or why it was super important to have such a great company for payment processing.  Now I realize it makes all the difference in the world.  Forget, for a second, about the loads of other benefits MW offers –let’s skip to the obvious benefit, they guarantee that they will save you money.   Literally, if they can’t save you money by switching to them, they will give you $100 for your time.  I’d be hard pressed to find a company that works that hard to make sure that the customer is happy.  One thing that I’ve found when dealing with them, they care if the customer is happy.

Spooky Sprockets!

Ok, so not so spooky really.  It’s Halloween which makes me, inevitably, think of one thing: TWO MONTHS OF MAJOR HOLIDAYS START NOW.  What does that mean for your business? Sales! Promotions! Deals!  This is the time of year where everyone decides to splurge a bit while trying to save a buck.  This is the perfect time of year to hammer out details for a great seasonal deal.  If you haven’t even been considering one yet, it’s definitely not too late.  Most sales don’t start till the end of next month anyway.  You’ve still got time!
