Happy Thursday, everyone! For those of you who attended the Pinterest Creator Festival today, we'd love to hear from you! We wanted to start a topic for people to connect and share their feedback and thoughts about the PCF or the content being shared throughout the event.
📌tip: watch any of the segments you may have missed on demand. The login you created at the beginning of the festival will work for the next 30 days.@ pinterestcreatorsfestival.com.
Anything else you want to share, we're all ears! We can't wait to hear from you. 💕
I love that we are seeing & hearing stories from a diverse group of creators. And that everyone didn’t start out big or were already public personalities that would otherwise have had it so easy to build an audience & make connections on the platform.
I also love the idea of having a topic in the community for people to connect and share tips!
Thanks so much for this festival. Excellent idea!
I would have loved to learn more of the technical side of the business profiles - best practices and advice for pinning branded content, audience insights, story ideas (since it's a new feature). Also important: A lot of us in the chat were mentioning that not being able to link a website to a story pin is a huge missed opportunity. Only so much information can be conveyed in a story pin, so it would be helpful from a user perspective to be able to click through to a website (or even click through to an existing pin) for more information. (Also this helps from a business perspective because it can increase click-throughs. Plus, story pins get MUCH more reach than regular pins).
I didn't know you can't add a link to a story pin. I don't have them yet so I've not been fortunate enough to play with them. But even if they can bring brand awareness without the link that's really great, especially since they get so much more traction & attention.
