Win Big and Join a Contest on Pinterest

At first I had a bit of trouble finding an adequate contest to enter. Then I found a great site that had a lot of contests listed to enter. If I had more time I would like to have entered more of them. After I finally found a decent contest I was interested in entering the steps for entering were quite simple. I just had to follow @thehipmunk on Pinterest, join their email list, and create board named “Hipmunk Bucket List” and pin the contest image, and 5 travel destinations on my bucket list with the #hipmunkBL. These were not difficult tasks but definitely a way to get me connected to all of their media networks, as I was also directed to their Facebook page where I had the option to “like” the page to stay up to date with the company that way.

I had a great time thinking of places that I would put on my bucket list. This was a rather simple contest to enter but it really did help to lock this company, I had never heard of before, in my mind. Through this experience I can see how Pinterest contests can be great for business. Each time I had to post a travel destination I had to use the company designated hashtag, which gets their site more traffic and name recognition. I think I learned a lot this week by entering this Pinterest contest even though it wasn’t that challenging of an assignment. I think just by going through the steps I can appreciate how Pinterest can be used to advance business.
