A new article on Social Media Today
reports that Pinterest just announced a new event. The Pinterest Creators Festival is set to feature a selection of experts who will give advice and tips to marketers everywhere who want to build a better presence on the platform.
"Every month, over 400M people come to Pinterest for ideas and inspiration. That's where creators like you come in. The content you share gets saved, tried, and remixed by people searching for it. That's the magic of Pinterest. So let's get down to building - together. We're hosting an event focused on growing online communities, telling captivating stories, and turning ideas into businesses."
Pinterest has already said its algorithm favors video content, so it's worth noting that a new collaboration with Vimeo makes posting content on the platform simpler and quicker. The Creator Festival event aims to highlight top creators on the site and encourage users to get involved too:
"We hope that everyone who sees this new work, tries a new Story Pin, or joins our festival, will carpe this diem. And every diem after this. Because there's a huge audience out there, looking for compelling ideas--for what to make for dinner, or to make a plan, or to make their life better--and they could find yours. You just have to make it."
As the author points out, the language used is a little weird, but the sentiment behind this gesture is appropriate, given the current situation. If you're looking to improve your own creative efforts on Pinterest, this could be something you might want to get involved with- especially if you-re not completely up to speed with how the platform works.
