Pinterest Leads Consumers From Pin To Purchase

Marketers may soon add Pinterest into their attribution strategy. Studies have demonstrated the social site’s ability to generate leads. Now a recent study suggests it prompts consumers to make purchases. Some 21% of respondents to a recent survey with a Pinterest account have purchased a product after seeing a picture on the site.

The PriceGrabber survey of 4,851 U.S. online consumers conducted between March 13 and 26 reveals that respondents who purchased a product based on seeing it strictly on Pinterest were asked to select all items purchased: 33% said food and cooking; 32%, fashion and clothing; 30%, home decorating; and 26%, crafts.
