When it comes to the best eye catching brands in the retail space on Pinterest, we’ve got you covered.

Sometimes you’re online for a casual browse. Oftentimes, you’re on a mission. Need a wardrobe refresh? Pin it. Making a meal for eight on short notice? Pin it. Living room furniture in need of an overhaul? Create a Pinterest board and pin to your heart's content.

There’s something about seeing your innermost desires on a neatly arranged Pinterest page that is so, totally satisfying. Pinterest is a space that’s uniquely yours, which means brands are tasked with curating boards that fit into their target audiences’ unique tastes and pinning obsessions.

What’s really great about it as a channel—besides the ability to visualize your future Maldives mansion in vivid detail—is that pinners can shop boards with a single click. Oh yes friends, the lounge chair you’ve been lusting after since you saw it in that one issue of Architectural Digest two years ago? It’s on here. You can buy it from your bed. Brick-and-mortar retail spaces definitely have their merits, but a side-by-side digital view of potential outfits with pieces from multiple retailers really comes in handy. Take note, fashion brands. It's time to set up a business account and develop your brand's Pinterest marketing strategies.

How to Market Your Brand on Pinterest Like a Pro

Context is key. The best brands on Pinterest are the ones that tell a story with their products. Like other social networks, Pinterest is also a place for interaction with your audience. Sure, that eye palette looks great in the packaging, but how can you help shoppers with a range of skin tones understand what it will look like on their lids? Savvy brands pin glossy product shots with a mixture of dynamic content that shows it in action. Don't forget to add pin descriptions, talk to your customers, turn pins into mini blog posts, add product links and hashtags. Pinterest is a visual search engine and the best brands on Pinterest keep this in mind by adding highly searched hashtags to their posts. Always keep your social media marketing strategy in mind. Customers deserve to put their hard-earned dollars toward stuff they’ll actually love and use—and retail brands are here for it. So without further ado, here’s a selection of branded Pinterest accounts that are doing it right.


Boards include: fashion week looks, product collections, gift ideas, and sale alerts for the practical shopper.

The Honest Company
