How to put Pinterest Pins in your Emails

Put Real-Time Pinterest Pins in your Emails
 
Step 1: Go to the SmartBlocks Page
› On the left nav click on Content | SmartBlocks
› Click Recommendations

Step 2: Choose any layout
› Hover over a layout, e.g. 4-Column Responsive With Header
› Click Create

Step 3: Enter Recommendation Properties
› Click Properties
› SmartBlock Name = Top Sellers
› Click Data Source
› Pinner name = cartcontents
› Pinterest baord name = sports
› Click Publish and Use

Step 4: Create a Slot
› Choose for Email Personalization
› Click Use the SmartBlock in a new Slot
› Slot Name = Custom Block Example
› Click Save

Step 5: Add it to your email
› Copy and paste the HTML into your email
› You’ll now have your pinterest board in your email!
› NB: Pinterest SmartBlocks, Instagram SmartBlocks, and 
Product Recommendations have one slot per product, so 
you can use Slot Rules to swap between these types.

Ideal for quickly controlling your marketing: pin products that you want 
to promote and they automatically appear in your marketing email!

 

More Information:

Q: Is it clickable? A: Yes, like all our real-time content. By default, clicking 
a product takes the shopper to the corresponding product page, so shoppers
can buy immediately.

Q. Can I use Slot Rules to swap this for different types of SmartBlock? 
A. Yes, now you can: Product Recommendation, Pinterest and Instagram
SmartBlocks can be swapped because they all use the same type of Slot.

Q: How do I create my own Layout? A: After Step 2, click the pen icon,
edit the Layout HTML, enter a name for it, and click Save.

Q: Can I put this in a web page too? A: Of course - follow exactly the same
steps, except for chosing "for Web Personalization".

Q: How do I pin my products? A: You need the Pinterest browser button.
Once that's installed, go to each product page in turn (so your pin will link 
back to here), and click the Pinterest save button. Read more from Pinterest
