Across all of the platforms you use to engage with your community, one has been strategically designed to drive conversions for your brand. At its core, Pinterest inspires. But in practice, Pinterest can hold the key to social ROI. With 87% of Pinterest users having purchased a product due to Pinterest, the platform opens up a unique (and valuable) opportunity for brands — and for Sprout.

As an official Pinterest Marketing Partner, we are excited to announce our newest integration — and satisfy our #1 customer requested feature: Pinterest in Sprout. Available to all plans, Sprout’s Pinterest integration unlocks publishing and reporting capabilities so your team can create, publish and measure Pinterest content directly within Sprout Social.

Plan More Efficiently

Reaching new people can be an ongoing and collaborative process — planning timelines, creating compelling content and predicting future audience behaviors. The right set of tools can ensure your Pinterest strategy is set up for success. Sprout’s built-in Message Approval workflow facilitates convenient collaboration when scheduling and creating new Pins while also increasing efficiency during the review and approval process.

Pinterest provides a visual-first approach so utilize Message Preview to view future Pins and to ensure alignment with your brand’s overall Pinterest strategy. If your brand is planning a creative campaign featuring dedicated boards and Pins, repurpose evergreen content by leveraging the Asset Library, a central location for brand-approved content, repeated descriptions and approved images.

Post With Precision

For most, a strong digital strategy can span across several networks and platforms, multiple profiles and include an assortment of assets that can be time-consuming for teams to manage. With Sprout as your central platform, you and your team will save time by planning and publishing content for Pinterest alongside your broader strategy.

The Publishing Calendar provides an all-inclusive look into social posts across multiple profiles, networks and campaign tags. If featuring customer stories or influencer marketing is a part of your strategy, quickly save Pins and post them to a themed board with Sprout’s Chrome browser extension to highlight real people promoting your brand.
