New Pinterest Service in the Pipeline

Through feedback from our customers, and analysis of industry trends and social media usage statistics, we are adding an additional service to our range in the near future and are just finalising the details.

Demographic studies have also shown that the average Pinterest user is of a more affluent social group in terms of income, 47% of users have made a purchase directly as a result of seeing an item on Pinterest and the average time spent on Pinterest is 15.8 minutes.
