Did You Know That Google+ and Pinterest Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jelly?

This is a great article from the archives of Peg Fitzpatrick. It may be slightly outdated, but it's still very much true--both networks are _search powerhouses!

Google+ is tied (and indexed) in Google Search. Pinterest is becoming the fastest growing search engine (with users that have high buying intent).

Smart marketers and businesses would do well to pair them together in their marketing strategy.

Need some fresh ideas to boost your email subscribers?

Email subscribers are one of your most valuable assets. But it's not always easy coming up with viable ideas for capturing them.

Thankfully, Kissmetrics has a recent blog post that is a treasure trove of ideas for getting the subscriber boost you're looking for!

One of our favorite tactics is Content Upgrades. The idea is that you create a free piece of content (like a blog post) but then you offer something on top of it (in exchange for the reader's email) that adds more value to the free piece of content. Some examples would be:

- Blog post with 12 tips, and a content upgrade that has 8 more bonus tips!
- Blog post with a case study, and a content upgrade that has a bonus infographic
- Blog post that teaches a tutorial, and a content upgrade that has bonus video/worksheet
- Blog post, and a content upgrade that is simply a PDF version of the blog post

It is a pretty simple concept that can dramatically improve your opt-in rates.

What's your favorite tactic from the list?

Pinterest announces Pincodes for brands

What are they? Essentially a way to connect a real life product to a brand-curated Pinterest Board.

The example used in the announcement is a customer seeing an item in-store with a Pincode that links them into a board that the brand has created with similar items.

This is almost like a "recommended items" list you would find on a typical e-commerce site.

Smart? Strange? Too complicated for people to actually use?

Facebook launches a “video creators” tool
Could be a huge deal for content creators

For those video content creators who have been on the fence about Facebook's video platform, this might just bee the push they needed.

It's not only giving them exclusive access to new in-video tools to make their streams more immersive and rich, they're also creating a new website where users can manage their content and communities.

Seems like a direct shot at YouTube's Creator Studio.

We'll just wait and see how adoption rates go. But if we were to speculate, this is certainly a big step in the right direction for Facebook.

What do you think?
