We’re a fun loving group of shoppers and of course love Pinterest.
Okay, so say you’ve spent a ton of time finding and pinning all sorts of great stuff - anything from wedding bouquets to living room furniture to shoes or a special cocktail (you get the idea).
You can use Rately to reach out to your friends to help you choose. Here’s how to make all that pinning effort go even further.
- Search for something of interest or go to any Pinterest board. For this example, I’ve just searched on Pinterest for an orange wedding bouquet. Here is what those search results look like:
- Next, while on this page, I will go ahead and launch the Rately bookmarklet (find it here in Rately tools). As you see, when you launch the Rately bookmarklet, you will see the items from the page / board on Pinterest.
From here, you can go ahead and select up to 9 items and then add your text to create a Rately question.
Note that for this example I went ahead and checked that I wanted to post to both Facebook and Twitter, as I have logged into both (and I want to post a Rately collection tweet in addition to a Rately collection pin).
Here’s what this looks like (oh, and it takes maybe 5 seconds to do - lickety split):
- Once I click on ask friends, my question is created on Rately so when your friends click through from Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, or an email - they can rate up their favorite and help you choose (and the question looks like this):
Right after you’ve clicked on ask friends, you also can go ahead and create a pin on Pinterest - and maybe even pin it right back on the board that you’ve been using to save up those images of orange bouquets (or anything).
All you need to do is click on the Pinterest button and you can walk through the steps to create what we call a Rately collection pin and put it wherever you like. That pin will look like this:
- Ta-da! You can use your Pinterest boards and all of those pins to reach out to your friends about anything. Rately makes shopping for anything more fun - give it a try.
