what not to do

  • -Suggest that Pinterest sponsors or endorses you or the contest.
  • -Require people to pin from a selection—let them pin their own stuff.
  • -Make people pin or repin your contest rules. This is a biggie.
  • -Run a sweepstakes where each pin, repin, board, like or follow represents an entry.
  • -Encourage spammy behavior, such as asking participants to comment.
  • -Ask pinners to vote with pins, repins, boards, or likes.
  • -Overdo it: contests can get old fast.
  • -Require a minimum number of pins. One is plenty.
