Fancy curating your own Gift Guide?
We’ll be selecting the best Pinterest boards curated by the Folksy Community (that’s you!) and publishing them as Gift Guides.
If your board is chosen, it will appear in the selection of Gift Guides on the homepage in the same way that staff-curated boards do, and on our Gift Guides page which is linked to across the site. You can include one of your own items, and the Gift Guide will link back to your Folksy shop (or a blog/social media profile if you are a buyer only, and don’t have a seller account on Folksy).
You can find community-curated boards published as ‘Wishlists’ in the Gift Guides here:
We will also be using boards as the basis for some of our Folksy Weekly buyer emails (which are sent directly to 70,000 subscribers weekly), and for sharing on Twitter.
GuidelinesCreate a board on [Pinterest.com] and pin your favourite items from Folksy. Boards with 15 or more items from Folksy will be considered, and the best boards tend to be on a theme (e.g. colour, subject, material, event).
NOW you can also add other pins to your boards that relate to that theme (eg DIY tutorials, recipes) - but please DON’T include products from other ecommerce sites or pins that link through to other online shopping platforms.
The items that you pin from Folksy need to:
- Be available for sale
- Have great product images
- Look great together as a theme
Even if your board is not selected, please keep your Gift Guides updated and share them on the Showcase forum and on your own social media channels - they’re a great way to drive traffic to your shop!
We need your submissions to make this work, so get Pinning and we look forward to seeing your selections!
