Sony has recently began sending out dedicated emails highlighting Pinterest; integrating its own boards & pins into the email and driving traffic to its Pinterest page.
The visual heavy email achieved an open rate 67% higher than Sony’s goal, and a 16% higher click-through rate (CTR) than expected.
Previously Sony had trialled including a Pin it button next to its products in a VAIO summer launch email, so users could pin and share directly from the email.
Users pinned from that email 3,000 times.
