P interest ‘Tried it!’ button is the collective new social voice and rating system. Want to know if an item, video, or other content is reliable or any good? Let your digital community of self-proclaimed Pinterest reviewers weigh-in. Much like Yelp, Google, and Amazon reviews.

Pinterest created their own community within the Pinterest application allowing users to click on the ‘Tried It’ Button to give the good, the bad, and the pretty awesome regarding feedback about you, your business, and your services. Rather than be solely based on negative positioning (like Pinterest Fails) this feature allows for neutralized feedback. It serves as Pinterest’s answer to the platform, crowd-sourced demand of the day.

As a consumer who is looking through the ‘Tried It!’ feature, it’s a must to do your due diligence and determine if the people reviewing have tastes and boards that align with yours.
However, as a business owner, you may have just dodged a bullet if someone can explain what specifically they did not like about something so you can correct the issue or offer superior customer service to fix problems that may exists.

In this post, I will introduce you to:

  • Creating a strong CTA on your pins
  • Requesting reviews on your products with the “Tried It” button

Pinterest to Use Their New ‘Tried It!’ Button to Leverage Positivity in Their Community

I have created a strong CTA (Call to Action) on book images I have pinned and requested a review of the book along with choosing either the happy or sad option, after they have read the book or tried a product etc.

This has created another avenue to build social proof.

The “Tried It” button displays the amount of Pinners who have recommend the Pinned items based on the amount of votes the happy and sad feedback featured on the bottom of the pin. So far not too many are leaving feedback.

This is because most pinners have not discovered how important leaving a review is yet, similar to Yelp or Amazon. Using a strong CTA is necessary on any images from products to services, checklists, cheat-sheets, printables, videos, articles that are saved on Pinterest. This gives you an opportunity to review the community feedback and connect with them.

Your business is always about engaging with your clients. The more touches ( good or bad), the better off you will be. Bad reviews are an opportunity to wow clients with superior customer service, and to relate to them as a human being.

Remember people like people who are real!
