What Does Pinmo Do For Marketers?

The Problem with Digital Advertising

Today’s social media landscape is an absolute monster. Of the internet’s 3.58 billion users, nearly 2.6 billion have some kind of direct social media presence. Facebook, the world’s single largest social platform, alone has nearly 2 billion active users. Twitter serves roughly 330 million people monthly. Beyond that are vast closed-off social media markets in countries like China, with their own native social networks.

For those who know how to take advantage of social network marketing, the potential user base is truly immense. Even if your business niche is extremely specific, millions of potential customers across numerous social networks are there to be found, as long as you can reach them effectively though. This, however, is where the biggest problem with all these potential customers lies, and what marketing professionals around the globe spend millions of company dollars in attempt to navigate.

User engagement rates for conventional social media advertising may benefit from the large audiences Facebook is able to filter and help advertisers target from, but success still relies on convincing people to click your links and buy your products via anonymous (and mysterious) ad targeting algorithms. Their shotgun approach is further hindered by the way ads are delivered – in the form of a formal advertisement with the words “Promoted Post” at the top it works, but only if you have enough money to throw at it.

Potential customers are so saturated by unsolicited ads that they pay ever decreasing levels of attention to what’s being pushed at them by anyone except truly trusted sources.

Pinmo takes a rather different approach to social media marketing that deals with some of these issues in distinctly new ways. This what we’re going to do an overview of now.

What Makes Pinmo Unique

In a nutshell, Pinmo reframes the relationship between you, the marketer, and your target audience on social media by delivering your message to these people in a completely new and far more organic way.

Pinmo does this by creating a hybrid form of marketing that blends organic “word-of-mouth” recommendations with paid advertising in a way that you as a marketer can control, measure and track 24 hours a day for extremely high cost effectiveness. Your message is no longer delivered by “Promoted Advertisement” robots, it’s delivered by actual people to the friends in their personal network.

The most crucial single ingredient to the Pinmo approach is this organic user-generated sharing that the platform is based on. We take all the guesswork about target market niches, keywords, user profiles, user preferences and niche groups out of your hands and place message delivery into the much more effective hands of users themselves. People know how to talk to their Facebook, WeChat, and LinkedIn friends even better than you do.

These paid users then share your content right to their friends organically in the most targeted and trustworthy way possible, based on their intimate knowledge of what someone they know is most likely to appreciate.

These types of shares are of enormous value precisely because they get aimed so naturally. The people sharing your ads and content give them an inherently unique personal twist that turns your marketing into something that’s also theirs, delivered right to their friends in a way that makes it much more meaningful. In essence, we financially incentivize our users with extreme precision to manufacture organic sharing that can be controlled for maximum ROI.

Pinmo vs. Traditional Online Marketing

A good way to appreciate the Pinmo approach to targeted advertising is by comparing what we can do for your marketing vs. the more traditional targeted ad approach. Let’s take a look at the key dynamics at work with both:

Traditional Online Marketing:

  • Constant guessing about how to target ads
  • Unreliable results for the same ads week-over-week
  • Fraudulent clicks and fake users
  • Poor tracking for specific shares and conversions
  • High CPC and CPM
  • Low click-through rates from inefficient targeting
  • Expensive campaigns to compensate for inefficiencies

Pinmo’s Organic Sharing:

  • Total tracking of each share, click and conversion
  • Verified human users
  • Verified organic shares to real people
  • Ads targeted directly to people by their own friends
  • Ads targeted by individualized knowledge of target users
  • All actions verified by tamper-proof blockchain technology
  • Simple payment structure
  • All target market guesswork eliminated

As you can see, Pinmo is far more efficient and much more direct in its approach to spreading your promotional message. As we described above, it hybridizes organic, viral sharing with paid, targeted advertising to manufacture the fully natural version almost perfectly.

Most importantly of all for your bottom line as a marketer, payment is only done for actual performance through our tamper-proof blockchain-based activity tracking and user compensation system. The ads you pay for are those that actually get clicked on by real people who received them from those who know their interests and desires best. On the user end, those users who share your ads are being paid for each click they generate through Pinmo’s own cryptocurrency token.

This token itself is fully exchangeable for real cash and other major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, which can themselves also be converted to government-issued money. In other words, the users that are so crucial to spreading your message organically are constantly incentivized to keep doing so as effectively as possible.

To top off the Pinmo platform’s services for marketers even further, we offer our marketing clients a host of tracking and ROI metrics right inside their own easy-to-use dashboard. These include analytics tools that are connected to IBM’s own Watson supercomputer and can use its immense power to help you craft the best performing possible ads for the campaigns your incentivized base of users will share organically.

How It Works

Now that we’ve given you an idea of what makes the incentivized Pinmo process so powerful marketers, let’s get down to the basic nuts and bolts of starting and running a campaign. For most small and medium marketers, doing this is going to be extremely easy.

First and foremost, you’ll need to register on Pinmo as a business. Once you’ve done this through our static desktop site or our iOS and Android-friendly app, you can start creating one or more campaigns for your ads and promotional content inside your personalized Pinmo dashboard.

The dashboard itself can be used to start and adjust a single campaign or handle multiple offerings at the same time. It also offers access to our Watson-powered ad optimization tools and delivers a whole range of metrics for tracking important aspect of campaign ROI. ey features include:

  • Total ad costs
  • Your remaining budget
  • Campaign length
  • Social media platform sharing distribution breakdowns
  • User distribution by geography
  • Cost per click
  • Impressions
  • Total clicks
  • Demographic charts for each social media platform being reached
  • Assorted ad traffic stats

Pinmo Solutions for All Business Sizes

The above covers the essentials of what Pinmo delivers to all of its marketing clients, whether they’re brand-new startups, single page landing sites that launched 24 hours ago, mid-sized companies or major corporations with their own established marketing departments. However, beyond these essentials, different options are available for different client needs.

Most importantly, while small and mid-sized organizations can probably handle effective ad campaigns entirely through Pinmo’s own native platform tools and dashboard features, large companies might not want to entirely abandon their existing advertising structures. We understand this and because of it, we’ve developed a range of enterprise solutions that allow major organizations to integrate the most powerful organic marketing tools and analytics solutions that Pinmo itself offers with their own in-house software tools.

Through this fusion of both, optimization and tracking tools can be integrated with any large organization’s existing ad campaigns for enhancement of analytics and targeted organic ad placement of the kind we specialize in.

The Bottom Line

At its most essential, Pinmo’s platform offers a unique incentive structure for keeping real social media users engaged with your advertising needs and delivering a steady stream of highly targeted, personalized shares to potential customers. Because of this organic aspect, these shares simply can’t be beaten by any conventional online advertising engine in terms of their capacity to generate responsiveness.

What’s more, our tokenized, blockchain-based payment and tracking mechanisms for all of these campaigns ensure that you gain maximum ROI on every dollar you spend while tracking each share, click and conversion down to a real human user and their real human friends.

With Pinmo, you get something genuinely unique regardless of your business size or budget: A completely controllable and scalable organic marketing platform that manufactures viral sharing through a vast and growing network of real human users and their friends.

Where Most Social Media Advertising Fails & How the Pinmo Platform Fixes This

Advertisers have one bottom line that trumps all others – conversion. Your ads can reach millions of viewers but if the level of engagement is low, that reach becomes irrelevant.

Because of this crucial objective, the question of how many viewers your marketing can get to isn’t nearly as important as figuring out how many effectively targeted viewers you’ve reached, for the simple reason that effective targeting equals high conversions.

Reaching these targeted, highly converting viewers have been a promise of social media advertising almost since the inception of social networks and it has driven social media ad spending to gargantuan levels, estimated at roughly $41 billion dollars for 2017 alone.

However, the reality hasn’t always panned out quite as effectively as many marketers might like. Social media marketing is full of holes in which advertiser money can disappear without ROI for key reasons we’ll cover below, before explaining what makes Pinmo’s platform so much more effective.

The vast majority of paid social network marketing as it stands today can be divided into two broad categories – influencer advertising and paid social media advertising.

Influencer Advertising

The chief appeal of influencer advertising is that it relies on the influence of individuals who’ve already (supposedly) built up a strong network of trusting followers who listen to them. When effective, it can lead to very quick boosts in sales through influencer recommendations to their contacts, but it comes with some serious problems.

For one thing, influencers with enough followers to make them useful can be expensive and the returns on a single advertisement with them decrease quickly. Asking a group of influencers to repeatedly promote your product also quickly leads to steadily diminishing returns as the same followers become saturated by repeated exposure to a piece of publicity. Secondly, there’s the measurement problem: Simply put, most influencers don’t offer much in the way of detailed analytics for what they share on an advertiser’s behalf.

Another major issue with influencer marketing is that many high profile influencers frequently engage in what quickly becomes obvious paid promotions to an increasingly anonymous audience of followers. In other words, the organic and reliable recommendation an influencer is supposed to create can quickly turn into something that’s little different from generic paid advertising.

Paid Social Media Advertising

Direct social media advertising offers a level of ad targeting that’s unparalleled in the mainstream online advertising industry. Due to the sheer amount of personal information social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others collect from hundreds of millions of users, advertisers who use their paid ad platforms can customize their ad targeting based on a huge range of criteria. These include users’ detailed demographics, buying habits, social browsing tendencies, web browsing histories, personal interests, political preferences, dietary habits and even factors such as device usage, health issues and hundreds of other attributes.

These are extremely powerful benefits for any advertiser in any niche but even with all these tools, traditional social advertising has its problems.

First, it’s visibly just advertising. You, as an advertiser, are paying for targeted campaigns that charge you per thousand impressions (CPM) or per click (CPC) and these ads are going to appear as paid suggestions on the social media platforms you run them on. No matter how well targeted these ads are, users will still perceive them as more ads among many others from one more untrusted source. This still means clicks and conversions (if it didn’t, social media advertising wouldn’t rake in so much revenue) but the ROI on campaigns can be unreliable and distorted.

This distortion, in particular, brings us to the second huge problem of social media ads: Bots.  Out of the billions of social media user accounts on the major networks today, an enormous percentage are fake user accounts or “bots” that don’t have converting human beings behind them.

The problem with these accounts is that they also interact with social advertising without actually converting in any profitable way. Whenever this happens, analytics metrics make your ads look like they’re performing better than they really are and that translates directly into lost time, lost money and weak ad campaign performance because the verification structure for user engagement isn’t capable of filtering these bots out effectively.

Pinmo’s Ultra-Targeted Social Media Ad Solution

We understand the social media advertising situation and the existing issues within it and developed Pinmo to solve these problems. Most importantly, we blend blockchain verification technology, targeted advertising and organic marketing in a way that almost completely eliminates the weak spots of paid ads and the decreasing returns of influencer marketing.

With Pinmo, marketers set up their accounts for access to a user interface in which AI tools powered by IBM Watson supercomputer help them create targeted ads and ad campaigns for their specific niche. These ads are then algorithmically filtered for delivery to targeted Pinmo users with the highest affinity for each type of ad. It’s with these users that the truly distinct thing about Pinmo’s technology comes into play:

Unlike the uninvolved viewers conventional social media and influencer ad campaigns are aimed at, Pinmo’s constantly growing body of users actively work with the platform and your ads to pick the ones they like most. These users then share these ads right among their own personal networks of social media followers and friends.

They do this because each share, click or conversion they generate comes with a monetary reward for them as well. This sharing is done by real social media users directly to their personal following of other real social media contacts in a way that’s completely verified by 2-tier authentication and blockchain technology.

In other words, your ad campaigns are delivered organically, in the most personally targeted way possible to specific people who actually trust the users who are sharing those ads. No part of the Pinmo advertising process is random, arbitrary or wasted on fake user accounts or viewers who have zero interest in what’s being delivered.

In point-by-point terms, what Pinmo offers is the following:

  • Ad campaign creation that’s assisted by the enormous processing power of IBM Watson supercomputer. This same level of analytics is used to filter your ads for the specific, Pinmo users who are most likely to find them useful for sharing.
  • A 2-tier authentication system that verifies Pinmo users as real people with real social media followers and tracks their sharing from start to finish so that a marketer knows exactly how and where each of their ads are being shared and what types of conversions it generates.
  • Full analytics tracking of all ads and ad campaigns for performance measurement and further refinement. Advertisers can modify funnels, specific ads, and sharing compensation settings for constant optimization of their advertising effectiveness and ROI.

What Pinmo delivers is an ultra-targeted approach to social media advertising in which fully organic sharing is manufactured sustainably and at low cost. Since verified real users are the ones sharing ads right to their own personal circles of followers, the problem of fake user accounts is eliminated, and because these ads are being delivered to other viewers by people they personally know, your ads become something unique on a personal level for their intended recipients.

The decreasing returns and high share costs of mass influencer marketing are also eliminated by the Pinmo platform because you’re paying individual influencers for actual shares or conversions and these users come from a growing pool of similar individuals.

With Pinmo, the sustainability of social media CPC ads is mixed with a refined version of influencer marketing to create continuous, extremely precise engagement at low costs.
