I need a few Pinterest Friendly Guinea Pigs... lol 2 pages: [1] 2

I have built a board that I call a Pin Puzzle Board. It is a wonky (I think really cool) way to share artwork. This is interactive and requires joining the board.

Since I'm in "beta" mode (aka. It is a private board), I have to send you an invite. If your interested in investing say 5 - 10 minutes of your time testing this idea, then please post your Pinterest account and I'll send you an invite.

Any feedback appreciated.

Fingers crossed that you like it!

Josh

Since I can't see what you mean by "Pin Puzzle" - how can I decide if I want to join?

What are you trying to do here?

Before I make the board public I would like a volunteer or two to try out my idea.

To do so I have to send an invite since the board is still private.

So I am hoping that one or two Zazzlers will volunteer to check this board out.

Once I know this idea is valid then I will make it public.

Having just finished two maze and coloring activity books, I am in a puzzle frame of mind. :> Hit me up, let's see what's up.

It's an interesting concept. It could be a dud or, more importantly, it could very well go viral and become the next online fad.

It does have a curiosity factor to it, that could drive interest. Josh B may be on to something. My test was quick and dirty because I had to get dinner in the oven but already I have ideas bubbling in my head.

It's a painless test so give it a whirl. He needs some more testers and if it proves to be a great idea, you will be in on the ground floor. If not, you only wasted 10 minutes of your life on a secret board you can leave in an instant.

It might just be crazy enough to be as big as Frogger. Josh laughed at that so I thought I would share it here too... :>

I had a few extra minutes I didn't expect to have and I got finished. It is fun and it was a challenge which is hard for me to resist.

***Update ***

So I have added 2 new sections. They are a How to Play, and How to Create a Puzzle sections. The pins are rough and ugly, I know. I will make more beautiful ones for it later. But I do need feed back on the instructions, tips etc. Spelling errors and what not.

You have no idea how exciting this is for me! I barely slept a wink last night...lol

Thanks so much to those who have already joined and played. Shelli even created her own puzzle!! Awesome job Shelli. Roses

I need more volunteers, I can't tell you how helpful it is to have your feedback. Thanks in advance!!

It came out great and was the perfect thing to see. It just "appears" on my screen. Made me smile! And I solved it!

Right now my head is kind of spinning... ya know. Questions like how do I launch this? Can I get bloggers or youtubers to promote it? Can I coordinate all these people if I get them to all launch on the same day... and on and on.

Now the trick is to get it to go viral... well besides figuring out whatever other "issues come up in beta testing...lol

Thanks again Shelli!!

So ... This is a game to play on Pinterest??
Posted: Saturday, August 17, 2019 10:31:28 AM
I had a look, thanks for the invite! I don't really understand the point of this on Pinterest for me as a shopkeeper. Can you explain how I would benefit?

If you created an art puzzle, all the pins in that puzzle can link back to either your store front, POD products, your blog or website.

And you can have your logo, web address on the Promotional/solution pin which is what people would share or pin to their boards...

How much traffic that generates... that's a good question...

Yes, and a way for artists to promote their art.

People play a puzzle game with your artwork.

Thanks. I hit you up on pinterest too

So I just noticed the family graffiti puzzle is out of alignment...

in case your playing...

trying to figure out why now...


ETA - Seems like pinterest isn't recognizing a few pins as rich product pins and therefore isn't adding the title text and the zazzle tag beneath the pin at this moment... That is knocking the pins out of alignment and makes it unplayable...for now. Hopefully it will auto correct and the puzzle will work soon. If not... well... I'll just change the product!!

Gotta love beta testing...lol

Thank you vivendulies and AugieDoggy

You have both raised some interesting questions, made some valid points and pointed out potential tech issues.

Your feedback has been greatly appreciated.
