Pinterest's new Carousel tool - anyone else tried it? Examples please!
Posted: Thursday, November 29, 2018 5:37:56 PM
I've been playing around with Pinterest's new carousel tool (finally got some time!)

I think it could be a game changer. You can create mini slidehsows (carousels) with a max of 5 slides in the carousel. Each slide can have its own text and link.

I can see us Zazzlers showcasing our work or even showing how to personalize designs we've made with template text / images. In the run up to the Holiday season this could be massive.

I've made one showcasing my Nifty Promo Control Panel - take a look at it as an example of the sorts of things you can do creatively with a carousel.

It's here: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/332562753731366757/

Please drop off a link to your Carousel pin in a reply here so we can share in each other's creativity and learn how best to use them.

Thanks everyone!

Here's one I made showing how to fill in Zazzle business card templates:

I'll report back on how well the pin does.

I clicked on your links and only see a static pin ??

I assume that you added multiple images?

Is this BUSINESS only - I don't see it mentioned anywhere in my Pinterest account.

Perhaps it is only in UK at the moment?

There are < and > image nav buttons at left and right, on top of the images.

I'm not sure if it's business accounts only. I see the link here:

It worked for me but I also have a business account. Great idea though Mark.

Those little "next slide" arrows are hardly noticeable, if at all. I think I'll wait a while longer.
