She has a ton of insights that I didn't know about Pinterest, who are super interesting. You'll see me during the interview, taking a lot of notes. A lot of these topics are things that were very new to me. She gets into a lot of new things as well on how to find new topics.
So you can create new boards, almost like Pinterest SEL, which I didn't know, something you could do. Also some new features like story pins, she talks about and re and really some Pinterest for different retailers that were very surprising on who can actually use Pinterest.

So, Hey Alyssa, how are you doing today? I'm doing great. How about yourself? Doing good? I love it. I love the topic. We haven't talked about this actually ever. I mean right now, like, you know, you hear Instagram all the time, Facebook, but you don't hear Pinterest coming up as much. And I think it lends itself though, to certain types of products I think are really like the per, like the Pinterest products. So first when you say kind of Pinterest, is it Pinterest marketing, would you call it a Pinterest? Like how would you even describe using Pinterest?
Totally Pinterest marketing. So just like Instagram marketing, Facebook marketing, any other kinds of marketing, it's, it's a different beast. But has some of the similar benefits and this year has been as you know, unusual
To say the least. Yeah, exactly.
But it has been really reflected in Pinterest and the way that people are using it. So for example they're up to 442 million monthly active users, which is up 20% in just six months, which is enormous for them. Yeah. And the number of people buying. So the conversions on Pinterest are, are up three X since the start of the year. So there's a tremendous potential for sales growth from Pinterest. And so I'm excited to talk about it.
So you'll saying the number of people buying, when you say buying, are they people buying them on Pinterest or is it, are you tracking people that came from Pinterest and bought directly on like the shopping cart side? Right. It's
From Pinterest to your site? Yep. Okay.
So a attribution.
