Cool pins from Martha Stewart! Details from Mashable:
Are you one of the millions who draw home inspiration from Martha Stewart’s many social media accounts or apps?
A commanding voice on all aspects of baking, decorating and crafting, Stewart is also a whiz with her social media strategy. With more than 2.5 million followers on Twitter and more than 418,000 Likes on just one of her Facebook pages, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia is an influential social media force.
Stewart told a huge crowd at BlogHer 2012 that she prefers Twitter to Facebook. Twitter, she said, just makes sense. She can reach more followers in less time. She told Mashable she does most of her own tweeting. In fact, Twitter is one of the top five ways Martha Stewart’s products and brands get referrals.
In addition to being a rock star on Twitter, Stewart is a prolific Pinterest user, with more than 80,000 followers.
She and her team are aiming to grow the brand even more by harnessing the power of social media and new ecommerce platforms.
In October, Stewart is partnering with Etsy to present, “American Made,” a competition that will be featured inMartha Stewart Living magazine. It will highlight 10 U.S. entrepreneurs working on various lifestyle products. The magazine’s editorial team will select one winner who will receive $10,000 and be featured in the December issue.
All of Stewart’s magazines are now on the iPad, with new editions rolling out each month. Martha Stewart Weddings for the iPad launched May 21 and Whole Living launched on the iPad on April 10.
This summer, in partnership with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, interactive lifestyle brand Happy launched the Martha Stewart CraftStudio app. This app brings paper crafting to the iPad. Users can get creative by making digital scrapbooks, photo embellishments, cards and keepsakes. It’s one of a number of apps for the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch under MSLO, which include: Martha Stewart Cocktails, Martha Stewart Cookies and Whole Living Smoothies.
