The power of Pinterest

Many people make a simplebooklet with content that is valuable for more than a quick view on a social network. This could be a book of poetry, a product sheet, or a fashion lookbook. The content of these booklets should be available for longer than the 10 minutes it appears on a timeline feed. When you are looking for sustainable reach, Pinterest is a very valuable tool for your marketing.
Pinterest has a number of unique characteristics for a social network that works very well with your booklet format and content. I'd like to talk about three of them in this article.

A new pricing perspective

We've changed our approach to how we price simplebooklet to better reflect how you use our platform. Our focus was on simplicity, fairness, and accessibility.
First, simplicity was key for us. It makes it easier for us to manage and easier for you to select the right pricing plan for you. When its easier for us, we can pass that savings onto our members (hey, we need less accountants). It also makes it very easy for you to decide which plan works best for your needs.
