“We are the complete marketing suite for visual interest-based social networks,” Piqora CEO Sharad Verma told me yesterday. “We’re the only company that provides a unified dashboard for Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr.”
Pinterest just raised $200 million at a $2.5 billion valuation. But if the company seriously starts to monetize what marketers like Sephora are finding in the social shopping platform, two and a half billion dollars is far too cheap.
I’m told that getting the exact right shade of makeup can be more than a little difficult. In fact, according to beauty industry giant Sephora, it takes the average woman seven tries to find the perfect foundation. With the cost of quality makeup what it is right now, that’s gotta hurt.
