What’s Pinterest?

May 12, 2012

There’s been quite a bit of hoopla about this new social media platform.
I mean . . . it’s not everyday a site rockets to the #3 most popular social media site!

So — have you checked out Pinterest yet?
Or, are you like, “What in the world is Pinterest? Another social media network?!”

Yes, but look at it this way:
Pinterest is the newest way a biz can bring in $$.

If you’re not sure what it is, have a quick look at my page: http://pinterest.com/rosecllc
& if you’re already on Pinterest, feel free to connect with me there!

Pinterest is a site that allows you to organize all the cool things you like. You “pin” pictures or videos to “boards.”  Once you do this,  people can see your pins — either by conducting a search or finding you through one of their contacts sharing your pin.  Anyone can follow your boards and/or “repin” your photos/videos to their own boards because they liked what you shared.  Likewise, you can also browse pinboards created by other people & share what they originally pinned.

People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes & organize their favorite recipes.  Business & brands use the space to tell their story.  Since I am my brand, my boards include business & pleasure items.  Business items are at the top of the page, & the more personal things I like are pinned to boards at the bottom.

It’s a very cool visual space for your company to use.

& check out how a few big brands are using it too!
