Ugh, another social media platform? You’re thinking “I barely have time for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Youtube, now I have to do Pinterest? Before you wave this one off lets look at the perks of pinning for your business.
What is it?
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard where one shares the things they like with friends through photos. Those who “pin” can arrange their favorite things onto themed pinboards ranging from scenery, home décor, fashion, food, inventions and much more. If you were planning a party you could map the whole shin-dig out on Pinterest.
Why should business owners start pinning?
Pinterest is another great tool to market your product or service in a visual way. Investing in quality photos is key because captions are minimal on this platform. Let’s say you were a wholesaler of party products or even a party planner. You could use Pinterest to showcase your party designs, themes, and ideas in order to entice a broader clientele.
Pinterest recently reached 10 million monthly unique users at a rate that was faster than any independent site in history and daily users have increased by more than 145% since the start of 2012. In fact, Pinterest is so popular the wait to join is becoming longer, so hurry up and wait by requesting an invite here: http://pinterest.com/landing/ and while we wait for Publicity Works to receive an invitation we’ll be peeking at our PR Manager’s pins.
Don’t get pinned by only using Facebook and Twitter, Pinterest is the hottest social start up in 2012 – start pinning your way to more business.
