marketing on pinterestIs Pinterest good for my business.
If you are into anything online, then pinterest has to be something you are looking into.
I am hearing story after story of people putting something up on pinterest and it is generating huge amounts of traffic and sales.
I didn’t even know what pinterest was until I was over in the USA 2 weeks ago and a great friend of mine started to tell me about it.
He told me of people putting up an image on their facebook page, someone then putting it on pinterest and all of a sudden they had made sales, generated leads and their traffic had gone through the roof.
It seems that “social networking” is going to continue to boom as more and more entrepreneurs bring websites to the net that seemingly go boom over night.
So what is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
Pinterest has a definite place in the social media network and I think we are going to here a lot more about it.
As facebook becomes tougher to deal with (just like google did) we can expect to find new and more innovative ways to build business and make money online.
My suggestions with Pinterest:
- Start an account (my account is http://pinterest.com/jameshannan/) make sure you follow me when you get setup.
- Watch what the other more experienced “pinners” are doing.
- Start having a go yourself.
- More advanced design or get someone else to design some images for you.
But most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!
Too many people fall into the trap of focusing too hard and missing the whole idea of social networking…and that is to build relationships and have fun.
