In case you’ve been living in a mountain cave in some distant land for the past couple of months, you maybe totally unaware of the latest social media site to hit us all… it’s called Pinterest it is a relatively new social networking site that allows users to create online image collages, then quickly and easily share those collages — called “pinboards” — with other Pinterest users.
It’s fun, easy, and catching on like wildfire right now. Infact it is down right addictive. I get on there and I can’t stop. My children were using it long before me and thy kept telling me to go look at their boards. As they are all getting married in the next 9 months they have all been busy pinning… it’s it a lot of fun.
Part of Pinterest’s appeal is that it’s beautiful.
It really is, especially any of the food boards, they just make you want to eat.
Everything looks better on Pinterest thats for sure.So here we go,enter the lovely world of Pinterest, and all the troubles of your day-to-day life just seem to slip away in a stream of perfect little black dresses, puppies, and clean and perfect children who never seem to get dirty or mouth off to their parents.
Where pets look adorable, bodies are perfect, houses look amazing, quotes seems to be put up just for me, right there, right now It’s a great world to escape to and whats more you don’t even need to write anything just ohhhh and ahhhh to yourself, press the repin button and you are good to go girl ….
Because it’s image-based, the core of Pinterest is overwhelmingly positive. I like to think of Pinterest as Facebook without the whining, and at present without the bad language, that’s if you get that.
Yes, Pinterest is beautiful. And yes, its users love it. But don’t let all the hearts and flowers fool you. Behind those lovely images, Pinterest is fast becoming a heavy hitting marketing tool for brands and businesses … like yours.
What is Pinterest and why should I care?
Once you’ve got a Pinterest account, you can create online collages (“boards”) for different topics you’re interested in, and then add images and videos to your boards by “pinning” them (the equivalent of using glue sticks on old-school vision boards, but faster, slicker, and considerably cooler.)
Pinterest has nearly five million users, and is rapidly growing. Nearly 1.5 million unique users visit Pinterest daily, spending an average of 15 minutes a day on the site. Those are incredible stats, I guess by the time I post this that would have increased by thousands. I am sure once you start on Pinterest you won’t be able to stop and before you know it you will be showing people How To Use Pinterest.
Think those inspiring vision boards don’t result in referral traffic to websites and blogs? Think again.
In January 2012, Pinterest drove greater traffic to websites than LinkedIn, Google Plus, Reddit, and Youtube — combined. I have seen a huge difference in traffic from Pinterest to my main website. It is fantastic, I always want more. Check out the infographic below and you will see just how quickly Pinterest has evolved and how quick it is growing.

How to use Pinterest as a Marketing Tool.
That’s the question that most people have. Well there are some do’s and don’t that’s for sure. I have a video below that will explain some but really it comes down to the rule of life “don’t do to others what you don’t want them to do to you”
It is very easy in Pinterest to abuse the system but I am sure if you do you will be punished quickly. Your account will disappear and also people will not stay around as friends for too long either.
Don’t spam people’s pins and boards… some just keep doing it over and over I know well good news unfollow them.
