How to use Pinterest for business
Pinterest is growing in popularity as “the hottest new social network.”
Over the past few months, you may have heard some chatter about a brand new social network
called Pinterest. Unique visitors to Pinterest.com increased by 155% just in one month, from December 2011 to January 2012.
Pinterest is a social network that allows users to visually share, curate, and discover new interests by posting, also known as ‘pinning,’ images or videos to their own or others’ pinboards (i.e. a collection of ‘pins,’ usually with a common theme). Users can either upload images from their computer or pin things they find on the web using the Pinterest bookmarklet, Pin It button, or just a URL .
How does Pinterest work in real terms?
In January 2013 Highlife Treehouses got more traffic from Pinterest than Google, Facebook, Twitter, Adwords, Bing, Yahoo and Yell combined!!
As you can see, Pinterest can have a massive impact on generating hits to your website.
