  • Pinterest has had amazing growth in recent months. Compared to, a similar service provider, that launched in Feb. 2007.
  • Now if the growth from Sept 11 through Dec. 11 isn’t exciting enough, look at their growth during January 2012.
  • Traffic growth has slowed in 2012, but users are on the rise. Users have grown by 75% in 2012.
  • This user-base is NOT the typical user-base as early adopters of a new social media platform. Much of the female user-base is coming from middle America, not the west coast and not a young male audience like you often find are the early adopters in the highly tech savvy space of social media.
  • This user-base is also a much older audience. Often times you find the early adopters of a new social media platform are much younger with the bulk of the user-base falling between the ages of 20-30 yrs. old.
  • And in Sept. Shareaholic released a report showing that Pinterest ousted Yahoo in organic traffic taking over the #4 spot.
  • Large companies are joining. Using Pinterest to show their products, industry, related images, etc.

    • 26. •Goal - To come up with a strategy to establish as a Pinterest authority. •Idea - To build a killer infographic that would display all of the best practices for making a website image perfect for pins. •Results - Wait a slide ;)...@atraine
    • 27. •We created a beautiful infographic. You can see the full graphic here: images-pinterest •We decided that our client would get a lot more out of having the graphic featured on a major publishing site rather than their own. •Mashable seemed to be a perfect fit, so we pitched@atraine the idea and the graphic exploded.
