  • I have to admit I LOVE Pinterest. I could spend days lost in the beautiful images and content that just flows through it. It reminds of in HS when I would pull pictures and articles from magazines on the latest fashion trends or skiing sticking them up on my wall or making a poster. It’s a very virtual version of that concept only better. Know you can view others with similar interests and tastes and learn even more from what they discover. If you haven’t joined Pinterest I encourage you to check it out, but be warned . . . It will draw you in and won’t let you out!
  • The process is similar to the other social platforms, you have profile, description, picture and you follow and/or are followed back.
  • The reason we are hearing so much about Pinterest right now is it is going viral, RIGHT NOW. It grew 1.2 million uses in 42 days, just 42 days. YIKES, that kicks the growth numbers of any other platform out there.
  • In order to build a business Pinterest profile you need to register through your business twitter account. Currently Pinterest does not recognize Facebook business pages.Build out your business profile the same way you would any of your social media business profiles
  • There are two ways to engage peopleThey can follow your boards which means they will be notified via the newsfeed when the board is updatedThey can follow you as a user and they will notified each time you pin something.
  • Simialr to all of your social platforms, build engaging data. Think of your business and in terms of things that would visually engage users and prospects. Make sure your promote your Pinterest profile the same way you would any of your other social platforms. Especially around images add the pin it button.
  • BRIAN SFINAS TO NARRATE
  • Be creative how can you visually represent your business, what new things can you create that will help clients and prospects visually understand what you do.
  • All new social platforms the links start as follow links, meaning that Google follows the links a bit of theGoogle page rank transfers. Typically as the platform grows the turn the links to “no follow” links to prevent spamming of their site. While a “no follow” link doesn’t transfer page rank Google still pays attention to the link. Also, in the last 12 months Google has started to pay close attention to social signals. Right now the links out of Pinterest have huge value, but we are not sure how long that will last. Included in our references is a link to a search engine journal article and interview with Matt Cutts from Google.
  • Chobani has done a great job with it’s Pinterest profile page. The images are very engaging and intriguing and draw the attention of people who are more likely to buy ChobaniYougur. I know this because I am am one of those people.
  • GE is a great example of B2B effectively utilizing Pinterest for brand and engagement. If GE can do it, you can do it. Their success really supports that Pinterest is for all businesses.
  • So as each new social platform evolves we all have to make decisions about whether we can add more to the mix. Clearly Pinterest is showing some strong early signs . . . But so was google+. Next week we will cover more about the business application of Pinterest and what your choices are.
  • Okay we got information for this from EVERY where. There http://bitly.com/AEUKrR
