Getting Pinned – What does it mean to you?

No I’m not referring to your high school sweetheart, or that episode of Happy Days… Today getting “pinned” or “repinned” is all about one of my favorite social media sites – Pinterest.com

For those of you that don’t know what Pinterest is –  This is a site that allows users to group and share photos by creating virtual cork boards and “pinning” items to those “boards”… Did I lose you?

Take a look at my Pinterest profile –

 

You can see some of my “Boards” – “Sliding Doors”, “Organization Ideas”, “Closets” etc…

Each photo is a “Pin” – you can upload a pin from your computer, or you can pin a photo from anywhere on the web…

Why do you care and what does this all mean for your business?  Glad you asked…

According to Freebase.com Pinterest is the 3rd largest platform on the web behind only Facebook and Twitter…

Ask yourself –

Is this a place your potential customers are hanging out?

Do your competitors have a presence on this platform?  If they don’t today, they will tomorrow…

Users of Pinterest typically pin vacation spots, recipes and of course photos of their dream home complete with great kitchens, closets, and garages… See where I am going with this…

Each one of your pins that gets “repinned” to a potential customer’s board should link back to your website… Maybe it links back to your blog or your “contact us” page…

The best part is this is all free – all you have to do is create your presence…
