If you are serious about marketing you and your brand, it’s time to jump on the train. I have resisted because I thought it would die out. But it is getting stronger everyday and will pass Tumblr very soon. My mantra when talking about marketing is that we shop with our eyes first and Pinterest is all about the images of the items that you like and want to share.
This is a great article about it http://www.quicksprout.com/2012/02/06/the-marketers-guide-to-pinterest/
Here is my Pinterest board: http://pinterest.com/beckleecottage/ I can already see the value of this site. My name brand BeckLee Cottage is there for SEO, I can see pins and links to other sites. That will give me exposure and continue the links with other people. This may be bigger than anyone ever imagined. Well the developers imagined it but the rest of us may have not. I had an invitation a long time ago and just deleted the link. Now once I wanted one I had to get on a waiting list for a week. I got an invitation the other day. One of my favorites Etsy shops the Silvermagpies is already using it on her own branding.
Let me know what you think about Pinterest. I would love to know.
