It’s becoming clear that social networking plays a vital role in business promotion, with Facebook and Twitter being the most popular vessels for businesses to drive website referrals. One site that is fast becoming just as popular for its accessibility and ease of use to quickly share images and promote business is Pinterest.
Pinterest, put simply, is an online bulletin board that allows its users to share images that they might find interesting and/or inspirational. Once a user ‘pins’ an image to their own themed ‘board’ that image can then been viewed and shared between other Pinterest users. Pinterest is ideal for enhancing your businesses brand image and by adding links in descriptions and titles you can drive traffic directly to your own website, or even allow users to share on Facebook and Twitter, allowing a broad coverage across all of the social networking sites that you might utilise.
Top Tips For Using Pinterest For Business
