Harnessing the Power of Pinterest for Your Business [Podcast #004]

Pinterest gained huge popularity in 2012, but many felt it would be a “flavor of the month”, “new kid on the block” social media site”.  Many wondered if it would retain it’s popularity.

But that didn’t happen.  Pinterest grew to 10 million users faster than any other site in history and is estimated to hit 17 million by September of this year..

Pinterest recently introduced Pinterest Business pages. 

If you have a business and want more sales, you cannot ignore the power of Pinterest any longer.  Pinterest is now not only the 3rd largest social network in terms of visits to its site, but also drives more referral traffic than Google+, YouTube, Reddit and LinkedIn COMBINED.

In this episode of “Creative in Business” with guest Shelley Webb, we’ll cover:

  • Why you should use Pinterest for your business
  • The difference between a personal account & a business account
  • How you can use Pinterest if you offer a service rather than a physical product
  • The best strategies for using Pinterest, gaining followers and getting more sales
  • Pinterest étiquette
