There’s a Lot of Interest in Pinterest: Article Roundup

by D’vorah Lansky

While Pinterest has been around for quite awhile (2010) it has only recently begun picking up steam and interest. I’ve been doing research on and reviewing articles on this exciting new phenomenon and rather than composing an article sharing my findings and opinion, I’d like to share with you a few articles that seem to be “spot-on” and extremely informative.

(Scroll down for links to articles across the Web along with a recommendation for further reading. Enjoy!)

Whether you’re promoting awareness of a certain cause, want more traffic to your blog or are promoting your business, Pinterest offers a unique opportunity to get your message out there through the use of images. Here are just a few of the fun things Pinterest offers:

  • A visual cork board where people “pin” up things they are interested in, on specific topics
  • The ability to pin both images and videos
  • The opportunity to add a link to an image that either opens up to the image or that links to any site you’d like
  • Access for people to pin your content to their board. You then broaden your reach as you show up on their board
  • Pinterest also offers powerful search engine benefits

Another great thing about Pinterest is that you don’t need have to have a lot of followers to gain visibility. Pinterest is a very open website and people are always searching for images and topics of interest, so it’s easy to get started right away.

I hope you find this resource helpful. If you do or if you would like to share your questions, tips, or ideas on this exciting new social network, please scroll down to “weigh-in”.
