There’s little doubt that Pinterest is the hottest social media site on the “billboards” right now. In a matter of no time at all, it has climbed into the top ten and climbing. Last week, we answered a few questions on how to use Pinterest to promote your business.
This week, 13 more tips to use Pinterest from mashable.com.
For those of you wondering what the heck is Pinterest then in short, it’s a type of wish list social media site where you get to post your ideas. Takes a little getting used to but it seems folks are liking the concept and swarming to make the most of it while it’s hot.
Now, as we told you last week, you need to be sensible about using Pinterest for attracting responsive leads to your business; the same attraction marketing principles apply here as they do to platforms such as Facebook. You need to earn the trust of your followers. The more fresh content you post the more eyes you’ll get on your profile.
Pinterest has been one of the hottest new social networks on the radar for a few months now. In fact, Pinterest has cracked the current list of top 10 social networks — and it’s technically still invite-only.
For many users, Pinterest serves as a comprehensive wish list of sorts. Users (a.k.a. Pinners) post Pins to Boards that they organize by topic or theme. For instance, a user who is planning to remodel a house may Pin interior decorating ideas to a Design Board. Or a bride-to-be can post wedding dress inspirations to a Wedding Board. With 32 different topic areas, users can browse everything from fitness to art to science.
Like many new startups that experience an unprecedented spike in popularity, Pinterest has yet to streamline some of its features. The search tool, for example, needs a serious makeover. When the server isn’t overloaded entirely, a simple search often takes a while to load. Plus, we’d like to be able to create private boards and, ultimately, to filter categories for better Pin discovery…..
Now obviously, Pinterest is not going to be everyone’s “cup of tea” and may be deemed as too much like hard work to get any interest and that’s fine. This is not an easy magic button solution to sourcing leads. There isn’t one and getting responsive leads means “walking the talk” for a period of time before the rewards come.
Like Facebook, you are putting yourself among prospective leads and creating a relationship. The better your followers get to know you the more powerful your position of trust becomes. Hope that makes sense. I know several internet network marketers who are already “killing” it using this platform using the delayed gratification mindset.
