Did you know that Pinterest is one of the fastest-growing social
networking sites in history?

Surpassing even Facebook and Twitter in terms of rapid growth, with
its user base of over 10 million people spending an average of an hour
or more a day pinning, repining and sharing images.

Even though it's only been around for a short time this extremely
popular image-based network is quickly changing the face of social
media and there is no doubt that it can be both fun and beneficial from
business standpoint.

As the fastest growing social network site, Pinterest has and almost
addictive visual appeal to consumers, making it an excellent platform
for promoting brand awareness, products and services in a wide
variety of markets such as DIY, sports, crafts, fashion, foods, and many
more.

On Pinterest users, referred to as "pinner's" can easily pin images and
photos from the Internet, their computers, smart phones and from inside
the Pinterest network to their own pinboard's with a simple click or two.

There are several ways that you can make your Pinterest marketing
efforts more effective, for instance;

You can link your Pinterest account with your Twitter and/or Facebook
account during registration, making sharing on multiple social networks
more convenient and fun.

You can display photos and digital images of your business logo,
products and services to drive more traffic and sales. You can also pin
audio's and videos to create a more interactive experience for your
followers.

Be sure that you share other people's images frequently. The Pinterest
platform makes sharing quick and easy. Their built-in system ensures
that when you repin an image, the user who first pinned it will also get
credit. Repin’s always maintain the source-link of the image no matter
how many times it’s repined and by incorporating hash tags, links, and
embeds you will always get credited when other users repin your
image, which makes this network an amazing viral marketing tool!

Pinterest also provides other share-ability features such as; Connect,
Like, Comment and Embed that not only help you share your pins, it
helps with search engine optimization as well.

Not only is pinning simple it can be integrated to your website by
placing a Pinterest “Follow” or “Pinit” button on your website or blog,
making it easy for pinner’s to pin images directly from your site and
spread your message.

You can grow your popularity by joining and following interest groups,
commenting on other peoples pins and by posting new images to your
boards regularly.

Just like with any other type of social network marketing your business
will get out of it whatever they decide to put into it. since Pinterest isStill
so young you can be sure that mistakes will be made, time will be lost,
and not everyone will find the secret to using it effectively, but with a little
bit of creativity and initiative there is no doubt that savvy business
owners will be able to find plenty of ways to use Pinterest to promote
their business, products and services.
