Have you heard of Pinterest? It has become one of the fastest growing social media sites. In a nutshell, it is an online visual bookmaking site but, if approached in a certain way, it can be a very powerful tool. I’m here to teach you all about it.
For businesses, website owners and bloggers
Pinterest has been reported to be a great source of traffic. In Sept 2012 Shareaholic reported ”In the month of August (2012), Pinterest sent more traffic than Yahoo organic traffic and is now the fourth largest traffic source in the world.“
Want to increase your traffic? You should learn to use Pinterest.
For personal use
All work and no play is no fun, even CEOs have hobbys. Pinterest is a great source of inspiration and information. You can find and pin (organize) links to almost anything. Here are just a couple of examples…
-Like to cook or craft? Links to recipes and how to’s are some of the most popular categories on Pinterest.
-Researching a big purchase or planning a remodeling project? You can use Pinterest to help you with that too.

Not only will you’ll find the tactical steps to having success with Pinterest, you’ll also see how people are using the inspiration and information found on Pinterest in their lives and in their careers. The motto here is, don’t just pin it, do it!
What that means is don’t let the time you spend on Pinterest be wasted. Pin things that really help or inspire you and do something with them! Make that recipe, travel to that place, share the joke or just be inspired to try something different. The point is to use your pins not just collect them.
For businesses, this means do more for your followers than just posting the same images that can be found on your website. Make your account interesting and useful, interact with your followers.
Hello, my name is Cynthia and I am addicted to Pinterest. Glad to get that off my chest!
I use Pinterest on multiple mobile devices and on my desktop computer. It has changed my life. I’ve made several recipes, craft projects and made purchases all inspired by Pinterest pins. I ‘ve even launched a business because of it!
I enjoy teaching and helping people find solutions. This may come from my years of being a registered nurse or from being the mother of 2 sets of twins. It’s probably both.
For fun, aside from using Pinterest, I enjoy travelling with my family, crafting, learning photography and blogging.
