Pinterest has quickly become a leader in social media with millions of visitors to the site. Pinterest is a unique approach to social media in that it allows users to “pin” images from websites as well as videos. Think of it as Twitter with a posts wall.
Now the more important question: Do you as a business need Pinterest? We would definitely recommend it. The more links pointing to your website the better. And because it’s free, and many people are using it, it’s a great way to gain traffic to your site.
Initially, Pinterest was mostly recipes, wedding photos, and gardening centered (at least those were the majority of the posts), but the types of posts and users has grown.
So if you don’t have Pinterest, request a free account and get started today.
