Pinterest – the next step

Most of my mornings before going to my day job are spent online researching how to make this website better.  One of the suggested strategies to get more views is to link to social media.  Connecting to Facebook and Twitter was pretty easy as I already had accounts with them.  Pinterest, however, is proving to be a challenge.

I get the concept of pinning images on a board so other people can see and share them.  Yet I couldn’t even create a board to pin to without googling for help!  I have spent the past couple of hours trying to set things up.  Hopefully I did it right.

The reason Pinterest is so important is that it is almost entirely visual.  With a majority of people shopping online now, a good  product image must be seen so that consumers can decide whether or not to buy.  Another reason is, if you have searched for something on google and clicked the images tab, a majority of the first page images are from Pinterest.

If I set things up correctly, I can now use some morning time to browse Pinterest and like things on other boards.  From what I’ve read, this can increase followers and subsequently, sales.  We’ll see what happens!

Do you have any experience with Pinterest?  I’d love to hear from you!
