Daily Dose – Social Media Tip of the Day – Use Pinterest in your marketing plan
Yesterday’s post introduced you to the fastest growing social networking site, Pinterest.
Now that you’ve checked it out, requested an invite and signed up, I will share just a few ways you can use Pinterest to promote your business or nonprofit.
2) Nonprofits can share compelling photos that highlight their mission – pictures of the environment, animals, nature, children, families, community, education.
3) Businesses can share interesting photos of their office, workspace, storefront, and the work that they are doing. Architects can post photos of their work and work they admire, vacation travel agents can post photos of great getaways and travel packages, real estate agents can post photos of houses, writers can post photos of books they want to read – the possibilities are endless!
4) As with all social media, if you are primarily using Pinterest for self-promotion you will not gain followers and no one will pay attention. Constant self-promotion leaves a bad taste in people’s mouths. Be authentic, be interesting, be genuine and be creative!
