Pinterest is My Newest Interest – Written for tba | PR + Advertising

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Carolyn Kiser, one of my fellow co-workers, introduced me to the wonderful world of Pinterest.

Pinterest is one of my newest online addictions. If you are not familiar with this site, it is basically several online inspiration boards for whatever you want to keep track of. This easy-to-use, visually appealing site allows you to name your “boards” and “pin” websites that inspire you with  ideas, favorite quotes, fashion, recipes, DIY projects and so on.

Here’s mine:

So why is Pinterest so great and what’s the big deal?

If you are a visual person like me, you know what I’m talking about. This site enables you to weed through all of the nonsense on the Internet and provides  a way to see only the best of the best and choose what you want to track.

It is a great way to help make decisions, plan events and generate ideas. Of course, the iPhone app is pretty cool too!

Businesses and individuals alike should take an interest in Pinterest. In particular, if you are a retail business. If you have an online shopping cart or online products page on your website, you are able to put a “pin-it” button, which is a great way to promote buzz about your company and products. Pinterest also allows you to monitor what others are posting from your company site.

If you are interested in getting an invite to Pinterest or learning more about how to get others talking about your company, contact us and we will be happy to discuss this further.
