Just when I thought Pinterest was for making me look cool and interesting, I find out I can actually justify my pinning time as being a social activity that might just boost business! Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized Pinterest is a tool for my social media role at Markit Motion!
Up until now, Pinterest has been my virtual bullet board. I pin pleasing, inspiring and delightful images, giving credit to the photographers, and an elbow and nod to those I follow. Together we follow one another down rabbit holes of shiny object delight daily. I post and pin and pin and post.
Pinterest is wonderful world of sharing our great taste without exposing any of our less "Pin-able" habits and guilty pleasures. If Facebook is the reader board of life, then Pinterest is the movie trailer. Complete with stylists and photographers. WAIT! I'll have to start a new board of who would play me and my friends and family next! Yikes, there's another shiny object. O.K. back to what I came here to post about.
Because getting social is part of my new role with Markit, I am constantly trying to keep up with the ever-changing web world. When I find an interesting article, I'll post it here. Today, I thought I'd share a great post about how business could use Pinterest. I'm excited to add these steps to my social cycle.
