I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it is an informative piece on how to successfully leverage Pinterest to drive more subscribers and leads for your business.

 

A well-planned strategy with pins and boards can help produce more growth for your website.

 

How to Use Pinterest to Increase Your Traffic

 

In many target markets audiences are drawn to visual posts. I agree that Pinterest is a popular platform that is loaded with link building opportunities.

 

Gilbert shows you how to strategize your pins and encourage users to click your links. By making a few adjustments your content can continuously grow your website.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Pinterest helps your brand to build a strong community with boards that appeal to your audience's interests. As they go to your website and share your pins your content attracts new leads.

 

  • Pins have longevity -- even after posting several months ago users make comments and re-pins. This means you always have your content and links circulating.

 

  • When users search for topics this can also help bring them to your website. Choosing the right keywords for you pins will improve this process.

Is Your Company A Social Media SNOB? Take Our You Know Your A Social Media Snob If...Test

Is Your Company A Social Media SNOB? Take Our You Know Your A Social Media Snob If...Test | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Social Media Snob Test
The purpose of social media is to connect, to BE SOCIAL. Better to NOT be on social media than to be on social and look like an arrogant snob. Not being on social can be forgiven. Being a snob in this day an age is difficult to forgie.

You Know Your Company Is A Social Media Snob If...

* You follow less than 50% of your Twitter followers.
- Following a tiny % of your followers is the ultimate snobbery because it limits communication (you can't DM unless you follow) and you can't REWARD unless you follow. 
- When an expert in your area with 10x the following as your company has (at the moment) follows you FOLLOW THEM BACK!!

* You company doesn't Retweet.
- When you Retweet you share someone's take. You are saying, "this is good enough to share" and that statement is a reward and and a way to "mentor" your space.

* Your company doesn't respond to @yourcompany notes.
- Not responding in a timely way to @yourcompany notes is an EPIC customer service fail.

* Your company isn't on GPlus.
- Time to come in for the big win AND Gplus is the most disruptive social net because of its proximity to high yield SEO (duy its GOOGLE) and most business verticals are nascent on GPlus because there is a learning curve.

* Your company isn't having conversations.
- If you are still using social media to push messages without listening and responding you look either clueless or a snob (and neither of those are good).

* Your Company isn't on Instagram or Pinterest.
- Marketing communication is becoming highly visual so to not be on either Instragram or Pinterest is snobby since it feels like insisting we continue to do things the old "talk about ourselves to ourselves" way. 

* Your company isn't creating video.
- Video is highly widget-ized and so easy to share content. Video is also a more universal language. I may not speak english but video, done right, can be a cross cultural tool.  


* Your company[s SMM is highly scripted.
- Days of scripting every interaction with customers is long gone.  

Don't be a social media snob either by intention or ignorance because being a SNOB on social media is the wrong signal to send...always.

Some great Business 2 Community analysis on Pinterest in 2014. Visual marketing is exploding and Pinterest sits in the middle of that wave. Here are my favorite predictions from the list of 9:

Men Still Wont Get Pinterest.
Pinterest API is released. 

Trademark crack down as ads ramp (was inevitable and once  brands are paying big bucks they will demand Pinterest police the ecosystem better).

Shareholic reports that Pinterest is second only to Facebook when it comes to driving referral traffic. The lifespan of a pin is the longest of any social media post, which is why it’s important to manage your Pinterest account to your best advantage.
