10 Reasons Your Business Still Doesn't Use Pinterest

10 Reasons Your Business Still Doesn't Use Pinterest | Business Futures | Scoop.it
Here's our admittedly tongue in cheek list of reasons your small businesses still might not be using Pinterest. Join in the fun.

 

Recent reports suggest Pinterest is well on its way to being one of the biggest social networks ever.

 

A study last month indicates that while Facebook still maintains its domination with 67 percent of American Internet users, Twitter, the second runner up with 16 percent of the same audience, may soon be overtaken by Pinterest, which now has about 15 percent.

Charging a Credit Surcharge Will Cost You Customers

Charging a Credit Surcharge Will Cost You Customers | Business Futures | Scoop.it
In July, card issuers and banks reached a $7.25 billon settlement with merchants. As a result of the settlement, nearly seven million merchants in the U.S. will receive paid damages and lower processing interchange fees for an eight-month period. The settlement, which is viewed as a major ‘win’ for merchants, also allows merchants to surcharge the customer when they choose to pay with credit.

To surcharge or not to surcharge -– it’s the question you’ll need to answer.

Social Media Denial Common for U.S. Businesses

Social Media Denial Common for U.S. Businesses | Business Futures | Scoop.it
New research finds that 72% of businesses that use social media do not have a clear set of goals or a clear strategy for their social media platforms.

This lack of direction is happening despite the fact that 60% of Americans use some sort of social media, according to the Pew Research Center. Businesses, however, are not convinced that social media is anything more than a fad or a temporary phenomenon.

Rob Ployhart, a professor of business administration at the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business, believes that the skepticism of businesses comes directly from the fact that they have not been able to see data showing the return on investment from social media.

Pinterest Introduces Business Accounts and Tools

Pinterest Introduces Business Accounts and Tools | Business Futures | Scoop.it
Pinterest paved the way for greater business participation on Tuesday with the launch of a new set of resources designed just for them.

Companies will now be able to create business accounts, which allows them to enter just a business name — rather than a first and last — and verify their websites using a hidden line of code. Once the code has been recognized, businesses will receive a verification badge on their Pinterest profile pages. It’s not quite as good as Twitter’s profile verification — it would still be easy for someone to impersonate a company on Pinterest by verifying a URL that was similar but not owned by the brand — but it’s a start.

 13 Reasons Why Using Social Media For Business is Non Negotiable!Is there ever a time when having a social media Image presence is an option?

Robin Martin's comment, March 30, 2013 10:21 AM
Absolutely true! This should NOT be an option...this should be included in any business plan. The trick is to sell this to "the boss" or those in charge of marketing. Let's keep pushing it!
Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, April 6, 2013 5:41 PM

Agree. It's all about social media, verbally and visually.

Are Social Networks the Media Companies of the Future?

Are Social Networks the Media Companies of the Future? | Business Futures | Scoop.it

While many traditional media companies continue to struggle, business is booming for the social media industry. With millions of users updating statuses, posting photos and sharing articles, these networks have become massive content hubs.

But how do you harness the best content and use it to engage the larger user base? How can useful news and information be created — or curated — from these communities? These are questions social networks are now working to answer by hiring editorial teams and, in effect, becoming the publishers of the future.

Jessica Bennett, editorial director at Tumblr, and Daniel Roth, executive editor at LinkedIn, discuss how social networks are evolving content strategies.
