How to Setup Your Brand New Pinterest Business Page | Jeffbullas's Blog

How to Setup Your Brand New Pinterest Business Page | Jeffbullas's Blog | BI Revolution | Scoop.it
Pinterest is booming. The site grew to 26.7 million unique visitors last month. This rapid growth has drawn businesses, especially retailers, to expand their presence on the site. Pinterest has just announced Pinterest pages for business.

 

My, those folks over at Pinterest have been busy! In the space of a few short weeks, users have been surprised by 3 new rollouts – verification of Pinterest accounts, the introduction of secret boards and now, the ability to create business pages.


So what does this new update mean for business owners? After all, it was not too long ago that Pinterest was warning us about self-promotion and commercial usage was downright prohibited.
Nevertheless, thousands of businesses have flocked to Pinterest since its inception in 2009 to create accounts and drive brand awareness in the hope of boosting sales.


Perhaps Pinterest has finally acknowledged that it’s time to woo the business community right before the crucial holiday season? Or maybe it’s testing the water for its monetization plans?...

 

[This is a positive development for marketers with one caveat. Watch for the terms of reference. Pinterest owns all material posted; not always the right situation for every business. ~ Jeff]

This piece was posted by Loren Sorenson for Hubspot, I selected it because as she says "If you aren’t prepared for the visual content revolution, you may be left in the dust.


Not convinced? Let's take a look at exactly how visual contentis positively contributing to marketing strategies -- it may just give you the push you need


"Learn why visual content is a critical part of your content creation strategy.

**83% of learning is visual


Condenses and Explains Large Amounts of Information


**Today, there is too much information on the Internet you have about 3 seconds to catch someone’s eyes so they'll consume your information.


Gives Your Brand an Identity


**Visual content draws people in, letting viewers better understand your brand's identity

Find Out Who Is Pinning You

Find Out Who Is Pinning You | BI Revolution | Scoop.it
**** A new kind of business intelligence, valuable, immediate and telling. I've always wanted to find a way to find Gladwell's Mavens, Connectors and Salespeople. Not all people are the same, but what a great, creative way to find a new kind of BI. Thanks Robin - Marty

Robin Good: If you are trying to better understand what your fans, readers and customers like and appreciate from you the most, you may want to start considering Pinterest as a resource for valuable insight on this front.

It is quite easy in fact to discover "who is pinning you" by simply changing in this URL, the "sitename.com" with your site domain:

 http://pinterest.com/source/sitedomain.com/ 


That's all there is to it.


Go and try it out yourself.

Pinterest And SEO: Its A Good Thing

Pinterest And SEO: Its A Good Thing | BI Revolution | Scoop.it

Guest post from 29 May 2012: in short Pinterest presence is good for SEO because of content, backlinks and social indicators

***** Great Scoop by Therese and I love her summary, but saying "content, backlinks and social indicators" is like saying all there is to the NY City marathon is running :). There is some PAIN involved too and this article helps understand how to train the pain.
