Using Pinterest to market your massage practice

Using Pinterest to market your massage practice | Massage Therapy | Scoop.it

We were talking about using social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc) to market our massage therapy practices and someone brought up the topic of using Pinterest. Now, I'll admit that I have a Pinterest page, but I haven't pinned anything yet and I'm not exactly sure how to use it to promote my business.

 

One of the participants, Sonia Hazard, is using Pinterest. She shared a link to her page, so I immediately surfed over there to take a look. Boy, was I impressed! So impressed, that I contacted her and asked if would write a blog post about how she uses Pinterest. She was kind enough to agree.
