In a couple of decades, managements who have overpaid for acquisitions, over- promised to City investors and failed to recognise the threat and opportunity of the Internet have come close to destroying an industry.

Pinterest: Everything You Need to Know About the Hottest Niche Site [INFOGRAPHIC]

Pinterest: Everything You Need to Know About the Hottest Niche Site [INFOGRAPHIC] | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

I rescooped this from my topic Pinterest Watch, because I feel this infographic really gives you some insight into what's really happening on Pinterest and it's definitely something I want to bring to your attention.

 

If it makes sense, this site is a great mix in your marketing efforts. Niche sites, especially ones that are visual with less text are becoming more popular everyday and Pinterest is definitely leading the way. Take a quick look at what's happening.......

 

Intro:

 

"How fast is Pinterest growing? How many people work there? This infographic lays it out.

 

**Pinterest has emerged as the runaway social media hit of early 2012. You probably knew that already. But did you know the company just has 12 people? Or that 97% of Pinterest’s Facebook fans are women?

 

**Lemon.ly, a visual marketing firm, took a deep dive into the data to catalog Pinterest’s stunning rise and produced the infographic below.

 

**What’s clear is that with 10 million users, Pinterest has already made its mark in terms of web design influence, if nothing else.

How Do You Take to 'Social' out of Social Media in Jury Trials? - Wall Street Journal (blog)

How Do You Take to 'Social' out of Social Media in Jury Trials? - Wall Street Journal (blog) | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

The rules have always been pretty straightforward: jurors aren’t allowed to do their own research and they shouldn’t communicate about the case they are hearing.

But those seemingly simple instructions have gotten far more complicated in recent years, as the use of smartphones has exploded and the use of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have become increasingly second nature.

Pinterest and Scoopit a Powerful Combination!

This is a post after my own heart, brought to my attention by gdecugis, thanks Guillaume, you know I love Scoopit, glad to spread the word about this winning duo, Pinterest and Scoopit.

 

Feel free to visit my other topic, Pinterest Watch to learn more about this social network

 

Here's my commentary based on my experience of using Scoopit and Pinterest

 

To me, Pinterest and Scoopit go hand and hand. They are both visual and it's important to consider if you're on Scoopit already or thinking about it, expressing yourself on both platforms, (if it makes sense for your business) because it can be very powerful. 

 

Here are some of the reasons it can help your business:

 

Scoopit is a platform that showcases your expertise, share your hobbies and other interests through content in a beautiful format. It is part of your online personna and it's a vibrant community I have met some wonderful people here.

 

Pinterest is also a community with some of the same people from Scoopit and many others, (new people are joining everyday). Linking your posts from Scoopit to your pins on Pinterest not only drives traffic to your scoopit site and visa versa but those people can see another side of you that you can't express there.

 

Pinterest is like a delicious menu of visuals that captivate and attract people to you. I have put all my business boards at the top and my interest boards underneath them.

 

Pinterest gives people the ability to see who you are beyond your posts. If you're a brand, this is where you can create an online story of text and visuals that gives consumers points of entry through common interests. It's a brilliant way to do business.

 

I could go on and on but I'll let you see for yourself how I've combined Scoopit and Pinterest together which continues to produce unbelievable results, increase in traffic and brand new relationships from both sites.

Thanks so much Robin, I appreciate it!
Otir's comment, February 25, 2012 11:25 AM
Great insight, thank you! In the constant stream of innovations - sometimes fads too - it is comforting to find complete write-ups that give enough "meat" to what is going on online, and why some tools get traction.
Beth Kanter's comment, February 25, 2012 1:32 PM
Jan, thanks for bringing G's post to our attention. I'm excited about the combination of the two tools like you are! And thanks for including me in your collection!
