If you’re a new comer, to the world of internet marketing, Pinterest is a social media site that you need to create an account on.
Pinterest is a site that newcomers can thrive on.
One Key Reason Why New Comers can Thrive on Pinterest
On Pinterest all its users can see everything.
To be successful on facebook, you need a lot of fans and/or subscribers, on Twitter and Google+ a lot of followers, on Linkedin a lot of connections and so on. On every social media you use, you first need to create a proper platform and an audience who will want to read your content or buy your products.
This can be a hard thing to achieve, especially if you are absolutely new and have no connections. This is something you don’t have to worry about on Pinterest. As I mentioned above on Pinterest people can see everything Pin.
On Pinterest, you have the “Everything,” option, using this option you can see everything on Pinterest. This means that everybody else on Pinterest who visits this section can see everything, everybody, including you, is Pining on Pinterest. Therefore, if you pin a unique and original image that can draw in a lot of attention, you could be on your way to receiving a lot of repins from people who don’t follow you, as they might see it in the “Everything” section.
If this happens and you receive a lot of “repins,” your Pin will be sent to the “Popular” section of Pinterest where it can receive a more attention which will lead to many; “repins”, “likes” and comments. As people like popular things, why do you think all those articles with many tweets, get retweeted again and again. If you can get your image to the popular section on Pinterest, this could help you create a platform and an audience on Pinterest, one of the 10 most popular social media in 2011 which continues to get more popular month after month.
