B2B Marketing & Pinterest: 5 Tips for Becoming the Ultimate Pinner | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it

Want the skinny on using Pinterest to promote your b2b marketing? Follow these five tips and kick-start your brand’s expansion into this emerging social media phenomenon.

 

1. Advertising and infographics rule the b2b marketing pins

 

Today, B2B marketers can get tons of great examples of award winning infographics and advertising campaigns on Pinterest. For that alone it’s an amazing resource. However, for other types of marketing, well, my fellow marketers, we have some work to do. Imagine a Pinterest page filled with pins of amazing fashion, inspirational interior design, stunning landscapes, and a screenshot of your low production value product demo video…um, it’s nice you have a presence, but how does that pin of a crappy screenshot of a crappy video look next to the rest of these other magnificent pins?

7 Ways to Be a Successful Social Marketer

7 Ways to Be a Successful Social Marketer | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it

Social marketing is an advertising art that is widely utilized but less widely successful, forcing marketers who are looking for real, measurable results to hone their tactics. Review our list of seven ways to be a successful social marketer to help give you a leg up on the competition!

 

1. Build strong, targeted social media accounts.

Your social media accounts are only as useful as the friends and followers connected to them, making the first step of building those accounts absolutely crucial. Instead of simply working to obtain as many connections as possible, work instead to connect with like-minded people who are more likely to have an interest in what you have to offer.

Do Your Fans Like What You are Posting on Facebook?

Do Your Fans Like What You are Posting on Facebook? | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it
A study on Facebook learned that photos are the best type of content to draw the highest-level of engagement while links draw the least...

 

Here's just a very quick article for you that once again emphasizes that videos, photos and visuals are essential to effective storytelling on the web.

 

Of the 300 brand pages, 150,000 posts, and 700 million likes in the study, photos drew the highest amount of engagement. And if a company wants content shared, then videos were the vehicle to make that happen.

 

There's a nice infographic in the article that I'm going to pin to my Pinterest board to keep handy.

 

Think about how you want to add more photos and videos to your website and content for greater engagement!

 

And thank you fellow curator Debra Askanase @askdebra for sending me this article.

Breaking news that Pinterest is changing user submitted pins to make money. Are they now one of the biggest affiliates on the Internet?... That's the question [note MG]

 

I swore I wasn’t going to write about Pinterest again for a while after finishing a six part series of blog posts, but major developments keeping coming and no major news organizations seems to be covering them.

 

If you post a pin to Pinterest, and it links to an ecommerce site that happens to have an affiliate program, Pinterest modifies the link to add their own affiliate tracking code. If someone clicks through the picture from Pinterest and makes a purchase, Pinterest gets paid. They don’t have any disclosure of this link modification on their site, and so far, while it has been written about, no major news outlet has picked up on the practice or its implications.

 

Pinterest doing this is big news in my opinion for two reasons:
