The Rapid Rise of Pinterest's Blockbuster User Engagement [CHART]

The Rapid Rise of Pinterest's Blockbuster User Engagement [CHART] | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

This piece (user chart included) was written and posted by Matt Silverman, contributing editor for Mashable, .

 

My commentary (I'm personally experiencing amazing results after being on Pinterest for about 4 months).

 

****Even with all the hooplah surrounding Pinterest, it's important to remember, that Pinterest is only a side dish in your business, paying attention to your main course and how Pinterest supports that is what is key. See article here: http://bit.ly/yXET4P by John Jantsch.

 

Having said that...........

 

This user engagement chart is astounding, as you see the rise in Pinterest users in a very short time.

 

**In my opinion, Pinterest gives you the opportunity to showcase your work without a lot of text anything that gives us a breather in that way is a blessing.

 

**Images speak a thousand words if you know how to use them properly.

 

**Showing other sides of you that are consistent with your brand message gives people a chance to see you beyond the text you post on other sites.

 

**Pinboards like favorite books, homes and spaces, etc. give people points of entry, a connection with you because they identify and like the same things, a great way to start a conversation, have them look to see what you do and who you are.

 

**Everything we do online tells a story about us, it's our digital identity, Pinterest is a place where you can tell your story in a whole different way.

 

**Pinterest is also a place where you can relax, fantasize about the wardrope you'd love to have, or the amazing car or cars you want to have. Let's face it, we're all plugged in 24/7, this is a place where you can lighten up and/or market your business all on the same site.

 

**Pinterest is not only gaining a ton of users, but those users are spending an average of 89 minutes on the site

 

** Facebook is still leading by 405 minutes along with Tumblr also 89 minutes but it's obvious Pinterest is moving up quickly.

 

**It's important to know how to use Pinterest to showcase what you do in a subtle but engaging way

 

Feel free to visit my topic "Pinterest Watch"  a collection of articles from branding, case studies, metrics all in one place.

Here's A Content Marketing Plan That Delivers Results! [Infographic included]

Here's A Content Marketing Plan That Delivers Results! [Infographic included] | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

I selected this piece was written by Chris Sietsema for convinceandconvert blog because the post plus the infographic lays out a very clear and concise plan to create your content marketing strategy.

 

**Whether you're creating or curating content, this is something I think is very useful. This is why I rescooped this from my content marketing, social media and beyond  topic.

 

Here are a few highlights from the article:

 

He compares selecting and producing content to what he calls "bricks" and "feathers".

 

Bricks are referred to as research reports

 

**are larger content productions such as research reports, events, white papers        .

    video series, mobile apps, etc

 

**have the potential to make a larger splash when executed and promoted correctly.

 

Feathers are comprised of simple text and photo content published via popular social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, etc.

 

**Less intensive than bricks from a production budget standpoint, feathers are created consistently to maintain an ongoing stream of communication between a brand and its audience.

 

The infographic shows you how to discern what content to use and illustrates the how, what, why and when to use it.

I like this analogy/metaphor. It is easy and quick to make feathers from your bricks, but the bricks take time. Can a curated collection of feathers be made into a brick? :-)
janlgordon's comment, February 26, 2012 1:10 PM
Beth Kanter
I'm glad you liked the article! I love your question, I do think a curated collection of feathers around a particular theme can be turned into a brick. What comes to mind, if you're distilling the comments from the posts (feathers) it's possible that this could evolve into a (brick) research reports, white papers, the possibilities are endless:-)
Beth Kanter's comment, February 26, 2012 1:23 PM
What comes to mind is that a smashed brick is a lot of feathers .. and that you can lead them back to the brick ... for example, I work with some advocacy folks who have these huge bricks called policy papers. They could tweet key points w/links back to the papers on Twitter. Have them cued up for a month in advance .. as you say the techniques are endless .. What I found most helpful was the objectives and metrics ..

Study Shows Women Are Smarter Than Men About Social Media

Study Shows Women Are Smarter Than Men About Social Media | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it
When it comes to managing their social media profiles, women, on average, behave more like mature, responsible adults while men act like impulsive adolescents.

 

Are we really surprised? Yet, only 10-15% of women are in positions of power and decision making in large social networks. Something wrong with that picture don't you think?

While the stragglers sit still trying to figure it out, the smart brands have evolved into social brands. However, while the social brands sit patting themselves on the back for their innovation, the really smart brands are busy building engaged communities from inside out. These wise businesses are starting to understand that they need to operationalize their social media functions internally. Realizing that if they want to become social businesses, these brands have decided they need to start tearing down silos and engaging employees.

Are you being asked to prove the value of social media for your business?

 

Do you struggle to accurately measure the return on investment (ROI) of your social media marketing?

 

You’re not alone. Several new research studies reveal that marketing managers are under increased pressure to show measurable results from their social media efforts.

 

But these same managers indicate that measuring the returns is one of their top two challenges for 2012.

The Bro’s Guide To Pinterest

The Bro’s Guide To Pinterest | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Pinterest is the social media plateform where, not to be or not to be on the right way can make the difference for those who want to use this platform for their business. This guide should support you in your approach. [note mg]

 

Just because Pinterest is a female-dominated network doesn't mean men don't fit in. In this post, learn how to leverage this network as a male user or male-focused brand.

 

Pinterest’s popularity has exploded in the past few months. Their traffic and user base has grown exponentially, bringing it to the attention of marketers around the world.


One of the most unique factors of Pinterest is the fact that its user demographic is made up mostly of women. This key factor has forced many male-oriented brands to rethink their marketing strategy if they want to leverage this social network.

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to let your scoop.it content to reach more people and to get discovered by those who are not yet aware of you, the new Pinterest integration in Scoop.it should certainly be a welcome addition.

 

With this new addition, not only you can share your curated stories inside your Scoop.it newsradar with your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Wordpress friends, but you can also "pin" selected ones to create alternative "collections" on Pinterest.

One potentially good approach is the one of leveraging Pinterest to do what Scoop.it is not (yet) so good at. For example, after you have been curating a newsradar for a while, you can easily create "greatest hits" collections out of the best ones, or sub-thematic digests on specific topics, and Pinterest is a perfect tool to do that.

In essence you can "re-curate" your own curated news, in alternative ways which take advantage of Pinterest strength in building "visual collections" rather than news channels.
