Kicking Facebook to the Curb: Why Pinterest is Good for Business

From www.steamfeed.com

Did you know: 69% of online consumers who visit Pinterest have found an item they’ve purchased or wanted to purchase? Why Pinterest is good for business.
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

Do you know that 90% of the information transmitted to the brain is visual? Actually, visual content is processed 60,000 times faster than text!

 

No wonder, then, that Pinterest is huge. In fact, last year, it even became the fastest social network in history to reach 10 million unique visitors in the US alone!

 

Not impressed by these numbers? Read Rebekah Radice’s article for more. I’m pretty sure you will get pinning after that, especially if you own a business.
