5 Ways To Pin Like A Boss On Pinterest

5 Ways To Pin Like A Boss On Pinterest | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

A decade into the social media revolution, fatigue has set in. There are lots of ways to interact, but there are still only 24 hours in a day. What social media network is still worth your time?

 

For a growing number of brands, Pinterest is making the cut. According to Cincinnati-based marketing company Ahalogy, some 22% of Americans are now monthly visitors to the site, where people pin and share pictures and articles like you might pin magazine clippings on a bulletin board. While men are starting to join, the vast majority of Pinterest users are women, and they are generally younger women. If you’re marketing fishing equipment to retired gentlemen, then this is not your medium.

 

But if you’re trying to reach Pinterest’s core users of millennial moms, here’s how to stand out....

It's official, marketing through your Facebook page is pretty much useless - The Hub | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

Digest...

 

Social media analytics platform Simply Measured compared engagement rates for Interbrand's Top 10 Facebook Pages year-over-year and the results were pretty grim. Despite their skilled social media teams, creative visuals and content producing power, the top 10 brands uniformly saw their Facebook page engagement rates decrease over last year (with the exception of Harley Davidson.)

 

And it's not that the brands haven't been trying. If anything, they've all increased their number of followers. But despite posting more, and arguably better content, their posts continue to reach a declining number of people.

Google+ Posts Are Web Pages

- Wait, what?
Unlike Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn posts, Google+ posts are indexed in the search results just like websites. More over, they can be linked to, SEO’d and acquire authority of their own just like your website. This means you can get more SERP real-estate for your own online properties and take away from your competitors!

Here’s the thing: the internet never sleeps.


Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.


And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.


And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.
