How to Get Pinterest Smart Growth: Best Pinning Time and Tips | All Infographics | Pinterest All-in-One | Scoop.it

Infographics on getting smart success from Pinterest by posting on perfect time by posting Pins and RePins from best social media marketing tool to instant traffic

Mike Macey's insight:

I cannot confirm or deny these times.  I do know that your analytics of current engagement will dictate when to post.  I would consider Pinerly a reliable resource because of their own analytics but this Infographic was made in 2012. 

Infographics are a great guideline but use common sense, gut feeling, and trust your own analytics.

6 ways to be a Pinterest superstar (single page view) - iMediaConnection.com | Pinterest All-in-One | Scoop.it

The launch of another social community can often cause brands to flock around it like pigeons to a breadcrumb. They want to know the next new thing and feel they must "be there" in order to be relevant.


But Pinterest isn't just another social community. It's an inspiration hub.


Pinterest brings the fun of window shopping, watching an episode of "House Hunters," and flipping through a travel magazine all into one experience. So it's no wonder the average time spent there is over an hour per visit.


Pinterest is aspirational. While Facebook is all about me -- where I am and what I'm doing -- Pinterest is the place where we can share who we want to be, what we want to do, or where we want to go. Those are powerful insights that brands can leverage.


We recently completed a study on human sociability -- called Project Butterfly -- to understand what makes people truly sociable and what brands can learn from those behaviors. One of the most notable markers of sociable people is that they're not only interesting people -- they're interested in others. They're listeners almost as much as they are conversationalists. It's this notion of being both interesting and interested, combined with the fact that people are using Pinterest to imagine, that can lead to smarter and more valuable uses for Pinterest.


Consider these 6 opportunities that your brand might be overlooking.

WWD Women's Wear Daily, Friday, June 8, 2012

By Erik Maza


TIMING PINTEREST: Even the New York Times is on Pinterest now. On its profile, it has boards dedicated to hair, summer escapes and crunchy food. Among the future boards it’s considering are “Sizzling, Dripping, Melting and Splashing;” “High Tech High Fashion;” and, simply, “Kitchens.” The profile was inevitable. Since its launch two years ago, the photo-sharing social network has become a one-stop shop for design and food porn for a massive, easily distracted readership.
