Are you interested in taking advantage of Pinterest as one of your small business’ social media marketing tools? If you’re already there, terrific. If not, you’ve got a lot of catching up to do!
Hands down, Pinterest is one of my absolute favorite content sharing services of all time. It’s a great place for visual people to share their favorite things and discover new events, interests, and hobbies. Also, the latest feature allows users to create Places pinboards that prove to be very handy when planning a vacation, creating a city guide, or saving your must-see spots for your future world traveling endeavors.
Speaking of Place boards, this feature releases a world of opportunities for small businesses located all throughout the world. For example, small businesses can leverage Place boards as city tour guides to bring new customers to the area and hopefully into their own store(s).
Here are some of my favorite must-follow Pinterest accounts for the latest marketing information and tips.
