I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I love Pinterest. I have pinned things like fashion, home ideas, diy ideas, party ideas and wedding ideas to my little heart’s content. I even began to feel pinned out after a while but it sucks you right back in. That is why I was happy to begin using Pinterest for work. It allows for such a wonderfully visual way for others to understand what your brand, products and techniques are.
We, as humans, like to understand things visually. No matter how analytical and engineerical (a new word) your thinking might be, you still need to see, touch and feel something to get the real grasp for what that something is and how it works. With pinterest you get to see that something in a much more robust way than working your way through a company website.
All companies thrive to have a visually appealing site, but at the end of the day you can’t just have hundreds of photographs and very minimal content, unless you are a photographer or something of the like. Well, no worries, Pinterest allows you to have your cake and eat it too. How fun is it to say, Pinterest for Business? I think it’s great and it’s a true statement. Why am I so sure? Well, my thinking got validated just a few days ago when I stumbled upon, another great site, an article that gave 7 creative ways that Pinterest can be used for business. I won’t paraphrase and take away from the article. Hence why I invite you to read it and explore the new social media platform that is hopefully here to stay!

P.S. Here are just a few of my favorite pins from my various boards:
