Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak calls Pinterest, the wildly popular social media tool, “digital crack for women.”
She’s addicted to it. So are millions of other women. (The guys are finally catching on.)
And it’s time for Publicity Hounds everywhere to use this site to pull traffic. Pinterest, a digital pinboard that lets you “pin” photos and videos, has reached the 10-million-user mark faster than any other social media site.
Best part is, you don’t have to spend a ton of time on it. Just “pin” photos you love. But understand that this site is more than just stunning images of cupcakes and wedding dresses.
If you’re smart, you can use it to pull traffic back to your website or blog.
The photo of the green candy necklace, shown above, leads back to the website of Kinser Event Company which, presumably, will help you host a creative party for your child.
Look at this colorful board called “Give Books” created by a book publishing company.
Those are just two of the many examples I’ll be sharing when I host the webinar “How to Use Pinterest to Generate Clicks, Traffic, Links, Leads and Sales” at 3 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, March 15.
