Use Pinterest to boost your Internet Marketing

07/21/12, 6:57 AM

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

However it can also be used as another tool to assist in boosting your Internet marketing. Here's how:


When a Pinterest member joins they have the option of adding a “pin-it” bookmarklet to their tool bar. This way they are able to add pins to their boards without being on the site. The bookmarket allows users to grab any image from a website and attach it to their pinterest boards. This way anytime someone pins something from your site you automatically gain potential new viewers. The point is that people trust their friends the most. So if you get one viewer to like your product your presence grows to all of their followers as well.

“Pin-It” button for websites

Facebook has “like it,” Google has “+1” it, Twitter has “tweet it,” and Pinterest has “pin-it.” Just like the other platforms Pinterest allows you to add a pin-it button directly to your website. The button can be placed next to multiple images on your website so that viewers can pin items to their boards directly from the website. Check out our example by clicking here.

Pinterest is still in an invitation only period so I would recommend requesting an invitation from their site or finding a friend that would be willing to invite you to it. To get started, request an invite.
