We’ve been pretty obsessed with Pinterest around here. It’s just so much fun to collect more and more pins!
And with Pinterest generating more traffic to websites than Bing, it’s a social media power house
I started looking at the top pinners and noticed how many pinboards they have…some with hundreds and hundreds of pins!
Indeed, my pin board “Yum” is full of recipes I would love to make. But if there a hundred or so…how would I ever make them all…or even find the one I wanted?
It began to remind me of newspapers hoarders sometimes collect with the rationale, “I’ll read them later.”

Quick Tips on Using Pinterest for Business
We’re putting together some in-depth information about using Pinterest for business, but until then here are some quick tips:
- Caption your pins with a link to your website and a strong call to action prompting viewers to visit.
- If your pin is your content, be sure to edit the pins so that the image links back to your website.
- Mix your original pins with repins other people’s pins so that your boards have a curated feel–no one likes a Pinterest user who appears to be exclusively using Pinterest for promotion.
- Longer pins get more click-through, so don’t shy away from creating pins with more vertical space.
- Pinterest isn’t just for fashion products. Realtors, personal trainers, and many other industries are seeing great results from Pinterest!
