Using Pinterest for your business expands the possibilities whether you have a service based business or product based business.
I have been using “Pinterest” to create archives of interesting topics and ideas for both personal and professional use. The most helpful idea behind “Pinterest” is “pinning” ideas to a board (which you have previously created when you initially set up your account).
I love the idea of a website being displayed visually on a board (so you can clearly see what the website is about rather than just reading the words. Not all websites however can be “pinned” and there is sometimes a “Pinterest” icon (see below) to add a website to your collection of ideas.
Like many other social media platforms, you can “follow” a person, and this in turn adds their ideas to your boards.
One of the boards I am currently working on is ‘mLearning for Business“. These apps are not necessarily designed for business usage but by thinking outside the square they definitely can be used.
