You may have heard of Pinterest and wondered what it was and how it worked. I hear so many people talking about it and wondering how to get the best use out of the amazing site. Yes, I said AMAZING. I love Pinterest. Can you say addicted?
Let me explain a little about Pinterest:
Basically, Pinterest allows you to create a visual bookmark. You can save webpages via a picture from that site. This is amazing for tutorials, recipes, hair styles, clothing, etc. You can “pin” great ideas and be able to easily come back to them later. The video above will walk you through how to pin, how to go to pages you have already pinned and how to repin an item.
If you are a blogger, Pinterest is an amazing tool to help drive traffic to your site. Let me explain:
First, someone pins something from your site. This could be something funny, a quote, craft, recipe, etc etc etc…
Everyone that follows them will see this pin come through. If they like it, they may repin it or follow the pin to your site. So far my top day for Pinterest views was 700. This was almost all from my 2011 Tutorial of the Year, Freezer Paper Stencils. Amazing, right?
