Are Fewer People on Pinterest?
Back in January 2012 and through the beginning of March 2012 there was an explosion in free media attention surrounding the social media site Pinterest. All of this interest drove a large amount of first time visitors to the Pinterest site.
After this media coverage there was an explosion in traffic that peaked in March. Now it would seem that Pinterest is actually starting to lose users. At least in comparison to March it is clear that April has seen fewer people spending much less time on Pinterest. Read more…

Have you noticed when looking at your boards on Pinterest that the the largest pinned picture has always been the last pin that was pinned for that particular board? Today, April 5th, Pinterest has updated their website with a minor upgrade that now allows a user to select which pin will be displayed as the board cover.
With so many new people joining Pinterest over the last few months there are from time to time emails, posts, messages, or other happenings that newer users may not understand. One of the most common questions people new to Pinterest have is why they are getting an email or emails saying that some person has “categorized” one of their boards. Does the text from this email sound familiar?
Hi [Your Name],
Your pinboard ‘Name of a Board You Have‘ was categorized by Some Person you May or May Not Know as belonging to ‘Category Name‘.

Very few people that spent much time on the Internet over the last few months have been able to avoid the new social media site Pinterest. Not even a year old, Pinterest has touched a nerve with the public, and for sure has attracted a dedicated female base. Just looking at some of the popular “pins” on Pinterest proves that brides, mother of the brides, maid of honors, and friends of the bride have for sure found the benefits of having a Pinterest account.
For those that might not be fully aware of what Pinterest is, think of the it as a large bulletin board in which a person can pin pictures of things that they find interesting. The difference is that with Pinterest the pictures that a member pins to their bulletin board can be shared with the entire community. As many previous and future brides have discovered a Pinterest account can be very handy. Pinning cakes, decorations, dresses, hair styles, announcement pictures, invitations, and hundreds of other wedding related items can help inform planners, friends, and others about the styles of wedding planning that interests the bride. So how to get started? Read more…
Pinterest the fastest growing website in history has an advantage for website marketing that a number of other sites do not have. That advantage is that with compelling pictures future customers are only a couple of clicks away from purchasing from you or your clients. Reducing the amount of clicks that possible customers have to complete in order to convert as a qualified lead or to make a purchase places Pinterest in the “must do” category on a social media marketing professional’s to-do list.
Because future customers are actually clicking on pictures of your products or services marketers can expect higher conversion rates and drastically reduce the time of the sales cycle. There is little chance that larger companies with in house SEO or Social Media Professionals are not already making their presence felt on Pinterest. This means that if you or your clients have not started yet with a Pinterest strategy then perhaps the below points of interest can persuade an expedited buy in. Read more…

No one needs to tell most people right now what Pinterest is. In fact the site is growing so fast that there are a few growing pains being experienced. One of the primary complaints leveled against Pinterest so far has been that the site allows for the use of copyrighted images to be published without the owner’s permission. This is not really a unique issue for just Pinterest because many sites are publishing copyrighted images without permission. Sites such as Facebook, Google Plus, and even personal blogs are all using material owned by other people. Read more…
