Pinterest for business. Sounds crazy, no?

Pinterest for business. Sounds crazy, no? But in our world of social media, every one of us is a pinner trying to gain the attention of our audience. It isn’t easy. You may ask, why do we do try if it’s another social platform to contend with? We do it because social media is our medium. And how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you in one word: Vision!

When I was looking for a way into introducing my new article on Social Media Examiner, 26 Tips to Make Pinterest Work for Your Business, I kept hearing the opening lines of Fiddler on the Roof in my head. Sounds crazy, no? And so, the paragraph above is a play on it. Some time ago, when I first started thinking about Pinterest, I did think it was a bit crazy at first. Granted it was fun, cool, a new shiny object. But could we make Pinterest work for business?

That was my guiding question as I set out to write the Pinterest article. More than ever, I see the very valuable role Pinterest can play in social media marketing. And, I hope you will, too.

If you found your way to my blog as a result of the SME article, welcome and thanks for stopping by!

The post also includes a Q&A with Kelly Lieberman who has spent considerable time taking a look at brands and Pinterest.
