Have you been wondering what the fuss is about?
Why use Pinterest? Is it worth the time?
In a word – maybe! Depending on your target audience, you could be missing out on phenomenal traffic from Pinterest. A friend just shared with me that a single pin is bringing 1,000 views a day to one blog post – about creating beads. Pinterest is driving traffic to craft, food, and retail sites.
But that’s not all! Pinterest is great for business-to-business sites too. I also get traffic from Pinterest – and I spend virtually no time on the site. I really don’t have time for any new social networks, do you? But you can easily add the Pinterest Pin-It button to your blog posts. Because Pinterest is the hottest of the social bookmark websites, people will pin your posts, given the slightest opportunity. And the pinned images link back to your website!
