Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
Business using Pinterest
Scotty's Brewhouse uses pinterest to their advantage by keeping it simple, connecting with their physical presence with their online presence, and my favorite, launching a daily pin theme. Their are so many advantages businesses are missing out on by not using pinterest.
What's the Fascination?
Pinterest had an estimated 3.3 million unique visitors in
the month of October. While there's no mechanism for potential
customers to buy your products directly from the site, consider the
marketing potential: Popular images (with links back to the original
source) can get repinned on hundreds of other users' boards.
