Pinterest is the 3rd most popular social networking site on the web these days … and the importance of Pinterest is amplified in an industry like ours that is so visual in nature. Are you reaping the benefits of Pinterest? Are YOU being PINNED?
Earlier this week I introduced a new member resource: The Pinterest Tips & Resources Page. Here’s a tip I’ll be adding to that list. It’s a quick way to see if YOU are being PINNED!

So, for example, our Guest Adviser in August has been Janna Werner. (I’m sad that August is almost over! She’s shared SO much valuable info, advice & encouragement to all of us on the Ask Janna Forum!) Janna’s website URL is www.jannawerner.de.
So to see what people are pinning from Janna’s site, go to http://www.pinterest.com/source/jannawerner.de
What You Can Learn
Sure, it’s fun to check out …. But it’s a great RESOURCE too!
Find out WHAT people are pinning from your site. You’ll be surprised to see that it’s not always the things YOU think are most pin-worthy! It’s also an interesting study to read their comments — what reminders are they giving themselves about your resources? What endorsements are they giving to their followers? Which of your images have been re-pinned most? Take note of your most-pinned & repinned images and look for commonalities between them. What “best practices” from your OWN images and blog posts should you focus on mimicking in the future?
Stay tuned. We’ll have more Pinterest Tips for you! Members are invited to check out Pinterest Tips & Resources Page regularly!
