Pintrest. What is everyone getting so excited about? Well if you are a visual person, it’s a veritable smorgasbord of beautiful imagery and ideas all in one place. You can find inspiration and share ideas around style, cooking, weddings, decor, design, animals – almost anything that is graphically/photographically depicted.
Is the hype justified? New data released for January 2012 illuminates that Pinterest now drives more referral traffic than Google+, YouTube, and LinkedIn combined! Also recent data released by comScore and Hitwise shows that Pinterest traffic is soaring.
To get started, we found a step-by-step tutorial for nonprofits.
If you’re interested in what people are actually pinning on Pintrest – look here… it might give you some ideas.
Please be aware though – there are legal considerations you need to be aware of when you are pinning anyone else’s work. You have to credit the source and you have to refer traffic back to their site.
Why not check out our new Pintrest board too where we share infographics, good web design, charity info, a coveted lunch menu and stuff to make you laugh.
