Pinterest Review

I learned about Pinterest from Wealthy Affiliate University. I immediately requested an invite and after waiting for some days, I was in. I've been using it for quite some time now so I want to share my own Pinterest review.

The Interface

Pinterest's interface is different from those common social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Google +. When you're inside, you can see photos and videos pinned by users from websites. You can then like or repin those photos if you are also interested with them. If you like to communicate with the pinner, you can even add some comments.

Setting Up Your Profile

After receiving an invite from someone or from Pinterest itself, you can now set up account using your email address. You can also just link your Facebook or Twitter account to set up your profile. After that, you can then create your own Boards where you can pin those photos and videos from any website you're interested with. There are pre-made boards such as My Style, Places I'd Like to Go, People I Admire, Dream Home, and others but you can always change them or create your own. Since I use Pinterest for my online business, most of my boards are based on my websites.

Installing the Pin

For you to be able to pin some photos and videos, you have to install the Pinterest pin in your browser. There's a video tutorial inside Pinterest on how to do that so just watch that and follow it.

Uses of Pinterest

1. Personal Social Network

Pinterest can be used as a personal social network on top of Facebook, Twitter, and Google +. You can pin whatever photos and videos from the websites you like and interact with others' pins as well. Of course, you can use it to met some new friends too!

2. For Business

I think this is where Pinterest can really be useful. Many website owners, etsy members, ebay sellers, and other internet marketers are now using Pinterest to do some business. When you pin the photo or video of your website content, it can go viral and you can attract lots of visitors to your site. This is a great way to gain more customers!

Aside from traffic, you can also use Pinterest for SEO purposes. The pins you place there serve as do follow backlinks to your site. They can contribute to making your site rank well in the search engines.

When you are not yet a member of Pinterest, you can request for an invite from someone you know who is already there. This new social network is really useful for internet marketers and consumers alike. Thanks to the developers of this additional social media that is really useful in online marketing and any internet related business!

Good straightforward review of Pinterest. I just wonder about the duplicate content / plagarism issues I read about with Pinterest i.e. people's content being pinned without permission. Not sure if this is a problem or not.

Gret article. I got experience of the viral thing last week. Pinned a pic of a cat from a friend's site and it got 200 + repins in 48 hours!
