Pinterest E-Book Review
In November 2009, a boyhood bug collector named Ben Silbermann began building a website where people could share the things they collected online. In March 2010, he invited 5000 people to test his new site. The result? Silence. People did not rush online to sign up. In the words of the entrepreneur, “It was like stealth without us trying to be stealth.”1
Fast forward two years. In December 2011, CNET reported that Pinterest was one of the top 10 social networks, receiving more than 11 million visits per week.2 In February 2012, Mashable reported that Pinterest drove more traffic than Google+, You Tube, Reddit, LinkedIn and MySpace combined– and was virtually tied with Twitter.3
If you’re staggered by these statistics and wondering how you to put the power of Pinterest to work for you, Kim Garst’s latest book is a great place to start!
The Quick And Easy Guide To Branding Your Business And Creating Massive Sales With Pinterest is a short e-book full of tips to help you to become a power Pinterest user. Don’t let the title fool you – as a blogger, you can benefit from all of Kim’s pointers!
After opening with a brief overview of Pinterest, Kim spends the remainder of her book exploring ways you can effectively use Pinterest to build your business. She helps you determine how your business can benefit from Pinterest, and offers tips for establishing an online presence and building your brand. She also provides ideas for finding followers and connecting with customers, as well as using Pinterest for SEO optimization.
