As with any social media marketing site being used for business the basics always require you to understand the terminology being used and what it means. In order to do that you need to understand exactly what is meant by pinning, repinning and all the other words that have evolved as a result of Pinterest.
Board – This is the place where you “pin” your images. Just like a cork board in real life a board in Pinterest is where you post your images and can remove and repost them as you see fit.
Pin or Pinning – The action of posting a picture to your board. (Hence the sites name Pinterest, the pinning of interesting images.)
Repin or Repinning – What another Pinterest user does with your images. This is when they take an image from one of your boards and repin it to one of their own boards.
Pinners – The common term used for members of Pinterest. Pinners are like Facebook fan page followers.
So now you know the terminology, what’s the next step? Well, now the fun can begin!
Prepare to lose large chunks of time as you learn the site and it’s rather addictive ways (which is part of the reason all businesses should be on it.)
From there you simply need to start posting your pictures and links to your sites and products and watching your traffic and bottom line grow.
