Pinterest is the hottest social site online today. And you might say it’s the next best thing in social media. But since it’s known now to be the fastest growing social site in history, it may very well be ‘The Thing” in social media very shortly.
What is Pinterest? Basically, it’s a place where you can collect, curate, and express yourself visually with images and video. And for some, it’s been an absolute addiction from day one to express themselves this way.
In fact, marketers predict that it will be the #1 website to go to for all visual searches in the future. Now, that remains to be seen but it’s definitely on its way.
Even with it being the next big thing this year, it is still relatively unknown to the public at large. You do have your major businesses and brands on this site like Walmart, McDonalds, Sony, etc.
But there are major brands being pinned to the site, and they have yet to begin to create a presence on the site.
So of course if you own a small business or you're an individual marketer, your eyes should be wide open to the possibilities.
