How to be a Pinterest SuperstarSome of you may have already jumped on the Pinterest band wagon and some of you may still be wondering what exactly it can do to help increase traffic to your communities.

The number one reason to use Pinterest is for the referral traffic – that is the percentage of Pinterest visitors who click on links to go to other sites, is far higher on Pinterest than other social media sites, according to Mashable.com.

As of March 2012 Pinterest was ranked as the #3 social media site, with 104 million visitors.  Here’s the ranking:

  1. Facebook: 7 billion
  2. Twitter: 182 million
  3. Pinterest: 104 million
  4. LinkedIn: 86 million
  5. Tagged: 72 million
  6. Google+: 61 million

If you haven’t already signed your community up for Pinterest, you will need an invite from a fellow member.  In signing up our communities, I invited them from my personal account and learned that it was easier to register them using our Twitter accounts.  When using Facebook to sign up, it kept wanting to use the administrator’s information— not the community’s page.

Pinterest vs. Google+ Here it Starts! What About Facebook?

Google+ and Pinterest are Growing at Incredible Rates is Facebook a Thing of the Past? Old Hat?

Is Facebook’s 15 minutes of fame over?

I am starting to see stories like the one below that talk about which one is better for the marketer. Pinterest or Google+ and I ask… so where is Facebook in this debate? Is Facebook done and are we moving on?

I am sure that many will say that Facebook is not out… What are you talking about JW? No Facebook is not out, but for a few years we have been talking about not putting all our eggs in one basket as marketers, because we do not know where the pendulum will swing and who will land on top, for what reason or why.

Everyone uses the “Remember MySpace?” question when speaking about where the social technologies are going. No one knows, and I believe it is stories like this one, that kinda start the catalyst of small shifts that start moves to other platforms, even to platforms we cannot even perceive right not.

Waves form, tipping points are hit and we as networkers and marketers are always looking for a better way. A leg up on the competition and we want to be the early adopter, as the early bird seems to get the most worms.

Instagram sells for 1Billion to Facebook! Who’d a seen that coming. Now that Instagram is available on the Android will this app take off as the next big place you have to be? Will other companies do Instagram better? Can Pinterest add pages and allow for picture manipulation?

Speaking of Pinterest… What about Meaki?

What do you think is the next big wave… Is all this short lived fad or long term paradigm shifts in how people and business will communicate?

By the way… Business pages for Google +… Is anyone using them successfully? I have not seen them pointed to, talked about or used in any manner that seems to matter and Facebook took their configurable pages and will not allow you to default to them anymore so what is the use of them?

Am I the only one that seems to be in a constant state of confusion?


Pinterest vs. Google+: Which New Social Network Is Worth Marketers’ Time?.

google plus vs pinterestintroductory3

We’ve all gotten used to the idea of using Twitter, Facebook, and even YouTube for marketing — even if the platforms aren’t always as brand-friendly as they could be. And why should they be? They started as social networks meant for people to talk to people, not companies to talk to consumers. But in the struggle for monetization, they’ve had to adapt and continue offering ways for brands to market and make money using social media.
