Have an Interest in Pinterest?

Thoughts No Comments »


Pinterest is one of the new and upcoming social media sites that’s been around for a while, but not many people have really heard of it until recently. The purpose of Pinterest is to “pin” images and share things you are interested in visually. So in essence it is similar to “liking” things on Facebook; therefore, you are connecting with others through a common interest.

According to thelinkbuilders.com, Pinterest had around 11.7 million unique monthly users as of January 2012.

The set up behind Pinterest is simple; create a “pinboard” and “pin” video or images from the web or from other users to your “pinboard.” The social networking aspect is tied in through Facebook, Twitter, and through following other users or just specifically following “pinboards” you like. Plus, you can like and comment on other “pinboards” as well.

What makes this site so popular and attractive is the fact that it’s all visually appealing and thus makes it easy and user friendly. So, for companies like retailers, one can gain business from users “liking and “pining” their products on Pinterest.

Many companies and small businesses try to gain business the best way they can through advertisement. One way they try to achieve this is by using social media networks. For example, getting Facebook users to “like” their business page. The purpose for this to simple, if you like something you are more prone to know about and use that companies product. As well as, the more people that “like” a company the bigger their fan base will grow and building a fan base is key for any company.

According to businessinsider.com, these are the top 20 fastest growing companies on Facebook.

Amazon – 14,475,623 “likes”
One way Amazon tries to increase its fan base, is by offering sweepstakes and giveaways. It is constantly updating its page with the latest offers and promotions to help their consumer find the best deals.

Target – 20,949, 376 “likes”

Keeps its customers informed of the latest styles and trends offered at Kohls. They also update their page with upcoming sales and promotions.

Bud Light – 5,077,491 “likes”
This is probably one of the fastest growing companies on Facebook. The biggest draw towards liking this page, is the “enter to win sweepstakes” for NFL tickets for life. It also presents fan base photos and will occasionally offer recipes.

Starbucks – 32,881,945 “likes”

Provides updates on promotions and seasonal coffees, enter to win sweepstakes, and a multitude of indulging photos that entice its consumer to want to buy Starbucks coffee. Starbucks also does some charity work. For example, Starbucks recently joined in to help with hurricane Sandy relief.
