Pinterest for Business?

Posted on 14 November 2012 by Linda Joseph

Do you use Pinterest for Business?

If you do, you can now set up a Pinterest account for your business! Many of us have been using Pinterest for both personal and business exposure.

Now you have the opportunity to sign up  for a Pinterest business account.

According to the article in Mashable:

Companies will now be able to create business accounts, which allows them to enter just a business name — rather than a first and last — and verify their websites using a hidden line of code. Once the code has been recognized, businesses will receive a verification badge on their Pinterest profile pages. It’s not quite as good as Twitter’s profile verification — it would still be easy for someone to impersonate a company on Pinterest by verifying a URL that was similar but not owned by the brand — but it’s a start.

You can read more here: http://mashable.com/2012/11/14/pinterest-business-accounts/

Here is the good news: if you are a business and have set up a personal account, then you will have the opportunity to convert the personal account into a business account.

Here is a video showing you how:

If you have a mix of business and personal pins – which most of us business owners have, you may want to start a new account for your business and leave your personal account as is.

What are you going to do?  Go to Pinterest Business to get started.

Pinterest: How to Block Pinning from your Website

Posted on 01 March 2012 by Linda Joseph

How do I keep people from pinning images on my website?

I’m not sure “WHY” you would want to do this, but if there is a need, there is a way…

No pinning allowed

Pinterest may be an Internet hit — especially with U.S. women and Facebook CEOs. But not all companies want to ride the pinboard wave of referral traffic.

Now Pinterest has released code for companies that want to block the pinning of content from their sites to personal pinboards.

Pinterest recently released the code in their help section, which companies can copy and paste into their websites, prompting a message with each pin attempt that states: “This site doesn’t allow pinning to Pinterest. Please contact the owner with any questions. Thanks for visiting!”

Watch the video.

Here is the page where you can get help from Pinterest.

Here is the code to use on your website to prevent pinning:

Mark Zuckerberg Joined Pinterest

Posted on 27 February 2012 by Linda Joseph

Pinterest and Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg has a Pinterest account!

So what…????  He also has a Twitter account and Google + account.

In looking at both of these accounts, it doesn’t appear that he has done much with them.

Come on,,, he has 19 tweets!  I don’t like or use Twitter but have substantial more tweets!

Let’s look at his Pinterest profile.

pinterest facebook

So, we don’t care that Mark Zuckerberg has a Pinterest account. BUT we do care that Pinerest users spend a lot of time on Pinterest…  Look at the graphic below..

Social Network Usage

So Pinterest has moved into contention position to some of the other social media sites. (Facebook and Tumblr don’t need to worry,,,,yet.)

Helping you to define your roadmap for success,

Linda
