In the post on The Power of Connection, I touch briefly on the social media sites I find to work the best for me. Pinterest is a growing information sharing site that uses images as its medium. From what I hear it is apparently a great outlet for rising businesses that is being scarcely used. Like many other business owners, initially I could not find a way to make Pinterest work for me, or a way to incorporate it into my already exhibiting social media platforms. All of that changed this weekend. In case you hadn’t realized by now, I like to work on a number of projects at any given time. My inspiration and creativity stems from so many sources it is hard to contain my brain at times. Nevertheless, I have found a way to utilize Pinterest to my creative benefit. 

Currently I am working on a creative book for models and newbie photographers as well as Young ‘n Fly Magazine. Pinterest will allow me to showcase the photography work being done on both of these projects in a way that is appealing to this particular audience. It also allows me to implement do it yourself (DIY) hair and make-up techniques, clothing styles, and poses to refer my models too prior to our shoots. The best part, this is a great expansion into our conversation about how Free Doesn’t Always Mean Free. Is the benefits of utilizing Pinterest are as great as I have heard, this advertising costs you absolutely nothing but easily reaches millions.

While I have begun to implement some of these features on Pinterest, I still have a long way to go. Definitely check out what I have done so far by clicking here. I am very excited about this new venture and I would love for you to feel free to chime in with your feedback! Are you already using Pinterest for your business? Please leave your advice and tips below.

As a follow up, I have also begun to fill up my Instagram account. You can check that out here as well.
