Pinterest is a powerful organizing tool. The latest social networking darling uses the premise of sorting like with like. Pinners, as they are called, gather ideas on to virtual boards, in much the same way we once pinned a magazine article to a corkboard.
Organizing with Pinterest:
Create as many pin boards as you like. The more specific they are, the easier it will be to find what you’re looking for. Rather than have one organizing board, I have several. They include Organizing Jewelry, Closets, Organizing Products and so on. I’m able to refer clients to a specific board, or draw from the links to share an idea.
You can read more about Pinterest on my blog post Organizing with Pinterest.
Pinterest builds community:
Pinners share recipes, organizing tips, design ideas and resources. Once you’ve set up an account, you can follow, share and inspire others. What better way to build a community
Pinterest is a great marketing tool:
Pinterest is a great way to share photos and links to your website or blog. If you have interesting visual content, clever tutorials or fun videos, go ahead and pin them to one of your boards. Pinterest links back to your website. This gives you further exposure for your great content. Conversely, you can pin ideas to a board and them use the pin board on your blog or site. I wrote a blog post in January entitled B.Y.O.B = Bring Your Own Bag in response to our community ban on plastic shopping bags. I created a pin board and gathered multiple resources to support the article.
