Social media is now the new word of mouth. Almost all businesses use it to promote their products and services. In fact, some even just focus on social media alone to market their products. In this arena, another social media site and bookmarking site has emerged. Let’s call it Pinterest.

Starting your Pinterest account
Just like all other social networking sites, your Pinterest profile is created by signing up. You can do this by two methods. You can sign up through your already existing social networking profile (Facebook and Twitter) or you can sign up using your email address. What’s great about Pinterest is like Google it enables you to link your website through a website verification technology, to check the click rate and see how you are doing.
Now, that you have a profile, you can pin as many pictures as you want. You can start building your own picture boards, with things that interests you. Including pictures of the websites you have built in the past. Add as many people as you want (but don’t spam) and pin as many high quality images as you can. Are you Pinterested?
