Why you need to get Pinning
Here is an update on my February 2012 post about social media darling Pinterest. Social Media Explorer has a helpful infographic here which shows how Pinterest can drive retail traffic. Social Media Examiner has this post about how to measure your results with #Pinterest Analytics. And Hubspot gives great advice for SEO within the platform here.
Get started with this great marketing tool by reading the articles below. Then check out the three above to see what Pinterest can do for you. Personally, I think having boards for each of your product types is an excellent idea. You could even break those down by good, better, and best product boards. Another use is sharing the latest industry research from your vendor partners. As is pinning images of your installations. To see it in action visit Mason, Inc.’s Pinterest boards.

If you are a contract office furniture dealer, the main reason, to use Pinterest, is because it is the perfect resource for one of your primary target audiences – Interior Designers. Pinterest boards are a fantastic way to establish authority with them and be valued as a helpful partner. They visit your boards for ideas and come to you for the furniture. That is what you can get from Pinterest.
