Pinterest is the third most-popular social network in the U.S., behind Facebook and Twitter. This visually focused social media marketing platform is the fastest growing social platform and has become an extremely popular channel for brands of all shapes and sizes. This is likely the case because Pinterest is similar to a search engine, often compared to Google. If your business is hoping to capture the attention of social users then Pinterest is a platform you must build a presence on.
STEP 1: Invitation Request
Pinterest is currently a closed social platform so if you want to participate you’ll need an invitation. Don’t worry it’s easy to get one! There are two ways to start a Pinterest account for your business: 1) Request an invitation directly from Pinterest OR 2) Get invited by a friend who already has an account.
Requests sent directly Pinterest can take as long as several weeks before you get an invitation. Once you’ve requested the invitation you’ll be placed on the Pinterest waiting list. This can be extremely frustrating if you’re excited to get started. While it might not happen immediately you will eventually receive your invitation.
If you’re lucky enough to know someone who already has a Pinterest account you can get your account started almost immediately. Simply ask your friend for an invitation and you will receive an email invite to join Pinterest immediately. Guess what!?! I have a Pinterest account and would be thrilled to help you out!
