pinterest, marketing,Pinterest is one of the fastest growing sites around.

Why? It’s simple and addictive. You add a Pin It bookmarklet and then when you come across a cool picture on the net you pin it. These pins are shared on boards and can be viewed by millions of other pinners out there.

How can pinterest help your website?

Say you have a blog and you put a really cool picture on it. Pinterest can be the tipping point (Great Malcolm Gladwell book reference in there!) that sends a viral wave of traffic to your website.

Here is an example of what I am talking about. I added a quote I found from Facebook …

pinterest, traffic, backlinks,

Cool quote. What happened next surprised me. Someone liked it and repinned it. One of their friends must have thought it was pretty cool too and repinned it also. Then their friends pinned it and so on.

At the time of this post it has been repinned by 1,399 people and liked 292.

Imagine if this was an image on your website, maybe some decorative cupcakes or some mouth watering recipe. This could be a very easy way to get no cost traffic to your website or blog if used in the correct way.

So if you are not already on Pinterest, what are you waiting for? Your competition may already be there.
