Getting Started With Pinterest

Welcome to Pinterest Prep School at Blogging Bistro. For the next few weeks, we’re featuring guest posts that explore how to use this new social network that is taking the world by storm.

If you’re scratching your head and thinking, “Huh? What’s Pinterest and how do you pronounce it?”

The short answer is:

Pin + Interest = Pinterest

Pinterest is a virtual corkboard where you “pin” pictures of your favorite anything.

On the Blogging Bistro Pinterest account, we pin social media infographics. Because pinboards can get cluttered in a hurry — particularly with those gigantic infographics that are currently in vogue — we’ve created separate “boards” for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, and Blogging infographics (among others). We even created a board called “Infographics About Infographics.”

It doesn’t take long to set up a Pinterest account and to master the ins and outs.

Our friends at Brain Host provided us with a free downloadable e-book, Promote Your Website With Pinterest.

The 22-page book clearly explains:

  • How to set up your Pinterest account
  • An essential glossary of Pinterest terms
  • How to get the most out of Pinterest
  • Content marketing strategy case study:
