Pinterest, an online bulletin board for your favourite images, launched in 2010 and is already experiencing wild growth. The site registered more than 30 million unique visitors. Reportedly it’s driving more traffic to company websites and blogs than YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn combined.

The beauty of Pinterest lies in its simplicity. The site harnesses the power of the personal referral. By creating topic-specific pinboards, you can organize and share the things you love with others, in a visually pleasing way. You also can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new foods, adventures and opportunities, and to get inspiration from people who share your interests.

Pinterest allows you to organize images maybe pretty sunrises or wines you’ve tasted — into boards for specific categories. When you pin something new, your followers will see it. They can like, comment or re-pin it to their boards. Like Facebook content, your Pinterest pins can go viral.

Here are the things you can use this wonderful app for-

Promote your Business or Blog

You can create pinboards for the types of products you sell (with links back to your website) and add boards like “Things We Love,” “Sale Items” or “Gift Ideas.” But it’s important to remember not to make your Pinterest profile all about your business.

Decorate your Home
