12 Most Strategic Ways to Use Pinterest for Marketing
Pinterest is fun and boosts creativity but at it’s social media heart, +Pinterest is marketing. Very smart marketing!

Are you wondering how you can use Pinterest to market your small business, company, blog, or to promote your next book or product? Visual marketing on Pinterest is a low-key, self-paced way to reach people and get the word out.

Having a strategy for your Pinterest activities will help you reach your goals and objectives. You have those in place, right? Here are my tips and strategic ways to use Pinterest for marketing:

1. Create boards with keywords in your title
2. Use the description to spread your ideas
3. Create vertical images to maximize your real estate
4. Build relevant links back to your website or blog

I can't stress this enough:  have a pinnable image on every post that you publish

12 Most doesn’t have a big image but does have an image that pins with each post. I like to create a bigger image of 735 x 1102 because Pinterest loves tall, vertical images. I’ll create a big image, pin the large image, and then share the pin with the blog link. 

How are you using Pinterest for marketing?

Pre-I/O Glass Hackathon

A few us in the Bay Area are organizing a Google Glass hackathon for the weekend before Google I/O (6/20-21 or 22). We're still working on nailing down the space and details, but I can say it's going to be a ton of fun! If you're traveling to SF for I/O, and you're a Glass Explorer who likes to hack on things, you might want to come a few days early for this. I'll be getting a website up for details in the next week or so.

Have you used any of these tools before?

Our team is semi-virtual, and so we're always trying to find new tools to help us with productivity and better our communication. (It can be difficult when people are in/out of the office, or working remotely) We had +Alina Vrabie on the blog today and she shared a bunch of tools, and I actually haven't of a bunch of them.

I'm really interested in trying out a couple of them, and more specifically Sqwiggle, but want to get some reviews from other people before making the plunge. Have you ever used it before?
Whether your team is all in one office, or virtual, these 9 team communication tools will improve your communication drastically.
