@amyhallbiz im promoting the store on pinterest…and getting lots of hits to my website.its a big tool…im a retail store….. and its part of the culture of my customers….
so far i dont worry about the image issues…. its so rampant i figure if its a problem pinterest better telll someone…. i do dislike how grey the promoting part is….pinterest says no but they have a gift section for things with prices, big brands use it, and pinterest had a webinar on how to sell on there within their rules…with a wink…so i dont know what they are really saying….
i dont put prices on my items but mainly because i thnk its against the pinterest mood and atmosphere…. they can get to me easily if they want to….
if you are serving customers within the big pinterest categories[women,shoppping,decorating,weddings ,babies,food, art, diy,fashion,} etc etc i think you will be missing something huge for them if you dont get them involved…. its a big plus for our store and i can say for sure on the minds of my customers, women…
just guessing but i doubt if social media businesses will have big success being on pinterest…but that doesnt mean you shouldnt send your fashion boutique owner customers to it….i go to pinterest for eyecandy not tekk info…i come here and other laces for that….
