@margiemintz I’ve started thinking of Pinterest as a way for a business to showcase its design style, show samples of materials, construction capabilities, interest in recycled materials, or other things that can be written about on a website but sometimes need a visual to really communicate.
For my husband’s construction business, I’ve created pin boards that we refer clients to when they want ideas for their deck, pond, bathroom remodel, etc. I make sure to note any features that are particularly interesting, or ways in which a design could be adapted to fit a different use.
For my interior designer friend, I suggested she set up boards for fabrics, furniture, tile, appliances, finished rooms, etc., as well as one called “my style” so she could show customers different options, and how she typically designs. She’s just getting them going so it will be interesting to see how that works for her!
You could do boards showing different website designs, navigation techniques, color schemes, infographics, etc that you could send clients to…then get their feedback on what they liked to help kick-start the design process…
