A Marketer's Guide To Pinterest: Why Should You Use It?

A new video infographic showing the growing importance of Pinterest to marketers has been unleashed upon the web.

The new kid on the social media block has been making a lot of headlines recently. Its goal to "connect everyone in the world through the things they find interesting" may seem ambitious, but judging by MDG Advertising's video 'A Marketer's Guide to Pinterest', it has already made an astounding start.

The new platform, which invites members to 'pin' their favourite videos, pictures, articles and photos from across the web on digital 'bulletin boards', is growing at a record rate, surpassing even Facebook and Twitter at the same stage in their history. 

However, inevitably, when any social site becomes popular with consumers, brands are soon hot on their heels. Pinterest is no different, with brands already flocking to the social platform.

But once you get there, how do you use it to engage potential customers? Well, MDG Advertising's new video is here to help.

It shows viewers how to navigate Pinterest's features and explains some of the terminology, as well as demonstrating how companies can leverage it for the best response and referral traffic.

Check out the video below for some great stats, information and guidelines for efficient marketing with Pinterest...

Infographic: Pinterest Is Making Serious Social Media Waves 

Now we all know that Pinterest is still the relatively new kid on the social media block, but it's now drawing some serious attention. 

The pinboard-style social photo-sharing website has proven a huge success since it was launched back in March 2010.

This latest infographic demonstrates the astonishing growth rate this network is experiencing. Referral rates to the site are now on a par with Twitter

While the demographic data still suggests a huge 80% of users are women, it would appear the women are pin-it mad.

My advice to you all is watch this space. With an a daily user increase of 145% in 2012, more and more people are taking to pinning as a form of sharing with their friends and social communities.  

For all the latest stats and data, be sure to digest what you can from the infographic below.
