The #1 Lie About Pinterest

There is a certain lie about Pinterest that is causing millions of business owners to believe that they can't use it for their businesses.

This misunderstanding is causing them to miss out on tons of free exposure and traffic. Not to mention, tons of potential customers!

Well I'm going to demonstrate how you can showcase your knowledge and skills on Pinterest to gain exposure and credibility within your industry.

So without further ado, I present to you:

The Best Way for Service Businesses to Leverage the Power of Pinterest

Start sharing your information and education on Pinterest.

The best way to do this is to turn your information into an image by creating an Infographic.

    The main focus and highest percent profit for my business is offering adventure team building to corporations. While I see your point about highlighting services on Pinterest, is this anything a corporation would ever look at? I also teach outrigger classes, as well as Hawaiian craft classes to groups and individuals, but it’s such a small profit percent, I’m thinking that “working” Pinterest for it would not be an effective use of my time.

      Hi Judith – You could use it for branding purposes to show photos from all of the great events you put together and send it to potential corporations.

    Hi Melanie,

    I listened to your webinar last week and I ordered the pinterest program for $67. Though it was charged to my bank account – I don’t have a receipt for the product. I’m also not sure how I’ll receive it. Is it a download or will I receive it through the mail?

    Thanks so much and I’m already using some of your suggestions!!
