Pinterest was recommended to me when I was in my last year of Uni. I have to admit I was a little sceptical at first, bit after a couple of
hours playing minutes working I was hooked.
I love the simplicity of just linking through a picture … no messy text to get in tge way … unless you want to find out more about that ‘pin’.
I’ve also just begun to use as a way of showcasing my jewellery. I think it is an excellent medium to show people on a wide scale what you make. Of course I would recommend good photography though. Nothing can be more off putting than a bad photograph.
I think it is also good for your customers or fans to get a snap shot of who you are and what you are about. The internet is fabulous for selling but I think that it is difficult sometimes to get a connectoon with the person you are buying from, I know from personal experience that a bit of banter with a person has led me back to that store over & over again.
So what about you? Do you use Pinterest? Is it strictly personal or do you put inspirations on there? If you would like to follow me you can find me here … pinterest.
I’ve also been listing lots on the store… go over and let me know what you think.
