It seems that Pinterest is all the rage in online social circles lately. This online bulletin board allows you to share photos of things you find interesting online, including real estate listings, that also include a link back to the original source material. No plagiarizing allowed there! But, did you know that you can pin more than photos on your Pinterest board? It's true!
Pinstamatic allows you to take Pinterest to the next level. While photos are great, especially when you get the added Google juice of an instant link back to the source (like your real estate website or blog, for example), now you can also pin things like a website snapshot, sticky notes, quotes, a Twitter profile, calendar dates, locations and even your favorite tracks on Spotify. This is your chance to create a marketing plaform for your business in a fun, unique way. Let's say you have a real estate listing, open house, company event or local area you want to showcase. Add a snapshot of your site, put details on a sticky note, add the date and location of specific events and maybe include your Twitter profile, your company's Twitter profile and/or the location's Twitter profile (if applicable). Let people know you really have your finger on the pulse of the communities you serve without an "in-your-face" glut of advertising. Once you create an interest in the area, traffic will naturally filter to your real estate website and/or blog.
It's easy to to instantly use Pinstamatic. You simply log in to your Pinterest account, go to Pinstamatic's website, click on the icons at the top of the page corresponding to the task you wish to perform (Twitter profile, website snapshot, sticky note, etc) and begin. It's absolutely free! Now you can pin more than photos on your Pinterest board. Set up your own real estate Pinterest board and begin sharing now. Please let me know how you've used Pinterest to create interest in your business. I'm always excited to see new and inventive ways of marketing yourself online.
