Pinterest For Events

15 Flares 15 Flares ×

Holy cow!  Have you seen the buzz about Pinterest lately? It seems like everyone and their sister has joined the new social networking site and is pinning their favorite pictures.

I was trying to hold off for as long as I could, but when I heard about how much traffic it is driving, I had to join the fun.

Daphne Bousquet on PinterestSo I joined and within hours, before I even had a chance to start pinning, I had a bunch of followers. Since I signed up through my Facebook account, it gave me the option to automatically follow the boards of my Facebook friends on Pinterest.

So far, I have a few boards I am planning to pin on; Event Strategies, Inspire Me, Butts in Seats, Event Venues That Rock and Business Books I Love.

Pinterest and events seem to have a natural synergy.  Events are very visual, so it is great to create a pin board for your event. Include pictures of your attendees, of your stage, blog posts you have written about it, videos from your speakers and testimonials.  The possibilities are endless.

Your attendees will see themselves in your pictures and repin them.  That is what takes your pins viral.

See my sample event board of NAMS here.  I am still tinkering with it, and so far I haven’t seen any big upsurge in traffic. But then again, I haven’t really promoted it, either.

With all these possibilities, I have decided to include a lesson specifically on Pinterest for events in my How to Market a Seminar with Social Media course.

The course already includes Twitter, the new Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Google+ and now Pinterest.   The lessons not only include the basic how to’s, but also the more advanced strategies that you can use to market your events without resorting to blatant self promotion.

Get started today!

  1. Adding events is a great idea Daphne! And I agree, having anything visual these days is a great way to capture that attention and build curiosity. I started a board for videos. I like how on Pinterest you can organize boards that way.

    I think Pinterest can be an effective business tool when used properly. I enjoy using it more and more each day. By the way, I am following you now on Pinterest!

      Great to have you as a Pinterest follower, Lynn. Love being connected with you across all the networks. Pinterest is a fun network, though and it has so many possibilities and applications. No wonder it is growing so fast!
