Using Instagram & Pinterest to Promote Your Business

Create a social following on-line with images today.

You’ve probably heard of Instagram & Pinterest, but you may not realize what potential they have for showcasing your business online. As with other social media platforms the emphasis is on social interaction via the web, but in the case of Instagram and Pinterest, the focus is on telling your story through images.

For any businesses wanting to build its brand, both these social media platforms provide the opportunity to build relationships with audiences who prefer visual media (pictures and images).

According to top social media site ‘Social Media Examiner’ businesses are flocking to Instagram in droves, and now they have a blog specifically to help businesses make the most of their facility. After all, over 300M people use Instagram every month.

Pinterest is growing rapidly too and it provides a platform to create image collections that help to reinforce and build your brand, customer reach as well as helping to drive traffic to your website.
