Pinterest: How to Make Money Online with Pictures
“Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organising things you love”, so says the company. It’s a new social media network that encourages it’s participants to “pin” photos and imagery onto virtual pinboards, which are then shared and followed by others on the network and further afield.
You may not know that Pinterest is the third biggest social network in the US, with over 11.7 million users and was valued at $1.5 billlion last year. This presents an opportunity for you and your business: Whilst you and your competitors probably already compete and jockey for power on Google search, AdWords, Facebook, Twitter, it’s highly unlikely that either of you are using Pinterest to it’s full potential to maximise your sales.
As Pinterest is so new, and thus relatively “unknown” at the moment, this presents a huge opportunity to jump in and dominate your niche before your competitors catch-on.
Steve Brown has been marketing online for over 7 years and owns well over 100 websites. After a career that included running 16 retail shops across South Wales when he was 25, 8 years in the financial services industry, 18 years as a part of the management team in Ford’s Swansea, a C licence football coach with Swansea City Ladies, and owning two coffee shops in Swansea as a hobby. Finally he has settled down to working with small local businesses across the UK helping them make more money through effective online marketing strategies. He is the lead tutor for our very own Cardiff Internet Marketing take-action-get-results half-day workshops.
The Future Inn is located within the Red Dragon Centre complex, opposite County Hall in Cardiff Bay. Drive into the complex, turn left at Chiquito’s restaurant and the hotel is at the end of the road. There is ample, free parking for us but please ensure you inform the hotel’s reception of your car numberplate (there is a security patrol to ensure outsiders aren’t abusing the car park!).
The nearest train station is Cardiff Bay, which is about 10 minutes on foot. Also, the Baycar and other buses come down this way from the City Centre.
Business Networking: Local businesses talking to Internet professionals
Both before and after the talk by our guest speaker, there will be plenty of opportunity to network with other local small businesses and Internet Marketing experts over a relaxed drink at the bar. The talk starts promptly at 6:30pm, with most people turning-up at 6:00pm. After the talk, you can stay as long as you want! (Most people stay until about 9:00pm, some much longer!)
