This infographic was created by Awareness Networks that illustrates some of the great information you’ll get in their white paper that I found to be excellent containing strategies and case studies that can help brands dominate Pinterest and Linkedin.
“In our newest white paper, Beyond the Big 3: Five Killer Strategies to Dominate LinkedIn and Pinterest, we build on concepts shared in Five Killer Strategies to Dominate Social Media’s Big 3: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.”
Pinterest & Linkedin are catching up to the big 3 social networks Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, it’s time to take these two social networks more seriously for many brands that don’t have a strong presence there…….
Here are a few takeaways:
**Register your profile on Pinterest Directories:
**WPin.org – based on specific interests
**Repinly.com – lists stats on Pinterests users
**Start a Linkedin group – they give an example where Civicventures, a non-profit started a group called “Encore Careers” for 50+ year-old adults to discuss issues of concern to them in a safe and spam-free enviornment.
1,500 people joined the group in a very short period of time
This gives you an idea of what’s possible for your brand or group.
Increase Content Engagement
**Aim to become the top pin-board on one or a few topics
They use the example of Whole Foods and how they used their pinboards to become a thought leader for recipes, reused and recycled items and green live.
**Be Unique! Use a video or appropriate profile modules to showcase your company
