Pinning Down Pinterest
If ever there was a social media network that is closely suited to the paint and decorating industry, that site is certainly Pinterest.
Pinterest is the latest social media phenomenon, attracting consumers who want to share their mutual interests on a multitude of topics such as home decorating, crafts, recipes and more. The site is especially popular with women, ages 25 to 54, which just so happens to be the key demographic of the paint and decorating industry.
To help retailers “pin down” the potential of Pinterest, PDRA hosted its first social media webinar on June 19. “Pinning Down Pinterest” was free to PDRA members and $50 for non-members. The interactive nature of the one-hour webinar allowed participants to view the presentation at their computers and ask questions at its conclusion.
Beth Trejo, president and co-founder of Chatterkick, did an excellent job in presenting the webinar, which included some useful tips on how individuals and companies can get started on Pinterest, as well as great demographic information on the reach and influence of this new social media site.
“Pinning Down Pinterest” is the first in a series of planned PDRA webinars. Look for details in future blog posts, at the PDRA website and by following us on Twitter.
