Pinterest is quickly becoming one of the most powerful social networks on the scene. Increasing your activity and knowing the tricks to get more Pinterest followers is important.
If your product is targeted towards women then it is crucial to have an online presence on Pinterest. Pinterest is the now the 3rd most popular social network and the 16th most popular website in the US. Not only does Pinterest rate very high in Google search, it's also very popular, drives a ton of traffic and is very positive in nature.
5 Things You Should Know About Pinterest

Why is Facebook concentrating solely on a news feed app? Well, the company definitely understands that its news feed is one of the most vital components overall. It’s one of the most effective way to lure people back to the social network multiple times a day. But to improve that experience without alienating its user base, Facebook produced Paper.
The app is a huge departure from the news feed in other Facebook mobile apps. As you can see from the demo video below, the user interface is quite different. You scroll through new content by swiping horizontally. When you find something you’d like to read, tapping it will expand the content to the entire screen. You can still scroll horizontally within those individual posts to advance to the next piece of content, too. There are also sections of content split up like you’d find on a news site.
I want to accomplish a couple of things here today.
One, I want to introduce you to a group of content marketing leaders you should tune into because you’ll learn from them, gather valuable points of view and sharpen your skills.
Two, after making my way through this roster of leaders I admire and endorse, I want to wrap this post up with a conclusion that speaks to why I feel this all-star team shares a common vision—a collective mindset that gives content marketing its wings.
So, first, we’ll look at 10 friends and mentors I consider to be the leaders of a movement and new paradigm in new media marketing.
Email is an incredibly powerful marketing channel. According to new research from McKinsey & Company, email marketing is 40 times more effective at attracting new business than Facebook and Twitter combined. This statistic may strike you as surprising—considering all the industry hullabaloo surrounding social media. Prospects who land on your website through email marketing are more likely to convert to clients than those who arrive via social media, and email subscribers spend significantly more than social media prospects once they make a buying decision.
However, McKinsey cautions that these email marketing trends may not continue in the long run, citing a decline in the rate that people check their email—20% between 2008 and 2013. The change is attributed to the increasing number of ways to communicate, largely a wide variety of social media channels. Although email still has a distinct marketing advantage over social media, the McKinsey report projects that the gap will likely shrink, as Facebook, Twitter and other social networks mature and work to enhance engagement. Act now to realize the full potential of your email marketing.
