This week’s blog was written by a very close connection, colleague and friend of mine, Melonie Dodaro. Her new book, LinkedIn Unlocked comes out today and I invited her to write a guest blog post for you on how to leverage the power of LinkedIn for helping and growing your customer base. Enjoy!
I’ve had several questions lately about Pinterest, the new Social Media platform that’s sweeping the globe. So, of course I decided that today’s blog should cover everything you need to know on it. What I didn’t expect was that one of my fabulous clients, Tonya Davidson, would beat me to the punch and create an awesome quick start guide to this great new tool!
She did such a wonderful job that I want to share her post with you all here. After you read it and get all setup in Pinterest be sure and follow me on there! If you don’t have an account yet and need an invite just leave me a comment here on the blog and I’ll get one out to you asap!
Pinterest: What is it and Why Do I Want to Participate?

I happen to love visual images! They inspire me, they invigorate my mind, and they also let me dream. I dream about pieces I want to create, materials I want to work with, places I want to go, things I want to experience, etc. This is exactly what Pinterest is! It is a visual Facebook! It’s a lot of fun! Plus it’s great for your branding.
How Can I Get Onto the Pinterest Site?
Currently, you can go to www.pinterest.com and apply for an invite or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll invite you! It’s faster if you are invited by someone already on Pinterest.
Once I Get There, What’s the Next Step?
The first thing you’ll want to do is set up your Profile Page…
