Automotive Digital Marketing

Automotive Marketing Professional Community for Car Dealers, OEM and Suppliers

Loading... Be Patient!

As much as I love me some Pinterest, I've had difficulty explaining to dealers why keeping their boards to a strict automotive theme sticks out like a sore thumb among the pinned images that are more popular on the site - cupcakes, home decor, and puppies.

But alas - we have Pinterest for men! Named appropriately, "Manteresting." If you laugh at how badly the average female's taste is pigeonholed on Pinterest, well don't hold your breath for its manly version because the main dashboard right now is displaying hot girls, a mobster baby, and rap stars.

If Pinterest isn't taking over your life (like it is for me) then maybe you should try out MANteresting.

MANteresting, Pinterest, or even "Gentlemint" - these image-sharing social sites are here to stay and  since Google's navigation puts "Images" and "Video" before "News" then I say you should be signing up for these sites and fast.

Hi Sylvia,

I'll shoot you an invite as soon I get some more - used up the few I had from other requests already. Thx!

Yep, I did it for our dealership...and I've been "Nailed" and "Re-nailed" several times. LOL Pinterest is still better, thought. Much!

@Eric - I want an invite to gentlemint

Please and thank you.

@Brian, If you want to feel manly, be sure to check out Gentlemint.

These sites are great for connecting with others & telling your brand story - not necessarily the best solution for acquisition; they may offer ZMOT's for some products, not so much for others. 

I've found the best way to participate is using the mobile bookmark - very easy to pin something on the fly. 

Let me know if anyone wants an invite to Gentlemint - you can find me there at:

I have an interest in Pinterest. Our GM District Manager loves Pinterest.  In fact, a majority of Pinterest users, like her, are women.  And women buy cars!  But be careful before you jump in.  Read this cautionary note:

Do your homework, and once you do, enjoy and profit!
