Whether you have jumped on the Pinterest wagon, waiting on the sidelines, or vehemently despise the concept, you need to take some minimal level of action regarding this site.
Similar to years ago, when Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and others began to grow in popularity, brands needed to stake their claim on these sites. Pinterest is no different. Because I joined this site several months ago, nobody else can have http://pinterest.com/georgenenni/
Have you secured your brand yet? As Bluto Blutarsky said, "Don't cost nothin'".
I am a big fan of Martin Guitars, bought a 1984 D18 with the first lump of $600 I ever had my hands on, and would never part with it. When I found out this morning that Martin Guitars was following my guitar board on Pinterest, I became a little a bit excited! I was really bummed out to learn that a spammer instead has secured their brand, and their Pinterest URL: http://pinterest.com/martinguitars
Sure the spammers will be going after big brands first, but can anyone list any downsides for dealers to simply go to www.pinterest.com and secure their brand name? I sure can't think of any, and urge dealers to take care of this right away.
If you're a dealer and you need help on how to properly set up your Pinterest profile page (for maximum SEO value and page 1 dominance), email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter: georgenenni
