Pinterest can be good for many but not for all. As many people have already noticed, it's not directed for everyone. It's more on the food, fashion, and any other niche in between. However, it does provide you with good backlinks. So if you want your site to get more SEO presence then go for it.

If you are doing it for SEO, It is to me A MUST!! It is useful to get traffic and back-links as well.

I am still confused with the statement that pinterest provides you with good backlinks. But as I know it is a nofollow site so you will not get the benefit of those backlinks as far as PR is concerned. But this is true that you definitely gain good amount of traffic for your site.

Pinterest is one of the new social media sites many people are joining to the same. These are so effective social media sites where we can get more traffic to the website.

Indeed, Pinterest has come up as a handy tool for marketing startup businesses. It is a great way to inform audience the list of products and services you sell. It is also considered as a handy tool to boost traffic to a website and more importantly convert them into sales. You will be required to consider different options, before continuing with promotional campaign. Use images that are authentic and not copied from another website. Insist on re-pinning images from other users on Pinterest. You even have the option to collaborate your other social network accounts. When you “pin” something on Pinterest, simultaneously you can send out a Tweet.

I personally don't like pinterest for marketing as it never got me any increase in traffic also.

1. Pinterest is a great way to promote and market your business online for free.
2. Pinterest is also a great way to showcase your newest products and ideas.
3. Pinterest can be a great resource when hiring new employees. It is very important that new employees fit in and work well with current employees.
4. Many businesses are using Pinterest for inspiration. The social media site is a great way to stay up to date with trends, generate new business ideas, and even find new potential business opportunities.
5. Use Pinterest to generate website traffic and increase sales by having giveaways of branded items on your Pinterest page. Have a daily theme pin that your business shares and asks its followers to participate by pinning their answers back to you in pictures.

As per my personal view, pinterest is also kind of a social networking site in the visual form to pin pictures to pin-boards. It offers several benefits to the business and its people like it helps in extremely fast development,in sharing content easily,etc. It is highly effective in nature and helps the business in creating pages for promoting their businesses.

Yes it is but you need would need to build your profile first and then post at specific times of the day where many of your target market is active. It requires a bit of research but its all worth it once you succeed at Pinterest.

That, of course, assumes that your target audience is active at all on Pinterest. Not all target demographics are represented there. If the people you are trying to reach are not using Pinterest to start with, Pinterest will be of no use to you in reaching them.
