Read many time about it on the net. Many users said that it is a good marketing strategy but never personally used it.

Default Does Pinterest Is Effective?

There are several reports that Pinterest became 3rd biggest social networking site followed by facebook and twitter. So definitely, the presence on Pinterest will help to promote the business we are running. Just like other social networking site Pinterest offers business owners a wide range of activities to market the business.

Here all you will need interactive and informative images.
>> Design and post clear and beautiful images from websites
>> Create pin board that should reflect the work & process.
>> Pinterest loves infographics
>> Pictures / Images of product & services
>> More images, images & images.

Hope, it would be helpful.

We have had some success from Pinterest, but not as much as I had initially hoped.

its Free to create, that alone should be worth it, but I think over time even if you are able to draw even one customer in it was worth the time to set up.

yes! I have tried pinning my first made infographics in Pinterest and it was awesome and do you know that Pinterest is currently on the number 3 spot in the list of top social media networks today? The fact that this site was just launch for not quite a long time yet.
