If you have not heard of Pinterest by now, it seems like you live in a world without internet or on another planet. Pinterest is the most rapidly growing social media network these days. It beats Instagram and Facebook with ease. Since 2010 Pinterest has grown to approximately 70 million users and it continues to grow by leaps and bounds.
If you are a photographer, you might think why should I care about Pinterest? The answer is simple: you own the most powerful Pinterest tool – photographs! In the photography world the truth is, it’s not 100% about how good your photos are, but also who knows you. Pinterest provides the best way to get your photos seen and shared by millions of users in no time. You can pin the images from the web and re-pin other users’ photos. Just one small re-pin could become a huge growing snowball which would spread your photo all over the web. Thus, Pinterest is a great tool to give your photography brand a big boost.
