#MarketingTitbits – Marketing Lessons From Mourinho, Pinterest for SMEs and a ‘video puzzle’!

1. How small business can use Pinterest

If you haven’t heard about Pinterest by now, it is surely only a matter of time. We brought this great social media tool to your attention over a year ago now and since then it has gone from strength to strength, moving away from its humble beginnings as an American housewives’ favourite to a global social media powerhouse attracting the attention of all the big brands.

As of February, the site had over 25 million users and companies with Facebook and Pinterest brand pages report that Pinterest followers spend up to 15 times more time on their page than Facebook followers.

Pinterest is not only for the big brands and corporates though. SMEs can also benefit greatly from getting to grips with the platform.

To help you get started, we found this simple, easy to understand article on Forbes.com that gives small businesses a great start point.
