Pinterest: A Video Journey

Week #3 — March 19, 2012

The Kony video didn’t really get any traction so I decided to play with some other approaches in order to maximize the video marketing potential of Pinterest. In the process I came to a pretty obvious realization.

Also, I was testing out a new interactive video player/platform call Viewbix check it out and tell me what you think.



Week #2 — March 12, 2012

I was still on the waiting list after a week  and learned a quick way to work around the waiting list is to have someone send you an invite. So, I asked a friend and then within minutes I became Pinterest legit. So my video journey continues.

Please look at the video to see what I did next. If you don’t see a video below click here to watch it.



The date is Saturday, March 3, 2012 and I am about to become trendy by trying to join Pinterest. I say trying to join because I am now on the waiting list (see picture).

 

So, I am on the waiting list… how long will it take for me to become legit… a prize if you guess it right!

For those who haven’t been swept in by the latest trend in social media, Pinterest is (by their own description):

“… a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.”

It is basically a new way of sharing your favorite images and videos with the world without sounding like it is all about you.

And the most common stat associated is this: “Pinterest drives more referral traffic than Google+, YouTube, and LinkedIn combined” … Pretty Amazing!

So, please come and explore with me as I dabble in the web’s latest social media wonderland … all updates will follow below in order of when they happened.
