Now and again I write short post to highlight what I like to call “Social Genius Snapshots”. Today I would like to highlight the lovely Irma Zimmermann – our Pinterest Specialist Blogger. She is using Pinterest like a good queen of visual media should and I thought you might get a kick out of seeing how she is using this new hot-to-trot social network to not only promote herself as a professional – but also to showcase her work and use it as a beautiful portfolio of the work that she does.
My Top Three Things That I Love About Irma’s Pinterest Activities:
1. She has created original themed Boards and filled them with Pins
There is nothing worse than getting to a Pinterest account and seeing blank boards. I reckon Irma’s strategy is…”when I come across something that interests me, I will create Board to go with it and then work with it as I go along.” She doesn’t have the generic ones you normally see which people create as failsafe’s and hope they will find something to stick in there. Also – her Pins are so eye catching you want to follow her/her Boards.
2. She has Pinned blog posts
This is something I’ve noticed that more and more people are doing – you can create a Board for your own blog…or as a visual RSS feed of the kind of posts you like and want to remember from other businesses. As long as there is an image to go with a post you want to Pin – why not! She has also created handy Boards for infographics – which is really cool.
3. She has created a beautiful “Pinterest” Board
Anything you want to know about Pinterest, how its used, some tricks, etc…she has created a themed Board for the knowledge she has been gleeming while being a Pinterest blogger for us!
