Whole Foods, Real Simple, West Elm and other creative companies were just labeled the top brands on Pinterest by Mashable. Their qualifications included the following:
- Pinning from various sources rather than one specific site.
- Repinning from within the site to engage with others – repinning is one of the most social activities on Pinterest and it’s how any user really builds his/her network of followers.
- Creating at least a few boards that cover a broad range of interests, rather than maintaining a single board devoted to one topic.
It’s not too late to join their ranks - here are a few ways to get your pinboard going, and maybe even viral if you are lucky.
