Pinterest is one of the fastest growing social networking websites. It acquired 10 million users in 9 months and recently they unveiled their newest feature, Place Pins. In this blog, we will explain you can utilize Pinterest and its “Place Pins” feature to promote your event and get maximum exposure.
- Pinterest added a new type of pin called Place Pins, enabling users to map out the locations of all the items they share on their pinboards. For example, if you pin a photo of your event or the artist performing in your event, you can also add the venue location to a map on your board. Creating a board of Place Pins is easy. Just select Add a map when you create a new board or Edit an existing board’s settings. After that, you can map all of your new and existing Pins on the board to help plan your next event.
If you have a list of favorite places to organize your events or a few locations that you always recommend to people, use Place Pins to showcase all of the venues in one single place!
- Use Pinterest Hashtag (#) to define words for search results. For example, if you want to be found under “California”, use “# California” or “# California event” in your event location description. Similarly you can also use @tag to mention any specific Pinterest user, regardless of whether they are following your board or not
- Making a Pinterest board and submitting event photographs. Make sure that the images you post are attractive in order to develop a strong following.
The old saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words” rings true when using Pintrest to supplement your event promoting efforts.
