Since Pinterest grew into one of the most popular sharing networks, there has been a need for a platform to go hand in hand with it. That is where Pinerly comes in. This is a dashboard that will give you the ability to follow other users, un-follow, and maintain your desired focus on your personal Pinterest account.
One of the best aspects of Pinerly is the way you can set up your “pins” or schedule a pin. This gives you the ability to pay closer attention to your stats. The more informed you are with your statistics the better it is for you to modify your “pinning” to better meet your needs. You will be able to find out fairly quickly what is actually working and benefitting you and what is just above a waste of your time.
The downside to Pinerly is it is not yet open to the public. For now, you will be placed on a waiting list (see link below). However, if you have any of the other popular social networks such as Facebook or Twitter, you can use those to get you moved up the waiting list a bit faster.
It’s interesting, although Pinterest is extremely popular; the site itself has not even reached its peak in popularity yet. More people are finding out about the site but it still is not a “household” name like Facebook and Twitter. Users should be warned, whether you are going on the site out of mere curiosity or you have stumbled upon it you might become highly addicted.
For those of you that do not know what Pinterest is, it is a website that is strictly for visual bookmarking. You can follow people with similar interests and ‘pin’ their images on your own pinboard. Once you receive your invitation to the site you are ready to go. It only takes a few minutes to set up and you can begin saving your visual bookmarks and gaining popularity yourself.
Using a Pinerly account alongside your Pinterest account can be beneficial as long as you have a decent strategy or plan. Without a plan in mind, you just might find yourself “pinning” things that are not relevant to your business which in turn could cause you to lose valued customers.
