Pinterest Targets Social Selling

Bitmenu was designed for use with social media.  Our original idea was to deliver great content to any device through any web-enabled platform.  Since Sellers can place Bitmenu links anywhere, we have see sales through e-commerce sites, blogs, email, YouTube, as well as social networks.  We have provided easy tools to sell through the social streams of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest.

Of these excellent networks, Pinterest provides a compelling sales environment for Bitmenu Sellers to consider.  Sellers can organize boards of offers that persistently give their followers opportunities to purchase and encourage their network of followers and others to "re-pin", comment and buy as well.

Here's an example Pinboard featuring some excellent lessons from Acoustic Guitar magazine, available for sale via Bitmenu links.

To get the most out of Pinterest, consultant Jeff Bullas has written a concise blog post, 10 Creative Ways to Market on Pinterest that should be read by everyone selling through social media.

UPDATE:  An authoritative report was put out by All Things Digital, about why e-commerce is head over heels for Pinterest.
