Black Box Social Media has released a report available at their official blog site titled "How to Use Pinterest to Brand Your Local Business".

"Not every social media platform is going to work for every business," says Black Box Social Media CEO Tom Bukacek, who is also co-author of the upcoming book "Marketing Miracles" with Dan Kennedy due out this Fall. "For some businesses, LinkedIn doesn't make any sense. For others, Pinterest may be a very wise choice. This report will assist you in figuring out whether or not your local business should use Pinterest as part of their social media marketing plan."
On of the tips reveled in this post focuses on what types of pictures you can post.
"Often focusing on how your product makes the user feel rather than the product itself can be an effective way of creating an interest in your product in an indirect way," continues Mr. Bukacek. "But this doesn't exactly mean you should never post an 'advertising' picture of your product. How often; what ratio of non-advertisement photos to self-promotional shots should you pin in order to keep your customers' interest? This report will answer these valuable questions for marketers."
