You guys… Pinterest isn’t just for crafty moms anymore!
I tend to turn to Pinterest when I need a brain break or when I need to make an interior decorating decision – looking up recipes, party ideas, fashion, etc. It can serve as a great way to shift gears before going back to a professional task. But the next time you are on Pinterest, try typing the following keywords into the search bar:
- marketing inspiration
- marketing trends
- top marketing campaigns
I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found. Not to be compared with academic content like HBR, a quick Pinterest search can give you a screen full of visuals to spark new ideas. Don’t believe me? Here are three examples I found with just a few clicks. I will be heading back for more!
- 9 Graphic Design Trends for 2015 – I am NOT a graphic designer so I always need direction in this area. This infographic gave me a quick overview of trends to think about the next time I work with a designer.
- Social Media Happy Hour – This is targeted at Realtors, but I don’t see why it can’t apply to others. We’re all struggling to use social media without allowing it to use us. This is one approach to consider.
- How Colors Influence People – There are tons of color charts on Pinterest, but I like the way this graphic breaks down some top brand logos. It is both educational and good brand inspiration.
I started a Pinterest board called “Biz Smarts” to collect what I find (find it here). I’d love to know what resources you have found as well!
