It allows us to curate images from across the web that really speak to who we are as a company, images that reflect our core values and essentially communicate the essence of who we are.

Caring about the community and the environment

Promoting healthy eating and education to our stakeholders

Selling the highest quality organic and natural foods available

Creating ongoing win-win partnerships with our suppliers
Niche board topics allow for a target audience
(upcycling, repurposing materials, Christmas, etc.)

Users can follow individual boards associated to their interest
Created niche boards to target audiences
1 Don't post someone else's picture without citing it
copyright infringement

2 Don't create unorganized boards
stresses followers

3 Don't forget about spammers,
usually high pins with irrelevant topic relation

4 Don't repost images from Google directly
gives credit to the original owner of the picture

5 Don't pin 40 images an hour
we need to know your true inspirations

6 Don't ignore the descriptions
people want to know the back story and Pinterest picks up on key phrases

7 You don't have to follow everyone that follows you,
this is out of inspiration
this isn't Facebook

8 Don't post pics too big or too small
hard to see
can't be enjoyed
unlikely to be repinned

9 Don't repost screen shots from Twitter or Facebook
each network has a purpose
picture quality becomes grainy
Huffington Post's 9 things a pinner should
never do
Supplemental resources for users (videos, infographics)

Gathering ideas for product concepts or inspiration
