Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want an introduction to Pinterest and to expanding your business with the aid of this social media tool, this is a well-designed, accessible book for basic concepts. I liked the physical design of the book for clarity. Good graphics, checks, tips, light and dark print so it's well formatted.

I bought several copies of this book to use for a tutorial for a client who has a clothing design business who knows nothing about pinterest and wants help setting up her profile, naming and organizing her boards, pinning images, following leaders in her business, transporting images from design websites, blogs, magazine sites and repinning others' images.

What I liked about the book is that it is written for the beginner and it has tips for marketing your business so you get two for the price of one. I have been using Pinterest for about 6 months for my interior design classes that I teach. I use pinterest to catalog and store images which I use in class. I have 40,000 images stored on Pinterest, and over 6000 followers who follow my boards, but I still learned some essential concepts reading this book as I never read any how-to's on Pinterest. I found some gaps in my knowledge of Pinterest which this book filled in.

I've been stumbling along through trial and error, but when you are being paid to teach someone, felt I needed to find out what I hadn't discovered on my own. And there were some key activities this book taught me. It was helpful to have a couple of copies so I could send the student home with the book for homework help as she sets up her boards until our next session.

The author is active on Pinterest. You can check out her profile on Pinterest. She has a board on this book and pinterest tips.

Format: Paperback
A nice, short book on navigating a fairly simple site and the way it can help those seeking to increase sales, this Dummies guide fulfills its aims well. Carr spends part of the book giving you details on how to use Pinterest and the latter half pointing up the benefits and pitfalls of a strategy that uses the site to build your brand, market your products, and build a following.

With the growing power of Pinterest, an excellent guide for the uninitiated, although there have been minor tweaks in appearance since publication as with any popular website.
