Wondering if Pinterest can help you grow revenue? It can.
In Pinterest Power you'll find the tools, tips, and techniques to market your business, sell your products and expand your reach. Here is what Susan Koger, Co-founder of Modcloth, has to say about Pinterest Power:
"Pinterest Power is the ultimate guide for any small business owner hoping to leverage the Pinterest social platform to increase sales and brand awareness. Jason Miles and Karen Lacey answer the right questions for the busy entrepreneur or marketing leader looking to explore a Pinterest account for his or her business. The book details the most important aspects of launching a Pinterest strategy: basics of the platform, real-world examples from innovative brands, and strategic advice from experts in the field. There are powerful case studies from small companies such as Liberty Jane Clothing and BurdaStyle, the former seeing sales double after implementing a Pinterest strategy and the latter seeing the site refer over 25 percent of its traffic! The early adopters high-lighted in the book offer invaluable best practices that will provide a solid foundation for building your own Pinterest presence..."
[Susan should know - the Modcloth Pinterest account has over 2.2 million followers.]
Let me give you a quick overview of how Pinterest Power is unique:
First, we take you inside our small business numbers and explain how Pinterest impacted Liberty Jane Clothing. We share the before and after site traffic, revenue details, and clear examples of how we benefited from the power of Pinterest. This isn't social media theory; it's a collection of hard won principles and best practices. We explain how we actually use Pinterest to make money. You can verify that we use Pinterest by looking at our profile at pinterest.com/cinnamonmiles/.
Finally, we interview the Pinterest team and they share wisdom and insight on how brands should use Pinterest for maximum success. You won't find this information in any other book, or online interview. It's only available in Pinterest Power.
We've built this book as a detailed blueprint for effective marketing on Pinterest, with chapter after chapter of selling strategies, concepts, tips, and tactics all designed to get you launched successfully on this amazing new social media site.
If you need a Pinterest plan that is battle tested, proven to work in the real world of competitive marketing, and written by small business marketers for other small business marketers, then Pinterest Power is for you.
All the best on your Pinterest marketing efforts,
Co-founder of Liberty Jane Clothing

One of the business-popular-tech magazines (Inc or Fast Company or Wired) covered the previous books about Pinterest a few months before Pinterest Power came out, and the reviews were all a bit dismissive. At that time, I held on to my money as a result. It may well be that Pinterest itself has matured and those books were premature. YMMV. I have followed Jason's pins and blog for a while and I like his approach. Tested, responsible, pragmatic, proven.
The book is easy, straightforward, and thorough, and if you're serious about using Pinterest to generate traffic, leads, and sales, you will be able to learn a lot. It's WAY cheaper than any of the on-line education I've seen, and covers at least as much if not a great deal more. More accessible, IMO, and bathtub friendly in a way anything online is simply not.
I'm not completely happy with the explanation of how US Copyright law intersects with Pinterest (in short, the authors punted with an "IANAL" clause). IMO, businesses are much more likely to be the target of a copyright challenge, because we have (at least in the eyes of the prosecution) the money. Copyright law is not difficult.Read more ›
