I downloaded a couple of Pinterest guides and read this one first. By the time I finished this book I had decided that Pinterest was the last site I wanted to devote time to. The author doesn't venture far enough afield from her own interests - kids, etc. - to give an appealing vision of what you can do with Pinterest. And the initial pages of hard sell for her money-making let-me-teach-you-how-to-use-the-site endeavors were definitely a turn-off.

Luckily I had also downloaded Pinterest - Build Your Brand, Your Tribe, Your Sales (2nd Ed) which is much more fully fleshed out and gives a much better sense of what you can do with the site. If I start pinning it will be because of that book, not this one.

A more specific beef with this book is that while the author touches on the copyright issues that are a huge problem with Pinterest, she unfortunately doesn't seem to understand copyright basics. It's not "fine art" that is copyright protected - it's everyone's creations - my photos, your photos, etc. I'm not sure which is worse - don't mention the copyright elephant in the room, or to give incorrect advice about it.

Pinterest Savvy changed the way I create, edit and cultivate my Pinterest content (e.g. boards, my pins and my re-pins). I am more confident and organized in my overall strategy professionally as a blogger. The minor changes I made to my Pinterest approach after reading Melissa's book increased my followers by 20% (1000s) within 12 days of reading the book. I am more excited than ever about building my blog readership and community through Pinterest. Oh, lastly, Ms. Taylor writes extremely well. Concise and easy to read. Best time & money you'll spend on understanding and using Pinterest as a business tool.

I was provided with a free copy of the Kindle version of this book and asked to read it with the hopes that I would provide a review which I am doing here. I don't have any connection to the author or publisher. I happened to be looking for a book on the topic of Pinterest, so it was good timing. I am a mentor for a group of 100+ women who are in the process of learning more about social networking strategy -- including Pinterest -- as it relates to on-line business marketing. This book is one that would be very helpful to someone who is new to Pinterest and new to the concept of business branding through Pinterest. There was some new-to-me information that is helpful and that I will certainly apply, but most of the book was on a basic or beginner level. I appreciated the author's clear explanation of branding and how it applies to Pinterest because this is something that confuses many people who tend to think of branding solely in terms of a logo or slogan. For this reason, the e-book will be very helpful for mentoring purposes.

If you've been using Pinterest for any length of time, there will be few surprises here. This is perfect for Pinterest newbies. If you are seeking advanced information about Pinterest, this is probably not the book for you, but it is not without merit and is easy to read and comprehend. I have not explored the links that are provided within the e-book, but some of them do look interesting in terms of advancing to the next level of Pinterest how-to. This e-book was clearly written as a gateway introduction to those links, but it is not necessary to click on them to gain the benefit of the basic information contained within this e-book.

Great info for the beginning nuts and bolts. But if you're looking for more in depth info on why lots of followers translates to income--nope.

And note to author, several typos so you should fix those, plus some odd spacing issues.

Follow people who pin items that interest you.
