Pinterest has become one of the most frequently visited social media sites, and is among the top social media tools preferred by marketers.

And for good reason.

Marketing with Pinterest can yield impressive results, often beating Facebook by leaps and bounds when it comes to product sales.

And images shared to Pinterest have a much longer half-life than Facebook updates or tweets.

Research shows that the lag between pinning an image to Pinterest and visiting the website the image came from, can be up to 40 days!

This condensed and comprehensive course helps you take advantage of this powerful marketing tool by teaching you how to use Pinterest to its full potential.

Business owners, entrepreneurs, marketers, social media strategists, and students will all benefit from taking this course.
