Although the gentlemen in the room might not admit it, the team atJuno Web Design have gone a little Pinterest crazy, why? Because it is the most incredible social site at the moment. Since it's launch in March 2010, Pinterest has been one of the fastest growing social sites ever and is growing at an astounding rate. Based on visuals and using your own personal "pin boards", individuals and companies create themed boards around their personal interests, likes, services, clients and general lives. It is a beautiful site to look at and people can literally spend hours looking and re-pinning items to their own boards.
Here are some incredible stats about Pinterest:
Pinterest is the new leading traffic referral generator, accounting for 3.6% of referred traffic.
After 2 years, Pinterest has 10.4 Million users which is growing every day.
Over 80% of pins are re pinned from other boards.
80% of users are female which is great for retail.
30% of Pinterest users are aged 25-34.
Pinterest is a great marketing tool for top brands.
The average time spent on Pinterest is 1 hour 17 minutes compared to 36 minutes on twitter.
The top interests for users in the UK are blogging resources, crafts, web stats and SEO.
Over 1 in 5 Facebook users are connected to Pinterest and use it on a daily basis.
As you can see, Pinterest is a very powerful way of generating traffic and interest to personal and company websites. You will see many retail companies offering pins of products with prices and descriptions. It is also a very visually pleasing site, offering high quality pictures which seem to keep the feel of the site high-end.
Being followers of trends and technologies, Juno are currently setting up their own Pinterest boards, you can see them here, follow them, see what projects we're working on and portfolios of our clients.
The only problem is, it is a tad addictive.
