What's Your Best Pinterest Board Idea?

Pinterest actionsWhat's Your Best Pinterest Board Idea?

We've mentioned before that it took us awhile to buy into the whole idea of Pinterest being useful for us.  We know Pinterest is now rolling out business accounts and we can convert our personal accounts over.

We've enjoyed the fact that non-agents have been repinning, commenting & liking various pins we've put up.  It's outperforming our FB business page for consumer engagement.

We've found particularly useful the ability to use Pinterest as a means of creating a reference board.  For Warren County we've created boards that link all the public school websites, another for local government sites.  We have community boards & post our AR blog community posts to them.  Things to Do?  That's a gimme.  Sometimes when we want to reference one of our AR posts it's actually easier to go to the Pinterest board, find the photo and click back to AR.

New ideas keep popping up for reference boards.  Earlier this week it was creating links to common HOA Management companies.  This afternoon a spark hit to create a board and link to the major new construction home builders that serve our county.  A half hour of work pulling all the websites, doing a PIN to a New Construction Homes board and now it's handy for us to use.

And just like sending a blog post link to a home buyer or seller, we can do the same thing with a Pinterest Board.  Have a buyer interested in Mason homes?  Sure, here's our Pinterest Board on Mason communities that links to 31 different community blog posts, and the number will grow.

Now we may not be using much of the social interaction part of Pinterest (only so many hours in the day...post, FB, tweet, linked in, pin....what shall it be??).  But the easy reference of Pinterest makes it a valuable tool even with nothing else.

So what's your best idea for a Pinterest board?

To Pin, or Not To Pin....I think we already answered that question!
