The Palm Beaches – Two local social media mavens will discuss one of today’s fastest-growing image/content sharing sites —Pinterest—
at 6:30 PM Tuesday November 27 at Senior Bridge, 2424 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton, Florida 33431.
The hour-and-a-half session, sponsored by Social Media Club Palm Beach County (@smcpbc) will teach small-to-medium-
sized businesses to understand and leverage Pinterest, the social media site that allows members to “pin” photos and images, repin and comment on them. Savvy businesses are seeing increased engagement and traffic from Pinterest, learning how to promote products and brands and drive sales. A whopping 69% of consumers who have visited Pinterest have purchased an item found there.
“Area innovators meet monthly to share and collaborate on social media and technology issues at Social Media Club Palm Beach County and the hotter-than-
hot Pinterest is so topical right now, “ explains club Board Member Tonya Scholz (@kNOwAGING)
