Pinterest has been gaining following as the newest social media site for the past couple of years and has dedicated and growing following. Businesses are beginning to see this and are trying to work out how they can apply Pinterest to their business. For retail brands in particular, Pinterest is perfect as it allows brands to have another place to show off their items and attract new traffic to their website.
