A while back, I received a question from a lawyer looking for an expert witness in a divorce proceeding. The basic question was, “Can you make money on Pinterest?”
Well, isn’t that a bit like asking, “Can you make money with a blog?” or even, “Can you make money opening a restaurant?” In all three cases the answer is OF COURSE! But, it’s certainly not a given.
So much of online marketing seems to be a mystery to many, and the recently published Social Media Marketer’s Survey by Social Media Examiner reveals that Pinterest in particular remains a mystery even for the pros.
Since it’s a great way to connect with friends, fans, and the world at large, I thought I’d answer the question via a Facebook Live broadcast. Go easy, it’s my first one broadcasting live from desktop. 🙂
