Many organisations are finding the internet to be invaluable in connecting with their current customers and showcasing their work. What’s more, taking advantage of social media and other online platforms is a cost-effective means of capturing a world of potential clientele. One site which we, and other businesses in the construction industry, have found to be particularly worthwhile is Pinterest.
Pinterest is essentially a virtual pinboard which lets you organise and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organise their favourite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by others which makes it a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
Some of the benefits we believe you can gain from using Pinterest for business include:
Aside from its benefits for businesses, Pinterest is also great for anyone looking to renovate or build a home. Our clients often go through hundreds of magazines, books and websites, and print out everything that remotely interests them. After they’ve narrowed it down, they will bring all of their designs to us or other architects/builders who can advise on the possibilities of implementing a certain style, like looking at if that sink or kitchen counter can realistically work in their house. Rather than printing out truckloads of information, we recommend using sites like Pinterest which let homeowners save their design plans in one space.
