Pinterest is one of the hottest trends in social networking. You don't want to overlook this as you use Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or others. Because Pinterest is primarily visual, it can be a great way to expose more people to the value of manufactured housing.
One, pick homes that are nicely landscaped to pin.
Two, use homes that have been properly staged or decorated and show those interior photos as well.
Three, in your profile, use your face, not a logo. People want to connect with a person first. Many companies today want a 'face' for their marketing!
Four, cross link your Pinterest page(s) with your other social networks.
Five, think about your terminology! If you use a word like 'mobile home' – because of the high SEO value, make it a teaching moment if it is in fact a HUD Code manufactured home built since June 15, 1976. For example, let's say you were using a residential style manufactured home as a pin, like the photo shown below.
You might say something like this:
"This is not your grandma's 'mobile home!'. In fact is it a modern manufactured home, which looks and lives as good or better than conventional houses, is greener by design and can cost 25% or more less."
Pinterest is a tool that marketers of factory built homes need to be using in their business to public out reach. But make it subtle, showing other interests.
When you do so, you will connect with more people and will have more of an influence on the public at large.
As they say on Pinterest, "Happy Pinning!" #
