How to Use Social Media For Business and Pleasure

The Importance of A/B Testing
Whether your primary goal is building brand awareness, driving qualified traffic, nurturing prospects, driving leads or increasing revenue, one thing is certain – you should be testing. In today’s complex, digital world, marketers are always looking for an edge while getting their messages heard and testing has become an integral part of the strategy.

You never know what’s going to work with your audience until you test it. When I complete an A/B test with surprising results, it makes me want to run out and test everything. And that’s what everyone should do…test everything!
Pinterest for Marketers
Have you ever spotted something on Pinterest, whether it’s the perfect piece of furniture to decorate your home, or a trendy coat for winter, and you can’t figure out how to find it online, or even the name of it?
Well, now Pinterest has solved that problem. They recently announced a new visual search tool that allows users to search items within the site without typing in text. When you see an object in a scene, you can hit the little magnifying glass in the top right corner and drag your mouse to put a box around the item of interest, and Pinterest will not only show you pins with similar items, but if it’s in Pinterest’s database, they will also provide you with the exact name and where your selection can be purchased. Pinterest has over 100 million users who have posted 50 billion images, or “pins,” on the site. The company says it has indexed roughly a billion of those images for the new search engine; over time, it aims to index them all.
