RE-Visiting Pinterest for Business

On January 23, 2012 I wrote about using Pinterest for business. In that brief time Pinterest has leaped ahead to be the third most searched site and the third fastest growing site after Facebook and Twitter. Media pundits will have you believe that its just a bunch (a very LARGE bunch. Smile) of women sharing pictures and recipes. But surprise, surprise there are men on the site as well. The top men users were recently announced.

Here's where it gets really interesting all manner of apps and third party sites have been set up to piggyback off pinterest. I recently signed up for

Pintics on Youtube

Businesses are finding creative ways to use pinterest as evidenced by the Pinterest 2012 Nissan Altima Reveal Contest on Pinterest. .



Other businesses are using pinterest to show off design skills, real estate viewings and howtos, example make a wire ring.

Want to win perks for using Pinterest. Now you can based on your "Pininfluence". In pinpuff's own words what that means

What is Pinfluence?

Pinfluence is measure of your popularity, influence and reach on Pinterest. It also decides monetary value of your pins & traffic your pins generate. We are doing some really cool stuff around Pinterest and first 1000 beta users will get exclusive invite to try out our experiments with Pinterest well before it is opened for all.

Another site to measure your influence is which provides analytics and a means to measure your influence assigning a score to your influence.

My current score is 36.1, which surprised me because I'm not on Pinterest that often (couple times a week). According to them my influence is very good even thought I don't have hundreds or thousands of followers. which is a dashboard for Pinterest. has jumped in and created a pinterest icon for your email signature.

The takeaway is to look at how your business can be showcased on Pinterest especially if photos are a part of your making strategy. Pinterest may offer more flexibility to get your message before your market than Facebook.

I'm curious as to how you're using Pinterest. Leave a comment telling us what works for you.

3 Ways to Have A Successful Week!

As the CEO of your business, I think it's most important to evaluate and know the results you're looking for each week.  That won't happen if you don't have clarity in your business and if you haven't identified the "to-do" items that will support your goals.

So, I'd like to share 3 things that you can do to have a successful business week every week:

1. Gain Clarity on what you want to experience for the week financially.  Now divide that figure by the average cost of your service or product and it will give you how many customers you'll need. Stay focused on that number and write down at least 5 ways to reach your goal.

2. Identify 3-5 new contacts to connect with each week (daily M-F).  Create a script in advance and remember that if they have a business allow them to share what they do as well.  Discuss ways you can help one another and directly ask if he or she could use your product or service at this time.

2. Review your schedule every Sunday evening.  If there are any business to-do items, appointments or activities that don't support you meeting your  overall business vision or goals for the week - eliminate them.

Here's to your business success!

I believe that effective outsourced accounting, taxation, financial management and consulting is more than a service, it is a relationship. We build that relationship with each client by learning about his or her business process and culture. Then we design a service package that meets the unique needs of the business. If the client has an in-house accounting staff, our team can supplement and support their work. If needed, we can become the in-house accounting department.

Competition is Nothing

Here are some important things that you should remember about competition:

1) No One is Perfect. Your competition makes mistakes, and runs into problems, issues, and obstacles, just like you do.

2) There’s Room Enough For All Of Us To Be Successful. Don’t believe for one minute that the success of someone else, somehowcompromises your potential to be successful. This is simply not true.

3) What God Has For You, Is For You. No one can take it away from you. It’s all a part of a greater plan and purpose foryour life. No one can steal it from you, and only you can fulfill yourlife’s purpose.

4) Stay focused on your core vision/mission/passion, and you will always stand out from your competition. Why? Because you’re busy being the best that you can be.

If you’re an entrepreneur, and wondering how you can stand out from your competitors, or simply be competitive with companies or individualswho may have more resources than you do, remember these tips:

- Offer High value

-Offer great customer service

-Solve an existing problem

-Offer solutions and/or convenience to your customers in a unique way.

-Be accessible.

Remember, Competition is Nothing.
