So people want to see it, they're gonna see it.one of the things that you and I had talked about before is Pinterest still drives so much traffic, compared to all the other platforms that have really shut it off, for the sake of the pay-to-play. Pinterest still is an environment where you can just do organic marketing, you don't have to necessarily go into the pay to play.Our goal is to make Pinterest marketing accessible for everybody in a way that does not confuse them in a way that does not overwhelm them but gets them straight to the heart of what they need to know, as well as keeps them informed.Guest Links:Simple Pin Media: https://www.simplepinmedia.com/ Connect with Kate on Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/simplepinmedia/Learn More:Check Out All of My Podcast Episodes: https://podcast.nealschaffer.comJoin My Digital First Mastermind: https://nealschaffer.com/membership/ Learn about My Fractional CMO Consulting Services: https://nealschaffer.com/cmoDownload All of My Free EBooks: https://nealschaffer.com/freebies/Subscribe to my YouTube Channel: https://youtube.com/nealschaffer

You might be using Pinterest for yourself — for inspiration, to catalogue looks, poses and styles you love and might like to emulate.
