A relative newcomer, Pinterest, has taken the internet by storm as the fastest-growing social network. If you are not already familiar with the site, Pinterest is widely used by engaged couples, and is a very powerful outlet for Pros to showcase your amazing work and creative ideas!

Sign up your business to start creating themed pinboards, and adding pins of your event photos and videos to your account.

Pinterest is also a great tool to drive traffic to your business website, but will only be successful if you appropriately tag all your photos. Make sure to tag all images back to your website to ensure you get your well-deserved credit for your work as they go viral! Keep in mind that to avoid any copyright issues, attribute any photographers whose work you use so they also get recognition for their work.
