Pinterest may be the perfect tool for letting potential guests know about your bed and breakfast. Ben Silbermann, Evan Sharp, and Paul Sciarra co-founded this website in March 2010. Millions of people use Pinterest to pick up new hobbies, find their style, and plan life’s important projects.
Pinterest has pins that are like handsome little bookmarks. Whenever you find something on the web that you want to keep, add it to Pinterest. Your newly minted Pin will be here whenever you need it, and will always link back to the site it came from.
Boards are where you organize your Pins, and you get to decide what your boards will be all about. This is a great way for bed and breakfast owners to get ideas about cooking, decorating, gardening, hospitality, and more! Plus this is your chance to post pictures of your bed and breakfast, including:
- The outside of your B&B
- Your rooms and bathrooms
- Your delicious breakfasts and recipes
- Your garden, pool, hot tub, or any other amenity
- Events such as weddings and music performances
- Your library of books, DVD collection, etc.
Really the sky is the limit as far as how many pins you want to post. The point is that potential guests will see your bed and breakfast and click to find out more about you from your website.
This is a huge and free marketing opportunity to use Pinterest! All it costs is the time it takes to share the pictures (your own and the millions of other pictures already on the Pinterest website)! Be sure to check out Bed and Breakfast Blogging’s very own Pinterest website!
