Mr. Jackson would like attorneys to know that Pinterest alone is not a social media strategy. He uses a multi-faceted approach to interacting with potential clients online that involves an interconnected web of social media using a variety of contextual and audiovisual tools, one of which is Pinterest.
Pinterest allows you to create pinboards. You can style your pinboards around specific interests or topics. Then you can pin images, videos, photos, or anything with a visual element and add a short summary to give your pin some context. Other Pinterest users can re-pin your pins and like them. They can also comment on those pins. Like any social media site, it’s about the connections you can make to other Pinterest users. Mitch Jackson has some great ideas for lawyers.
