Ok so I admit I am somewhat fond of Pinterest too.
Brought to you from the fine folks at shortstack’s socially stacked!
One of my favorite social platforms for discovering content and keeping up with social media news, trends and more, is Pinterest. Whenever I’m in need for some inspiration for an upcoming blog post or I want to find an infographic for our “Infographic of the Day” series, I check Pinterest first. – See more at: http://www.sociallystacked.com/2013/06/9-pinterest-accounts-every-social-media-marketer-should-follow/#sthash.3wOEt1GV.dpufSince Pinterest is such a great resource for me, I thought it would be fun to put together a list of my favorite accounts to follow. These nine Pinterest accounts are where I find the majority of the best content regarding social media. These are active pinners that I think every social media marketer can benefit from following.
Without further ado, here’s the list!
In my opinion, HubSpot is the industry standard when it comes to content marketing — they’re total pros! I like to follow their Pinterest account to get inspiration and keep up with new content marketing practices.
Mashable is the largest independent website dedicated to news for the “connected generation.” Their news, and the content they pin, is like a marriage of BuzzFeed and All Things Digital– it’s informative and entertaining! Follow Mashable on Pinterest to stay on top of all the latest popular memes and business news for your favorite social platforms.
DashBurst shares content that’s in the same vein as Mashable’s. In their words, it is, “Your guide to the web and social media.” They’re true to their word. Check out DashBurst’s Pinterest account for the latest in art, culture, business, tech and design.
I find myself re-pinning Sprout Social’s content regularly. The thing I like best about their Pinterest account is that their boards are organized and titled really well. They have an individual board for each social network, plus social media boards broken up by size of business: Enterprise, small business, startups and nonprofits.There is literally something for everyone here.
M2 Media Management is a social media management and maintenance agency from Atlanta, Georgia. I started following their pins when I first got started on Pinterest. They pin a lot, which is great! And everything M2 Media Management shares is quality and relevant to the interests of any social media marketer.
Mari Smith is the Queen of Facebook, hands down! I follow her on every other social network and she does not disappoint anywhere. Mari doesn’t pin as much as some of the other accounts I follow, but what she does share is almost always worth a repin. She’s always on top of the trends, especially when it comes to Facebook marketing.
Melonie Dodaro is another social media expert I recommend following on Pinterest. She’s Canada’s #1 LinkedIn Expert, as well as a social media speaker, trainer, author and founder of Top Dog Social Media, a social marketing agency. And did I mention, Melonie’s also an avid pinner?! One of the coolest boards she has is her “People to Pay Attention To” board which includes 91 pins of the best people to follow for tips and strategies on social media marketing business development, sales and marketing, branding and online marketing.
• Jay Baer
Most social media marketers are familiar with Jay Baer. He’s a hype-free social media strategy consultant social media keynote speaker and author. Most of what he pins is from from Convince and Convert, his social media blog (also definitely worth checking out). Follow Jay on Pinterest to stay on top of social media trends, news, tips and solid advice.
I had to include ShortStack, of course! Hey, I admit, I’m a little biased. If you browse through our nineteen boards, you’ll find tons of free social media resources, including: eBooks, PDF goodies, infographics, podcasts, videos and more. Our most popular boards are our “Social Media & SEO” and “Social Media News & Tips” boards. Follow these, and the rest of our seventeen boards, to discover awesome and helpful content to help with your business’s social media efforts — and for some insight into what goes on in our crazy (that is, crazy in a good way!) office!
