My Interest with Pinterest

I first learned about Pinterest through my mentor, Sir Jomar Hilario and got hooked with it. Pinterest is your virtual pinboard where you can organize anything you find in the web that is of your interest like inspirational quotes that makes your day, food recipes that you are planning to prepare for your family, how to make different kinds of crafts to keep your sanity of taking care of your kids , home decor ideas for your dream home, your favorite books and even different kinds of information on how to work from home as a Virtual Assistant.

For me, Pinterest have great advantages to entrepreneurs  especially those in the small and medium enterprises and online sellers. These are the following:

1) It’s a great venue for them to showcase their beautiful products and services.

2) Creates links to people who have great interest with their products and services which can be their potential clients.

3) Get to know more their market for effective strategies and promotions.

Now my personal interest with Pinterest is this. Since most entrepreneurs are so busy planning and finding means to grow their businesses, they have no time to focus on tasks such as marketing and promotions. I have learned from different sources on the topic of Entrepreneurship that at present, one effective way of businesses to reach  their market is through their online presence. Meaning, they have to have their own websites and sign up with the different social media available. This is where the help of a Virtual Assistant (VA) comes in. They can hire VAs to take care of those tasks such as creating websites, signing up for the different social media, marketing and promoting. This is where I can be of service to entrepreneurs and business minded people.

With the Philippines experiencing growth in economy and the stock market, I am hopeful that Virtual Assistants will not only be in demand to foreign clients but to Fil;ipino entrepreneurs and businessmen as well.
