    Isn’t it impressive that 90% of pinners use Pinterest to make purchase decisions? I think that shows the power Pinterest has and why everyone should be taking advantage of it now. It’s also great to learn from the big companies that are doing Pinterest the right way. We should all “steal” from them ;).

    • Yes, Robert, we need to pay closer attention to how the bigger brands are executing Pinterest strategies. There is so much to be gained from using the platform!
