For anyone who isn’t aware, 18 months ago we jumped on board with what is now the high flying, image-sharing community, Pinterest. You may have read Gemma’s blog many moons ago when we initially joined the world of Pinterest, but as the wonderful people on Pinterest are very interested in AC Silver we thought a revisit was in order.
So in more detail, what is Pinterest?
Well, Pinterest is a web and mobile app company that offers a visual discovery, collection, sharing, and storage tool. A Pinterest user creates and shares collections of visual bookmarks, known as ‘boards.’
Boards are created through the user selecting an image and pinning it to an existing or newly created board. Users save and share ‘pins’ (images) collected from a wide variety of resources, ‘pinning’ them onto boards based on a topic or interest of personal choice… the world is your oyster!
As of January 2015, Pinterest has a registered 44.5 million users worldwide.
What We Post at AC Silver
As a retailer, Pinterest provides AC Silver with a great opportunity to share images and videos of our stock from all different angles and perspectives. Silver or jewellery, all of our new items are pinned on to Pinterest, daily. From pint mugs to gemstone rings, cigarette cases to brooches, we have an extremely vast range of stock. Such a diverse and eclectic range of stock requires a vast amount of Pinterest boards; it is never quiet on the AC Silver Pinterest front!
Whether you are a silver collector or a jewellery fan, or maybe even both, our Pinterest profile offers you an instant array of images, without reams and reams of that text malarkey!
‘You may also like’
We have selected some of our own ACS boards we particularly enjoy, even if we say so ourselves!
To see is to believe:
To wrap things up…
Appreciating antique, vintage and contemporary silver and jewellery, there is a good chance you will enjoy the visually stimulating, sharing and exploration element that more or less makes Pinterest what it is. Pinterest was in fact created with collectors in mind, with one of Pinterest’s founders sharing his childhood bug collection!
Join us…(or should I say, enjoy sharing with us!?)
The AC Silver team would love to see you on the other side, for some good old interaction, sharing content relating to the industry we are so passionate about! Join us in our crusade to make the world aware of the diverse items offered by AC Silver (with a few fun pins of the staff to add the personal touch and a giggle).
I hope my brief insight into the world of Pinterest has been beneficial; maybe it has even whet your appetite! For more on Pinterest, I suggest you simply take it upon yourself to go and explore!
