This is what happens when we leave the art kid in charge of blog topics for a day! Yes, yes, yes we all want to sell laptops and unwanted gadgets to upgrade to the latest tech, and we frequently choose devices based on things like business applications and detailed specs. But what most users want is an all-round device that lets them breeze through a budget meeting by day and play with social media by night. Enter – our new obsession with Pinterest over the morning coffee!
We buy laptops and smartphones to keep our business going, minimise e-waste and help you guys boost funds. Doing the whole sell for cash thing means we need to keep on top of things like trending social media, the latest gadgets (both real and imaginary!) and all the areas of life where technology treads. Well, that’s our excuse for currently being obsessed with Pinterest, anyway!
Our top Pinterest fan is also an avid reader of the Huffington Post, so here are some facts and figures from their U.S website covering the global spread of Pinterest.
- The average Pinterest user spends 15.8 minutes on the site daily (today we did 20!)
- Almost 70% of users are women.
- 1.36 million people visit Pinterest ever day.
- There are plenty of brands represented on Pinterest, but pushy sales stuff is frowned upon. We use our Pinterest wall to highlight new releases, old favourites and fun stuff we come across in the office and just really want to share!
- Around 80% of Pinterest images are repins, so get cracking and upload something new today!
- 50% of Pinterest users have kids.
- Pinterest clone websites include Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters, J-Linterest (hilarious!), Pinspire, We Heart It (for teens), Gentlemint (for blokes) and design:related (for any design fans).
We’ve left our Pinterest board in the capable hands of Pinterest’s biggest fan, so be sure to visit us at Pinterest.com/Money4Machines once we’re up and running. We’ll be covering things like what we buy, how to sell iPads, how to sell cameras for top rates, what fresh tech is on the way and probably some funny pictures of Office Cat and her meme buddies!
