This infographic was created by Awareness Networks and it contains some great findings and strategies to help brands dominate Pinterest and Linkedin

Excerpt:

“In our newest white paper, Beyond the Big 3: Five Killer Strategies to Dominate LinkedIn and Pinterest, we build on concepts shared in Five Killer Strategies to Dominate Social Media’s Big 3: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.”

Pinterest & Linkedin are catching up to the big 3 social networks Twitter, Facebook and Youtube

Here are a few takeaways:

Strategy #1

Pinterest

**Register your profile on Pinterest Directories:

**WPin.org – based on specific interests

**Repinly.com – lists stats on Pinterests users

Linkedin

**Start a Linkedin group – they give an example where Civicventures, a non-profit started a group called “Encore Careers” for 50+ year-old adults to discuss issues of concern to them in a safe and spam-free enviornment.

1,500 people joined the group in a very short period of time 

This gives you an idea of what’s possible for your brand or group.

Strategy #2

Increase Content Engagement

Pinterest

**Aim to become the top pin-board on one or a few topics

They use the example of Whole Foods and how they used their pinboards to become a thought leader for recipes, reused and recycled items and green live.

Linkedin

**Be Unique! Use a video or appropriate profile modules to showcase your company
