  2. Charissa, Pinterest is so new that we are all newbies learning together. That is what we did tonight on Eventprofs. I hope you’ll find this summary useful.

  3. Thanks for including my Pinterest article, Adrian!  I have been so intrigued by it that I included a lesson on Pinterest in my “How to Market a Seminar with Social Media” online course.

    There are just so many possibilities to have fun with this!
