Pinterest…Let’s get pinning!
You are probably thinking, why are you jumping on the bandwagon? Why does The V Foundation need a Pinterest? Well, let’s look at the facts.
When we post a quote from Jim Valvano on Twitter or Facebook, we get TONS of likes, re-tweets and more. On Jim Valvano’s birthday alone we had more than 329 re-tweets and 788 likes. Why not create a Pinterest board with these quotes and help spread the word to the newest generation about what Jim Valvano stood for?
When we post a status or tweet about a sports event, our current fans and followers comment and reply a lot. During the NCAA tournament, our mentions on Twitter increase by more than 100% than on days with no college basketball games.
Yes, we have decided to join Pinterest but we aren’t jumping on the bandwagon, we are making a strategic choice to embrace our fans and followers. So, who wants to follow us?
