So, what did I learn from today’s podcast? Easy. Ralph loves movies!! LOL!
Genuinely, though, Fred and I adore Cynthia Sanchez and you guys did a bang up job of nailing her with a record number of Pinterest questions. Fab podcast!
I still say there are businesses that should not be pinning. Funeral directors, morticians, and necrologists come to mind. 😉
So funny you said funeral directors – when we had Alisa Meredith on we were also talking about Pinterest and she said that funeral homes were having success with things like inspirations quotes and nice photography. Although I think the morticians should probably stick to the basement…
I LOVE Alisa to pieces, mind you, but …
How inspirational can you really get about death??!! I can see it all now …
“Inspiration for your expiration”. LOL!
I suddenly feel a poem coming on. 😉
LOL, I’m all ears 🙂
Okay, I’m game. LOL!
Picture this as an ad (or maybe a social media post):
If death is knocking on your door
Before you’re laid to rest
Take some time to get inspired
With all our pins on Pinterest
Don’t miss the pins of puffy clouds
And stunning shades of sunset
The coffin pins are lovely, too
And urns pinned up in vignette
Don’t let this solemn time in life
Deter you from inspiration
Enjoy our boards on PInterest
Before your expiration
Wishing you a beautiful journey to the other side!
Melanie you crack me up to no end. I think you may have missed your calling. Good thing you’re our poet laureate! It suits you perfectly.
A giggle is the goal, Carol Lynn. Give me a [poetic] prompt and I’m on it!
I’m still basking in the glow of my new designation. 🙂
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to have some fun once in a while. Life seems to be void of fun most of the time. Unless, of course, you’re Ralph. He seems to be having a pretty good time. 🙂
Posted a poem for you in the comment box. 😉
Hope it doesn’t offend anybody. It was all in jest (and created in under ten minutes).
Hope you’re having a sensational Saturday!
Great podcast Carol and Ralph. Been a fan of Cynthia for a long time. Hearing her on the Social Media Examiner podcast is why I started using Pinterest in the first place.
As for scheduling pins. I’ve been trying out Tailwind Apps scheduler and for the most part really impressed. Also have started testing Ahalogy’s scheduler as well.
Ah, good to know! I get why Pinterest may not want everyone scheduling. It could get super cluttered, especially if people take the usual approach of multi-sharing. But it would be super helpful for marketing. We love Cynthia too, after all she birthed our podcast 🙂
