Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You!

Let's Party! Pinterest Party that is!

Pinterest Party

Pinterest can generate a lot of traffic to your site fast, it has become a key in self promotion and showing off your products.  By having others repin and "like" your pins it moves yours towards that top bracket (where we all want to be!)

For this to be successful there will be some rules and instructions. Please note we are using InLinkz for our pins to promote, click, like and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)
Pinterest Party Rules
There have been many questions about where to place the hashtag "#ButterflysPin so I am including a clip to hopefully help show where to place it.
