About our guests:

PinnableBusiness.com is a direct product of the Pinterest hype that truly began in the eve of 2011. Janet Thaeler and Paul Wilson, long time web marketing geeks, saw the Pinterest craze and were strong advocates for the infant social network. However, they wanted to understand further the impact Pinterest had on business.

Thus began a long journey of publishing two books on Pinterest for business, both of which will be published Spring Summer soon. Due to Janet’s and Paul’s intense focus on writing these books a mountain of research surfaced. PinnableBusiness.com was launched in order to make sense of this data, and to further help businesses turn this information into actionable items.

We welcome all, new comers and pinheads alike, to join us in in making sense of this fascinating Pinterest journey!
