The Bing Bing BUY Button | Writedge (Tips for the Home Biz Entrepreneur)

This blog post supplies a summary update to my article The Bing Bing BUY Button | Writedge which was published July 2015.  The update is a contrast and comparison to my Pinterest experience.




Although The Bing Bing site has a lot of good features, it falls way behind Pinterest in search engine ranking. Pinterest has introduced “RichPins” (same as The Bing Bing Buy button), they allow users to convert personal accounts to business accounts, and account holders can also “Promote Pins”.  For this reason, as a home biz entrepreneur, most of my social media marketing efforts are devoted to maintaining my Pinterest profile. 





Create Web Page with Netboard.me | Writedge is a related or similar article published March 2015 about another site which was presented as a Pinterest alternative.  Though the features of Netboard are different from The Bing Bing, the above update results in me making the same decision to choose Pinterest.

Glad to have saved these historical markers. It's 2015 and Pinterest has made its way to becoming a recognized reliable social media "facilitator".  Their success is phenomenal.  Keeping up with their business affairs because several months back, they invited me to create a free business account.  That was a gracious and generous offer to a struggling home business entrepreneur.  Even though this company has hit the "big time" (as Peter Gabriel would say), they still extended a helping hand  to "the little people" (like me).  With a current net worth of $3.8 billion, they have plans to continue moving forward.   Here is what they were up to in 2015:

Appraisal as a Sincere Form of Flattery


You've worked hard. Really hard. NO. Really really really hard!

You know what it's worth to you? But how much is it worth to someone else?

Would you like to know the monetary value of your website or blog?

What's that? Did I appraise my sites?
NO. But another fellow entrepreneur appraised his and I was impressed.  It gave me hope! Got me making plans!!


So I'm passing along this business tip. If you're a home business entrepreneur like me, perhaps an honest assessment of the value of your work will encourage you to continue to press forward and pursue your financial goals. One of these days you might hear that lovely sound. KA-CHING!!!
