Using Pinterest to drive traffic

Anyone use Pinterest as an advertise source? or to get traffic to website?

My name is Melissa and I am a Pinterest Virtual Assistant. I would like to help event planners/coordinators promote the services and show off their final results through Pinterest!

But first I want to see if it is worth it! So I am researching! I know Pinterest is great for inspiration but do any of you ‘advertise’ through Pinterest?

How do you get your clients? Word of mouth?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
Melissa
