Pinterest for Independent & Small businesses

Family map art watercolour by Miss Design Berry

As I Have run a small business myself I know only to well how hard it can be to find money for a marketing and advertising budget.  Today, more than ever there are a wealth of free resources available, especially through social media.  

One of the best of these resources in my opinion, is pinterest.  See the post I wrote last year HERE I set up a board to support independent and small businesses and it has gone from strength to strength.   I thought with Mother’s day coming up I would mention a few of the  great businesses using the board on here.
