Pinterest may not seem like a natural spot to share your music, but it's actually a great promotional tool—it supports sharing or "pinning" of audio and video as well as photos. Join Bobby Owsinski as he shows how to promote your band, your music, and your gigs on Pinterest. Learn how to start a page, optimize your website or blog for easy pinning, and post pictures, audio, and video to your boards.

A pin chat is a unique event that works in conjunction with your Twitter followers. The way it works is, ask your followers to tweet either links; pins and videos around a particular theme, like pictures of your last gig; images of their favorite artist or album; the artist you remind them of; or even one about their favorite guitars or even one of your favorite guitars. Re-pin the tweeted items to one of your boards, then notify everyone who contributed, and even those who didn't. A pin chat can be a unique way to build your community faster than any other avenue.
