I have 3 easy questions for you.
- Do you love Trollbeads?
- Do you have a Pinterest Page?
- If you answered NO to #2, why not?
If you haven’t discovered Pinterest yet please take a minute and check it out with me now. It’s not scary, it doesn’t cost a penny and it is heaps more fun than Facebook.
If you have either a Twitter or Facebook account you can have a Pinterest page but you need to be invited but it’s easy for me send you an invite and you will love the ease and fun of being a part of the fastest growing social site ever. Why is that? Because it is easy and fun.
To start your account with Pinterest all you have to do is just email me with a short note “Sign me up to Pinterest”. Shortly you will then get an email inviting you!

(No, I will NOT keep your email as I am not that kind of business person and if you're reading my blog and are a customer I probably have it anyway.)
Pinterest is so easy!! Trust me on this and you should because I am almost 60! Your page is yours and you can have as many pin-boards as you want. Just like individual bulletin boards for things you want to save! You can go back and look at them for inspiration or just to be reminded of something! This is the best visual internet innovation yet!
Where do you find pictures to pin? Everywhere! Trollbeads Gallery has a "Pin It" button on every item and many other websites do now also. Or you can run a search on Pinterest. If you search for Trollbeads you will find hundreds of other Trollbeads pages to re-pin from. Our Pinterest page has the most original content and the most unique photos to re-pin but I am a little more obsessed/obsessive than most other dealers.
Why am I asking you to join Pinterest?
I am asking you to do this because I have a very strong belief that Trollbeads is the most honorable company in its field providing collectors with the highest quality of beads and the world needs to see it as well as hear it. Who else can tell the story if we can't?
Pinterest’s true value to Trollbeads will prove to be the absolutely stunning visual affect Trollbeads has on people and if we can share this truth through our Trollbeads photos and through our pages on Pinterest we can be hopeful that the world will see how beautiful beads can really be and really ought to be. It's time to let the secret out.
Trollbeads, as most of us know, was the original brand and in the past 35 years hundreds of copy-cat companies have taken the add-a-bead concept and created a market so vast it’s been difficult for many people to sort the good from the bad. A comparatively small company, Trollbeads runs their business by strict business and artistic ethics and continues to design and create beads to the satisfaction of the family, a family of artisans. In this fashion we are always offered the best of what they create and what they produce.
The subsequent brands, vying for the market’s share, produces for mass market appeal and has distributed to the masses in the same way. When you have to appeal to the broad market ingenuity is vacant. Management from what I can gleam is neither dedicated to the product nor to the retailer and when the shareholder is the only one being considered in the end the brand has nowhere to go but down. I don't want Trollbeads to be associated with these other brands.
Trollbeads stays true to their Mantra and as collectors we are extremely lucky. How about we all join to give back to them by forming the best Pinterest Boards for Trollbeads we can and share these boards with the world!*
Let’s be the springboard of passion for Trollbeads and make the bead world a more beautiful place.
Think of your Trollbeads Pinterest board as a virtual bumper sticker but instead of honking...
"If you LOVE Trollbeads PIN!"
Please read on:
* What I have noticed about Trollbeads is many collectors like to keep their love a secret and that helps no one! I’ve noticed in years of being involved with Trollbeads the sales have grown steadily but it’s us old collectors still collecting while the broad base of new collectors grows at a much slower pace. I know why that is and it’s because we don’t have the time to explain to people the difference of this brand vs. the others. I spend everyday doing it so I know this is true. Now we don’t have to explain, they can SEE for themselves.
