Pin your product!
As you know, in ADDvantage magazine there is a section in Industry Action called Member Product Showcase in which you can submit information about your products or books. We're experimenting with Pinterest and wanted to try to do something similar there. (Pinterest is an online bulletin board where you can organize and share things that interest you.) If you've written a book or developed a product, you can pin it to our Member Product Showcase board. Check it out! http://pinterest.com/USPTA/member-product-showcase/

Send us a link to your pin and we'll repin it!
