Netboard as an Alternative to Pinterest

As stated in a previous post , some folks are Pinterest-crazy. Other folks? Not so much. can be an alternative to Pinterest. Surprised? It was a surprise to me because Pinterest doesn't seem to have hardly any competition. Netboards look like Pinterest boards, with tabs (which makes for better organization), but there are many more features that a home business entrepreneur might really like.

Here are few of the features:

  • Amazon and Chitika banner ads are allowed
  • ALL affiliate links are allowed
  • Share links ( same as Pinterest )
  • Text module to write your own posts ( like you're blogging )

It's like an all-in-one spot for everything you do: freelance writing articles, affiliate advertising links, etc. I'm still experimenting with it.

The company is a start-up and has not yet gained enough traction to compete with Pinterest. It does have the potential though. If that happens, will be another button to push in the wheel of . Not sure what their icon will look like. ( )

Interesting, I'm sure you'll tell us more about it as you learn more. I tend to wait until something is tried and tested.

Certainly looks like a well thought out site! Do they have a referral plan that you know of ?

Interesting. It takes a while for these things to grow but it's always useful to have another place to share. Must have a look. Have now had a look at the public places. A lot of the stuff on there is curated from other sites but they give credit and an original link to the first place.

You have aroused my interest in this site. I will investigate.

Thanks for this, I hadn't heard of Netboard. I'll have to look into it. I like that they allow referral links, just as long as it doesn't become too "spammy".

I usually don't mind doing the testing. I get to LAIGA. Learn as I go along. In fact, it's kind of cool to get in on a new project. (LOL. Poor site owners invite to participate and let me know their site is in beta test mode. As if I could offer any suggestions. Don't they realize I don't know what I'm doing??)

As far as I know they don't have a referral plan. If you go to site's home page you can eMail and ask, or contact them via Twitter or Facebook. Nothing like getting the plain facts directly from the source that would know the answer.

Yes they do give credit where credit is due. Definitely a lot of curated content. But that's not because original content isn't permitted. Original works are allowed, encouraged, supported, etc. You have plenty of capabilities to customize and present your own material.

Please do Sherlock! Take Watson with you. A second pair of eyes is usually quite helpful. :)

This is a team of savvy entrepreneurs based in Europe. This isn't their only project. But this does look like one that could be profitable

valmnz , agvulpes , MegL , Kasman , StaceyWrites -
Apologize for the late response. I don't as a general rule, sign in on Sundays and was late signing in today as well. Awesome comments good people! Thanks so much.

And now I'm thinking Netboard may suffer from the same copyright problems as Pinterest does.

One thing about the tech world, hope always springs eternal. I saw an article recently that said the online market is maturing, and the day of a lot of new startups hitting it big is over. We'll see.

Hi! Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. Know what you mean about these "predictions". Wish I could predict stuff that doesn't matter but I still get paid for saying it! :)
