With the popular growth of Pinterest (mostly amongst women), a need was created to have a similar site setup– but for a more manly background.
At Thrifty Computer, we respect our female & male clients all the same (we have our own Pinterest account set up as well). Although electronics have a place in the Pinterest community (and also among women), it is seriously outnumbered by other categories (weddings, animals, outfits, etc). Over time, these stats and categories will probably even out a bit more for the men– but for now, a site like Gentlemint will begin to thrive.
When we finally got an invite late on Wednesday night, a good portion of the day was spent ‘minting’ or posting all of our products currently on sale, technology that impresses us, celebrities on their smartphones and just things we enjoy. Over time, we hope that this site gains more features that really make Pinterest special. Here’s a list of things you can’t do right now: you are unable to follow certain people or companies that you enjoy, organize your products/mints in categories or boards like they are on Pinterest, you have to click through at the end of the page instead of the ‘endless scroll’ on most other similar sites, and the search function doesn’t seem to be too responsive.
Attached below is an example of the type of posts that will be usually minted by Team Thrifty:
We remain hopeful that this will follow in the steps of Pinterest and continue it’s progression and development.
Invites are currently limited, but I’m sure more expansion (and development) is on the way. Want an invite? You can request one here: http://gentlemint.com/invite/form/
