How to Use Pinterest for Business

20 Feb

What is Pinterest?

Do I need it for my business?

How can Pinterest help my website?

Ah, Pinterest… yet another in the long line of social media platforms that are crowding our to-do lists. However, Pinterest is NOT something you should be ignoring and here’s why:

Pinterest is a simple platform that allows you to “pin” online images to your virtual pinboard. You can organize the pictures into categories, or boards. Seriously, Pinterest is extremely easy to use and yes, it’s free.

Don’t be surprised if Pinterest becomes the next big traffic generator for your website! Pinterest is growing ridiculously quickly and, unlike Twitter or some other social media platforms, it actually engages your audience for a long time… long enough to get them interested in learning more about your business.

  • Pinterest provides valuable backlinks to your website. The more backlinks you have the better your site ranks.
  • Pinterest takes no time at all to update and is instantly in front of a HUMUNGOUS audience.
  • Pinterest followers can become paying customers. Because people are excited to peruse your pics on Pinterest, you have lots of time and opportunity to encourage them to come check out your website. That can help grow your mailing list, your customer base, your repeat business… the list goes on.

Pinterest currently is available by invitation only, but you can request your personal invitation here. Get pinning right away to build your pinboard, then prepare to be amazed by how quickly people start engaging with what you’re posting, either through repinning, liking, or commenting on your pins.
