Did you know that Pinterest gets over 3000 views a day? Those are 3000 pairs of eyes that could be driving your business with new clients and/or customers. I’m going to walk you through how to use Pinterest to grow your business.
Pinterest for every type of business
Pinterest is not your typical social media platform, in fact it is not social media at all. It is actually more of a visual search engine. Google even provides Pinterest search results as well as their own!
If you are confused by how Pinterest can help promote your business and grow it, let me give you a little run down. The Pins that you see are images or videos that have a link. Most of the time these Pins will take you to the blog/article/video from where they came from. Businesses use these Pins with links going back to their website, Facebook or where ever they want to drive their audience to.
The more page views for a blogger or website the better right? The same goes for your Pinterest business account. They have a way to track your monthly views, your pins progress over a 30 day period, followers and more.
The ways that you can utilize Pinterest to help your business are endless and you can do so many things such as:
- Sell Products
- Affiliate Marketing (say through blogging)
- Promote your events
- Pinterest Advertising
If you really haven’t started using Pinterest for your business because you think that it won’t help you, I think you need to reconsider. This isn’t a site just for bloggers or clothing, it really is for so much more. If you are really wanting to get started with Pinterest for your business but don’t know where to start, I can help you by setting up your business account and set you up for success.
