How to use Pinterest effectively for social media marketing.

Recommended Posts

In my little experience to date it depends on what your website is about, if it's a 'I want one of those' sites then pintrest users will spread links to your content, a bit like a 'share' or 'retweet'. If it's a website about cakes for example then I found pintrest works wonders, however an accountant has limited pintrest appeal :D

 

The flip side is to make your own pintrest board (like a facebook page) and link to content you like from yours and other sites of interest. It's like most social media channels, it's all down to how much time either you or your client can input into each social media channel.

The niche of your website has a huge impact on whether or not you will do good with Pinterest. Obviously having interesting images on your website is a must. Example: I have a web and graphic design blog, so it's all about images and with Pinterest having a well followed design section, my site does pretty well with it. So, again, it's all about your niche.

Pinterest defines itself as “an online pinboard”. It's a place where you pin (mostly) images and other stuff you find interesting and share them with the world. Similarly to the other social networks, you follow people and have followers. Also, other users can repin your pins, thus spreading the word.

Pinterest is largely used by women, mostly Millennial Moms, according to a research study by Ahology and AcuPOLL Precision Research, Inc. With this in mind, it’s important that you use that information to determine if you should spend time on marketing via Pinterest. If your typical customer demographic is primarily male, your marketing efforts would probably be better spent somewhere else. And if your business caters to women between the ages 15-29, you should definitely create a presence on Pinterest.

 

Pinterest is different than your small business’ Facebook page, where a hodgepodge of information is posted in chronological order, rather than in order of importance or by topic. By allowing you to create multiple boards—one for each category of your products or services, for example—Pinterest helps keep users engaged not only in your general content, but in content that’s specific to their interests. According to the Ahalogy/AcuPOLL study referenced above, 52 percent of daily Pinterest users have pulled up Pins on their mobile devices to guide their in-store purchase decisions. So, make it easy for them!

I find that Pinterest and Instergram are taking over for me as opposed to Facebook and Twitter. Certainly there is a large response to web design related graphics. Especially as Twitter is getting so spammy.

Since Pinterest is all about boards and images, I believe that it's very important to optimize those images for search engines. Make sure you use hashtags, too.

I believe that you can automate everything using Tailwind and Boardbooster, and the real secret to getting traction is well-optimised descriptions on vertical rich pins, and joining a lot of group boards with a lot of members.
