Pinterest – let’s talk business

Pinterest for Business

You may be more familiar with Facebook and Twitter and how they can work for your business but have you ever thought about using Pinterest? Pinterest is a visual platform that allows users to create, share, save and pin to boards. Boards can relate to just about anything and are often used for ideas and inspiration.

Pinterest was launched in 2010 by co-founders Ben Silbermann, Evan Sharp and Paul Sciarra and has 100 million active users with 85% of these being female.

If your business predominately markets itself to women and sells products or services in the home and lifestyle sector this could be a very useful tool for you.

Your customer might be planning something in the home, ideas for a new kitchen perhaps?

They could have you a special event coming up. Wouldn’t you like your business to be part of a board full of things that they love or better still that they’re considering purchasing.

If you are selling products from your website make sure you confirm your website. This means when customers pin your product they will see your logo and you will have increased analytics.

You also need to add the save button to your website or blog so that customers can save your products or articles to their boards easily.
