Does Pinterest work? How can I use it to promote my business?
On the surface, Pinterest seems designed for maximum visual impact. A catalogue of images that forces your finger to endlessly scroll.
IS THAT ALL PINTEREST IS?
Every now and then you might pause, click to add an image to your own collection of “things I will one day do if I win the lottery“, and then on you scroll.
But its secret is that it can direct traffic to your blog, far more efficiently than any other network.
Here is why. By following like minded
pinners, pinteresters, pinningers …. people that use it, you can access your niche market far easier. The algorithm it uses is the best on the internet at the moment for pinpointing a potential client.
This is why Pinterests most powerful tool to utilise, other than its analytics of course, is the “following tab”. You can see where your market is interest is heading. Keeping you in the know and allowing you to develop blog articles that the masses in your niche will pin and share. The more this happens, the more traffic is organically driven to your blog and website.
Generally Pinterest does work for most business markets. But as is the case with all social media networks, some are better suited than others. For Pinterest, it is the travel related blogs that will achieve most success. These lend themselves to the type of content most often shared and read by the community.
