Can I use Pinterest for MY business?
Pinterest is one of the most popular social media platforms around, and it keeps growing in popularity at a rapid rate.
What many people don't know is that it is powerful marketing tool for businesses - even YOURS.
Blog, small shops, service based businesses, ANY business can use Pinterest to drive traffic to their website, increase brand awareness, and increase sales.
The first step is to have a Pinterest business profile. You can't operate your business on a personal account, it is against Pinterest's terms and conditions. It is free and easy to switch (or start a new account) to a business account, so just do it!
You will want to confirm your website with PInterest and apply for Rich pins - these will help Pinners see you as a legitimate business and give them information that comes directly from your website in the pin description. There are now several types of pins, from products to articles- so everyone can use this great feature!
I highly recommend finding and participating in several group boards to help grow your audience and get more exposure for your pins. This allows your pins to be seen by more than the followers you have when you are just getting started.
Pinterest is a great, FREE marketing platform! All you need to do is USE it properly.
