Pinterest tends to be overlooked when it comes to social media marketing. However, Pinterest is one of the top social media platforms, and you want to ensure you’re marketing on there as well. Using and promoting on Pinterest will help you to grow your audience, as well as your brand presence. This is why we’ve highlighted below the benefits of Pinterest for your business, as well as how you can use our platform to schedule out content to your Pinterest profile.
The Benefits of Using Pinterest
Builds personal connections with your customers
Pinterest allows you to easily build a more personal relationship with your customers. You can do so by viewing customers, or potential customers, boards and finding similar interests. Then, you can either repost or comment on their Pins to show them your interest. This will help you build a stronger relationship with your customers, and can lead to more customer loyalty.
Why not post to an additional social media platform? Those who are on Pinterest may not be on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, so post to Pinterest as well to ensure you’re reaching your full audience. And with our platform, you can schedule posts out to your Pinterest profile with just the click of a button. Posting to Pinterest can also increase your chances of your posts being shared, leading to potential new customers.
Helps drive traffic to your websites
Pinterest can be a great way to drive traffic. Pinterest has an option for you add a link to any of your Pins, so that when anyone clicks on your Pin, they will be directed to the link you put in. That being said, you can add your website link to your Pins. This will easily drive more people to your website, and can lead to more sales.
Allows for visually pleasing content
Pinterest is the social platform that is all about images and the visual appeal. You can take advantage of this, and reach new customers through high quality, aesthetically pleasing images which can be easily sourced from the Content Library! Or to spice things up, use our Canva integration feature to create your own unique images to get the attention of possible new customers.
Allows you to get fun & real
Pinterest can be a great way to humanize your brand. For example, you can create boards with your content, as well as re-pinned content from your customers. You can even share content from your personal blog to Pinterest. This helps you be more relatable, and allows your customers to see you’re more than just a business.
