You’re already using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so why should you add in one more social media platform? What could Pinterest possibly offer you that the other three can’t?

I get it! I used Pinterest daily for years and didn’t quite understand what Pinterest could do for me until I really started looking into it further and realized that Pinterest is so much more than just a social media platform.

What is Pinterest and why is it a good time to use it?

Pinterest is the fastest growing social media platform with over 322 million active users and counting in 2019. One third of Pinterest users in 2019 used it to follow brands and companies. 77% of weekly pinners have discovered a new brand or product and eight out of ten users have bought products based on their brand’s content on Pinterest! If that doesn’t get you excited about getting started using Pinterest for your business, I don’t know what will?

Why should I use Pinterest for my site?

Research is showing that Pinterest has been responsible for driving more traffic to websites than LinkedIn, Google, and YouTube combined. If you have a website, now’s the time to get involved and jump on board!

Pinterest can work for any niche. Have recipes to share? Love to craft? Do you share the latest tech tips? Are you a fashion blogger or photographer? Do you own a clothing business? Whatever your niche or brand, Pinterest can work for you!

Won’t it just get lost in the stream?

NOT AT ALL! Unlike Facebook, Twitter and Instagram where the minute you post that cute dog pic it gets covered up and lost in the stream by every other post out there, Pinterest is actually a search engine. With the right keywords and pins, your content will not get lost in the masses. In fact, Pinterest users are always engaged. How many times have you seen that a pin you posted was re-pinned by someone else over and over again? Pinterest content never gets lost.
