Why Pinterest Matters

Not only does Pinterest gain a lot of traffic, it has likewise become a large traffic referral site.  Pinterest matters because a lot of people are on it, and are using the social network. Users are increasingly making purchase decisions off of things that they are seeing on Pinterest. It gives users a different way to find and engage with your products and your business.

We display a project portfolio on Pinterest which reflects our online custom website design portfolio this gives user an idea of what we have to offer.

How to get your products on Pinterest

Your company’s products might already be on Pinterest even if you’re not using the site. If you really want to use Pinterest to its full potential, you have to get users to Pin and Re-Pin your product more than they already are.

Make sure your content is something you would share. Be aware of what other users are uploading similar to your interest and see how you can improve your images and how you are marketing your products to gather more Pins and Re-Pins.

Make it Easy for People to Pin

Prepare your images easier to encounter on your website or blog and generate those images onto the social media platform. A great way of doing so is, making sure your images have a “Pin-It” button so that way anyone can easily “Pin” your products.
