The revolution that Social Media has brought into the corporate world can certainly be described as a magic of language, and it has also made it easy to reach the targeted consumers. However, looking at an image of something is always more appealing (and feasible) than reading its description. The whole idea of Pinterest lies on this simple fact. At the time, when the internet has entered into the nooks and corners of the world, and when people hardly have enough time to spend reading texts, descriptions, reviews and analysis, they want a visual image of things and ideas. And much to the amusement of social media conversationalists, Pinterest lets you do exactly the same. By using it, you don’t have to talk about your products and ideas anymore, you can just display them on web space.
Now that you know why Pinterest is an essential platform for your business, read how you can market your business using it.
• Research before you pin an image
Do not pin any product image that you may like. Think as a customer and the image he would like. Carry out some research on the pages of the companies offering the same products or look at other social media platforms to find out the expectations and preferences of your targeted customer group.
• Review your pins
Try to figure out if the product images you pinned are being re-pinned and if so, how many times. Make a list of the image type/category that is being re-pinned often. This would help you know if users find your pinned pictures appealing or not. If not, then pull up your socks to figure out new approaches.
• Be unique
Your Pinterest board will grab attention only if it is unique and has something new to offer. You need to stand out from the rest while you stick to your primary offerings and business. Make sure your Pinterest page is not a replica of your business website or doesn’t carry what other social media pages of your company carry.
The right approach for developing your Pinterest page can help your business/brand find some significant footage through social networking. Moreover, it is one of the fastest growing social media websites and is the quickest to have reached the 10 million mark, so you need not worry about the visibility and exposure of your page.
