ImageHave you heard of Pinterest?

It has hit the the social media market by storm and expanding everyday. We found tips to get you ahead of the competition!

To help guide businesses through that wilderness, we have developed the following tips to help you utilise Pinterest in the best way possible:

  • Assess your suitability – are your clients or target audience on Pinterest? A simple questionnaire to these groups will assess if this is a viable area for you.
  • Do you have an expertise and interesting product that will stand out to others?
  • Do you have competitors in Pinterest, if so follow them and view the pros and cons of their boards and how they draw people in. Then improvise to fit your needs!
  • Follow other people’s boards that have similar and unique aspects that will bring customers to your page.
  • Make sure that you have interaction with customers. Allow them to feel welcome and show that your site is for more than just selling.
  • Always stay ahead of the game and create new and improved images for your company. People will be brought in by the change in your brands page and come back more frequently to see what’s new.
  • Don’t be afraid to follow others, share pins and boards by choosing relevant categories that allow people to spot your business easier!
  • If you have employees or if it’s just yourself show behind the scenes images of your company at work. If you have a product that takes stages, take pictures of each stage so customers can see how the product they have is built.
  • Remember Pinterest followers are visual and pick products that they see has unique or high quality, make sure you put most talked about products as top pictures.
  • Today’s buyers would rather watch a short clip of a product rather than read a description, be creative and market your product by video it will bring that “Wow” factor to your products.

Lastly, remember this is your site and what works for someone else may not work for you. You just have to get out there and find the niche market that works for you!
