There are several reasons why you should be using Pinterest.
Reason 1- You can get more sales and conversions through Pinterest. The reason? There are less steps between seeing the product and buying the product. See it, Like it, Buy it. Less steps more conversions
Reason 2- Pinterest can steer traffic back to your site. You are able to put a link on your Pinterest pin which will lead people back to your site. You can also set up a pin it button on your site which means people can pin images from your site to their own Pinterest account so this adds backlinks to your site but also your pins are added to other people’s accounts so even more people will see them and click on them and get back to your site
Reason 3- People love pictures. Looking at pictures is far easier than reading tweets or Facebook posts. Many Pinterest users use their mobile phones to view pins on Pinterest in bed, at the shop, at the bus stop. If your pins are interesting looking and stand out they will get seen and clicked on. Pinterest also allows you to share pins to Facebook and twitter which means even more people can see them and be directed to your Pinterest Boards and back to your website.
Reason 4- You can use Pinterest to research what your audience is looking for. Pinterest can really help you identify your audience as it can be used as a search engine. You can check out your followers boards and see what types of pins they are looking at and then offer similar products.
