Using Pinterest To Generate Sales/Traffic To Your Site

My apologies to all my followers – I thought I had set this to go out a few weeks ago, but apparently it never made it – so here is my long over due post.

A few weeks ago I was on a webinar by my good buddy Chris Farrell. He had a guest speaker who is a “Pinterest Specialist” and was giving us tips and tricks on how to get sales and traffic to our websites.

Considering that I didn’t know a whole lot about Pinterest and really thought you couldn’t sell or market your business on there, I never even looked into it further than recipes, diy stuff, etc…kinda seemed like a waste to me. But, let me tell ya, I am really glad I attended that webinar.

Here are 2 statistics that may or may not shock you

  • Pinterest has a PR of 8
  • Pinterest buyers spend more money on Pinterest than any other network

Just those 2 alone should get you pretty excited about using Pinterest to advertise your business.

A PR8 means it is going to look good with Google, right? So, how do you do that? Very easily.

Sign up for a Pinterest Business Account and use your Business Name as your first and last name. In the Location box add where your business caters to. If it is just in the US, put that or if your business caters to the world, put worldwide. If it is a local business put in your physical address or phone number.

Then once you are signed up, go to Settings and upload your business logo, add a description about your business and of course your website.  There should be a button next to your website, you will probably have to save your settings first before you see it.  You have to download a little script and then upload it into your main directory of your website. Instructions are provided for you in case you don’t know how to do this.

You want to add some relevant boards. You can add whatever you like – products, videos, ebooks, etc. I added a new youtube video a few weeks ago and I instantly had a repin from someone who wasn’t following me – thought that was pretty cool and just goes to show how powerful Pinterest can be!

If you would be interested in exchanging videos and/or ebooks – please let me know. You can follow me here –https://pinterest.com/BuildOnlineBNow/

I hope this gives you a little bit more of an idea of how Pinterest can actually work for you and your business.

Let me know if you already have an account so I can follow you and were you aware that you could use Pinterest for business? I would love to hear your comments below.
