Pinterest has become the third most popular social network behind Facebook and Twitter. For businesses, Pinterest can be a great tool for increasing attention, driving website traffic, and increasing revenues. We have a couple of Pinterest tips for the business users that you may not have known about.
Did you know that you can:
Pinterest does allow its users to use hashtags, however search results do not solely include pins with specific hashtags. Search results on Pinterest now also include pins with the same word in its description, link address, or file name. A great way to approach hashtags on Pinterest is to use them for unique words that may be specified for a campaign or promotion.
Tag People in Comments
You are able to engage with your audience by tagging people in comments. However, in order to tag a user, you must be following them. Of course, this feature is not a unique one, but many users do not use it on Pinterest. This is a great way for your brand to answer questions and respond to your audience.
Use the Pinterest Source Tool
With the Pinterest Source Tool, you can see what people are pinning from your website or any other website. This is a great tool if you’re looking for more insight on what is popular with your audience. In order to see what people are pinning from a site, type in http://www.pinterest.com/source/WEBSITE_DOMAIN_HERE and a list of pins will show up.
