in a word…EYE CANDY
i thought i was doing pretty well with 3000 followers but yestereday i had customer with 50,000!!!!! shes famous in the blog world and the funky junk world…. and was shopping in our store…she found us on the internet….. shes repinned from my boards…
like she said, ” all they want is pictures…we are so fast now, “ shes also using instargram…..which she complained about because of this…shes away from home shopping, like at my store, and puts a picture on instagram, and someone wants to buy it before she gets home….. she is slowing down on her blog….
for me i think its all about the quality of the pictures….i can look at my boards and see whats getting the most repins…. i think i know my target audience pretty well and what they like…. mailnly they are on there for fun and eye candy….my boards tell me they are interested in diy projects and i carry a lot of that for them..they love to see beautiful repurposing ideas….. people in my field all know pinterest is huge and a big driver of business…. its perfect for us…. seriously i hear about it every single day in the store….they see a neat window project on pinterest and they know i have a whole pile of them out in the parking lot…
i want to be inspiring and original…. so many are in this field we are getting pretty jaded….sorry , i dont see how this applies to social media folks….but thats how it drives traffic , serious money traffic, to our business….
