Are you looking to increase your Pinterest engagement and drive traffic?
In this article, I’ll share 12 tips on how you can get more Pinterest followers and promote your business.
Why More Pinterest Followers?
More Pinterest followers can help you get more likes, repins, comments, clicks and impressions.
This can then help drive traffic, increase sales, generate leads and build your Pinterest brand.
It also provides an opportunity for you to generate more engagement with your customers.
Here are the tips:
#1: Add the Pinterest Follow Button
The Pinterest follow button diverts website visitors to your Pinterest page, thereby attracting followers. This can be effective if you have a high-traffic website.
Install the button in several prominent places on your website and blog—the header, footer, sidebar, etc. Make it easy for people to find your brand page and convert them into followers.
To create your button, use the widget builder page on Pinterest or create a custom button that matches your branding.
Have you heard about Pinterest Rich Pins and how they can help your marketing?
In today’s post, I’ll show you how businesses can get more from Pinterest Rich Pins.
Get to Know the New Pins
Pinterest is continuously expanding their functionality for businesses, from creating business accounts to marketing materials to help businesses get more from Pinterest.
The latest additions to Pinterest are the introduction of rich pins to include more information about pinned images and the integration of the Pin It button with mobile apps.
There are three types of pins that now allow you to share more information: products, recipes, and movies. The additional information for pins in these categories is provided by specific websites.
The difference between an enhanced (Rich) product pin and a regular pin of a product is the enhanced pin shows current pricing details and has a direct link to the product page. Regular pins require the user to enter the price (which can only be updated by the user) and the link only pops up when someone hovers over the image.
