Do you know how to use Pinterest as a marketing tool?
Pinterest is built around beautiful pictures and that can be a problem for some companies.
If you don’t think your business is Pinterest-friendly, it’s time to reconsider.
In this article you’ll discover three Pinterest marketing tactics you can use to entice followers to click through, no matter what your industry or niche.
#1: Highlight Your Strengths
The challenge on Pinterest is to be as irresistible as possible. No matter what your end game is, you’re not going to get there without original content that stands out in a pinner’s feed. How do you do that if your company or product doesn’t really fit with the colorful, visual nature of Pinterest?
Realizing that pictures are not their strength, The Wall Street Journal has gained a Pinterest following by posting noteworthy quotes from their articles.
Do you want more Pinterest followers?
Have you optimized your profile, website and images for maximum exposure?
A strong Pinterest community tells others you’re a trusted source of inspiration.
In this article you’ll discover six simple ways to quickly increase your number of Pinterest followers.
#1: Verify Your Pinterest Profile
A verified Pinterest account is an important step in building your following. It’s fairly easy to do and instills trust because it confirms your account is the real deal, not a knockoff. In turn, that makes your Pinterest profile more attractive to existing and new followers.
When you’ve verified your Pinterest account, people see a checkmark next to your brand’s URL in the Pinterest profile. This checkmark especially stands out on mobile and in profile searches.

#1: Stay Top of Mind Using LinkedIn Tags
On LinkedIn, you shouldn’t send an email blast to every one of your connections. However, you can create lists of “tagged” groupings so you can send relevant and helpful information to your contacts at strategic times.
When you tag your connections on LinkedIn, you can sort/filter them by Tags and—wait for it—send a message to up to 25 people at a time.
For example, if one of your niche markets on LinkedIn is marketers who target medical professionals, all you have to do is:
“You can use any social media channel for B2B,” said Erica Ayotte, social media marketing manager at Constant Contact.
“Anyone who says you can’t is not being creative enough.”
She should know. Her team has grown their Pinterest following to over 18,000 in less than two years.
How does a company that is not retail and not inherently visual use Pinterest to reach a B2B target audience?
The keys are to expand your idea of what your brand is, think visually and have a curating mindset. Here’s how Constant Contact appeals to their small-business market on Pinterest.

#1: Run a Campaign to Give Back
One of the most interesting things I’ve seen on Pinterest was Sony Electronics’ Pin It to Give It campaign.
Sony Electronics used their Pinterest brand page to curate an array of Sony Electronics products that were pinned to the Pin It to Give It board. Every time someone repinned from the board, Sony Electronics donated a dollar to The Michael Phelps Foundation. The campaign ran from November 27 through December 31, 2012 and raised more than $12,500.
Are you measuring your Pinterest marketing effectively?
It’s crucial that any business understands whether their time spent on a social network is generating results.
Why Pinterest Analytics?
Consistently measuring your activity on Pinterest can also help your business identify what types of content resonate best on this channel and with your specific audience.
The number of followers your account has is important to note, but it’s certainly not the final indicator of a successful Pinterest strategy.
To gain access to your Pinterest account’s analytics, verify your website and then from the Settings drop-down menu at the top right-hand corner, you’ll be able to check your stats by clicking Analytics.
