Pinterest is a photo sharing Social Media platform and online pin board. The special thing about it is that it works like a mixture of Google and Instagram, because it's a search engine based on images.
It's great for getting images of your stock out there and it's also great for your websites Google Rankings. Click here for an article about the big social media platforms and the difference between them.
Getting ranked well in Google can be really difficult unless you pay for things like Google Ads and Google shopping, but if you use Pinterest and link all of the pictures you post to Pinterest back to that item on your website, it can get you hits from Google as Pinterest ranks well in Google and has lots of page 1 results for antique, art, reclamation and vintage based searches.
Our client English Salvage for example, has almost 350,000 monthly unique visitors!
To get the best out of Pinterest, you'll need to make sure that you're using it properly. Here's how to do just that.
Which will save you lots of time so you can get on with running your business and not spend hours trying to format images and item titles to add onto your Pinterest.
We would recommend that you use both. Instagram is fantastic but will only get you visitors from Instagram itself. Whereas Pinterest can get you visitors from people searching in Google, as well as those using Pinterest.
Instagram is also limited in the fact that you cannot post links in the captions of your pictures and you can only have one link on your Instagram profile at a time, which doesn't do you any favours in getting people to all your stock or to your website. Whereas with Pinterest you can post a link to your website individuallly on each item.
We also tend to find that people who are active on both Instagram and Pinterest get more traffic from Google via their Pinterest.
Don't get me wrong though, we love them both and they go hand in hand! We've got a fair few articles with social media tips and information on how to use Instagram.
