Can Pinterest help my business?

Pinterest is a great tool for business, but it's not just for women. Pinterest has over 200 million active users and 75% of them are female, but this figure each year is dropping. So how do you use Pinterest to grow your business? In this post, I'm going to teach you how to leverage the power of visual content on Pinterest to get more traffic, leads and sales for your product or service-based business!

Product Business

Pinterest can help you promote your products. You can use it to drive traffic to your site, and even create a board for each product.

You should add a link to the product page in the description of each pin. This will ensure that people who click on a pin are taken directly to that item’s page on your website, increasing their chances of making a purchase.

Service Business

Pinterest can be used to showcase your service!

If you are a service business, such as a bartender or hairdresser, the most important thing you can do is show how good your work is. Pinterest is a great way to do this. Not only will it allow potential customers to see what you offer and what kind of work you have done in the past (which will make them more likely to hire you), but it will also increase the likelihood that someone else repins or likes one of your pins. This makes their friends aware of your services and drives traffic back to your page--and more importantly, when people come back from that link they'll see all those amazing and inspiring images from other people's boards who repinned yours!

Lead Magnet
  • What is a lead magnet?

A lead magnet is an incentive to get someone’s attention and encourage them to sign up for your list. For example, you might offer a free ebook or checklist that helps with their business. This can be offered in exchange for an email address so that you have permission to send them marketing messages later on.

  • How do I create a lead magnet?

The first step in creating your own lead magnet is to create the content itself! However, once you have done this you will need somewhere safe where it can live until it’s ready to be downloaded by users – such as on Dropbox or Google Drive (or even on your own server). Once it has been uploaded and set up correctly, there are two ways of making sure people download it: either manually by sharing links through social media or by automating the process using tools like ActiveCampaign or Mailchimp which allow subscribers who opt-in via one form (e-mail) but then also request more information via another form (a landing page).

  • What is the purpose of a lead magnet?

The purpose of using a lead magnet in conjunction with Pinterest advertising campaigns should not only be seen as an opportunity for generating revenue from sales alone - but also as an opportunity for building relationships with potential customers over time through continual communication via email marketing campaigns which help grow trust between consumers and brands alike!


It’s no secret that Pinterest is a great way to find new products, but it can also help you with your shopping list. Searching for something specific on Pinterest can be overwhelming, so we suggest starting with the “Pinterest Finder” tool and then narrowing down your results by typing in keywords related to what you want to buy.

If you like a product, pin it! Pins are more than just another way of bookmarking something online; they also show other people who visit your account what kind of style or lifestyle choices appeal most to you. They're an easy way for businesses and brands alike to promote their products without being too pushy about it (and without making anyone feel like an advertisement).

In addition to helping users find new items on their own, Pinterest has partnered with retailers including Target and Nordstrom Rack which allow users who follow those pins links back into their stores where they can purchase items directly through the site itself - again without ever leaving Pinterest's platform!

Pinterest is a great tool for business.

It can be a great source of traffic, leads, and sales.

Pinterest has an awesome organic search feature that helps users discover new content they are interested in. So if you have an audience who likes what you post on this platform then there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be one of your top 3 marketing channels.


If you are thinking about using Pinterest for your business, I hope this blog has helped you understand the potential. There is a lot more to learn and many ways to use it effectively, but I think these points should be enough to get started!
