Are you using Pinterest yet? If your target audience is women – and visuals are important to your business – you should definitely be giving it some thought! Retailers, artists, photographers, crafters, bloggers……Read on for the three reasons Pinterest should be on your radar right now – plus details on how you can get your hands on a juicy training video.
Pinterest is now officially the fastest-growing independent website – EVER. According to stats released by web measurement firm Comscore and reported on TechCrunch this week, this addictive virtual pinboard just hit a staggering 11.7 million monthly unique visitors in the US – crossing the 10 million milestone faster than any other website in history. Simpy put this social sharing site is growing fast on both sides of the pond – is it time you got involved?
Not only is Pinterest attracting shed-loads of visitors (mainly 18-34 upper income women), but they’re staying and engaging too. The same Comscore stats reveal that the average visitor spends 98 minutes per month sharing images on the website – only Tumblr and Facebook achieve more. Wow! That’s potentially a lot of face time with you and your brand.
Think you have your social media strategy sewn-up? Think again. In January 2012, Pinterest drove more click-throughs to other websites than Google Plus, YouTube and LinkedIn combined. And perhaps even more interestingly – nearly as many as Twitter. Take a look at these stats from the Shareaholic blog to see for yourself.
I’m really excited about the potential of Pinterest, and think you will be too. I’ve been using the site for well over a year, and spent a lot of time looking at what brands are doing on there. So I’ve decided to share everything I’ve learned so far with you in a free training session. Here’s what I cover:
