Bringing More Traffic To Your Pinterest’s most powerful feature

Is its potential for traffic generation.


Nearly all the images on Pinterest link to the original source of the image. With two clicks of the mouse, it takes viewers from a sea of pictures to your website to read your content and buy your products. 

It isn’t surprising that the number of traffic referrals from Pinterest to websites continues to grow. It is what Pinterest I mean to do. Unlike networks such as Facebook and Twitter that should connect people with other people, they design Pinterest to connect people with the things they are interested in online.

Pinterest is growing its presence globally.

We now translate it into over 20 languages and they are continuing to add more. They’re even hiring for positions around the world. This expansion means that your content, products, and services can reach a global audience through Pinterest. 

Pinterest continues to grow in popularity, not just in North America but globally.

Pinterest is a place to show them products and ways to use them.

The images then take them to the site where the products can be purchased they’re more likely to buy. They were already in there in the let’s see what’s cool that I like and want mindset.

VentureBeat reported that for beauty retailer Sephora “Pinterest followers spend a 15X more than our Facebook fans.” Which makes sense, right? Facebook is a great place to interact with your customers because that’s why people use Facebook, social interaction.

Making sales 

As mentioned before, Pinterest is designed to connect people with the things they are interested in. People are often interested in things to buy, right? Put Pinterest and online shopping together and you have a match made in heaven. 

This isn’t an isolated case, I have seen this happen with several other Pinterest boards as including one of my own.

You might think a lot of time, energy and expense had to be put into getting the results that the Santa Cruz Construction Guild has with this Pinterest board, not the case. As of today, March 21, 2014, this board has 127 followers and only 108 pins.

The last time we added a pin to this board was 35 weeks ago. For the past 8 months, I have been keeping an eye on this board on Google and it always ranks very well on the results page.
