Why you should use Pinterest for business



Naomi's Pinterest

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 3 months, you will be aware that Pinterest has been making headline news, and not just in the blogosphere (although I have to say I have never seen such a slew of blog posts on any topic in such a short space of time!).  The BBC, as well as several national newspapers, have run articles on Pinterest recently. A high percentage of Pinterest users are women, and you know how good we are at spreading the word about anything!  Pinterest recently became the fastest ever site to reach 10 million unique (US) monthly visitors


What is Pinterest?

Simply put, it’s an online pinboard (actually, a group of pinboards).  You set up a number of boards based around particular niches or concepts, and then “pin” images (or videos) of your products/services.  These are then “repinned” by other members. All images/videos link back to their site of origin. It’s especially good for creative businesses (web/graphic designers, photographers, interior designers, crafters, catering/restaurants etc).  Images of clothes, shoes, food, hairstyles, exotic locations, beautiful interiors, handcrafted items abound.  However, virtually any business can build a presence on Pinterest – if you use images in your blog posts (as you should) then these can be pinned and of course they link back to your site…….get the idea?

The compelling fact about using Pinterest for business is that it drives massive amounts of traffic – latest statistics place it above Twitter in the “traffic league table”.  So, as a business, you really do need to take advantage of this and get pinning! I’ve only been on Pinterest since January and already (via Google Analytics) I’m seeing traffic referred from there.

“But”, I hear you cry, “I just don’t have the time to manage yet another social media account”…….  Well, the good news is you don’t have to! Read on to find out how I can help you set up and manage your Pinterest account – all you’ll have to do is watch as traffic starts flowing to your website!  Oh and please follow me on Pinterest too –  link is on the right hand side of this page 🙂

The Pinterest Management Package – £60


  • Setup of Pinterest for your business
  • Creation of 10 boards related to your niche
  • Pinning your content/products/services on a regular basis
  • Repinning by me of the above
  • Promotion of your boards via other social media channels

As stated, the initial cost is £60 – I suggest we give it 6 weeks, by which time you should see some effect on your website traffic.  If not, and you don’t want to continue, that’s absolutely fine – you still have the account to carry on yourself if you wish.  If you do see an increase in traffic, and would like me to carry on managing your account,  the monthly fee will be £75 or just £50 if I’m already managing other accounts for you..
