Pinterest is the same as any other social media site in that you can only succeed through putting the time in. Users must build relationships with those who have a tendency for quality pins. This will mean that these people are more likely to put your product in their pins and so give you that boost you require.


The simple format of Pinterest is one of its central winning points. Ensure your pins are kept tidy, as no one will want to read clutter. By adding links to each pinned photo you can really improve traffic to your site and all that comes with it.

The Real and the Virtual

Just as with all other social media sites, you have to ensure that Pinterest connects your real store with the online interest. Featuring in store and online Pinterest promotions as well as buttons can really improve your customer’s interest in your Pinterest. Launching daily pin themes to promote brands and coming up with catchy slogans and images can aid your re-pinning. These also lead to people coming back on a regular, if not daily basis and so boosts interest in your site.
