Pin It: Add a Pinterest Button to Your IOS Sharing Options
Pinterest is the newest and most diverse of the social networks. You can find teenagers, housewives, teachers, athletes and seniors on Pinterest pinning any number of things that are interesting to them. You should consider adding Pinterest to your IOS sharing options to attract more people to your business and products.
#1: Regular Customers
Your regular customers will keep sharing your pages and products because they already love your business. The Pin It Button is easy to see, and your customers can send the pages to their boards immediately. You are creating a new community where people can enjoy your products, and you must use social media as often as your own customers.
#2: Sign Up For Your Own Account
You need to have an account of your own that allows you to pin your own products to Pinterest. Customers that find your boards will pin from your boards as they learn about your business. You need to take advantage of Pinterest outside using the button on your website. You must interact with your customers, and you cannot interact with them properly without your own account.
#3: Post Advertising
Pinterest is an easy place to post ads and flyers for your business. Pinterest pages are much easier to read, and your ads come through in beautiful color when people see them. Pinterest also allows for sponsored advertising that you pay for. You can spend a small amount of money on sponsored ads that will appear on boards of people who have similar interests to your own. This type of advertising is cheap, effective, and simple.
#4: Giveaway Offers
You want to encourage people to Pin It more often from your website or boards, and you may use a giveaway to encourage your customers. Most customers will pin your products in the hopes of winning something, and they will not hesitate to give it a try every day. You are producing free advertising for your business with these giveaways, and you are spending very little money on the giveaways themselves.
Pinterest is a new and exciting way to promote your business, but you must use this promotion tool wisely. Put the Pint It Button on your website by all your content and products. Use the Pinterest website to create more buzz around you business, and create giveaways that entice customers to share your products online. Pinterest is a new opportunity to find customers around the world.
