What is Pinterest and Pinterest Advertising For Business

What is Pinterest?

So, What is Pinterest?

What is Pinterest? It calls itself “The World’s Catalog of Ideas” and that is exactly what it is. Pinterest is a website full of images that are categorized, the most popular images rise to the top of their category and individual users can choose to like, comment or ‘pin.’ Pins are visual bookmarks, that if clicked, will link back to the site the image came from. This results in the most creative and original images becoming popular, and by association the websites they came from. Pinterest advertising for business is effective as users visit it for purchasing inspiration, and not to be social.

With over 150 million people a month using Pinterest for planning, the platform brings significant benefits to those with products to sell. Wayfair.com found that Pinners spend 50% more on average than other social channels. With this in mind, what does it take to convert people looking at your pins?
