What are Pinterest place pins?
Pinterest had this to say about Place pins:
Place Pins were designed to combine the beautiful imagery of a travel magazine with the utility of a map online so you can share it with friends.
So what does all of this mean?
To sum up things, Pinterest place pins are a way to create pinboards on Pinterest and include a map, location information such as a phone number, and an address that you can share with your followers or invite others to collaborate with you on to curate great places that people should visit.
To use Pinterest place pins, follow the instructions below.
A lot of people think that Pinterest is only good for a handful of things – saving and sharing fashion, designs, and recipes you find online. Don’t let it fool you though. You can use Pinterest for business. You can even use Pinterest for ecommerce.
Can you really sell products over the holidays through social media? This collection of holiday shopping statistics provides a look into how customers like to shop through social media.
Personally, I believe that a lot of users use social media channels to do their holiday shopping.
This collection of holiday shopping statistics can help to give you a better idea on what channels you should consider using to sell products through social media.
Remember, you want to be sure to always ask your audience what they prefer. If you try selling products through one social media channel and you don’t have a strong presence and your customers don’t use the site much, don’t expect strong holiday sales figures.
So where are most users doing their holiday shopping at? Is it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or another social media channel? Let’s find out.
Here are a few of my favorite holiday shopping statistics.
Pinterest is a terrific resource to drive traffic to your website or blog. In fact, I find a lot more traffic comes from Pinterest than it does from other social media channels like Facebook. One way to leverage your Pinterest account to drive traffic back to your website is to create great boards. Each time you add a new board though, remember to go back and rearrange boards on Pinterest.
Why rearrange boards on Pinterest?
If you’ve ever been to the grocery store, one thing you’ll notice is that the products the store wants you to buy are always at eye level. The less popular ones (and usually less expensive ones) are on the bottom shelves, out of the your line of sight. This is because they want you to focus on the products they’ve put on the middle shelves. Crazy, but true.
So why are your Pinterest boards not arranged this way?
As the number of boards on your Pinterest account grows, it is important to go back and rearrange boards on Pinterest. Everytime you create a new pin board, it is added to the bottom. This means your followers (and any new users) won’t see it if they go to your Pinterest channel because it will be below the fold and out of sight.
Because of this, you’ll want to go back and rearrange your boards so that you have the most important ones showing at the top. This way your followers won’t have to search through your boards. At the same time, this gives you the opportunity to put your best boards at the top – the ones you pin to often or want your followers to see and repin content from.
Don’t forget about your business needs
As the needs of your business change, it is important to reflect these changes on your social media channels as well.
For example, if you are known for cooking, arrange your Pinterest cooking boards at the top and the boards you use less often towards the bottom.
While you’re rearranging your boards on Pinterest, be sure to set a board cover for your boards too. This way they’re easily identifiable and stand out.
