If you are part of a lifestyle, hospitality or renovation business then this platform is a great addition to your digital marketing strategy.

So, here are our reasons as to why it may be time to start considering this growing site for your business.

Pinterest allows an image to connect directly to a selling platform, meaning that it is even easier to see a direct correlation between pins and sales. The site is very unique in its ability to convert a browsing public into a buying customer.

Think of Pinterest as a kind of Google for lifestyle images. Customers who haven’t previously considered your brand have the ability to find your images on Pinterest and directly buy from you. So, why not give this effective platform a go?


2. Traffic

Pinterest is more effective than any other social media in driving traffic back to a linked website. As a major goal for most businesses, this means the site can’t be ignored in your digital marketing strategy.
