To understand why Pinterest is important to your business, you first need to understand how it works. Pinterest is in a class all its own when it comes to social media. Essentially, Pinterest is a place where people can pin different ideas that they get from around the web onto their boards.
Say, for example, I’m in the market for a new sofa and while looking online, I find this stunning architectural piece that speaks to my heart. So, I pin it on my Dream Home board. Then, someone who’s following me, sees my amazing pin and also pins it on their board. At that same time, a random person searches for Dream Home and also comes across my pin and pins it on their board.
As you can see, Pinterest has a number of ways to get your products and services visible to the right customers.
How to create a Pinterest account
