Why You Need Pinterest for Your Business: Oh. my. goodness…. bloggers, business owners, female entrepreneurs, I have to ring the bell for Pinterest! I’ll admit it – I was late to this party! And I also have to tell you that I wish I hadn’t been! Pinterest has been a GAME CHANGER for my business and my blog. And here’s why!

Oh. my. goodness.... bloggers, business owners, female entrepreneurs, I have to ring the bell for Pinterest! I'll admit it - I was late to the Pinterest party! {Did you know that Pinterest has only been around since 2010? Wikipedia says so, so it must be true. Right?!} And I also have to tell you that I wish I hadn't been! Pinterest has been a GAME CHANGER for my business and my blog. And here's why!

Pinterest is evergreen.

In today’s instant gratification society, where a Periscope lasts 24 hours, an Instagram post 6 hours, and a Tweet only 15 minutes, a social media marketer {or even an end-user} can be left feeling overwhelmed. Can you really be everywhere at once? {The answer is no!}

Enter Pinterest. The beauty of Pinterest is that it’s an Evergreen platform, which means that a pin hangs out forever, and you don’t have to continue to re-pin it for it to keep working for you!

Pinterest is a search engine.

This means that the same SEO strategies that work for blogging will work with the Pinterest search engine, too! With simple and effective marketing techniques and strategies, you now have the power to have your blog posts read, your YouTube videos seen, and your other social platforms cross-promoted using the power of Pinterest.

You don't need a gazillion followers.

The beautiful thing about Pinterest is that you don’t need thousands of followers or even hundreds of pins for it to start having a huge impact on your business! My personal account is a great example of this. With only 500 followers at the time of this post, you might wonder why I'm raving about this platform, or if I could even have that much of a reach. But even with a limited personal following, my pins are being viewed and repinned hundreds {or more} of times per week.
