It's a recommendation engine, and a source of widespread awareness and sales. Expressing themselves through pictures and images relevant to their lives. These are your buyer personas This activity is comparable to: self-identification with product, focus group insight, active consumer hand raising Reminding themselves of things they want to do, buy or revisit. These are your near-future buyers. This activity is comparable to: bookmarking, creating online wishlists Sharing and recommending things that they think others should know about.

This activity is comparable to: targeted online searches, content downloads, product research And all of them are acting as members of an online word-of-mouth marketing team that's directing buyers, doers and seekers to your online and mobile properties. So how can eTailers and Marketers use Pinterest to spread the word about their sites and prepare for an increase in qualified traffic once they do? Create boards that help you tell your story to the audiences you want to tell it to. Like any other good approach to marketing, you don't want to use Pinterest to talk about Hire a photographer and/or a great graphic designer. yourself directly; you want to use it to appeal to the people you cater to by showing them that you get them, you are like them, and that you offer those things that will fill a gap in their lives. Do this by sharing things you like, things you know they would like, things that are helpful, and things that represent your promise to them. Tell your story by telling theirs. Not only do Pinterest users have to like your product, they've gotta like the image you represent it with. Create a Pinterest account for your brand, company or self. Tell people you're on Pinterest by adding the icon to your site. Presumably you've got Facebook and Twitter icons on your site already; you're going to want to add a Pinterest icon right along with them so people will follow your updates. The more people who see them, the more likely they are to get repinned and liked. Request an Invite » Pair every product, page or important piece of content you want to draw attention to with a great image. Membership is currently by invite only, but you can request one. Start there. Product and content awareness is driven by images here, so no matter how great your offerings, they're not going to spread if they're not paired with an image users want to identify with and share with the world. Add a Pinterest share tab to your great images. Next to Facebook and Twitter, Pinterest is easily the sharing option that marketers and etailers are scrambling to get on their sites the fastest. Test, target and segment your website content based on what you learn. Have you ever wanted to know what your customers look like, act like and care about? Here's a great place to learn all of that. Once you are more familiar with your individual customers or even your buyer personas, you can test and target specifically for them. And knowing that different buyer personas are going to be drawn to certain products, you can create custom landing pages on your site, grouped by product type, that will cater to incoming referrals from Pinterest. These landing pages might contain calls-to-action for other products this buyer persona tends to be interested in, as well as content created with them in mind, etc. Encourage engagement and pinning activity by allowing others to post their pins to your profile. By doing this, users are more likely to post more of your products because each time they do, they get more exposure for their own profiles. Like other public social media networks, Pinterest offers users the immediate gratification that comes with knowing people have taken an interest in what they have to say. So offer them that by letting them pin to your site (and make sure they know that's the case). In return, they'll post more of your stuff.
