how to use pinterest for your business
Pinterest has over 150 million active monthly users.
And 87% of those pinners have purchased a product because of Pinterest.
Those stats alone, are enough evidence that your business should be on Pinterest.
Here are 3 quick and easy ways to increase your business presence on Pinterest.
1. Group Boards:
Group boards on Pinterest allow you to network with other consultants. So let’s say you have a friend who sells Pampered Chef. And YOU sell Thirty-One Gifts. Create a board for “Organizing your kitchen” and both of you add pins related to that board. Now all of HER customers see your pins, and all of YOUR customers see her pins.
You can do this with EVERY company out there:
~Scentsy and Thirty-One bathroom makeover
~Mary Kay and Thirty-One makeup ideas
~Clever container and Thirty-One closet organization
~Posh and Thirty-One travel must haves
The list of possibilities is truly endless
Here’s how to do that:
2. Link to other Social Media Sites:
You can use Pinterest to increase traffic to your other social media sites.
Post something on your business page and link people to your Facebook Business Page.
Post something on Instagram and link them to your Instagram profile.
Post something on Twitter and link them to your Twitter profile.
By doing this, you’re utilizing the traffic on Pinterest to increase your social presence on EVERY social media site!

So if you’re making product videos or business idea demos, those need to go on Pinterest! Graphics are great, but guess what? Videos are BETTER!
