Last week Pinterest launched its new web analytics tool which makes it easy for you to track pins and repins from your website. This tool is a great addition as you can now study the most popular images on your website and use the information to drive more engagement and traffic. Below I have written steps on how to get started with the web analytics tool, what everything means and how you can use it to promote your business…
Have you heard of Pinterest? Is this a social media that interests you? Would you like to get started, meet new people, share content and market yourself on Pinterest?
This post will help you get started with Pinterest, so that you can use it for the many benefits it provides – whether it’s just to meet new people, increase website traffic, sell a product, etc.
What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a social media site where you share pictures and images. In Pinterest each user (Pinner) has pin boards where the pictures they have pinned are saved. The user can come back to these pins and read them later. Even the followers of the user can check out the users Pin boards. These images can normally be found on other websites. Sometimes these images are directly uploaded.
Getting started With Pinterest…
1. Get an Invitation: You need an invitation from a Pinterest user to Join Pinterest. If you have any friends on Pinterest you could ask them to invite you. Otherwise, leave a comment below along with your email address and I will send you an invitation to join Pinterest.
You can also register on their site and wait for an invitation, but this could take days and weeks. It took me weeks to get one.
2. Complete Your Profile: Once you get an invitation, you can visit their website and sign up for an account.
If you want to sign up for a new account on Pinterest you need to have a facebook or Twitter account as it asks you whether you want to connect with your Twitter account or if you want to connect with your facebook account.
