Unveiling the full potential of Pinterest

I am quite satisfied with Pinterest and personally, I have been using it for years already, approximately. I remember at first when it appeared, it was so fancy to have a Pinterest account. Any topic we talked about - we used pinterest, if we had to choose a dress for the corporate party we went to Pinterest. New trendy make-up for the evening - again Pinterest, fancy nails - again Pinterest would suggest great links to explore more.

PROS

Pinterest is underestimated these days, which is a big mistake. There are more popular platforms nowadays, better advertised commercially. Pinterest is for like-minded people, creating a big and friendly community and this is perfect for providing traffic. Due to the other social media integrations, any information or post is easily shareable. The content on Pinterest is directed to the target market as there always is a Call-To-Action (CTA). Every time they click on a pin that interested them. We equally use Pinterest in my company alongside other social media platforms available. Filter bubbles or algorithms of Pinterest are amazing, when it comes to research finding what you need. The search is narrowed to the extent when you find the relevant information.

CONS

I would mention the customer service, initially, we tried to contact them with no success. Though, still using pinterest search option, you can find an answer to the question you wanted to ask the customer service.

A Realtime professional Marketing tool(Pinterest)

I generally really like and appreciate that Pinterest has made content marketing and promoting really simple and aesthetically pleasing.

PROS

Using the Pinterest Business account, I mostly appreciate the analytics provided for all pins created. As a content manager, these analytics offer me with insight into the pins that are doing well and the amount of engagement received by the created pins. This has helped me grow my audience reach even on other platforms since Pinterest allows for seamless integration with other social sites.

CONS

I don't like that the recently introduced idea pins do not have provision for adding links to products or websites.

Reasons for switching to Pinterest

Pinterest had a better integration with other social media sites.

a good visual discovery engine

For me Pinterest is a personal platform, one that you go to in order to take time for yourself and not for the sake of connecting with your loved ones. Because of this, influencers are discovered differently on Pinterest, it is primarily by their content that users identify them, not by their reputation or identity. Indeed, a Pinterest user will not spontaneously search for influencers in the application's search bar but will discover inspiring content created by professional content creators as they use the platform.

PROS

Pinterest has a beautiful visual aspect, and it's also a very intuitive tool to look for inspiration on many different topics: interior design, hairstyles, recipes, tattoos, sports exercises, etc. You search, you organize, you select products, you take info from the platform to plan your future projects. It allows you to get many new ideas.

CONS

I don't like the constant ads and algorithm changes. Nevertheless Pinterest is an interesting social network for businesses and brands that have a target audience of women or children. Companies targeting a more male audience will have a hard time leveraging this social network for their digital communication.

I recommend Pinterest as an editing tool

I really like the quality of the images, the simplicity of use, and the variety. Editing my promotional material is more practical than it used to be, since I discovered this excellent tool

Pinterest : A creative’s addiction.

I’ve used Pinterest for years and this app is absolute a gem to explore and to find new content.

PROS

This app is stunning. There’s a category for everyone on this app as it is very inclusive. I mostly use Pinterest for inspiration for creative and crafty DIY projects. I absolutely love the content this app provides. I can view various boards and gather ideas! Although I do not own a business, I can definitely see how marketing on this app would be very beneficial for exposure.

CONS

Honestly, navigating Pinterest was a bit overwhelming at first. It took trial and error until I adapted to its interface. Now I’m a pro. There is also a lower amount of active users in comparison to other social media apps out there. So it may be more challenging to gather an audience.

Reasons for switching to Pinterest

Although Instagram has a larger audience, It was not Inspiring me the creative boards and ideas that were on Pinterest.
