Pinterest - The best app for visual and graphic content.

My experience with pinterest has been very good because absolutely all the images that I download on a subject that I like come from there, my wallpapers and images for creative ideas.

Pros

The pinterest interface is its strongest point for me, an application consumer, the interface is attached to the size of the images that appear on the screen, its search method is very effective and above all the creation of boards to save images that we like them is an innovative and good idea. The pinterest recommendation system also seems very good to me, since in a short time it can be adapted to our favorite topics.

Cons

One of the cons that I see in pinterest is that sometimes images of poor quality are found, I believe that this can be improved by verifying the quality of the images that are being uploaded.

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.

Pinterest is going through an identity crisis

I'm hoping Pinterest revisits what made them unique in the first place. They were a visual search engine that benefited the content creator and the user. Now, both are exiting the platform.

Pros

Like most content creators, we loved Pinterest because if you created quality content with the right image dimensions, descriptions, keywords, and were on the right group boards, you had great traffic to your website. Well, now that's been taken away. Most content creators will tell you that their traffic went massively down with the new changes in Pinterest.

Cons

It feels like they don't know what they're doing anymore. Pinterest used to be a visual search engine. Now they're trying to be Instagram by having stories and trying all different routes instead of what made them popular in the first place. Due to this, content creators don't want to waste as much time on Pinterest and users don't either.

Best traffic Source

When I first started blogging, my fear was traffic, but pinterest solved that. All I had to do was create an attractive post which you can easily do with canva. It also integrates perfectly with canva. You could design on canvas and post directly to pinterest without having to login in. It also integrates perfectly with tailwind, allowing you schedule pins for the best time your audience is active.

Pros

What I love most about pinterest is its ability to drive people to my website. Just by clicking on my pins, people are taken there. It is my number one source of traffic as my website is new and trying to rank. It is the best because your pins keep ranking on pinterest for life. Not like other social media platform where you constantly have to post in order to stay relevant. I love the fact that pinterest has an extension that allows you to pick a picture by one click and post it directly on any board of your chose. Super helpful

Cons

The least part of this software is the metric data calculation. It never gets the right data of the amount of people visiting your website.

Reasons for switching to Pinterest

With instagram, you need to constantly post to stay relevant. It was exhausting.

The best but not the most popular.

Pinterest is a nice app to use, it does offer you an endless virtual word to surf in and find pleasant content.

Pros

Great mobile app. User-friendly interface. Linkable with almost any website.

Cons

Lower amount of active users. What it must be an advantage (the user interface) it is a downside to deploy specific advertisement. There are many pictures running at the same time, and it does reduce that attention you want the audience to pay to your publication.

Reasons for choosing Pinterest

We actually did choose Instagram mostly of the times to deploy advertisement and organic publications due to the big active users worlwide.
