Social media can be a great traffic source for almost any online business. The best one for you will depend on your customers, your niche, and your marketing preferences. Pinterest is one of the biggest driver of referral traffic according to Shareaholic.com. Despite the massive traffic that you or your business can get from Pinterest, most likely you are not giving it as much attention as you would Facebook, Twitter, or even LinkedIn.
This is mainly because it’s a unique network. Every single post on it is an image (with a short optional description). Pinterest can be an amazing traffic source as long as you can create some sort of visual content in your niche. And although it takes some time to learn how to use Pinterest effectively, it’s pretty simple once you understand it.
2 reasons why Pinterest is an amazing traffic source
Reason #1 – Pins have great longevity: One of the problems with most social networks is that whatever you post stays visible only for a short period of time: anywhere from an hour to a few days at the most.
Reason #2 – Pinterest was designed for sharing: One of the reasons why pins live for so long is that users are always looking for more things to share.
