Why Pinterest Can Be a Game-Changer for Your Small Business Pinterest Text

Friend, I want to let you in on a little secret. There’s a hidden gem in the world of digital marketing that not nearly enough people are talking about. It’s not Google. It’s not Facebook Ads. It’s not Instagram Reels (although I totally love those)!

It’s Pinterest.

Pinterest can be a game-changer for your business. But the sad reality is: not nearly enough business owners are taking advantage of this traffic-driving tool, and it’s costing them. 

I want you to be on the other side of that narrative. Why? Because Pinterest, when done right, will transform your business in amazing ways. And if you start using Pinterest now, you’ll be leagues ahead of the competition once they catch up! Here’s what I mean …

Most Businesses Don’t Use Pinterest – Here’s Why Not

There are actually three main reasons why businesses fail to use Pinterest: fear, uncertainty, and assumptions. And if I’m being honest, I totally get it. At first, Pinterest can feel like an unknown beast, but if you take time to learn it, you’ll reap incredible benefits. That’s why I want to speak into each of these three categories to put your mind at ease.

Fear 

As a general rule, small businesses fear digital marketing. In some weird way, digital marketing feels vulnerable – like you’re putting your business out there in the open for the whole world to see. And honestly, that’s partially true. 

The good news about Pinterest is that it’s a pretty safe territory because it’s already full of so many creative ideas and resources. Pinterest allows potential customers to stumble upon your work in a low-pressure environment while simultaneously reaping a major reward for you – new leads.

Uncertainty 

Pinterest isn’t a new tool, but it’s newly growing in the world of digital marketing. So many business owners just don’t know how to use it.

Luckily, Pinterest isn’t terribly hard to learn. And once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to create systems and workflows to make Pinterest do some pretty heavy lifting for your business in terms of leads.

Assumptions 

A lot of businesses make assumptions about Pinterest. I’m here to dispel those myths. 

See, Pinterest entered the arena as a unique social media tool for users to “pin” ideas and inspiration. Because of that, it’s easy to assume that Pinterest is just the home for InstantPot recipes and DIY infinity scarfs. But it’s so much more.

Pinterest is actually just as reputable of a search engine as Google, so when users search on Pinterest, they’ll be exposed to your business in a seamless way. That means more leads for your business and more raving customers, too.

How to Use Pinterest for Your Business

As I said, I totally get the initial feeling of intimidation you might experience when it comes to Pinterest. But the reality is, Pinterest is much more “in-reach” than you might think.

I always teach my clients to apply my TASK framework to various aspects of their business, and Pinterest is no exception. The TASK framework makes every aspect of your business feel much, much easier. 

If you want to learn more about the TASK framework or using Pinterest to grow your business, click here to schedule a call. During my coaching sessions, I walk business owners just like you through how to use tools like Pinterest, Dubsado, and more to optimize and streamline (aka Automate) their business and get a major return on their investment (so that they feel like a Magical Automated Wizard even if they are a Muggle!)

How Does Pinterest Grow Your Business?

Pinterest will certainly help grow your business. But you do need to realize something: it’s a long game strategy. Don’t expect your Pinterest to go viral overnight. Instead, you need to think about Pinterest content from two perspectives: the content that will drive traffic immediately and the content that will drive traffic consistently.

By covering both bases, leads will come to your business for both timely content and your evergreen content, and that means your Pinterest strategy is working.
