In this post, I will walk you through 5 reasons why Pinterest is awesome for business owners!
Before we dive into the 5 reasons why Pinterest is good for business, here are some numbers on Pinterest and its potential for brands and product sellers. WOW! Pinterest is the place to be for brands and product sellers, because Pinners use it to do research and decide what to buy.

Say whaaat? Yes! Compared to other social platforms Pinterest requires WAY less time and attention to get you fabulous results. Here's why:
You can fully automate your pinning with the tailwind app. This app lets you automatically pin your pins, and the app decides the best time to pin for you. In this way, it will cost you very little time to still pin several times a day. All you do regularly is create new Pins and add them to tailwind (once), the rest is done by tailwind.
Interaction like liking and commenting is way less important on Pinterest, which also means it requires less of your 24x7 attention than other social networks.
Related to what we talked about before, Pins live on Pinterest for a long time! A pin you post today can still get you free traffic in a few years! Actually, one of my best performing pins is almost 2 years old now and it gets me a daily stream of traffic to my website. No need to come up with new content several times a day, a Pin that gets traction will sit on Pinterest and can bring you new traffic for a very long time.
Disclosure: if you use the link above to sign up for your free trial of Tailwind and you continue using it after the trial, I will get a free month of using Tailwind, at no extra cost to you.
Pinterest is actually quite easy to learn compared to other social networks. Creating pins (they need to be vertical images) is super easy with canva.
