Social Media Training for Pinterest: An Overview
Pinterest is like a virtual bulletin or corkboard that allows users to find and curate images and videos. Unlike other photo-sharing sites, the focus here is on discovering and curating other people’s content, not on storing your own.
This visual element of the site is one of the reasons why it captures the interest of so many companies, from retailers to photographers and designers, who use it as a portfolio or product catalogue.
Customers can state which products they love (bottles of alcohol, cars, cakes) and want to buy for themselves, and their friends can further endorse them by putting their photos on their boards.
Master Pinterest Marketing to grow your business!
You can join Pinterest as a business that lets you know what content on your website is most popular on Pinterest. We will help you get comfortable with the platform as a user, and then you can use that knowledge to work on your business presence.
One thing you can do before the course is to use it to get inspired: all that visual content will surely bring to mind ideas for marketing campaigns, photos, products, and other content. Sign up, browse, and let the site help you brainstorm your projects.

Pinterest Promoted Pins
Promoted pins is a paid advertising option for Pinterest. It allows you to promote your brand to an audience interested in all obvious things. Pinterest’s advertising platform runs on a CPC (cost per click) model that allows you to pay only when someone clicks a pin.
Promoted pins offer an opportunity to reach your audience through demographics and contextual factors. You can get the most value out of the promoted pins by extending your reach to people who might otherwise not see your pins. Once they’ve gotten their attention, you can turn that into social engagement, leadership, and sales.
A Promoted Pin offers a simple advertising module. To start with, you will select a pin that you want to use to promote your brand. Next, you’ll set your goals, and then you’ll choose your audience (potential pinners). Then you’ll make a CPC bid for your campaign and budget. We will look at all of this on our course.
