#1. Pinterest Tips – Competition is Great!
Okay someone was saying to me recently, isn’t there so much competition on Pinterest. Wont that mean I won’t get any? What?
Listen my friend, I said, people are going to compete with you in all types of businesses and internet marketing is no exception. Pinterest is on the internet and you cannot get more global that that!
So, whatever you happen to be offering online, and in whatever niche, there will always be people going up against you. You can let that competition scare you or you can push forward and be stronger because of it. It’s the same which change.
With Pinterest changing stuff almost on a weekly basis…well monthly okay! #rollseyes One can either say I’m done or go with the flow.
By the way there has been another Pinterest algorithm change in the last 2 weeks!
So instead of caving in, take heed from your competitors and you will succeed before you realize it. Internet marketers need to realize that all platforms online are constantly changing things up to stay afloat as well.
When you understand how the Basic Principles of online marketing work esp. on a platform like pinterest, you’ll be able to avoid simple blunders and you’ll be able to operate effectively.
That’s why people create resources to help you cut your journey shorter and we have done that for you on Pinterest.
To step up and match or even beat your competitors, analyse their strategies and why they’re doing what they’re doing that way. You will always have competition so you should just accept it and learn from their mistakes.
The better you know the other side, the higher will be the chances of you being successful. You will find at times that getting ahead of your competition seems impossible, but with internet marketing this will never last.
Your competition is doing something different and you need to find that out if you want to avoid common blunders. And on Pinterest a small tweak can be your saving grace.
If you can point out the mistakes before you make them, you’ll make the right choices and your business will last.
#2. Pinterest Tips – Quality Over Quantity:
Now I am sure if you are like me, you track your actions, right? You do check your numbers, Business is the right numbers game.
Then you will have noticed, if you haven’t yet that sometimes Pinterest traffic is pants…
And this comes from someone who loves Pinterest. So why is this?
Because Pinterest users are finicky. They’re mostly searching for that bargain, they dont hang around for long, causing atrocious bounce rates for many a new website pinner!
Well, if you shift your focus from wanting to be just popular and reaching millions of just about anyone, to Attracting Loyal Fans and Serving them with your targeted offers you will make more sales…You will start to attract more targeted followers and views. And the bounce rate wont matter…
The highly untargeted traffic will only result in a High Bounce rate for you and affect you if you know not what to do! And that’s NOT what you want!
If this is you, then this may help. Imagine its you searching for something on Pinterest.
What would you do?
What is your intention when you login to your Pinterest?
Are you looking for answers to a specific Need, Question, desire?
Then how do you turn this round for your audience?
What would be their next question.
In other words, put yourself in their situation and provide what they need, you will find people stay longer on your site and visit more of your amazing content, and pages, reducing your bounce rate…And you get to serve them more as they will come back and buy!
They too are looking for answer so they will bounce if your resource doesn’t answer that question! Sometimes I have like 6 sites open and I am searching for a specific thing…
So, understand your audience needs and you will attract better quality traffic from Pinterest, traffic that actually converts!
For you my friend with an e-commerce understand that you website will always have a higher bounce rate. WHY?
Because it’s an e-store. People come browse and go or they come buy and go. There is nothing else much keeping them on your page unless you have a blog on it!
The average time is less than a minute on an eComm site. BUT here is the sweet news; Most people always come back. Imagine amazon, Yup!
Most people visit an ecomm site 3-5 times before they convert aka Buy! And that my friend is why people are able to sell on other sites like Shopify, Etsy, eBay etc!Most people visit the site 3-5 times before they convert aka Buy!
