How to Use Pinterest Management Services Like Analytics to Grow Your Business in 2021
Analyzing your data can help you improve what you’re already doing and drive better results. But what should you actually measure, and where should you start? At White Glove Social Media our job as Pinterest Account Managers is to provide month end reports to our clients so they know what’s working and what’s not. This is important. If we don’t make the time to analyze the type of content we’re saving, creating, and so forth on Pinterest through the Pinterest management services analytics how do you really know you’re maximizing your results? You wouldn’t. Not good. So do yourself a favor. At the end of each month make sure you do the following:
What does this mean? The number of times people saved your pin to a board. This is an indication that you’ve created compelling content that people are planning to return to or do something with in the future.
2. LINK CLICKS
What does this mean? Pinners that clicked on pins that link back to a website. This is content that people want to learn more about, take action on, or to buy now or in the very near future.
Pinterest Management Services Expert Actionable Tips: Because these are short-term analytics you need to act quickly. Here’s what I recommend you do with the following information.
1. Add more of this type of content to your boards.
2. If your own content shows up can you re-purpose your content quickly and easily. It could be as simple as using a similar kind of image and using the same text-overlay on a different image or creating an infographic, a checklist, etc.
3. Create evergreen blog posts around your most popular topics. However, if the holiday, event, or observance has passed exclude those.
4. Create new products.
5. Highlight this type of content in the front of your store and your website. Look at how World Market showcases their trending pins.
6. Make sure you have these products in stock so people can buy them on your site.
7. Consider these pins if you want to purchase Pinterest ads.
Avoid panicking if your pins aren’t getting high engagement the week you save them. Your pins are discovered long after they’re added to Pinterest so you may not see the full impact of recently added content for several months. BuzzFeed found that more than half of their traffic from Pinterest comes from posts published more than 2 months prior.
The lesson is this. We need to be patient. Give your pins time to bake and make sure you are scheduling your pins correctly so that you get more engagement. In that way, your pins get found on the top of Pinterest’s search engine and this increases your chances of getting more clicks to your website and/or blog.
3. AUDIENCE INSIGHTS
Audience Insights reveals what your existing and potential customers are interested in based on their Pinterest behavior. The insights surfaced by Pinterest are powered by the Taste Graph and reflect the active consideration mindset of Pinners, incorporating actions like searches and saves.
