So, in today’s blog post, We are going to be talking about how you can use Pinterest to drive traffic to your blog! The traffic building strategies that we are going to discuss are all updated for 2020 meaning they will work, as long as you put in the effort and the work!
There are two strategies that we are going to be showing you. The first involves finding relevant content on Pinterest that is in your niche and is already proven to be popular. The second is through affiliate marketing and promotion.
The best way to find content that is already proven to be popular is to search within Pinterest for a search term related to your niche. Let’s say that your blog niche is all about saving money and financial advice. You can go to the Pinterest search bar and write “save money” and it will generate a list of results that are all related to that search query.
Content that has a lot of re-pins shows us that it is popular amongst the people of Pinterest, therefore if you create content that is similar to this (or the same content but a new and improved version) you should be able to achieve success, right? Of course! We have used this method time and time again, so give it a try…we are sure it will pay off for you!
This next method involves affiliate marketing & promotion of products and services. If you are not sure what affiliate marketing is..then let us explain it to you. Affiliate marketing is when you promote a product or service and receive a commission for each sale that is made through your link.
When it comes to using Affiliate Marketing & Promotion on Pinterest to grow your traffic, it lies in creating content around the offer, rather than linking your pin directly to your affiliate link. Why should you do this? Because it not only allows you to give more information on the affiliate offer, but it increases your website traffic and the visibility of your website adverts. This means that even if someone does not decide to purchase the affiliate offer, you still receive some form of income from ad revenue.
So, that is two ways that you can use Pinterest to increase your blog traffic. Make sure to give them a go and if you want any more valuable information on marketing, be sure to have a look at our other blog posts!
