PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Sep 4, 2012) - In recent months, use of the social network known as Pinterest has expanded a great deal; the unique website has even been ranked similarly to popular sites Twitter and Facebook. The website reinvents the corkboard, giving online users from all over the world a chance to 'pin' their favorite images, recipes, websites, videos, and music and share the content with other users. A recent article from Practical Ecommerce observes the many benefits this social network has; including the opportunity for affiliate marketers to expand their customer reach. Affiliate marketing education resource, My Place for Hosting, notes that Pinterest is a great opportunity for new marketers to reach consumers in an expanding marketplace.
One representative from My Place for Hosting states, "It is important for every marketer to stay in tune with social marketing trends. Anytime a new site -- such as Pinterest -- comes around, it is essential for marketers to carve out opportunities within the growing space." The article notes how successful combining marketing with pinning can be and states, "In May 2012, Mark Hayes wrote in the Shopify blog that the number of pin-generated orders had quadrupled in just six months for merchants using Shopify ecommerce platform. The actual number of pin-powered sales was still relatively low, but good relative to some other social media sites like Twitter, for example. Separately, reports in June and July of this year, suggest that Pinterest drives more site traffic [referrals] than Twitter or Google+."
The article makes suggestions on how new users can go about using Pinterest to increase affiliate activity. It recommends that users create unique lifestyle content to attract curious consumers and socialize with other affiliates to learn from their marketing techniques. In a recent press statement, My Place for Hosting comments, "Pinterest is very unique from Facebook and Twitter, because there is a great opportunity for personalization. By creating unique content and becoming more involved with users, affiliate marketers can observe trends and create marketing tactics in response. The key to any social marketing effort is to attract followers through unique material; if affiliates integrate the social implications that their marketed products have, they may be more likely to generate sales from pinners than other popular social networks."
