Pinterest Analytics: Your Secret Weapon for Explosive Growth (and How to Use It Like a Pro!)

Ready to unleash the full potential of your Pinterest marketing? We’re diving deep into Pinterest analytics – your golden ticket to understanding what makes your audience tick.

Forget the “just post pretty pictures and hope for the best” approach. We’re talking about strategic moves that’ll turn your Pinterest into a lead-generating machine.

Why Pinterest Analytics Matter (Like, Really Matter)

Think of Pinterest analytics as your crystal ball. They show you:

  • Who’s vibing with your brand: Discover the demographics, interests, and even the devices your ideal clients use.
  • What content makes them swoon: Uncover the pins and topics that are sparking the most engagement.
  • How they’re interacting with your pins: Are they clicking through to your website? Are they saving your pins for later?

Armed with this intel, you can tailor your Pinterest strategy to perfection, serving up content that resonates like a love song.

Pinterest Membership

Pinterest Strategy Club

A community membership that helps you to learn Pinterest live.  There's a mini course to optimize your Pinterest to have it help you grow your business.  There are two live calls a month, a Pinning Session for accountability and a Q+A session. Also, Pin templates each month to download.

Your Pinterest Analytics Cheat Sheet

Don’t get overwhelmed by the data overload! Here are the most important metrics for service-based businesses like yours:

Impressions

How many times your pins have appeared in feeds, searches, and category pages.

Pin Clicks

How often people click on your pins to get a closer look.

Outbound Clicks

The holy grail! This is how many people click through to your website from your pins.

Total Sessions from Pinterest (Google Analytics)

How many website visits you’re getting from Pinterest traffic.

Pin Clicks vs. Outbound Clicks: Your Dynamic Duo

Think of Pin Clicks as the initial spark – someone’s intrigued! Outbound Clicks are where the magic happens – they’re the people who are genuinely interested in your services and are taking that next step to learn more.

By tracking these two metrics, you can pinpoint the content that’s not only catching eyes but also driving real, potential-client traffic to your site.

How to Use Your Pinterest Data Like a Boss

  1. Spot the Winners: Which pins are getting the most clicks and driving traffic? Make more of that kind of content!
  2. Ditch the Duds: If a pin isn’t performing, don’t be afraid to give it a refresh or try a different approach.
  3. Plan Ahead with Pinterest Trends: See what’s trending and create content that aligns with those hot topics.
  4. Refine and Repeat: Pinterest is always evolving. Keep checking your analytics regularly to adjust your strategy and stay ahead of the game.

The Bottom Line

Remember, Pinterest isn’t just about pretty pictures – it’s about connecting with your dream clients and growing your business. Let’s make Pinterest magic happen! ✨

Supercharge Your Service Business on Pinterest: Must-Have Boards!

Must-Have Boards for Pinterest as a Service Provider! Pins for blog by Jen Vazquez Media Pinterest Manager and Pinterest Marketing Strategist

Must-Have Boards for Pinterest as a Service Provider!

Are you a service provider looking to boost your online presence and attract more clients? Pinterest has got your back! I know it can feel a bit overwhelming at first, but fear not, my friend. I’m here to help you navigate the exciting world of Pinterest boards. The burning question on your mind is probably, “What Pinterest boards should I have?” Well, let’s dive in and find out together!

Understanding Pinterest Boards

Picture this: Pinterest boards are like virtual treasure chests filled with ideas from all over the internet. You can save images, articles, and more from any website out there (unless the website owner puts up a “no pinning” sign, like a digital bouncer). There are three main types of Pinterest boards:

  1. Public boards: These boards are open for everyone to see. Show off your expertise and let your content shine!
  2. Secret boards: Need to keep things hush-hush? Secret boards are your go-to. Only you and your trusted contributors can access them. All your personal Pinterest pinning should be done on secret boards. You can still pin to these boards.
  3. Archived boards: For your eyes only! These boards are purely personal, perfect for gathering inspiration or saving private gems.  You can’t pin to them but they aren’t lost.

Why Pinterest Boards Matter for Service Providers

Using my proven Pinterest Marketing Method, I help hyper-busy, female service providers create one marketing workflow to book more clients and increase their income and impact… in about an hour a week

Now, here’s where the magic happens. Each time you add a pin to a board, it gets exposed to your followers and the followers of that specific board. Imagine that—targeted exposure without spending a dime! But hold your horses, we need to set up strong and relevant boards right from the start to make the most of this golden opportunity.

Must-Have Boards for Pinterest as a Service Provider! Pins for blog by Jen Vazquez Media Pinterest Manager and Pinterest Marketing Strategist

Step 1: Evaluate Your Service Categories

Let’s start by identifying the core categories of your service business. Think about the services you offer and the expertise you bring to the table. We’re talking broad categories here, so you can cast a wide net. For example, if you’re a social media consultant, your categories might include:

  1. Social Media Marketing
  2. Content Strategy
  3. Branding
  4. Digital Advertising
  5. Analytics

Feel free to jot down your categories on a digital spreadsheet or a good old-fashioned piece of paper.

Step 2: Crafting the Perfect Pinterest Boards

Now, let’s get creative and strategize our board setup. The key here is to maximize visibility and reach. Aim to save each pin to at least five relevant public boards. More boards mean more chances for your content to go viral!

For each category, you’ll want a minimum of five boards. Remember, you can have up to 500 boards on your Pinterest account, but we’ll start with the essentials. Don’t go overboard all at once—pace yourself like a Pinterest pro.

Step 3: Board Naming with a Dash of Keywords

Here’s where we sprinkle some Pinterest magic dust on our boards. We want them to be relevant and search engine-friendly. To choose the perfect board titles, let’s tap into what Pinterest users are searching for.

Start by typing your first category into the Pinterest search bar. You’ll see a dropdown list of popular keywords related to your category. These suggestions are pure gold! Select the ones that best align with your content. 

Remember, you can rearrange the keywords to make them sound natural while still being search-friendly. Let your creativity run wild!

Find ideas for boards by using your blog categories or business categories. Search on Pinterest and see the drop down menu for more keywords. by Jen Vazquez Media Pinterest Manager

Step 4: Optimize Your Boards with Pinterest SEO

Time to give your boards some SEO love! Add a board description using related keywords to boost.  This means that you have to go back into the boards you create to add a description.  Use as many keywords as you can while still making it “readable” by humans to win the SEO game!

Summary

Pinterest is a powerful tool that can supercharge your service business and help you attract more clients. By strategically creating and organizing your Pinterest boards, you can showcase your expertise, increase your online visibility, and reach a wider audience.

Remember to evaluate your service categories, craft relevant boards, and optimize them with keywords on a regular basis to enhance their searchability. With a little creativity and consistent effort, you can harness the potential of Pinterest to grow your service business and stand out in a competitive market.

So, don’t wait any longer—start creating those irresistible Pinterest boards and watch your business soar to new heights!

If you don’t think you’ll have the time but want the benefit of Pinterest, consider hiring a Pinterest manager to allow you to work in your zone of genius.  Find out more or schedule a free consultation below!

Pinterest 101 in 2023: Why Use Pinterest for Your Service-Based Business (Part 1)

Pinterest 101 in 2023 - Why Use Pinterest for Your Service-Based Business part 1 by Jen Vazquez Media

Pinterest 101 for 2023: Why Use Pinterest for Your Service-Based Business

Pinterest 101 Series

Are you wanting to jump on Pinterest for your business? Are you already on Pinterest for your business but it doesn’t seem to be working?  Are you curious about using Pinterest for your business? If any of those questions resonated with you, then keep reading!

Can you believe it? I’ve been using Pinterest for my photography biz since 2009 – back when it was invite-only in beta!  And you know what? I didn’t keep all that Pinterest goodness to myself. Oh no, I helped my wedding pro friends figure it all out, and then launched Jen Vazquez Media in 2018 so I could help even MORE people!

Since 2018, I’ve been teaching Pinterest but let’s be real – I’ve bounced around a bit with all the questions I get and news or new tools that Pinterest launches. But, fear not! I’ve decided to take all of you business owners on a journey through Pinterest 101 over the next several blogs. That’s right, you can go from blog to blog and get all the help you need to master Pinterest like a pro!

In 2022, I was honored to be selected by Pinterest to be a Pinterest Pioneer helping in the Pinterest Business Community and also working with Tailwind to educate on Pinterest. These two honors are the highlights of my business!

Last weekend, I had an epiphany.  I realized that I haven’t created a whole series for those of you who are brand new to the Pinterest world – like, starting from scratch with no Pinterest Business account OR you’ve been using Pinterest for your business but you don’t feel like it’s working.

Whether you’re a total newbie or a seasoned pro, there’s something for everyone in this series. And TBH, there’s a lot of conflicting information out there. That’s why I always say if the Pinterest advice is older than six months, it’s probably as outdated as a pair of platform shoes (although are they coming back???).

Let’s start from the very beginning, shall we? We’re going to dive into all the juicy tweaks and details that’ll take your Pinterest business account from boring to mind-blowing and from not quite there to as effective as possible to get the most reach you can to skyrocket your business leads! Trust me, you won’t want to miss out on this ride.

So buckle up, my fellow Pinners, and let’s dive in!

Why Use Pinterest

Holy moly, there are countless reasons why Pinterest is a must-have tool for your business. But, let me hit you with some hard facts that will have you jumping on the Pinterest train in no time:

A bonus about Pinterest is the ultimate low-energy social media platform. There are no bullies here, just good vibes and inspiration! It’s a place where you can go to change your life and discover new ways of doing things. Talk about positive energy!

But, here’s the best part: Pinterest is the easiest social media platform.  My clients spend about an hour scheduling out your pins and have your next week or two covered. And the best part? It gives the biggest bang for their time buck. Trust me, you won’t want to miss out on all the benefits that Pinterest has to offer!

More stats that will shock and encourage you to try Pinterest for your business is the Lifespan of a Pin compared to other social media platforms.  Would you rather spend hours and hours on Instagram and continually have to create content, or spend an hour a week and have pins last year?  That’s right I have several pins that are still popular from 2014!  Here are 2023 stats for social media platforms:

    • TikTok Negligible unless you “go viral”
    • Facebook 1.75 hours
    • Instagram 20 hours
    • LinkedIn 24 hours
    • YouTube 8 hours
    • Pinterest 3.8 months
    • Blogs 2 years

Pinterest Business Account vs. Personal Account

Pro Tip: Consider if you want to manage two accounts.  If you don’t, convert your personal account because you can still pin, you’ll just have all your personal pins on a secret board.

It is imperative to have a business account if you want to use Pinterest to market your business.  There are two ways to do that. One is to convert your personal account to a business account and the second way is to create a new account as a business account. 

Choosing a username (the URL link https://www.pinterest.com/jenvazquezmedia) you want to use your business name or a version of your business name.  This way, when people search for your business, they find your profile, boards, and pins.  It’s the magic key that unlocks the door to your Pinterest account.  

 

Convert your Personal Pinterest Account to a Business account:

  1. Go to https://business.pinterest.com/ and click on the “Convert to a business account” button.
  2. Enter your personal account information and click on the “Convert” button.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process of converting your account to a business account.

Create a business account:

  1. Go to https://business.pinterest.com/ and click on the “Create a free business account” button.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process of setting up your business account.

Summary

To sum it all up, Pinterest is a powerful tool for businesses with over 450 million monthly active users and less competition compared to other social media platforms. It’s a low-energy platform that provides inspiration and positivity, and it’s also incredibly easy to use, with an hour of scheduling out pins enough to cover your next week or two. Plus, pins have a much longer lifespan than other social media platforms. And, we’ve also discussed the importance of having a business account on Pinterest and how to create one.

In this Pinterest 101 series, we’ll take you through everything you need to know about using Pinterest for your business. We’ll cover topics such as optimizing your profile, crafting killer pins, mastering Pinterest SEO, and how to read the analytics. So, buckle up and get ready to take your Pinterest game to the next level!

Next up Keywords! It’s a secret power to making Pinterest work for you!
